Delray Beach recently passed an ordinance to regulate Sober Homes. Several neighborhoods in Fort Lauderdale have been dealing with similar issues for years. Until recently there seemed to be no hope of regulations. Given Delray’s recent actions, Poinciana Park passed a resolution asking the Fort Lauderdale City Commission to move on similar regulations. You can read their resolution here PPCA Board Action requesting enactment of Governess of Halfway Homes
An easy to understand description of the Delary Beach Ordinance is provided here Explain No 25-17
