Purchase price is $400,000 for 2.73 acres.

Next we will receive an update on the Cell Tower that AT&T plans to install in Mount Dora to improve service. We will then continue discussions regarding an Ordinance for Use of Public Property for Special Events. After that we will continue discussions of the 2019-2020 CIP Budget. Our Work Session concludes with a joint meeting off-site. City Council, CRA Advisory Committee and the Parks and Recreation Advisory Board will meet at Charles Ave and Tremain Street to discuss potential one-way traffic flow to add parallel parking spaces on Charles Avenue.
