In 2009, the City of Eustis Community Redevelopment Area (CRA) action plan identified an opportunity for a “plaza” at the intersection of Palmetto/Kensington/McDonald. This plaza is intended to establish a “true nexus point for the community” while stimulating business growth.
The City developed a site plan and improved the first phase of the Palmetto Plaza site via a Build-a-thon project. Neighborhood and community partners, including AmeriCorps and Lake-Sumter Habitat for Humanity participated in the construction. Phase I construction is complete and includes five (5) market pavilions, concrete pads, walkways and a community lawn area. Phase II will include restrooms, stage, and decorative pavement areas. The City is currently developing construction plans and investigating financing options for Phase II.
