THE WOODLANDS, TEXAS (May 26, 2022) – At its regular meeting on Wednesday, May 25, 2022, The Woodlands Township Board of Directors honored two school groups with proclamations, discussed the upcoming residential survey and received reports regarding multiple Township projects in addition to other business.

The Board recognized The John Cooper School which has earned several gold medals and sports accolades recently. The Dragon Boys Tennis Team made history with the school’s first-ever Southwest Preparatory Conference Championship win. The Dragon Boys 4x800 Meter Relay Team earned a gold medal with individual gold medals earned for boys and girls pole vault. Golfer Tillie Claggett broke the record for the lowest two-day score in Southwest Preparatory Conference history.

The Board also honored The Woodlands Christian Academy for their recent triumph in the TAPPS 5A Boys State Golf Championship. The team secured their victory by a margin of 65 strokes, culminating a season of back-to-back State Championships and recently being named the #1 high school golf team in the United States by the National High School Golf Association. Multiple school records were broken this season and four players finished All-State as top 10 Finishers. Congratulations to the Warriors golf team, led by Coach Jonathan McNeese: Ethan Bridges, Aaron Pounds, Jack Usner, Jake Maggert, Sam McClure, Keller Davis, Alex Malanga and Duke Heise. View the proclamation.

The Board received an update regarding the 2022 Residential Survey for The Woodlands Township. Township staff recommended Great Lakes Marketing Research, which offers multiple response methods such as by paper, online or via phone call with a live operator. GLM will randomly choose households to receive a mailed paper survey and will gain a statistically acceptable sample size for research. The Board approved the motion to retain Great Lakes Marketing Research for the 2022 Residential Survey. The survey will not contain any questions related to bank accounts or credit cards.

On the regular agenda, the Board heard a presentation about the success of the 2022 Woodlands Waterway Arts Festival. The theme of the festival was Celebrating Abundance; the event set new records with an attendance of 23,000, the best ticket sales on record with 14,069 tickets sold, and an overall estimated economic impact to The Woodlands of $6 million. The 2023 festival is set for April 14 – 16, 2023. View the report.

The Board also heard from the Township Finance Department regarding the financial report. The report noted multiple positive variances in sales and property tax collection and lower expenditures by the Township than forecast. Strong retail and hotel performance also contributed to the overall positive outlook. View the report.

The Board also heard a proposal regarding the replacement of vehicles leased through the Township's Fleet Management Services contract. The lease for eight Township work trucks will expire in 2023 and the internal study determined that purchasing new vehicles versus leasing would result in an overall savings of $62,000. The Board approved a motion to purchase new vehicles rather than entering into another lease agreement. 

The Board heard a first quarter report from Visit The Woodlands (Convention & Visitors Bureau). View the report.

The Board also received reports from several of the village associations. 

On the consent agenda, the Board approved Resolution No. 008-22 Establishing Authorization Limits for Commitments and Agreements, Checks and Disbursements, and other Documents and Materials by the Board of Directors, Board Officers, President/Chief Executive Officer, and Other Designated Staff Positions of The Woodlands Township.
