Description:
Abstract:
Polygons which are areas in Napa County that are identified in accordance with the Napa County General Plan. It identifies area such as Agricultural resources, Industrial, Rural residential and Urban residential.

Purpose:
The General Plan serves as a broad framework for planning the future of Napa County. This General Plan is the official policy statement of the County Board of Supervisors to guide the private and public development of the County.

State law requires that the County's ordinances regulating land use be consistent with the General Plan. The Zoning Code, individual project proposals, and other related plans and ordinances must be consistent with the goals and policies in this General Plan. Because policies in the General Plan reflect a range of competing interests, the decision-makers are allowed to weigh and balance the Plan's policies when applying them, and they have broad discretion to construe the policies in light of the Plan's purposes. Balance does not require equivalence, but rather a weighing of pros and cons to achieve an acceptable mix.

Periodic review and possible amendment of the General Plan to adjust to changing conditions and County priorities is required. This General Plan, while prepared with a time horizon of at least 20 years in mind, is not unchangeable. As circumstances or the County's desires change, this General Plan may be amended by the County Board of Supervisors following review by the Planning Commission. The General Plan may also be amended by the voters of Napa County, and as explained in later sections of the document, there are certain policies and portions of the official Land Use Map that can only be changed by the voters pursuant to Measure J (1990).  (Taken from the 2008-2030 Napa County General Plan)

Supplemental information:
The Napa County General Plan is a Program For The Protection and Development of the unincorporated area of Napa County, composed of numerous interconnected goals and policies.  While the Plan is a flexible guide, it is nonetheless legally binding; development proposals such as land subdivisions and use permits must, by State law, be considered in the light of its contents.  The Plan is a guide which enables citizens to anticipate the County's reaction to individual development programs or projects.  This data was created from hand drawn maps adopted by the Napa County Board of Supervisors and are subject to interpretation.
