VINITA PARK (KMOV.com) -

Two North County municipalities are now one thanks to a historic 2016 vote.

Residents of Vinita Terrace and Vinita Park voted last November to approve a merger.

Now, both cities will fall under the name, Vinita Park. 

Leaders and residents gathered at the Vinita Terrace Village Hall Wednesday morning to commemorate the merger.

The hall will also become the new detective bureau for the North County Police Cooperative. 

The department served both cities before the merger and will continue to do so. 

Vinita Terrace, which has about 300 residents,will now become the fourth ward of Vinita Park making for more than 2,000 residents in Vinita Park.

The residents of the new ward will also see an increase in their property taxes.

It will match the rate of Vinita Park's, but they will now be provided with street sweeping, trash service, among others.
