By a greater than two-to-one majority, those in favor of incorporation won out, and Coconut Creek became Broward Countys 32nd municipality. It may not have been obvious at that moment, but the creation of Coconut Creek ended a dozen years of city-building throughout the county. It also underscored the end of agriculture as an economic mainstay of the region. The new city had a distinctly small-town feel, with most municipal functions handled by volunteers.

Before long, a population explosion brought new residential and commercial developments, forcing city leaders to confront issues of managing growth, protecting the environment, and maintaining the quality of life for city residents. The success of these efforts is seen in todays Coconut Creek.
