What is 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 parternship between the target community and the City of Dania Beach.
