New River Castle.

The commission voted 3-2 on a resolution for The New River Castle, and the the land on which it sits, received a historic Landmark designation. unfortunately The remaining lots, 11 and 12, are not part of this decision. while This is an unusual approach, we still consider it a success.

The Focus to gain new members

However, the trust still has to continually raise capital for all ancillary expenses Associated with any small business or non-profit organization such as application fees, project research, office supplies, and other expenses. however, due to the former Holiday Home Tour and the continued effort to spend judiciously, the Trust is currently solvent and stable

With His Work Ethic and many years of commitment to historic preservation and Broward Trust, we are still a solid organization because of his loyalty.
