Climate Action Plan

The Napa County Department of Planning, Building, and Environmental Services (PBES) has been working to develop a Climate Action Plan (CAP) for the County for several years.  The CAP is intended to quantify and reduce green house gas emissions in unincorporated Napa County, and its adoption would implement an “action item” from the County’s 2008 General Plan Update.

A proposed CAP was recommended for adoption by the Planning Commission in early 2012 and later considered by the Board of Supervisors, who sent the planners back to the drawing board for more work.  Among other things, the Board requested that the CAP be revised to better address transportation emissions, and to “credit” past accomplishments and voluntary efforts.  The Board also requested that the Planning Commission consider “best practices” when reviewing projects until a revised CAP can be prepared and adopted.   

The Commission’s current list of best practices was developed with stakeholder input during the spring of 2013 and can be found here. Project applicants are requested to consider these best practices and submit this checklist along with applications for discretionary approvals (e.g. use permits and use permit modifications).

In July 2013, PBES will begin working again with the community to develop and shape a revised CAP that can benefit the County in the future.

The first steps will be to conduct stakeholder interviews and/or small group meetings, as well as larger community forums to solicit ideas and input. 

Please see the project events, below, for times and location of public meetings. 

Interested members of the public are encouraged to attend or to contact Kirsty Shelton at if they wish to provide their input via an interview or small group meeting.
