The City of Deerfield Beach shares a common border with the cities of Pompano Beach, Boca Raton, Lighthouse Point, Hillsboro Beach and Coconut Creek. The City has an inter-local agreement with Broward County. In addition, the city interacts formally and informally with numerous state and regional agencies, utility companies, authorities and special districts for provision and regulation services.
The housing needs assessment over the next five years for this plan was gathered from the 2009-2013 American Community Survey and supported by the 2013 US Census Bureau. Deerfield Beach is a suburban community located in Broward County, FL with a population of 78,041. The beachfront city is a popular destination for both permanent and seasonal residents including the region’s senior population. In 2004, the population was estimated at 77,039 with a projection to increase to 80,880 by 2010 and 93,040 by 2020. The population growth from the 2004 information and the 2013 US Census represents a 20.8% increase; however that did not occur. Like much of Broward County, Deerfield Beach, FL is essentially built out, which is contributed to this unanticipated projected shortfall.
The city is now looking at how to accommodate future growth through infill development and redevelopment. The estimated median household income in 2013 is $38,353 with a household size of 2.38 residents compared to $34,041 at 2.02 residents in 2000.
