WESTFIELD CLOSES OUT 2017 WITH RECORD ECONOMIC GROWTH

 

Westfield, IN – The figures are in for Westfield’s 2017 economic development activity, and some of the numbers are record highs for the community.

 

“Westfield’s growth, particularly in the form of single family housing, demonstrates that more and more people are coming to our community to enjoy our great schools and overall quality of life,” Mayor Andy Cook said. “Westfield is a great place for all ages, but is an ideal location for young families ready to raise children in a welcoming, wonderful community.”

 

The Economic and Community Development Department reports seeing 113 filings in 2017, with a total value of permits at $286.5 million. Filings represent commercial and residential projects, including development plans, plats, zoning changes and more.

 

There were a total of 1,001 permits issued in the year, which is a record high for the community.

 

Westfield also saw a total of 719 single family home starts, also a record high.

 

2017 also saw Westfield being named the new training camp of the Indianapolis Colts, and a major announcement by Bastion-Toyota which will be building a 90,000-square-foot facility and bringing 87 high-wage jobs.
