Today, your provider of apartments and townhomes for rent in West Chester, Ohio, The Lakes At West Chester Village is going to discuss the lesser-known facts and amenities that our town can provide you.
A Brief History Of West Chester
West Chester has a colorful history that happens to not be common knowledge here among the residents. West Chester was created from the Liberty Township, voted into separation by the Butler County Commissioners on June 2, 1823. Initially, the size of the township was not given a boundary, but in totality, it only spanned the small size of 35 square miles. Additionally, when West Chester first separated from the Liberty Township it was known as the “Union” Township before becoming commonly known as West Chester, and officially renamed in 2000.
Are you still unfamiliar with what a township is? Essentially, a township is governed by three members on a board of trustees. Every four years, an election is held so that the citizens may be able to pick their governing leaders. In recent years, three votes have been held to determine if the community wants to become a city instead of a township, and all three times our community voted to stay the same. Obviously, West Chester community members are happy with what we have.
West Chester Parks
Living outside of Cincinnati has its perks, as we have plenty of space for trees and wildlife. Additionally, our township has a wonderful parks program that oversees the maintenance and preservation of five beautiful parks. When living in West Chester, one can expect easy access to fun outdoor activities like playgrounds, hiking and running trails, fishing, picnic and firepit areas, pedal boat rentals, dog parks, and so much more.
