Much of Woodbury's extraordinary success as a community comes from more than four decades of long-range, planned growth. The city's residents, close to 80,000, continue to rank the quality of life and sense of community in Woodbury as among the highest in the metro area. It's no surprise that Woodbury continues to be ranked nationally as one of the best places to live.
New residents are attracted to Woodbury's well-planned neighborhoods, parks and trails, schools and overall quality of life, and the continued growth in new housing starts certainly supports that claim.
The City has long supported a variety of housing types to accommodate people of all ages, income levels and family status. The number of new single family and attached units has remained relatively steady, and Woodbury continues to be an attractive market for new apartment projects. Over the last ten years, the split between single family and attached housing units (townhomes and apartments) has been equally split between single family and multi-family housing.
