The Westlake Community
About Westlake

Originally settled in 1847, Westlake was incorporated in 1956. Today, the Town of Westlake is home to several communities, all of which share a commitment to excellence but possess unique character and charm. All residents live in single-family homes and there is a golf course in town.

The median age in Westlake is 47, and 51% of residents are female. The community's top employers are:
  • Fidelity Investments
  • CoreLogic & First American
  • TD Auto (Formerly Chrysler Financial)

Several companies have offices in Solana, a high-profile corporate campus along State Highway 114. Solana's Village Circle also provides a mix of retail spaces and restaurants, plus the 294-room Marriott Solana hotel.

Taxes
The sales tax rate in Westlake is 8.25%. Of the money collected, 6.25% goes to the State of Texas, 1% to the Town of Westlake, and the remaining 1% to a local economic development fund.

Westlake Academy
In 2003, the town raised bond funds to build the Westlake Academy, an open-enrollment charter school owned and operated by the town. All residents are eligible to enroll in the rigorous International Baccalaureate (IB) curriculum.
