Want to make a difference in your community? Do you have expertise you could share? The City Clerk is accepting applications from Napa Residents for a total of three openings; three to serve on the Planning Commission. Applications are available online for submission at www.cityofnapa.org - choose Boards, Commissions & Committees from the City Clerk’s page. Please submit application by 5:00 p.m. Friday, September 20, 2019.
The Planning Commission is advisory to the City Council on matters related to land use and planning, particularly related to amendments to the City's General Plan policies and Zoning Ordinance. The Planning Commission is the decision-making body for specified land use actions, including conditional use permits and design review permits. One of the three appointments shall fill the requirement of “design professional”. Applicants must be City of Napa residents and registered voters. The Planning Commission meets regularly on the first and third Thursday of each month at 5:30 p.m. in the Council Chambers, located at City Hall, 955 School Street.
The City of Napa recruits throughout the year for interested residents to serve on a variety of boards and commissions that examine issues of community concern. Volunteers appointed to serve on a board or commission help City Council and city departments examine issues and, in turn, shape the future of Napa. Board and Commission members are appointed by the City Council and terms vary but are typically either two or three years. Most board members must be city residents and registered voters.
