The other monster project in south Napa, the 1250 unit housing project proposed above and around the cement works ruins in American Canyon seems to be coming alive agin after years in planning limbo. Its selling points this time around are the promise to fund a new elementary school and 20% of a new middle school and the addition of 100 more rooms to the previously proposed 100 room hotel (more TOT the city manager enthuses!)
As with Napa Pipe, the project is a complete disaster for the already gridlocked American Canyon - Napa Pipe strip. The entire massive project will dump out on S. Napa Junction Road or Rio Del Mar Rd waiting, no doubt, for the off ramps from the freeway berm that will ultimately bisect the town.
The project is just one further chunk of the Vallejo-Napa metropolitan area that will soon unite Napa with the rest of the Bay Area's suburban sprawl.
