Incorporation Update

In case you haven't been to the Restore Woodlake website lately, the Incorporation Committee wanted to share the results of the Incorporation portion of the recent survey.

  • We received a total of 278 responses
  • 245 or 91.1% believe incorporation would have a positive impact on the future direction of Woodlake.
  • 91% of the respondents believe the power of zoning is important to the future growth and stability of the community.
  • 90% believe that once incorporated, Woodlake would have better recognition with the Moore County Board of Commissioners.
  • When asked their feelings on the most significant changes in the community in the past 10 years, 160 respondents included the loss of the lake and/or dam.

Obviously a number of Woodlake residents feel pursuing incorporation is a worthwhile effort.  We are still collecting signatures to petition the state legislature.  The petitions are available in the POA Office or at the Guard shack as you enter Woodlake.  If you haven't done so already please take a few minutes and stop and sign the petition.

If you have any questions, Information can be found at:
Additionally, members of the Incorporation Committee and others are starting to take the petition door to door to contact those who have not signed;
If you are interested in supporting incorporation and would like a petition brought to you or you need more information, please email your name, address and phone number and the word “YES" to Someone will contact you;
If you are not interested in supporting incorporation, please email your name and address and the word "NO" to  We will not contact you.


This tab of the Restore Woodlake Website is dedicated to providing information related to how and why Woodlake should possibly incorporate.  Time is critical as many factors impact this decision - more so now than ever in the past.  Incoporation is a decision that each registered Moore County voter in Woodlake can express their support or non-support.
