St. Helena General Plan Update and EIR
Located in the heart of Napa Valley, St. Helena is one of the Bay Area’s most picturesque small towns, with a population of 6,200 and a land area of about five square miles. Dyett & Bhatia assisted the City with a targeted update to the General Plan, focused on incorporating policies to address new State requirements that have come into force since the plan was last updated and extending the horizon year of the plan. Issues central to the effort include growth management, economic development, historic resource preservation, public safety, and agricultural preservation. The effort also included preparation of an EIR and analysis of sensitive environmental resources and capacity constraints in areas outside the City limit where municipal services are provided.
