Woodville Foundation sets reorganization meeting for Monday August 6 at 6 pm

Back To Front Page


The “Voice of Liberty Township” is in the process of a reorganization. Since its inception in 2012, the Woodville Foundation has led the charge for protecting farms and farmland, the environment and wildlife, and property values within the township.

Current leaders of the organization recently decided the organization needs new, younger leadership from within and decided to conduct a reorganization.

The Woodville Foundation was created with several goals, which have not changed. Those goals are to protect the history and culture of the township; to protect property values of the township, including family farms and homes and subdivisions; to convince county officials that though it is unincorporated, all county townships should be treated the same way the county deals with municipalities within the county.

When the Porter County hospital was sold and a private one built in the central part of the county, the Woodville Foundation was instrumental in getting the U.S. 6 Corridor Ordinance enacted. This document lays out a coordinated path to planned development and growth along Rt. 6, with purpose and forethought. Along the way the foundation has also supported individuals and subdivisions with being heard when other areas of the township were threatened by changes in zoning which were not conducive to their primary goals. Since the Woodville Foundation began Liberty Township population has grown to over 7,000 residents and voters.

Meeting Monday at 6 p.m.

The reorganization meeting will be held at Sunset Hill Farm County Park on Monday evening, August 6, from 6 to 9 p.m. Residents of township subdivisions and property owners along county roads within the township are welcome. Residents are urged to consider taking an active role in leadership within the organization. Please come with a short resume of abilities conducive to any position of interest and concerns or ideas that could be addressed in the future. Sunset Hill Farm Park is at 775 N. Meridian Road, in Liberty Township.

The positions that must be filled are all officer spots, plus newsletter editor and website coordinator, as well as three to five individuals for the board of directors.

If residents are unable to attend, the committee suggests finding someone who is going to attend to relate concerns and ideas. The recent past officers want residents to know they are willing to continue in the Foundation as consultants.

Questions can be directed to the current Newsletter Editor at 219-252-7105.
