Woodbury to Consider Opening Up Phase 2 for More Development
An update on the Gateway Corridor is also on Wednesday night’s Woodbury City Council agenda.
In January, the city decided to defer the opening of the Phase 2 area of the Woodbury for development.
With infrastructure improvements in the works and an apparently rebounding housing market, Woodbury will again discuss its options for allowing further housing in Phase 2.
Spread across 2,150 acres, the area has enough land to accommodate about 600 units a year for a decade, according to a memo for the Woodbury City Council, which will discuss the matter Wednesday night.
Specifically, city staff believes the Fields of Woodbury area (sub-phase 2A) is ready for development, based on declining lot inventory in the city and an uptick in the housing market.
There would still be infrastructure work to finalize—a trunk sewer line and extending Pioneer Drive to Dale Road—and zoning revisions to iron out, but developers have told the city they are interested in the area.
If the council informally agrees on opening up the area for development during the workshop, it would come before the council during a regular meeting.
Wednesday’s workshop meeting will also include an update from the Gateway Corridor Commission.
The group has been tasked with coming up with new transit alternatives along Interstate 94.

Also on the docket Wednesday is an update of the Bielenberg Sports Center, where the city is looking to replace the dome with a permanent field house.
The council meets at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 19, at City Hall.
