When George T. Clark designed The Casino on Berckman Street in Fruitland Park, he envisioned a local showcase with all the modern conveniences—a large stage, dressing rooms, steam heat, running water, and even electric lights.
The year was 1914. America was readying for World War I.
Thursday night the 99-year old Casino building is hosted a public meeting to air a plan that will change Fruitland Park forever, doubling the city’s population in two short years.
Mayor Chris Bell called for the meeting to gauge community concerns over the proposed Villages of Fruitland Park, which promises 1,972 new homes and an estimated 3,648 new residents.
