John G. Woods was village president (mayor) in Arlington Heights during the 1960s and 1970s, serving two terms as village president from 1961 to 1969 and returned again in 1972, when he was appointed interim president.
John G. Woods, a one-time vice president and general counsel for Universal Oil Products in Des Plaines, was credited with decisions in long-range plans that favored successful expansion of Arlington Heights, as the population grew to more than double its size. Also during his tenure in the 1960s, the assessed valuation of Arlington Heights also doubled from $100,000 to $200 million. Woods’ leadership was involved in annexing about 4,000 acres, which doubled the size of the Village of Arlington Heights. In the early 1960s, the Village of Arlington Heights was barely developed north of Euclid Avenue. By 1970, the Village of Arlington Heights was fully-developed between Euclid Avenue and Palatine Road, and rapidly developing north of Palatine Road toward Dundee Road.
