In 2016, the citizens of Ocoee participated in an intensive planning and design process that resulted in the award-winning Downtown Ocoee Master Plan. In the Spring of 2017, the Downtown Master Plan implementation program was approved by the City Commission.
The City is currently in the midst of a more than $44 million capital projects program to enhance public spaces and key infrastructure in Downtown Ocoee. The City’s capital projects are underway and will create or expand public spaces along the western shore of beautiful Starke Lake. The projects will provide infrastructure to the downtown area, including a stormwater facility which will serve several blocks, that is critical to the revitalization of Downtown Ocoee.
Located at the City’s Municipal Campus, the expansion of the Lakeshore Center, West Orange County’s premier event destination, is complete, offering the community a state-of-the-art Center that has space for a 400-seat event. Bill Breeze Park and the Withers-Maguire House grounds have been upgraded with new landscaping and outdoor event spaces.
Bluford Avenue utilities upgrade and streetscape is complete, offering expanded sewer and a downtown trail connecting Silver Star Road to just south of Ocoee Middle School.
