West Lakes Partnership, Inc.
West Lakes Partnership seeks to build pathways to stability, power and generational wealth alongside residents of West Lakes.
Our community development initiative was created by resident leaders to help ensure the preservation of its cultural heritage and the vision of a thriving community where its residents can live, work, learn and play. Our key priorities include housing stabilization, homeownership and improved neighborhood amenities.
Our operations are funded privately, through a combination of private donations, board giving and development fees. Led by a 15 member board (10 of which are residents of the West Lakes neighborhoods), WLP’s approach is geared toward housing rehabilitation and spurring further investment in pockets of disinvestment within our neighborhoods.
"I am a believer in the Majora Carter’s quote that “You don't have to move out of your neighborhood to live in a better one"

About the Neighborhood
Anchored by four beautiful lakes, houses of great worship and the famous Camping World Stadium, the communities of West Lakes are made up of the five neighborhoods between Parramore and Washington Shores. We represent almost 3,500 residents living west of Orange Blossom Trail, east of John Young Parkway, south of Highway 50/Colonial Drive and north of Gore Street. We are the fantastic five neighborhoods of Lake Lorna Doone, Rock Lake, Clear Lake Cove, Luola Terrance/Lake Sunset and Clearlake: Bunche Manor/Hollando.
