Housing Element

The Housing Element is a section of the General Plan that is required by State law. The Housing Element addresses a local government's existing and projected housing needs of all economic segments of the community. The element must 1) identify these housing needs; 2) state the community's goals and objectives with regard to housing production, rehabilitation, and conservation to meet those needs; and 3) define the polices and programs that the community will implement to achieve the stated goals and objectives.


The City of Woodland City Council adopted an update of the City's Housing Element on March 24, 2009. The individual sections of the City's Housing Element Update are viewable in PDF format in the following documents.
