There are just over 800 residents of Key Colony Beach, but the population peaks to about 4,000 in mid-winter. The city was founded in the early fifties by developer Phil Sadowski and was incorporated in September 1957. The city is situated on 286 acres and contains approximately 1,400 units of housing. Many property owners make their homes available to visitors for rent on a monthly or weekly basis. Our upscale quiet tropical island atmosphere draws people from all over the world.
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 six-member police department, and a staff of three 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.
