2022 marked a year of growth for Napa, as the City focused on the Council’s priorities of climate change, workforce stability, housing and homelessness, the General Plan and economic development. Over the past year, the City developed a Climate and Sustainability Element for the General Plan, continued to fill critical staff positions, adopted the Napa 2040 General Plan and launched its Economic Development dashboard. In addition, the City expanded outdoor dining on public property, including sidewalks, parking areas, plazas and parks with the Parklets Program.
