Fort Lauderdale: Create your nighttime plan
The Nighttime Economy Culture and Policy (NITECAP) Alliance is a network of professionals responsible for nighttime economy advocacy, planning and management in US cities.
In making its March 2022 debut, the organization stated that its mission is “to share experiences, policies, and practices; raise awareness about nighttime economy and culture across disciplines; and highlight the value and importance of this role within city government.”
If your town or city is looking for foothold for its nighttime ecosystem, NITECAP would be an excellent place to start. Apply for membership here.
In fact, here is a primer from Sarah Hannah-Spurlock, Nighttime Economy Manager for the City of Fort Lauderdale. On behalf of NITECAP, Hannah-Spurlock authored “Creating a Nightlife Plan for your City.”
“What is required is an environment of collaboration, a recognition that the community’s nighttime is as relevant as their daytime, and a desire to improve service provision for residents and guests so they may enjoy a safe and vibrant life at night,” she summarizes.
