About the WB E-News

350th anniversary

As we prepare for the annual “State-of-the-Township” address, the Township Administration and the Municipal Council will continue the business of Woodbridge - but it’s the community spirit of our "Ten Towns" that stand as the "Heart-and-Soul" of our Township.  Neighbor helping neighbor and volunteers who work behind the scenes to keep the Woodbridge "Quality-of-Life" the best in the state. I am encouraged as we look toward 2018. The economic climate continues to improve, with new retail, commercial and corporate businesses slated to locate or expand in Woodbridge in the coming year - businesses that will serve to offer additional employment opportunities to Township residents. 

We will continue to concentrate on "Quality-of-Life" concerns and we will be at work to improve and expand municipal services. And, just around the corner is another year of spectacular Township events! We're already putting together an exciting line-up for the Mayor's Summer Concert series:  Music-On-Main Street... Woodbridge Wednesday... Local Band Thursday... Friday Jazz... and Country Sunday concerts.  Tooling Around the Township “Builds & Repairs” on April 28.  Plan to shop the Summer Farmers Market.  Don’t forget about the Barron Arts Center concerts, exhibits and the annual BarronFest Art Festival.  Taste of Woodbridge arrives in October... and there is much, much more to come.
