6th Cycle Planning Period – 2021 - 2029

The Housing Element is one of the seven mandated elements of the City of Woodland General Plan. It sets forth the City's strategy to preserve and enhance the community's residential character, expand housing opportunities for all economic segments, and provide guidance and direction for local government decision-making in all matters related to housing.

The City of Woodland, along with all other California cities and counties, is required to adequately plan to meet the housing needs of everyone in our community. The Sacramento region is currently in the process of transitioning from the 5th Cycle planning period, to the 6th cycle planning period, which will cover an eight-year span from 2021-2029. The City is currently updating the Housing Element for this next eight-year span. (The City of Woodland is part of the Sacramento Area Council of Governments - SACOG)

The foundation of the Housing Element is the Adopted RHNA Methodology, in which the State estimates each region's housing needs for all income groups for the upcoming eight years. The City of Woodland’s RHNA target for the 2021-2029 planning period is 3,087 new residential units. 

More information on required content for Housing Elements can be found in the Building Blocks guide published from the California Department of Housing and Community Development.
