Key Colony Beach
Key Colony Beach is located at mile marker 53.5 on US Highway 1, which is known locally as the Overseas Highway. The city, called the “Gem of the Florida Keys,” is on an island just south of the Overseas Highway connected via a causeway with a very small bridge.
The majority of residences are on canals with quick access to the Gulf or Atlantic Ocean or have ocean views which make the city ideal for fishing and boating activities. In addition to the residences, there are many businesses and recreation in the city, including restaurants, a charter fishing fleet, marina, boat rentals, clothing store, gift shop, dive and tackle shop, liquor store, gas station, convenience store, hotels, 2 playgrounds, bocce courts, pickleball courts tennis courts, shuffleboard, and a 9-hole par-3 golf course.
The city was founded in the early fifties by developer Phil Sadowski, who began dredging around the island, adding to its size and increasing its height to six feet above mean sea level. The city was incorporated in September 1957, and is situated on 286 acres with approximately 1,400 units of housing. Key Colony Beach is governed by five city commissioners elected for two-year, staggered terms. City elections are non-partisan and are held each year on the 2nd Tuesday in March. Thirteen employees assist the city commission including a staff of four in the city clerk’s office, a five-member police department, and a staff of four in the building/public works department. Traditionally, the Mayor also serves as City Administrator, supervising staff and ongoing activities on a day-to-day basis.
