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. In the meantime, you can check out the new General Plan 2040 site here:

Salt Marsh Mosquito - What You Need to Know

Have you noticed more nibbles from the salt marsh mosquitoes lately? The Napa Valley Register just published an article about the pesky insect - read more here. The Napa Valley Unified School District also shared the following information in their regular newsletter, outlined below:

Here are a few mosquito facts for our students, parents and members of the community who use school playing fields.

1. The salt marsh mosquito does NOT carry West Nile virus or any other disease. The bite can be painful and leave a welt.
2. Salt marsh mosquitoes breed in tidal marsh water, not fresh water, so standing water on campus or irrigated school fields are not a source of the mosquitoes.
3. This is an unusual event, and the Mosquito Abatement District expects the hatch to be over soon.

Neither mowing the grass nor reducing irrigation will reduce the number of mosquitoes, so NVUSD will not take those steps. State law will not allow us to use insecticides on the school campus. So our best option is to wait until the adult mosquito activity is over.
In the meantime, long pants and long sleeves can help protect your child from mosquito bites. School staff will monitor the situation at each school and will take proper steps to reduce your child’s exposure during the school day, which may include keeping children off of grassy areas or fields, etc. 

If you have questions, please feel welcome to call NVUSD at (707) 253-3538.
