 Woodland needs your help updating the comprehensive plan.   

The town's comprehensive plan takes stock of where the town is and then sets goals for where the town's residents want it to be in the future.  The last time our plan was updated was over 25 years ago and a lot has changed.  The Woodland Planning Board is forming a Comprehensive Planning Committee and looking for citizens to help by serving on the board or supporting the update effort in other ways. 

The comprehensive plan update process is a chance for our community to get together and  talk about our town.   What do we like about Woodland?  What might we like to change?  Where do we want to be in the future?  We will talk about all of these things and may remove, revise, or create new goals as part of the updated plan.
Please contact the town if interested.

History of Woodland

The Town of Woodland, formerly known as Township No. 14 Range 3, was surveyed for settlement by Lore Alford of Old Town in 1859, and was divided into lots of 160 acres each. The townhip is bounded by New Sweden on the north, by Caribou on the east, Wasburn on the south, and Perham on the west. At the time when the first clearing was made in Woodland, both Perham and New Sweden were wilderness townships and had not been lotted for settlement. The low price at which the state offered these new lands to actual settlers attracted the attention of the men who wished to make homes for themselves and families, and they were not long in the market before the sturdy blows of the pioneer's axe were resounding through the forest and clearings were commenced in different portions of the town.

Woodland was incorporated as a town on March 5, 1880, the name being descriptive of a land abounding in wood. The naming of Woodland from No. 14 township was said to have been by Mrs. J.G. Thayer and her daughter, Percees, at a regular town meeting. The town was first surveyed on November 28, 1877, and at the time, found to include 34,102 square miles.
