North side happening:
Saturday saw the largest north area project come on line with the opening of The Shops At Northwood, which is anchored by a Super Target department store. This is another sign of Woodstock’s growth and a welcome addition to the new residents in that area of town.
Two large apartment communities, Quail Run(1), (2), (3), (4) and The Regency, have been built along with new single family homes. Smaller complexes (1), (2) are popping up in various locations as well, filling in some of the empty spots between larger developments. The city’s decision to build a highway network before the growth took place is paying dividends by making Woodstock an easy city to navigate.
Bus ridership has seen a steady increase every year as well with new routes planned. One factor in the popularity of the system is the free Wi-Fi in all buses. Business people and students can work during the ride to work and school making the ride go by faster and more productive.
While all this is going on along the city’s outskirts, Woodstock’scentral business district has been able to attract a number of large tenants, changing the city’s skyline. More projects are in the works for downtown, including additional shopping and recreation.
