The next steps in updating Clermont’s Comprehensive Plan include informational meetings and then the sharing of ideas, concerns and priorities from community members, business owners and residents via an on-line survey.

A comprehensive plan is the rulebook a municipality uses for responsible planning and development for the next 15-20 years. Clermont’s current plan was last updated in 2009.

With guidance from the East Central Florida Regional Planning Council, a second community workshop will be held on Thursday, February 22. An additional virtual meeting option will be online Thursday, Feb. 29.

Both meetings will be interactive and look at the impact of projected population growth on public services and facilities, review the Comprehensive Plan update process and explain the importance of the community survey.

Important dates to remember are:

  • Thursday, Feb. 22, the in-person workshop will be held at the Clermont City Center, 620 W. Montrose Street and begins at 6 p.m.
  • The virtual workshop will begin at 6 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 29 with this link: The password is CLERMONT24 (case sensitive).
  • The community survey will be available online beginning Feb. 22 and remain available through March 30. You can use this link:

When the survey ends, the data collected will be sorted and analyzed and become the foundation for the updated plan.
