MOUNT DORA — You might already consider downtown a great place. Now it’s official. The Florida Chapter of the American Planning Association recently announced downtown Mount Dora as the first winner of the Florida Great Places — People’s Choice Award. An award presentation took place late last month at Sunset Park. Downtown Mount Dora — which was packed last month with visitors, right, to the Mount Dora Craft Fair — was selected in online voting over downtown Venice, Clematis Street in downtown West Palm Beach, downtown Winter Park and the Riverside Arts Market in Jacksonville. The awards program was created “to highlight the state’s exceptional places and the communities and people that have created them,” according to a news release. Earlier this year, Mount Dora was named one of the 20 best small towns to visit in 2014 by Smithsonian Magazine.
