Members of several Napa County law enforcement agencies plan a joint fundraiser for the Special Olympics of Northern California by holding a “Tip-A-Cop” event at the Napa Black Bear Diner later this week. This is part of the fundraising efforts by local law enforcement officers in preparation for the annual law enforcement torch run, and the Special Olympics of Northern California, which will be at the end of June, at UC Davis University.
Uniformed officers will team with regular wait staff to wait on tables. In addition to the tips customers leave their respective servers, a donation may be made to the Special Olympics; 100% of all “Tip-A-Cop” donations will go to help fund the needs of the Special Olympics. The event will take place on Friday, June 3, 2016, from 7:00 am to 11:00 am the Black Bear Diner located at 303 Soscol Avenue, in the City of Napa.
Special Olympics Northern California is a free year-round sports training and competition program for children and adults with intellectual disabilities. More than 15,700 athletes compete in 154 competitions throughout the region in 12 sports. This requires the extraordinary support and time of 14,370 volunteers and volunteer coaches. Financial support comes almost exclusively from individuals, organizations, corporations, and foundations.

On May 16th, City of Napa Community Development Department issued a Request for Proposals for design and consulting services to prepare a Master Plan and required environmental documentation for the CineDome Focus Area. Proposals are due by 5 pm on Friday, June 17th.
As defined in the Downtown Specific Plan and illustrated on the last page of the attached RFP, the Focus Area includes properties owned by the City, SyWest (former CineDome site) and Napa Sanitation District (former pump station and skate park site). The Master Plan will result in a mixed-use development plan that ensures viable land uses; establishes design guidelines for those uses; ensures appropriate massing and scale; enhances open space and linkages for pedestrians and bicyclists; creates activity alongside the Oxbow Commons; establishes a parking solution that addresses needs of existing and future development; and respects nearby neighborhoods.
Staff will work with the SyWest team to evaluate proposals, interview firms and prepare a recommendation for Council consideration this summer, and will kick off the planning shortly after award of contract. The planning effort is anticipated to take approximately one year, and will include stakeholder outreach and community outreach.
