Bicentennial & Centennial Celebrations
year 2011 was a special one as it marked the bicentennial of Westlake's
founding as Dover Township and the centennial of Dover's incorporation
as a village.
While the City celebrates, the careful growth continues with Nordson Corporation's new headquarters occupied in December of 2010 and Phase I of Cuyahoga Community College's new Westshore Campus nearing completion. Work continues on Hospice House West and the relocation of a portion of Clemens Road. University Hospitals has announced a $100 million dollar renovation of St. John Medical Center.
Today, Westlake continues to be a prestigious destination point for individuals as well as corporations. It is a special mix of open space and show-stopping homes, trees and office buildings, industry and community facilities. Once a premier farming settlement, it is now a thriving suburban community.
With the passage of an $84 million levy by the voters of Westlake in 2010, the Westlake City Schools broke ground in 2011 on a new 230,000 square foot high school and a new 100,000 square foot middle school. The old middle school will be renovated into an intermediate school in 2012. Also planned are new and renovated elementary schools.
