The Woodbury City Council meets at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday.
The Woodbury City Council on Wednesday is set to discuss the coming changes at Throwbacks Grille and Bar, along with the Eagle Valley Golf Course liquor license and bonds for the Stonecrest senior housing facility. The council meets at 7:30 p.m. at City Hall. Woody’s Roadhouse, the new restaurant going in at the former Throwbacks location, is requesting a liquor license for the establishment. Late last month, David Harvey, the general manager, announced the change, which includes a major remodeling of the restaurant and a change in its concept. Woody’s will offer steak, burgers, ribs, skewers and rotisserie meats, and transition from a bar decor to a restaurant atmosphere, Harvey said, and a chef is being brought in from an Uptown …

For bars fall that below the 50 percent food-sales mark, the city will soon have public-safety criteria in place to guide staff on liquor-license decisions.
Woodbury is keeping its 50-50 policy regarding food and liquor sales at local establishments in place. But for those bars and restaurants that do generate more money from alcohol, Woodbury officials are looking to establish public-safety criteria to determine how to address their liquor licenses. “So that we aren’t penalizing businesses, like O’Malley’s, that really have been working with us,” said Mayor Mary Giuliani Stephens. The way it works now, the Woodbury City Council has a few options regarding liquor licenses at such businesses: continuation, probation, revocation, or elimination of late-night service, said City Administrator Clint Gridley. The new policy would allow establishments that fall below 50 percent food sales (but above …

With record highs expected this week, Eagle Valley Golf Course has opened earlier only once before; Prestwick set to open March 20.
“'Yippee!' and that kind of stuff.” That was the reaction from local golfers after Eagle Valley Golf Course put the word out that it would open this week, according to Dan Moris, head golf pro at the Woodbury course. The city-owned course was expected to open at noon on Wednesday, but the superintendent said the front nine looked good to go and would open at 1 p.m. on Tuesday. “This is early,” Moris said. He said the only time Eagle Valley Golf Course opened earlier was 2000, when March 7 marked the first time golfers could hit the links there. Across Woodbury on Tuesday, people were out bicycling, walking the city’s trail system or chipping away at the practice green at Eagle Valley. Meanwhile, at Prestwick Golf Club, the golf course and …

Meanwhile, a city task force is working to find new ways to market the municipal course.
Hitting the links at Eagle Valley Golf Course in Woodbury will be a little cheaper this year. After examining the prices at similar courses in the area, city staff during a Feb. 8 Woodbury City Council workshop suggested the city drop greens fees for the municipal course. (See the PDF with this story for specifics.) The rates won’t become official until an upcoming meeting, but because the city wants to get the fees out to the public—and into golf publications—council members informally agreed to them last week. While the course breaks even from an operations standpoint, it has had trouble keeping up with debt and capital needs, said Councilman Paul Rebholz. “That’s where the course has been falling behind,” he said. Rebholz—chair of a …

Council members on Wednesday will briefly discuss the master plan for Bielenberg Gardens, a mixed-use development planned southwest corner of Bailey Road and Radio Drive.
The Woodbury City Council has a fairly small agenda planned for Wednesday night, but it does include discussion of one very large project. The city is mulling plans for Bielenberg Gardens, a mixed-use “urban village” development at the southwest corner of Bailey Road and Radio Drive. Plans call for a retail center and medium- to high-density housing. Features of the proposed development include a green-space network, senior housing, water amenities, office space, a pharmacy, and locations for a fast-food establishment and grocer. The council is expected to briefly discuss the master plan document and zoning for the site. The city has received Metropolitan Council funding for a crossing from the urban village to the Bielenberg Sports Center…

A Woodbury church, two businesses, and a Woodbury family were honored May 19 as recipients of Woodbury’s fourth annual Environmental Excellence Awards.

The committee’s goal was to highlight businesses, organizations, and individuals that are making Woodbury a more sustainable community through innovative …

Are you looking for some fun and creative activities to do in the New Year? Check out these options from Woodbury Patch.
Looking for something to do in Woodbury over the New Year holidays? Patch has you covered. No. 5: An Afternoon of Sledding in Woodbury You might find Eagle Valley Golf Course's head pro, Dan Moris, out sledding on hole two with his family this week. "It has a big, long slope and it's right in the middle of the fairway so it makes for smooth sledding," Moris said. Hole 17 is also decent for sledding, he said, but it's a little harder to get to and the ride is not as smooth. Another great sledding hill is located right next to Footprints Academy. Older kids love its steep grade. It finishes on top of an ice pond, so parents need to ensure the pond is frozen solid before sending kids down the hill. Adults might want to supervise very …
