Clermont set to complete Victory Pointe project this summer

The Lake County Water Authority is a partner in the project, along with FDEP, EPA, and SJRWMD.

The City of Clermont is making plans for a grand opening of Victory Pointe this summer. The $9.5-million stormwater project and urban, passive park, is critical to the success of the City’s award-winning Master Plan aimed at revitalizing the downtown and waterfront.

Nearly a year ago, on June 14, 2017, the City began construction on Victory Pointe. The 10- acre site will be the first major project completed from the Downtown-Waterfront Master Plan approved in 2015. The innovative park will combine recreational elements, such as trails and a performance area, with an extensive stormwater facility. The stormwater facility will enhance drainage downtown and improve the quality of water entering Lake Minneola, a State of Florida-designated “Impaired Water.”

City officials say the project will likely be finished in late June with a grand opening slated on Friday, July 27, 2018.
