Napa General Plan and EIR
Napa is one of Northern California’s signature cities, at the cultural and economic heart of the wine country. It is strategically located along the Napa River and set among one of the State’s most highly valued agricultural and tourist regions, yet within easy reach of the greater metropolitan Bay Area. The city is home to established neighborhoods, a riverfront downtown that is a regional draw in its own right, and existing and expand-ing economic drivers, both related to the wine industry and otherwise.
The city’s current General Plan is more than 20 years old. Working with a General Plan Advisory Committee, D&B is leading a comprehensive update. Maintaining growth within the existing Rural Urban Limit (concept pioneered in California in Napa County), promoting affordable housing, linking tourism growth to community needs, and promoting sustainable development patterns are priorities. A preferred plan is nearing completion.
