Transparency in Government

The City of Woodland strives to conduct the public's business in a manner that is accessible and transparent to all its citizens. We believe that our participatory democracy is best served by ensuring that the public has an understanding of its government's decision-making process and how best to participate. In addition, the public should have easy-access to public information, including meeting agendas and minutes, financial and budget information, and documents and reports.

Land Acknowledgement

The City of Woodland acknowledges the land on which we live and work. For thousands of years, this land has been the home of Patwin people. Today, there are three federally recognized Patwin tribes: Cachil DeHe Band of Wintun Indians of the Colusa Indian Community, Kletsel Dehe Wintun Nation, and Yocha Dehe Wintun Nation.

The Patwin people have remained committed to the stewardship of this land over many centuries. It has been cherished and protected, as elders have instructed the young through generations. We are honored and grateful to be here today on their traditional lands.
