In order to determine if a use complies with City Codes, twelve (12) copies of the site plan need to be submitted. Please refer to the Site Plan Checklist found on the City of Woodland Community Development web page for more information regarding the information needed for submittal. And for fee information, please refer to the Comprehensive Fee Schedule (reference Section B: Engineering Plan Checking and Inspection).
Lot Line Adjustments and Lot Splits
Lot lines are the lines bounding a lot or a parcel. Therefore, the lot line adjustment process allows a property owner to change the shape or size of a lot by simply repositioning the existing lot lines without the need for a more complicated subdivision application. For information regarding lot line adjustments, please refer to the that is found on the City of Woodland Community Development Department web page. For information regarding fee scheduling for lot line adjustments, please refer to the City of Woodland (reference Planning Fees).
