CLEARWATER, Fla. — The City of Clearwater is moving forward with its “Imagine Clearwater” project, which is a plan to redesign the downtown waterfront.

Last week city council approved up to $30 million in funding but the total cost of the project could exceed $55 million.

That $30 million will include a total redesign of the waterfront including Coachman Park.

It would include an entertainment venue at Coachman Park, estimated to open in the summer of 2021.
