Innovative Victory Pointe Has Opened Up Huge Opportunities
In the summer of 2018, The City of Clermont opened up the $9.5-million stormwater project and urban, passive park “Victory Pointe” in a move that is having a regional and statewide impact.
The 10-acre site has been lauded as a clear statement of Clermont’s ability to come together and plan smart and develop quickly. It is just the first of the major developments to come in a range of plans, to re-energize both the waterfront and downtown areas.
