Woods Estates of Riverdale
Woods Estates of Riverdale is a large housing addition being developed by Seth Woods and his company, Woods Development.
In 2017, the City Council, under the direction of Mayor Sonya Paddock, approved a TIF (tax increment financing) District to aid Mr. Woods in re-couping costs expended to put in some of the infrastructure (i.e. roads, sewers, electrical lines) that would be turned over to the City once the project was complete. Once the TIF was approved and the Development Agreement with Mr. Woods finalized, the project was underway, with clearing operations slated to begin in early 2018.
The current mayor has requested a regular progress report be made to the City Council at each meeting. In some cases, those reports are given in person by Mr. Woods or a representative from the development team. In most cases, however, those updates are relayed to the City Council through emails and phone conversations held between Mr. Woods and various parties from the City (sometimes the Mayor, sometimes the City Administrator, sometimes others).
We will document as much of the public correspondence and notes pertaining to this project as possible. If there is additional information you think should be added to this public record, please let us know and we’ll endeavor to add it to the website.
Some aspects of this project are covered in other City documents including Planning & Zoning Commission Meeting Minutes and in Reports to the City Council by the City Engineer (MSA). It is recommended you look in those areas for additional information if the documents and links provided in this project area do not provide the required information.
If you can’t find a specific piece of information on this website, you can always make a request for document production from the City. We will respond to your request within three business days with a projected cost and delivery date for the production of requested materials.
