The three-mile stretch of University Drive from the Sawgrass Expressway to State Road 827 will be renamed Michael Moskowitz Drive, after the prominent Florida Democratic Party operative, influential lawyer and lobbyist who entertained Presidents at his Parkland home.
Moskowitz died at age 68 from pancreatic cancer.
The honor came as a surprise to his son, Broward County Commissioner Jared Moskowitz, whose former colleagues in the Legislature submitted the suggestion that the Legislature approved in its annual road-naming bill (SB 160).
“It’s overwhelming,” said Moskowitz, a former Parkland City Commissioner now running for Congress. “My dad would have absolutely loved it.”
