The Napa City Council held a special meeting on Thursday December 11, 2008 to provide public information and additional perspective on the proposed high-density development at the former site of Napa Pipe. Released at the meeting was a report entitled Summary of Due Diligence Findings for Joint City/County Housing Solution.

The report was developed as to support the City's offer to absorb 70% of the County’s housing allocations for the next 21 years in return for annexation of the former Napa Pipe site into the City. This step would allow for unified, integrated planning throughout the City and avoid the problems that come with developing more than 3,000 homes in a single location. The joint housing solution has not been accepted by the County of Napa at this time.
