In the fall of 2015, the National Council headquartered in Irving Texas approached the executive leadership of our Council and Gulf Ridge Council to consider joining forces to create a new, united Scout Council.  West Central Florida Council encompasses Pinellas County and the western half of Pasco County.  Gulf Ridge serves eight Counties:  Citrus, Hardee, Hernando, Highlands, Hillsborough, the eastern half of Pasco, Polk and Sumter.  These two Scout Councils are led by a group of dedicated volunteer Scouters and community leaders known as the Executive Board and supported by a small staff.

The leadership of both councils voted in January to approve the merger and to take the next step in the process.  Chartered Organization Representatives and members at large in each council will vote on the plan of merger.  West Central Florida Council’s vote will be on March 30.  Please read the following items related to the merger.
