clermont florida homes for sale: Victory Pointe Clermont Florida - 07/27/18 12:47 PM
Victory Pointe in Clermont, Florida had it's ribbon cutting today. After first thought, you might not care about a $9.5 million stormwater system/urban park. However, when you think about it a little bit this is a big deal for Clermont. In fact, it is a very big deal.

This stormwater system solves that problem. So, look for the downtown Clermont area to see more development and redevelopment in the very near future.

It's that time of year again in Clermont Florida. It's hot and the sun is shining bright. You have your towel, your sun screen and are ready to go. You walk down to the community pool and you are immediately disappointed.

Is there a Zipline Attraction in Clermont, Florida's future?

In a recent Orlando Sentinel column, Clermont Zip Line Attraction Could Work If Done Properly, it states that the City of Clermont is looking into a possible zip line attraction that would start at the Citrus Tower and descend down to Lake Minneola. If this happens, I will ride it. I will love it. I will tell EVERYBODY about it. However, I doubt it happens.

clermont florida homes for sale: Clermont Florida History Flashback...1958. - 05/25/13 06:13 AM
I recently stumbled across this picture and was fascinated by it. This is the first Publix in Clermont, Florida.

It used to be an All American Grocery store back in 1958, but was purchased by Publix. This was located I believe on Montrose Street, just down the street from Hanks Electric. Publix used this store until the South Lake Plaza opened in 1965. For those of you wondering, the South Lake Plaza is now where Gold's Gym and Kmart is. The founder of Publix, George Jenkins, dontated this old location to the city of Clermont to be used … (0 comments)
