General Plan Updates

Upcoming Outreach Events 

Efforts are underway to develop a new General Plan for the City of Napa. One of the goals at the heart of the General Plan process is community outreach and engagement. Ensuring that our residents have a voice in the process is key to developing a General Plan that truly serves our community for many years to come. In the coming weeks, you will see an increase in outreach, which will include workshops, pop-up events, print and online outreach (in English and Spanish), as well as participation in various community events.

Here is a round-up of important dates to look out for:

Early March: Launch of a community-wide online survey to gain community feedback on General Plan direction, as well as an informational newsletter with General Plan updates
March 11: Community Workshop, New Tech High School
April 1: General Plan Advisory Committee Meeting, NVTA Board Room
April 30: Joint Meeting of the Planning Commission and City Council

As these dates get closer, more information will be available at, as well as the City’s Facebook, Nextdoor and Twitter pages.
