In November 2006, School District 833 was selected as the new home for the school district's new high schools, which would later be called East First High School.

The centre of Woodbury is along Afton Road, and there is a path that was once part of the original St Paul River Trail. This path has developed into a popular hiking and cycling trail in the area, which is now largely displaced by new buildings along the motorway.
With the replacement of the railways by the motorway, the commercial strip along the motorway 12 has grown, which has now been largely removed by the construction of the motorway. The city government could not adequately support this new development, and it became clear that Woodbury needed a government village with additional privileges. A new high-rise residential building will be built on the site of the former railway tracks over the next year.
