Master Plan Updates

The City of Clermont is delivering on its promises with its award-winning Master Plan. We share frequent updates at , but here are some highlights:

  • The Boat Ramp is complete and the public is invited to a ribbon cutting at 10 a.m. Fri., Jan. 10 at 140 East Ave. The new, larger boat ramp is located just east of Waterfront Park and offers four ramps, 102 parking spots and 10 mooring slips, as well as new restrooms.

  • Kehlor Recreation Center is now open. Clermont's city council and city manager celebrated with a ribbon cutting Nov. 15; view the video recap here. The new senior facility, located on the east side of downtown, now offers a variety of fun activities; view the schedule here.

  • Downtown Streetscape construction began Oct. 21 on improvements to West Avenue and Osceola Street with an estimated completion of Summer 2020. The 7th Street extension of Legacy Loop is nearly complete. Next up, Osceola Street will close for construction between 7th & 8th streets beginning Jan. 6, 2020.

  • The Art Walk's adjacent commercial building has broken ground. The Art Walk is estimated to be completed by the end of 2020; the brick walkway will connect Montrose Street to Minneola Avenue and will feature a covered portion and a grassy, open-air space for vendor tents.

  • City Limit Gateway Features are completed on State Road 50 at its intersections with Lake Boulevard to the east and with 12th Street to the west.

  • The Clermont Wi-Fi Trail is live in limited locations along the South Lake Trail.

  • Victory Pointe, the first major project completed, is successfully being utilized as an event site, park and stormwater treatment facility. It will be expanded to maximize its potential now that the boat ramp has been moved. Here's why it won 2019 Best Small Project.
