General Information

Incorporated in June 1959, North Port had 87,000 residentially platted lots, and 200-plus acres available for commercial development in their 76 square miles. Recent voluntarily annexed parcels raise our acreage to nearly 103 square miles, offering significantly more space for further residential and commercial development. The population today is just over 34,000. Population is expected to reach 56,287 by 2010, just a few short years away. North Port's median age has dropped from 48.7 to 40.8 in ten years, due in large part to our excellent school system.

The semi-tropical climate and nearly perfect weather conditions lend themselves well to North Port's comfortable leisurely style of living. Vegetation abounds and even novice gardeners maintain beautiful lawns and flower gardens. The area's many canals and lakes are sources of pleasure for fishermen and boaters.
