Margate founder Jack Marquese considered his town a gateway to the western part of the county, so in 1965 he used part of his surname and a noun to create the city name, according to records.
    The gate has been replaced by a pair of shopping malls that flank the city's main portal.
Today, Margate is growing more populous, younger and more diverse. Between the 1990 and 2000 census, the city grew more than 25 percent to 53,909 residents while the total number of families increased 13.9 percent to 14,331.
In the census, Hispanics made up 15.3 percent of the population while residents 65 and older dropped from 30.4 percent to 21 percent, or from 6,384 residents to 4,268.
The percentage of owner-occupied homes increased from 78.3 percent in 1990 to 80.1 percent in 2000.
One in five families with children was headed by single mothers, while such families headed by single fathers increased to 2.7 percent.
    The city is grappling with major redevelopment issues. Vacant shopping centers and a hodge-podge of signs along major thoroughfares are among the eyesores city officials hope to improve.
    To get the job done, the city has created a Community Redevelopment Agency, and is trying to develop a plan to revitalize and beautify the deteriorating business districts.
    Like many older cities, Margate is faced with a flat tax base because little land is left to develop. Also, a large number of condo dwellers pay little or no taxes after a $25,000 homestead exemption.
    Joining in a growing trend, Margate has begun charging developers a one-time fee per house and tucking away the money in a fund for future school needs, such as purchasing portables.
    Still, economic development is not at a standstill.
    Margate is home to a large senior population, and boasts a city-run senior center that offers an enviable variety of programs and services.
    The city also offers one of the most-sophisticated shuttle bus services in Broward County.
Margate's Fire Department is one of the city's jewels.
    The City Commission meets at 7:30 p.m. on the first and third Wednesdays of every month.
