Residents like Hillsboro Beach the way it is.
"People want the town to stay the same," said David Denman, the town clerk and chief town administrator.
And why not?
The 3.2 mile-long town has no congestion and hardly any crime. And almost every one of the 1,761 residents lives within a short walk of the ocean.
Some live in the most beautiful and expensive homes in Broward County. The 60 single-family houses on so-called Millionaire's Mile pay an average of $42,000 a year in property taxes.
Most of the remaining residents live in condominiums.
Hillsboro Beach is about 900 feet at its widest point. The only way in or out is along its only major road, State Road A1A.
Town hall is at 1210 Hillsboro Mile.Copyright © 2014, Los Angeles Times
