Residents Vote to Make Westlake Palm Beach County’s 39th Municipality

John Carter
Westlake, FL – Residents within the Seminole Improvement District have voted unanimously to create the city of Westlake with a charter and founding city council. A canvassing board certified the ballots on June 20.

Westlake is home to a 3,800-acre project being developed by Minto Communities. 

Approved plans call for 4,500 homes and 2.2 million square feet of non-residential commercial and employment center zoning. 

The Palm Beach County Commission approved Westlake and amendments to the county’s comprehensive plan in October 2014.

“As the largest landowner in Westlake, we will work constructively with the new city administration with a focus on responsible and visionary growth,” said John Carter, vice president of Minto Communities-Florida.

“We will also continue to work with Palm Beach County on a previously agreed transportation plan as well as land for parks, fire station, sheriff substation, and solutions to drainage issues that will benefit the City of Westlake and central Palm Beach County.”
