During the Yes on Measure C campaign, it was my great pleasure to work with so many Napa city residents who want to protect the county's hillsides and oak woodlands from over development.
Now we have the opportunity to do the same thing within the city limits.
On Tuesday, June 19, 6:30 p.m., the Napa City Council will be deciding on re-zoning a western hillside to allow building a 51-unit luxury home subdivision (Napa Oaks II).
This project has many negative impacts, including cutting 509 mature oak trees on the ridge line. These trees act to slow storm runoff, provide wildlife habitat, and provide a natural and scenic border between our city and the rural ag lands beyond it. These trees don't need to be cut for luxury homes.
Please attend the City Council meeting and let your voices continue to be heard.
