St. Helena’s Erica Roetman Sklar has accepted the position of President/CEO of Napa Valley Community Housing (NVCH).

Over the course of nearly 10 years, Roetman Sklar has played a major role in developing projects for Our Town St. Helena (OTSH.) She has provided expertise on land analysis and acquisition, project conceptual development and funding, as well as construction project management.

“While we are sorry to see her go, we are pleased that Erica will be at NVCH — an organization that shares our goal of providing housing opportunities to local communities in Napa County,” said OTSH President Mary Stephenson.

OTSH currently has a five-unit affordable housing project at 963 Pope St. being considered by the City of St. Helena Planning Department with the anticipation of receiving entitlement in late summer 2020. OTSH has entered into a working agreement with NVCH to have their organization manage this project from entitlement through construction. This agreement will allow Roetman Sklar and the experienced staff at NVCH make sure the Pope Street Workforce Village is completed on schedule and on budget.

Stephenson and other OTSH officials wish to thank Roetman Sklar for her “incredible efforts over the last decade, and we look forward to strengthening our relationship with NVCH to provide affordable housing in Napa Valley,” according to a press release.

Our Town St. Helena (OTSH) is a local nonprofit whose goal is to provide affordable housing opportunities for the people vital to the economic health and well-being of St. Helena. OTSH works to preserve existing housing and build new housing for working families and senior citizens.
