[Jeff Sharp of Napa County Planning sends this update on the WAA. For more on the WAA see the comments on our Watershed Issues Page]
This email is being provided to inform you of proposed updates to Napa County’s Water Availability Analysis (WAA) Policy.
On January 7, 2015 the County Planning Commission received a presentation by County staff and took comments from the public on proposed updates to the County’s WAA Policy. To provide adequate time for the County to review and respond to the excellent input received, plans are to return to the Planning Commission on March 18th. On or before February 20th a list of all the comments received along with proposed responses will be published along with a revised draft of the WAA Policy with tracked changes from the previous public version. Any further written comments received by March 10th will be included in the Planning Commission’s March 18th agenda packet. Thank you again for all your input!
While not directly related to the WAA Policy, you may also be interested in attending two upcoming meetings. On March 3rd, the Board of Supervisors will hear an update regarding current groundwater conditions based on latest well monitoring data, as well as an update on implementation of recent state legislation on groundwater. On March 10th the Board of Supervisors and Planning Commission are scheduled to conduct a joint hearing on future growth planning. Agendas for these meetings will be posted on www.countyofnapa.org about a week before each meeting.
