Coral Springs, FL – We are proud to announce that the city’s Public Works Department has received national re-accreditation through the American Public Works Association (APWA). 

The department was first accredited in 2017, becoming the first agency accredited by APWA in Broward County. Accreditation is granted for four years with a mandatory update every two years to demonstrate continuous service improvement. 

“Accreditation is a road map that allows us to define our organization’s goals and track major milestones,” said Public Works Director, John Norris. “It shows our commitment to excellence, ensures fiscal responsibility, and improves efficiency in operations.”

Accreditation Manager indicated during the reaccreditation process, that they would be using the Coral Springs strategic planning and budget process as Business Models for other agencies working towards accreditation.

The APWA standards cover all areas of public works services, from equipment and fleet management to stormwater and flood management, engineering services, water and sewer infrastructure, and solid waste management.  Further information concerning APWA accreditation is available at
