Business Journal: Odors May Impact Woodland Project
A proposed Woodland annexation could add retail, restaurants and offices to the town. The project is located near a waste water treatment plant. As Shana Lynch from the Business Journal reports, odors from the plant could pose a problem.

The city of Woodland is considering annexing 153 acres owned by Paul Petrovich for an auto mall and other retail. The proposal calls for a 32-acre auto mall along with stores, restaurants, up to three hotels and office space. The city gave the go-ahead to begin traffic and odor studies. If those issues can be overcome, the developer can proceed with full environmental studies. The proposed annexation could take up to two years to jump through all its hoops, including an environmental impact report and approval from the planning commission and City Council. And the development has some obstacles to overcome, including determining whether it is compatible with a wastewater treatment plant next door.
