While some might lambast this as sprawl and agricultural destruction (and it is), the truth is that these parts of Woodbury should have developed decades ago to prevent even more distant suburbs (think Otsego, Elk River, Hugo, Forest Lake, etc) from developing. As a region, we made a huge mistake in allowing every single suburb to annex their full 36 sq. mi. townships and then slowly develop. A better strategy would have been orderly development outward from the core, rather than the leapfrog type boondoggle we've built. The infrastructure bills for this mess we've built will not be cheap...

As usual, my hometown manages to disappoint. Apparently Woodbury hasn't heard of New Urbanism, but instead is diverting to its usual playbook of more and more greenfield development. The direction Woodbury is going in is doing a real disservice to the City and particularly to its future generations.
