Thriving Business Community

Valley Creek Development

Woodbury's strategic location along I-494, I-694 and I-94, and its commitment to quality development and excellence in providing city services have positioned it for sustained success and contributed to a robust and thriving business climate.

The City of Woodbury has also enjoyed strong and consistent leadership that sincerely cares about the health of the business community and appreciates their investment in the community. The city's business outreach and retention program dates back to the 1980s, helping to ensure that our existing businesses are able to stay, grow and thrive here in Woodbury.

The following annual events demonstrate the city's ongoing commitment to business.

Business Celebration

Each year, the City of Woodbury partners with the Woodbury Area Chamber of Commerce to acknowledge businesses that made substantial real estate investments or improvements in Woodbury in the past year. The event, known as the Woodbury Business Celebration, is held at Woodbury’s Central Park.

Mayor's Business Update

One sign of the strength of Woodbury's business community is the growth of the Woodbury Area Chamber of Commerce. The City of Woodbury and the Chamber have a unique and collaborative relationship, with the city having representation on the Chamber's board of directors. The Mayor delivers an update once a year at the November Chamber networking luncheon. This event offers a great recap of the past year's accomplishments as well as a forecast for the coming year.
