Every year, the University of Florida’s Bureau of Economic and Business Research produces a population estimate for each city throughout Florida. The Planning Department compares this to the amount of certificate of occupancies for houses, apartments, demolitions, foreclosures, annexations that we have had in the same time period. The State of Florida uses a multiplier for group homes (nursing homes, adult congregate living facilities and apartments) which usually accounts for the difference.
The current population estimate for West Melbourne is 20,250.
The current city limit size is 10.31 square miles.
