Clermont has been planning a new police station for years. The booming city has about doubled its force. The problem has been finding the best site for the station. Finally, the city settled on a corner of its recently purchased Clermont Community Center, which also includes its Clermont Arts & Recreation Center as well. The city purchased the 30-acre site, which was the Celebration of Praise Church, for about $6 million.
Now that Clermont has settled on its new police station site, it is selling a 3.97 acre parcel of land at the corner of Hooks Street and Citrus Tower Blvd., where at one time it had planned to build the police station. Asking price is $1.9 million for the land with a C2 commercial zoning. With that comes an amazing view from the top of Clermont overlooking the city and Lake Minnehaha.
