Clermont to Annex More Land

Center Lake Properties wants the City of Clermont to annex 584 acres of land known as Black West located southwest of Florida's turnpike to built 1,300 homes and up tp 200,000 commercial space. This is the second time Center Lake Properties has visited this proposal as it was originally turned down by complaints of residents about crowded schools. Also Clermont is suppose to have joint planning review with Lake County on of any development outside the city. This would leave 140 acres within boundries of joint planning with the county. If approved the county could limit homes to 1,100 due to sewage capacity and schools and roads would need to be improved to handle increase in resident schools and traffic. This meeting is scheduled today to vote on this request.
