  • Ironman Traffic Impact - April 28th

    traffic jam
    Local traffic may be impacted on April 28th due to the annual Ironman Triathlon.  Detailed race route information can be found at 

    http://www.ironman.com/~/media/d0d795592fac4916a160fd91b02fde7b/2018%20im%20texas%20traffic%20impact%20%20web.pdf.

    Changes include:

    • Due to early voting for the Montgomery County elections, the South County Community Building at 2235 Lake Robbins Dr, next to Town Green Park, will be a polling location.  Access to the building will remain open as the race route has been altered to provide entry and exit to the parking lot.  
    • The turnaround location on the bike course on Woodlands Parkway has been moved east to the intersection of Woodlands Parkway and Gosling, instead of the Woodlands Parkway and Cochran’s Crossing/John Cooper School Dr. intersection where it was last year.   This change opens the Woodlands Parkway/ Gosling intersection to through traffic.
    • The bike course south bound on Grogan’s Mill, leaving the Woodlands in the morning,  has been moved to the inside lane instead of the outside lane to provide residents of the N. MIllbend/Crossvine area and visitors/employees of the Woodlands Resort and Conference Center and golf course the ability to turn right (south) onto  Grogan’s Mill without delay. Vehicles can then travel to S. MIllbend to turn right and detour to destinations north, east or west.    

     

  • Incorporation Planning

    governmentIn 2017, the Township solicited proposals from consulting firms, university consortiums or others having experience or qualifications in governance planning, research, government finance, public input and community education to facilitate an Incorporation Planning Study on behalf of the Board of Directors.
     
    The study is anticipated to begin in early 2018. Planning sessions for Board discussion on these important matters are scheduled to be held throughout the year at 4 p.m. prior to each of the regular meeting board meeting typically held at 6 p.m. on the third Thursday, and on the fourth Wednesday, of the month.
     
    Additional information is available on the Township’s website at www.thewoodlandstownship-tx.gov/governance.

What is a MUD and why you should care?

MUDs (Municipal Utility Districts) provide water, sewer, and drainage services to local residents, which are paid for through service fees (your water/sewer bill) and property taxes imposed by your local MUD.  The MUDs are seperate government entities and operate independently from the Woodlands Township and local county government.  Woodlands residents actually receive a separate property tax bill from their local MUD in addition to the consolidated tax bill issued by the county tax office.  There are 12 different MUD districts within The Woodlands and each one independently sets their own tax rate and policies, and each one is governed by a board of directors elected by residents within that MUD district.  The total tax rate imposed on property thus varies by location, depending upon which MUD serves that location.
 
In Panther Creek, MUD #1 services the properties north of Woodlands Parkway (with the exception of Herald Oaks and Windward Cove), while the latter neighborhoods and properties south of Woodlands Parkway are part of MUD #07.
