Take the City’s Housing and Community Development Resident Survey

September 23, 2009

We are surveying residents to identify the greatest needs in Woodland that warrant the use of public funds. Please help us by completing the brief survey attached.  To take the resident survey online click here.  La versión en español de esta encuesta para residentes estará disponible entre unos días.  Para completar la encuesta, por favor oprime aquí

If you would like to fill out a paper survey they are available at the Community Development Department, 520 Court Street between 8am and 11am Monday through Friday; the Woodland Public Library (250 First Street); the Woodland Community and Senior Center (2001 East Street); or a printed version is available on the City of Woodland website, CDBG homepage, http://www.cityofwoodland.org/gov/depts/cd/redev/community_development_block_grant_(cdbg)/default.asp.

As a recipient of Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) requires the City of Woodland to adopt a new Five-Year Consolidated Plan, which identifies a jurisdiction’s overall housing and community development needs and provides a strategy to address those needs.  This plan is both a five-year strategic planning document and it establishes a short-term investment plan that outlines the intended use of CDBG funds. 

The Consolidated Plan must be submitted to HUD by May 2010, but the development of the plan is a lengthy process and it requires a lot of input from Woodland residents and local service providers.  In the coming months, the City will be gathering data, resident surveys, service provider surveys, and holding public meetings to eventually develop the 2010-2014 Consolidated Plan.  Please help the City of Woodland develop the 2010 -2014 Consolidated Plan by lending your input. 

Upcoming public meeting will be announced through the Enewsletter, Daily Democrat, and email list serves.  If you would like to be alerted by email of future public meetings please email Devon Horne, Redevelopment/Housing Analyst, at devon.horne@cityofwoodland.org.

If you have any questions or comments please contact Devon Horne at (530) 661-5837 or devon.horne@cityofwoodland.org

Thank you for your involvement with this exciting community process.
