The Napa 2040 General Plan serves as an essential strategy document for guiding the implementation of key projects in the City through the year 2040. The General Plan outlines the broad plan for addressing "big-picture" issues important to the Napa community, such as: land use, housing, transportation, climate change, community facilities, parks and recreation, historic resources, health and safety, economic development, and more.
The Napa community will undoubtedly evolve demographically, technologically and economically over the next 20 years, as will policies and best practices that affect the City and the work done in Napa. The General Plan provides the overall roadmap, allowing space for additional, timely strategic plans that draw on up-to-date information and realities to guide implementation decisions. In order for the General Plan to stand the test of time, some specific language related to goal-settings and milestones will reflect the need for this document to remain relevant for two decades.
The City of Napa reminds community members that the General Plan update process is a democratic process, and all feedback is welcome in order for the document to best reflect the long-term goals of the Napa community.
The draft Napa 2040 General Plan Update is available for public review and comment at Napa2040.com. The public is invited and encouraged to provide input during all phases of the General Plan. City leadership will then use public input to inform their decision-making process. The public is encouraged to provide feedback during the public comment period, which is now open through April 25, 2022.
