The "planning area" is the land within Woodlake's sphere of influence (SOI) line, containing 3,707 acres; urban development boundary (UDB) line, containing 2,552 acres, and its city limits, containing approx. 1,689 acres.
In order to determine the amount of land needed for urban development in Woodlake over the next 20 years, 2008 to 2028, population projections and land use demand projections were prepared. Two population projections (low and high) were used in the General Plan. These population figures are projections from the base year of 2007, provided by the U.S. Census Bureau. The Plan's "low" population projection is based on Woodlake's growth rate from 1990 to 2000 (1.59 percent) and its "high" population projection is based on its growth rate from 1980 to 2000 (2.15 percent). Both of these growth rates are based on the U.S. Census Bureau figures.
