Governance Forums
The Woodlands Township is in the process of studying future governance options for The Woodlands. In March 2012, two Governance Forums were held to discuss results of a financial and governance analysis and to gather feedback on the future governance of The Woodlands. Several hundred residents attended these events. For the month of April 2012, a 15-minute video presentation was available for viewing online, accompanied by a feedback tool to allow all interested community members to participate and provide formal input in this process.

The formal feedback process ended on April 30, 2012. A summary report of the feedback received during the current governance process is anticipated for presentation to The Woodlands Township Board of Directors in June, 2012.

Videos of the March Governance Forums, including the presentation by the governance consultants and answers to community questions, are available below. The presentation highlights a brief history of the Governance Process to date and the current Governance Structure and Service Providers. It also provides an overview of the incorporation scenario and results of the incorporation Financial Analysis.
