At the February 17, 2009 meeting, the City Council, sitting as the Directors of the City of Napa Redevelopment Agency, approved a Joint Business Retention Strategy that will help to support local business over the coming months. With $50,000 allocated for this effort, the Redevelopment Agency will fund events, collateral materials and advertising. The Joint Business Retention Strategy includes teaming up with the Napa Chamber of Commerce to support the local “You’ve Got the Power” campaign. The first events planned include two types of entertainment in the popular new Veterans Park—a new summer series of six “Movies in the Park” on Saturday nights and the popular “Napa City Nights” music series on Friday nights. Schedules for these events will be posted on this site when available. Collateral materials, such as flyers, posters and brochures will supplement information pieces created by the Napa Downtown Association and specific businesses.
