May 31, 2017 — Dr. Lynnette Long Proposal
Nov 15, 2017 — Florida Historical Marker Council Consideration
The council—part of the Florida Department of State/Division of Historical Resources—discusses the proposal, then tables it pending changes in the text that would bring it into compliance with their historical marker criteria. Namely, they want the text to address older events.
Feb 21, 2018 — Florida Historical Marker Council Approval
Apr 25, 2018 — Ft. Lauderdale PR&B Board Votes to Support
Fort Lauderdale’s Parks, Recreation and Beaches Board consider the marker proposal and vote in favor of it. So far, I only have the agenda.
May 23, 2018 — PR&B Board Withdraws Support
The board votes 12 to 1 to withdraw its support. You can find a draft version of the minutes here.
The city commission could still approve the marker, but that appears unlikely. They’ve met twice since the PR&B vote, and at neither meeting did they address the marker proposal.
