West Melbourne is an excellent example, worthy of study by city planners, of how new urban centers can develop and thrive. The city of West Melbourne got Brevard County support to separate from the burdensome tax clutches of Melbourne in 1959. It has never looked back in the decades since then and has grown into a composite city in its own right. However, it has also leveraged Melbourne assets and County resources for mutual benefit.
