New Web camera focuses on downtown Tavares construction

RELEASE DATE: June 9, 2008

TAVARES — As Lake County embarks on one of its largest capital construction projects, curious Web surfers can check on the progress of the new office building and parking garage in downtown Tavares with only a click of a mouse button.

Main Street Construction
The Lake County offices of Information Technology and Information Outreach installed a Web camera last week atop the Lake County Historical Courthouse, located at 317 W. Main St. in Tavares.

“I’m excited about this addition as I see the live web camera as an opportunity for the citizens of Lake County to see the project’s progression from start to finish without having to visit downtown Tavares,” said Jim Bannon, Director of the Lake County Department of Facilities Development & Management.

The camera towers over the construction site across the street, which will be the future home for offices of the Lake County Property Appraiser and Tax Collector, as well as a six-story parking garage. Construction on the projects kicked off in April. The two-story, 28,000-square-foot office building and parking garage with 1,500 spaces are scheduled to be completed in summer 2009.

The Web camera provides a live video feed of the construction site.
