Dania Beach Oasis - Rebuilding Neighborhoods

Oasis Projects

What is a Dania Beach Oasis? 

Dania Beach was the first incorporated city in Broward County. The City has a vibrant history, and has for many years focused on improving the physical quality of the City’s neighborhoods and improving the quality of life for its residents and visitors. The purpose of these efforts is to foster neighborhood stability, reduce crime and alleviate blight. Dania Beach’s latest revitalization approach is the Oasis Project, an incremental effort designed to improve specific streets with the goal of fostering neighborhood pride and improvement, and through a “ripple effect” induce owners and tenants in the City to work together to beautify the City, to increase property values, and to reduce crime. At its core, the Oasis Program is a pro-active approach to crime prevention by making improvements to residential and public property to deter low level crime, anti-social behavior and property neglect through a partnership between the target community and the City of Dania Beach.

  • Infrastructure improvement;
  • Improvements to private property through volunteerism;
  • Increased voluntary code compliance and building department review;
  • Improvements to public landscaping, street lighting, and streetscaping;
  • Signage and boundary setting;
  • Possible changes in vehicular and pedestrian traffic patterns;
  • Increased citizen involvement and cooperation;
  • Increased law enforcement attention, as necessary.

City Manager Robert Baldwin has implemented Dania Beach Oasis - Rebuilding Neighborhoods, an innovative community project that is improving the city one street at a time.

"Disorder in a neighborhood leads to crime. So we try to create a better area, a safer environment and crime will be reduced. By beautifying a street, the residents see the improvements and start improving their own properties. That's why we call it the Oasis Program because it grows. We plant seeds and the residents actually react to that by improving their own properties. We really think that this is having such a good effect on Dania Beach."
