The future Cotati site for a low-income, five-residential home subdivision to be built by Habitat for Humanity of Sonoma County has been decided. The homes will be built on undeveloped land located immediately next to Highway 101 at the end of Woodland Hills Drive.

Habitat for Humanity plans to break ground at the site by the end of summer.

“There is a long process of providing a home for a family in need including selecting families, permitting, coordinating hundreds of volunteers, and constructing the homes,” Development Director Wayne Mitchell said.

The tentative map for the subdivision, known as Woodland Hills, has been approved and the engineering drawings have been finalized and submitted to the city for approval, according to Mitchell.

The average home size will be 1,225 sq. ft., and the subdivision will comprise of a trio of three-bedroom, one two-bedroom, and one single-bedroom homes.

“I do not yet have an exact date for when we will break ground. It can happen as soon as we get final design approval from the City of Cotati,” Mitchell said.

During the past year, Habitat for Humanity completed five homes in Sonoma County.

Habitat for Humanity will be building these homes over the next 2 years. Our construction is based on "many hands make light work". We will be recruiting volunteers to work at our jobsite.
