Re-Engage for Good
                                      Re-engage, Recycle and Reinvigorate
Pembroke Pines' new green initiative seeks volunteers to increase recycling, reduce waste and encourage reuse. We welcome volunteers and concerned citizens from condominium associations, HOA's, multifamily buildings and neighborhoods.

                                         Message from Mayor Frank Ortis:

Engaged citizens create a vibrant community. Pembroke Pines' retiring residents (our baby boomers) not only understand the history and difficulty of our City challenges, they possess the skills, relationships and resources to tackle them. By recruiting talented citizens, spotlighting their work, and building a connector system of opportunities, we can address City problems at reduced cost -- and significantly impact the community's health long-term. This plan for citizen service will serve as the proposal for future grants to implement the community service projects.

We are looking for boomers that really want to be involved in making a difference and we really want their input. I know that I share with the residents of Pembroke Pines a deep abiding love and commitment for this great city and its people.

I believe you will find our plan to be a progressive, resourceful and collaborative approach to impact volunteering, helping address our pressing city needs through citizen service, while expanding volunteer opportunities in the City of Pembroke Pines. I am thankful for the contributions of every citizen and partner who helped develop our plan and who will play a role in implementing our plan. Together, we will share our time, talents and energy to show how Pembroke Pines is a City of Service!
