THE WOODLANDS, TEXAS (March 26, 2020) – The Woodlands Township Board of Directors held its first ever public meeting via videoconference at 6 p.m. Wednesday, March 25, 2020.
The Directors primarily discussed the Township’s response to COVID-19 and unanimously voted to defer the planning process of The Woodlands future governance.
“I am and the Board are acutely aware the COVID-19 crisis is one of the many variables that alters timing for governance transition options,” said Township Chairman Gordy Bunch. “Incorporation has never been on a ballot and there has not been any commitment to add it to this year’s ballot either.”
“The Township has completed the studies and financial analysis associated with Incorporation planning. These studies have resulted in a comprehensive operating and financial model that will serve The Woodlands well when incorporation is considered by the community,” Chairman Bunch said.
“Over the past two and a half years, the Board has spent a great deal of time studying Incorporation; however, it is time for the Board to refocus its energy on the crisis at hand,” he added. “We all have a common enemy with the COVID-19 virus and all efforts and attention should be spent rallying the community towards those efforts.”
The Board voted to have the Novak Consulting Group ensure The Woodlands Township has a finished plan that can endure as a living executable plan, that can be easily updated annually by future boards.
Regarding COVID-19, the Board announced they will be meeting weekly under special emergency guidelines from the State of Texas and all these meetings will be by videoconference. The Board made several appointments regarding the Township’s COVID-19 response:
