Neighborhoods & HOAs
Distinctive by Design
A common question about the difference between the Town's jurisdiction and the HOA's jurisdiction is what services are provided by each. Westlake is unique and may not provide the same services or programs as our neighboring communities.
Due to the low tax rate in the community the Town of Westlake utilizes a municipal service delivery model that focuses on providing specific services, outsourcing through privatization and contracting with other government agencies all while still providing exceptional customer service to our residents.
Developers for new developments enter into contracts with the Town of Westlake called Development Agreements that require conditions for construction, installation, and maintenance of certain public and private improvements or amenities within a subdivision.
Typical Services Provided
The Town of Westlake and its neighborhoods specialize in different services to maintain the quality of service and aesthetic character the residents of the town have grown to love. The Town typically provides and maintains services for infrastructure such as water, sanitary sewer, the town's ductbank system, thoroughfares (as indicated on the town' comprehensive plan), parks, and of course Westlake Academy.
Neighborhoods with HOAs are typically responsible for the rest of the development's infrastructure such as common spaces, public and private open spaces, landscaping, irrigation, internal private roads, trails, lighting, signage, and fences or walls.
Additionally, there may be franchise utilities within a development such as gas, electricity, or internet cable which is the sole responsibility of said franchisee to provide and maintain.
