Meeting Agendas and Minutes
The Napa County Planning Commission holds public hearings and makes recommendations to the Board of Supervisors concerning updates and amendments to the County's General Plan and Zoning Code. The Planning Commission also holds hearings and make decisions on a variety of land use proposals and entitlements, including Use Permits, Subdivisions and Parcel Maps. There are five members on the Commission that are appointed by the Board of Supervisors.
All members serving of the Commission are selected by Supervisorial District and serve for the term, which expires one month following the date the Commissioner's nominating Supervisor leaves office. When a Commissioner's term ends due to the nominating Supervisor leaving office, only the newly elected or appointed Supervisor is entitled to nominate a replacement to fill the vacancy.

For agenda posting notification, you can either:
The Zoning Administrator (ZA) hears and decides on a broad range of minor planning permit applications over which he or she has authority (see Title 18.10.020 of the County Zoning Code). The ZA may use discretion and forward an application to the Conservation, Development and Planning Commission if it is determined that the public interest would be furthered by having the Commission hear and decide upon a particular project. Zoning Administrator meetings are held on an as needed basis. Please visit the Public Notices page for items scheduled.
As allowed under the County Code, Hillary Gitelman, Director of Conservation, Development and Planning, has delegated ZA duties to John McDowell, Deputy Planning Director.
