Port St. Lucie

Saint Lucie County

Year Founded: 1961


The first Port St. Lucie city elections were held in the late 1960s, however it was not until 1977 that the first elected mayor took office. Although originally designed as a retirement community, the city has evolved to predominantly include a younger, middle-class population.
