The 2017 theme “Pembroke Pines: I’m Part of It, I’m Proud of it,” provided a platform for residents and officials discuss growth in Pembroke Pines. “Today we stand in the Lobby of our beautiful new City Center,” said Pembroke Pines Mayor Frank C. Ortis, “We are all proud of the increased services and significant amenities our residents now enjoy. This building and the adjacent Commission Chambers and FRANK Art Gallery are excellent examples of government in action to benefit residents and business community.”
