Westlake is celebrating its bicentennial this year, while Bay Village celebrated its bicentennial last year. These long established cities have their own history and attributes. Westlake covers 15.9 square miles, with a population of 31,719. Bay Village covers 4.6 square miles, with a population of 16,087. Westlake has had controlled development over the years, with planned separation of housing development areas, retail establishments and industrial properties. While Bay Village has sought to maintain its village atmosphere, housing development areas have stayed up-to-date with the changing times.
Westlake and Bay Village are convenient to everything that one could want, including a 20 minute commute to downtown Cleveland and the airport. And, now the cities have more educational opportunities with the addition of the Tri-C Westshore Campus, newly opened in January. Between the two cities, buyers can find the home that meets their required criteria with a location that has the amenities they desire.
