Welcome to the City of Woodland Community Development Department webpage! The Community Development Department blends planning, building, and code enforcement services into one cohesive unit to help property owners, developers, and other citizens move through the development process. We are here to provide excellent customer service, pre-application conferences, code implementation and interpretation, and complete development review.

Monthly Department Reports

The Planning Division consists of two main functions:

  • Long Range Planning: This includes the development of land use regulations (zoning, subdivisions, critical areas, etc.) and updates to the Comprehensive Plan.

  • Current Planning: Processing and review of land use applications for projects such as Site Plan Review, land divisions, and the State Environmental Policy Act (SEPA) Checklist.

The Building Division offers the following services:

  • Construction permit review

  • State and local code administration

  • Inspections

The mission of the Community Development Department is to support the health, safety, and welfare of Woodland’s citizens by the execution of development and building regulations which in turn enhances economic development and livability. We pledge to remain a competent source of information, analysis and assistance that provides caring, accurate, and knowledgeable support to all citizens, businesses, and agencies visiting or residing in the Woodland community.

We encourage citizens to participate in our community development efforts! Please check out our webpage for the most up-to-date code changes and land use/building related information. If you don’t find it here, please contact us!
