Plans for Clearwater waterfront unveiled

- Major changes could be coming to the waterfront in downtown Clearwater.

As it sits now – city leaders says the current, Coachman Park is under developed – and has the potential to revitalize downtown.

The new plan is almost three times the size of the current park and includes a larger venue for concerts and other events.

Clearwater hopes to bring more tourists to the downtown area something Connie Lehmer, a small business owner is in support of.

“I think it’s awesome,” Lehmer said.  “It would bring more people downtown, they have a lot of events in that park and it needs to be bigger.”’

Consultants over the project presented a draft to city council Tuesday.  

They’ll next hold several town-hall style meetings with the community.   It then goes back to city council to be approved for a city referendum vote.
