The community's vision for the future
captures our rich, colorful history and blends
it - beautifully - into the spirit of modern life.
As one of the oldest communities on the east coast of Florida, Fort Pierce has borne witness to the changing tides of
history - as well as the changing tides of the Atlantic Ocean along Hutchinson Island - for over 104 years. The days of
one-room log houses and quiet river commerce has given way to diverse possibilities as the city has grown to over
41,000 residents, but the echoes of the rural past can still be felt in the peaceful quality of the lives our residents lead
just a short distance from the hustle and bustle of both West Palm Beach and Orlando. Ours is a diverse yet neighborly
community, embracing both the richness of our heritage and the promise of the future in St. Lucie County Downtown,
within sight of the timeless waters of the Indian River Lagoon, affords our residents contemporary shopping, dining and a
range of entertainment and activities
