The City’s General Plan helps to guide decision-making by residents, property owners, business interests, and elected and appointed officials about public and private land use and development that shape Napa’s physical environment. Envision Napa 2020, the City’s current General Plan, was adopted in 1998.

To assist with the General Plan Update, the City is establishing an advisory committee comprised of 10 to 15 members from the general public. You can learn more about the scope of the Committee and fill out the online application at Applications are due by 4:00 PM on Friday, September 7, 2018.
