istory
The original plans for the IJsselmeerpolders saw the land being used for agriculture. However, after World War II housing was needed for the rapidly growing population of Amsterdam and two towns were planned in the polders Oostelijk Flevoland and Zuidelijk Flevoland. The town in Oostelijk Flevoland became Lelystad. The town in Zuidelijk Flevoland was still called "Zuidweststad" (English: South West City) on the first sketches, but in the 1970s it became called "Almere", named after the early medieval name of the Zuiderzee. The first house in Almere was finished in 1976. At that time the town was
still controlled by the "Openbaar Lichaam Zuidelijke IJsselmeerpolders" (Z.IJ.P.), with a Landdrost. In 1984 Almere became an official municipality. Originally, Almere was envisioned as a town with multiple centres. This idea was later abandoned in favor of allowing neighbourhoods like Tussen de Vaarten to be built. There is also a difference between the way houses are built in the oldest and the newest parts of the city. The housing plan in Almere in the 1970s was basic functionality and a levelling of social status. However, starting in the 1990s more exclusive homes with striking designs were built (e.g., in the "Regenboogbuurt").

ity counci
The first local council was installed on 2 January 1984 in the presence of the then minister of the Interior Koos Rietkerk. The council elections took place on 21 September 1983. Prior to 1984 Almere had an "Adviesraad", which was chosen every 2 years (1978-1980, 1980-1982, 1982-1984). This "Adviesraad" was made up of different political parties similar to a local council. On 11 March 1977 the first "adviescommissie" was elected. It consisted of 5 people that were chosen on personal title.
Since 1998, the council of Almere has a total of 39 members.
