In the fall of 1996 a proposed bill was introduced to the Broward County Legislative Delegation requesting to annex all the unincorporated area which is now known today as Southwest Ranches. The Town’s name came about through a local contest. The contest was to come up with a name for the newly formed city. The response was great and 122 different names were submitted. A vote was held on October 12, 1999 to select one of the top five names, and the Town of Southwest Ranches won.
On July 3, 1999, many of the Southwest Ranches Homeowners Associations sponsored a parade and picnic to declare the area’s independence. Many local, state and federal representatives spoke at the event which was a huge success!
Southwest Ranches, Located on the eastern edge of the Florida Everglades was incorporated to preserve its rural lifestyle. Because the area has many ranches and is located in the south western part of Broward County. The town has laws that keep homes from being built on lots of less than 1 acre. In order to conserve the town's rural lifestyle, the laws also generally stop streetlights and sidewalks from being constructed. To support its rural-equestrian lifestyle, the town has developed miles of multi-use trails.
