The City of Woodland is pleased to release the Public Review Draft of the General Plan Housing Element. 

The City of Woodland is in the process of a comprehensive update to its General Plan and as a result, the Housing Element is being amended to address the proposed land use changes and to provide an update on the City’s progress toward meeting housing goals. The City completed and adopted a Housing Element in 2013. The City submitted the Housing Element to the State Department of Housing and Community Development and received a letter dated August 8th, 2013 informing the City that the Housing Element met the statutory requirements of State housing element law.  The City Council adopted the Housing Element on October 15, 2013.  Since the adoption and certification of the 2013 Housing Element, there have been changes and progress toward the City’s housing goals. 

The updated Housing Element will be available for public review and comment through September 13, 2016. For more information on the Housing Element and the rest of the 2035 General Plan, please see the City’s General Plan Update website: Or, please visit the public counter of the City Community Development Department at 300 First Street, Woodland, CA 95695, if you wish to review a printed copy.
