City Now Accepting Applications for General Plan Advisory Committee

The City of Napa is now accepting applications for the General Plan Advisory Committee (GPAC). The City’s General Plan helps to guide decision-making by residents, property owners, business interests, and elected and appointed officials about public and private land use and development that shape Napa’s physical environment. Envision Napa 2020, the City’s current General Plan, was adopted in 1998.

To assist with the General Plan Update, the City is establishing an advisory committee comprised of 10 to 15 members from the general public. You can learn more about the scope of the Committee and fill out the online application at Applications are due by 4:00 PM on Friday, September 7, 2018.

The City envisions that the group will include Napa residents, business owners, neighborhood groups, and other community stakeholders who have a broad interest in long-range planning issues facing Napa. The selection process will focus on identifying GPAC members who can bring broad, community-wide thinking to the GPAC process rather than represent specific interest groups.

No Mace in the Recycling
