In our ongoing effort to bring you clear, timely information about the Town of Westlake, we have created a series we’re calling Town Topics. In this series, you'll get to know the ins and outs of all things Westlake and learn more about what makes us Distinctive by Design. We’ll share the latest news and updates and work to help set the record straight on topics that impact you.
You can find the latest or submit a question for a future Town Topic by visiting the Town Topics page of our site.
We've started the series by addressing a question we hear from time to time.
March 16, 2022Occasionally we are asked if we are planning to build a new town hall. In a word, the answer is NO. While we are open to the idea of investing in ourselves by eventually constructing and owning our own Town Hall, there are many projects in our Capital Improvement Plan that we want to tackle first. Some of these projects include construction and improvements of arterial roads and potentially expanding the Arts & Science building on the Westlake Academy campus. Should the Town decide to take a closer look at constructing a Town Hall facility, your input would play a large part in moving the project forward.
As many of you know, Westlake Town Hall is currently located at 1500 Solana Boulevard, Building 7 in the Terraces at Solana. The leased facility includes our council chambers, the municipal court, meeting space, and offices for your municipal team and a portion of our academic administrative staff members. We have been in this location since 2017 and are currently halfway through our 10-year lease on this space. If we extend our lease option, we would negotiate any renewal as we draw nearer to the end of the current contract.
We hope this clears up any confusion and helps keep you all up to date on topics that relate to your Town!
