Downtown Streets Conversion Project PDF Print Email

Updated Wednesday, April 2, 2014

The City of Napa's Downtown Street Conversion Project began in mid February 2014 and is now underway. The end result will convert several downtown streets from their current one-way traffic configuration to two-way traffic. The conversion plan developed from the Downtown Specific Plan process, as a means to increase the economic vitality of Downtown Napa. 


WHEN: February-March 2014
WHERE: First and Second Streets from Main Street to Jefferson Street

The first phase of the project began in February 18 with “potholing” to locate underground utilities, followed by electrical work – some of which required digging narrow trenches in the street for conduit. The next step is work on traffic signals. At three intersections, traffic signals have been removed. In six others, new signals will be installed or existing signals will be modified.

WHEN: April-May 2014
WHERE: First and Second Streets from Main Street to School Street

The second phase of the work involves replacement of sidewalks, street trees, benches and other fixtures along First Street – a remodeling of the “streetscape.” Phase two of the work is scheduled to be complete by early to mid June, 2014. When all underground work is complete, repaving of the improved areas of both First and Second Streets will follow.

Phase 1 will cause some noise and minor impacts to parking and traffic.
Phase 2 will have a larger impact, as work in the area from the curb to the storefronts will cause short periods when access will be difficult. At all times, work will be scheduled to take place at dates and times with the least disruption to businesses.

An email distribution list has been created to provide regular updates to impacted property owners and businesses. To be added to this list, email me at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

Q: How many accounts should each family have?
A: We recommend that each family establish a primary account with login credentials. Create the account in the name of a head of household and then add all family member names underneath the head of household after it has been established (see next question).
Q: How do I add family members to my account?
A: You may add family members in the three following locations:
1) You may add a family member while submitting your head of household account information, by clicking on the Submit and Add Family Member link.

A: When you are prompted to sign in, check the Forgot your Password box and click Continue. You will be requested to provide the email address you used to create your account. After providing your email address, you will be requested to verify your identity by providing your first and last name as well as your date of birth.

2) Select the Activity that you would like to enroll into. Clicking the underlined name will show you a detailed Activity description.

Q: I am getting a error statement stating that I am already enrolled, but I know that I am not; why is this happening?
A: This error message will show up if you have added an activity to your cart on a different computer, for example your phone, but you have not completed registration or have not logged out of your account.  For example, if you log into your account on your phone and add an activity to your cart, but do not complete the registration process and do not log out of your account, the system still considers you "in process" of registering on your phone and is holding that spot for you.  Therefore, the computer will indicate that you are currently enrolled so that you do not enroll in the activity twice.  You will need to logout on your phone and then you will be able to complete the registration on another computer. 
Q: How can I pay for the registration using a credit card that is not in my name (i.e. Husband's/Wife's/Parent's/Grandparent's)?
A:  You may complete the registration and pay the registration fees with a card that is not in you name using the following guidelines:
1) You must have permission from the card holder to use the credit card for payment.
2) The person who is the hold of the credit card must have a profile in your family.   To see how to add additional profiles to your family see question 3 above about adding family members to your account.
3) Please be sure that the proper address and information is added for the card holder/family member, so that it matches the billing information associated with the credit card.
4) Once the family member has a profile you may use the credit card to pay the registation fee.
Q: What will happen if I try to register for an Activity that is full?
A: Your name will be placed on a waiting list. You will be contacted in the event that a space opens for that Activity or additional Activities are added. If we are unable to contact you, your space will be given to the next customer on the waiting list.
If you do not want to be placed on the waiting list, click the Remove button that appears on the Shopping Cart screen.
*Please Note: Placement on a waiting list does not guarantee a spot in the Activity. It is recommended for guaranteed participation, please choose another Activity with registration space.
Q: How can I view a schedule of my family's upcoming scheduled Activities?
A: The My Account feature allows you to view a weekly schedule of your family's upcoming Activities.
Sign into your account and click on the My Account link. Then click on the Show Your Daily Schedule link. Highlight the family members whose schedules you would like to view and click on the top arrow button and move each family member over to the Selected Family Members column. Click on Search to proceed. A weekly schedule will display all of the activities your family members have been enrolled in and allow you to click on the activity for more information.
Q: What is the wishlist option?
A: The wishlist allows you to make a list of activities that you would like to register for in the future.  The wishlist option is only available when the class has not yet opened for online registration.  The wishlist DOES NOT hold a spot for you in the class or give you priority registration for the activity when it becomes open for registration.  You will need to log in at a later date when the class opens for registration to enroll in the class.

ABC Streets Neighborhood Improvement Project PDF Print Email

The City of Napa's ABC Streets Neighborhood Improvement Project will begin in January 2014. The Project includes sidewalk improvements, tree maintenance and street paving. The Public Works and Parks and Recreation Services Departments will provide information on this upcoming work plan at an informational meeting:

Date: Thursday, December 12, 2013
Time: 6:00 pm
Location: Napa Senior Center, 1500 Jefferson Street

The project area is Jefferson Street to Highway 29 and from Lincoln Avenue to Napa Creek. It's expected the work will take about 12 months to complete.

thumbnailClick on the thumbnail at right to view a set of of informational slides. 

  • Sidewalk Improvements – Damaged sidewalks that create tripping hazards will be repaired/replaced, curbs and gutters will be repaired/replaced to ensure proper drainage, wheelchair accessible ramps will be installed at most intersections, and missing sidewalk will be installed where possible.
  • Tree Maintenance – Many of the older trees in the neighborhood have reached the end of their lifespan, are in decline, and/or are causing sidewalk and curb damage that will require their removal. Every effort will be made to preserve trees that are healthy and not impacting sidewalks. Trees that remain in the neighborhood will be pruned. Replacement trees will be planted for those removed and offered for new locations that may not currently have a tree to aid in reforesting the area.
  • Street Paving – Once the sidewalk and tree work is completed, the City will overlay all streets with new asphalt.
