The Napa County Board of Supervisors on Tuesday gave the green light to three measures being placed on November election ballots.
The board will ask voters to approve a countywide half-cent sales tax measure for road repairs. It would generate about $11 million annually if approved by voters.
The Napa Valley Transportation Authority’s board of directors last week approved a resolution asking the supervisors to place the tax measure on ballots.
The supervisors also approved a ballot measure that would allow the non-golfing public to be served at the Chardonnay golf course restaurant, which sits on agricultural land. Current code limits the facility to golfers, a rule that isn’t enforced.
Supervisors determined that this policy change requires a public election under Measure P, the voter-approved law regulating commercial uses on agricultural lands.
Supervisor Bill Dodd said he would support the Chardonnay measure but disagreed with the opinion that a Measure P vote was necessary, and voted against putting it on the ballot.
The third measure will ask voters to lift weight limits on the Napa County Airport’s main runway. Those limitations were put in place by voters in the 1970s, thus requiring a popular vote to increase them.
The higher weight limits won’t change the class of aircraft that lands at the airport, but will allow the facility to rebuild the aging runway, county officials said.
