By 1987 more than 10,000 people worked in Westlake. By 1990, 27,018 residents called the City home, some occupying new executive homes or new luxury apartments or condominiums, and others moving into well-maintained, existing housing stock. The period also included the opening of a new public library and a new post office.
The early 1990s saw the construction of several new city facilities including a police station and two new fire stations, as well as the acquisition of a City golf course, now called Meadowood, and the opening of a new City-owned Westside Nature Park off Bradley Road. The Promenade of Westlake Shopping Center brought a new array of shopping options to the west side of the City. In 1998, the City built an 80,000 square foot recreation center in the midst of an 86-acre park and in 2006 added 19,000 square feet to it.
