From The Mayor’s Desk

I am excited to have the opportunity to share with our citizens, entering into a new era in Westover.  I am very proud to have been elected the third Mayor in the City’s history and follow the groundwork laid out over the last 15 years. It is my hope that the citizens who elected me will take the opportunity to provide input into the future development and growth of the community.

We are blessed with a rich heritage in Westover, because of being an established community for well over 100 years, even though incorporated since only 2001. The incorporation of Westover was decided on by the citizens to maintain our identity and for our residents to have the opportunity to benefit from the US HWY 280 corridor. The comprehensive plan, adopted in 2002, carefully allowed for the continuation of the Old Town, Rural community along with managed growth along the 280 corridor.

We have also been very fortunate to have new residential subdivisions built, including Willow Oaks, The Villages of Westover and Carden Crest. These new subdivisions have served to allow residential housing available in many sizes and styles and have also allowed for the inclusion of many new and bright citizens, who are anxious to make a difference in the community they live in.

Professional development and services have evolved in the course of the past 15 years, to include a municipal fire department, building inspections, permitting, and code adoption targeting the health, safety, and welfare of all the citizens of the community.

There have been many other positive accomplishments such as the City Library, The Westover Seniors’ activities, Music in the Park, Westover Fields at the Park, the Westover community storm shelter, area storm warning sites, the Christmas parade, and participation in the Westover Business Alliance to be continued and built upon, to enhance the future of our City.

I want to thank you for visiting our site, and invite you to get involved. Everyone has ideas and talents that can be instrumental in making Westover a “WOW” city. Whether you are an individual or a business, I’d love to hear from you and welcome your input.
