We are located in a rare area of Palm Beach County – west of Florida’s newest city (in 2017), Westlake. Five acres per lot is the least you can come by out here. Many are ten or twenty, and many are many more.
Life out here has it’s pros and cons. One of my favorite pros has always been the abundance of wildlife. However, lately it has gotten out of control.
The huge Minto development to our east – the City of Westlake – has been steadily building and is due to have a massive amount of residential and commercial development. All of this construction, along with Arden directly to our south, has been driving more and more wildlife our way, west of Westlake.
Also slated for development (by GL Homes, the last we heard) is the smaller tract of farmland that lies in between Westlake and the remaining private streets to the west, but right now, we believe it is the Westlake project making the most impact. Hence the name West of Westlake. Plus, it just sounds better than West of GL Homes or North of Arden, which technically, we are, as well as east of the L-8 or south of the old Santa Rosa Groves.
We, the makers of this website, can’t help but wonder, what will happen to all the wildlife being forced from their homes? Some people just don’t care and maybe you feel that way too. Maybe you are only here to see cute cat videos or something. That’s cool, and that link is right here: (coming soon). For the rest of you, please keep reading to find out if you would be interested in building an owl box and housing a family of owls.
