About Grosse Pointe Woods
The City of Grosse Pointe Woods was originally incorporated in 1927 and was known as the Village of Lochmoor. In 1939, the Village of Lochmoor became the Village of Grosse Pointe Woods and on December 11, 1950, was incorporated as the City of Grosse Pointe Woods, a Home Rule City. The city covers an area of 3.28 square miles. The city operates under a Council-Manager form of government established by the City Charter, adopted by voters in 1950. This efficient format divides government into policy-making and administrative functions and has an organizational structure similar to a business. The residents of the city are the highest government authority. They delegate this authority to representatives they elect every four years. Similar to a Board of Directors of a corporation, the City Council composed of the mayor and six council members, is responsible for determining policies and adopting ordinances needed to maintain the health, safety and welfare of the citizens.
