The city of Westmorland is located in northwestern Imperial County in the southeast corner of California. Imperial County is bordered on the north, south, west and east by Riverside County, the U.S./Mexico International Border, San Diego County, and Arizona’s western boundary respectively. Westmorland is located on State Highway 86 and is approximately 30 miles from the U.S./Mexico International Border. It is expected to experience significant growth in the future mainly due to the volume of commercial trucking traffic that flows through the city to and from Calexico. Located on the U.S. Mexico Border near Mexicali is Gateway of the Americas, an industrially/commercially concentrated complex designed to sustain and maximize the activities of the International Port of Entry. As development of business and industry grows within Gateway of the Americas, so will the demand for housing and public facilities in the areas surrounding it, such as Westmorland.
