The Napa Valley Transportation Authority (NVTA) will be conducting public outreach meetings this month in Calistoga, American Canyon and St. Helena.
The meetings are part of the Community Based Transportation Plan, focusing on disadvantaged communities and areas of concern or areas in Napa County with a concentration of low-income and/or non-English speakers and/or elderly and/or those with disabilities.
The meetings are as follows:
- Calistoga, 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., Wednesday, Oct. 10 at the Calistoga Community Center, 1307 Washington St.
- American Canyon, 1-3 p.m., Friday, Oct. 12 at the American Canyon Senior Center, 2185 Elliott Drive
- St. Helena, 12:30-3:30 p.m., Friday, Oct. 26, Rianda House Senior Activity Center, 1475 Main St.
The purpose of these outreach events are to speak with residents and understand if the available programs, services, and infrastructure are meeting their mobility needs. There will be pamphlets and information on how the NVTA can help residents get to medical appointments, make trips to the grocery store, and have the ability to travel for other errands and meetings.
If these services are not enough or are not the right kind of services, NVTA officials would like to understand how and what they can do to bridge any gaps they may experience in travelling to and from events.
