WESTLAKE, Ohio (WOIO) - LaCentre Conference & Banquet Facility in Westlake has closed, and the venue is in the process of issuing refunds.

Westlake Mayor Dennis Clough told 19 News that the management team running the facility parted ways with the business which caused the shutdown.

The city says the closure is not COVID-19 related, and officials hope the party center and meeting space will reopen sometime in 2021.

Opened in 2003, LaCentre is a 105,000-square-foot facility that cost $33 million to build.
