Attention all Westwood Neighborhood Owners and Residents:
Improvements are coming to the Westwood neighborhood, with plans to pave streets and add sidewalks. Please join us at a community meeting to hear from City of Napa staff about what is being planned and to provide your feedback. We'd like to meet you and hear from you. The meeting will be held at the Napa Valley Language Academy Multi-Purpose Room on Tuesday, February 28, from 6pm-8pm.
The City of Napa Water Division is planning to close Browns Valley Road at Valley Glenn Lane on Thursday, February 23 at approximately 9:00 a.m. Due to storm-related erosion that has undermined a sidewalk on Browns Valley Road, urgent maintenance is required on a nearby 12-inch water main to minimize the potential impact to water customers should more erosion occur.
The work may continue through Friday, February 24, with the road open only to local residents. Traffic will be rerouted to Rowena Lane and Partrick Road. The closure will still allow access for Browns Valley Elementary School.
See the attached map to view the closure area.
UPDATE February 22: Kennedy Park has been reopened. Trancas Crossing Park and the Stanly Lane trail are both still closed at this time, as extensive work must be done before reopening.
February 21: City crews continue to assess the status of Napa's parks and trails. At this time, the lower portion of Kennedy park remains closed due to high water. Trancas Crossing Park is closed until further notice. After the water recedes, crews can better assess conditions and work to get the park open by the weekend.
Annual Hydrant Flushing Program runs from December 8, 2016 through March 2017. Visit the program's web page for current maps of areas being flushed. The water used is not waste. It is part of an essential, planned maintenance activity to improve our water quality. Find answers to Frequently Asked Questions.
The City of Napa has issued a request for qualification (RFQ) from all artists who have demonstrated experience in designing and producing, and/or overseeing the production of, site-responsive public art. Through this RFQ process, the City will select an artist (or artist team) to design, fabricate, and collaborate with the local community, to install artwork upon the City’s Corporation Yard fence. This project will be unique in that it encourages a professional artist (or artist team) to utilize members of the community (i.e. young people, seniors, or other groups) to help produce the artwork at the project site.
To learn more, you can view the full project description and RFQ here.
Please feel free to share this opportunity to any artist you think might be interested!
