What you Can Do Now.
Two weeks ago we held a Town Hall meeting where over 125 engaged Napa residents turned out to express their concerns about the rapid growth of the tourism industry in our Valley and their ideas for possible solutions to its negative impact on our quality of life. Several suggestions were made on how to gain influence. First and foremost: GET INVOLVED!
- Join a City commission, board, or committee. The City of Napa website lists current openings with recruitment open through 5pm on Friday, August 25th.
- Attend City of Napa Planning Commission, City Council, Board of Supervisor and other committee meetings to really see what is going on. To be put on notification lists for city meetings: Contact Patricia Baring for public hearing notices;firstname.lastname@example.org to receive City Council agendas.
- Run for public office or support a candidate who shares your concerns when vacancies occur.
- Write a letter to the Grand Jury. This site will tell you how, when, and why:
