The community incorporated around 1987 and established a mayor-council form of city government. In 1990 the population was 548. That figure had increased to 877 by 2000. Cottonwood Shores has its own police department and volunteer fire department, as well as a community theater. Cottonwood Community Church serves an interdenominational congregation."
