Clermont’s perfect location along the beautiful shores of Lake Minneola and at the midpoint of the Florida Coast-to-Coast Trail (C2C), the proposed project includes the enhancement and redevelopment of the 8th Street area.
Florida’s C2C Trail spans approximately 250 miles and links the varied communities between St. Petersburg and Titusville, allowing multimodal users to enjoy the best of Florida. It is part of the Florida Greenway and Trails System plan that recognizes the economic impact to communities along the trail.
The preliminary plans include seating, picnic areas, restrooms and an enhanced flow of pedestrian and bicycle traffic on the trail. An artistic monument recognizing the entire trail and highlighting Clermont’s history as a model community for tail users is also included.
Additionally, the project calls for the installation of a docking facility for a maximum of 76 boats and eight dedicated jet-ski slips. Currently, there are no public day-use docking facilities on the Clermont Chain of Lakes.
