The Town of Yountville General Plan is, to put it simply, its constitution for development. It is comprised of elements that provide a comprehensive slate of townwide policies and goals. The General Plan influences the regulations in the municipal code, particularly the zoning and design ordinances.
In 1992, the Yountville Town Council adopted Resolution 935-92 which officially adopted the 1992 Yountville General Plan. Since then, the Council has approved several amendments, though the bulk of the plan has remained the same.
The plan with the most recent 2001 amendments can be viewed at the following link:

In 2015, the Yountville Town Council adopted new versions of the Town's Housing Element and Circulation Element. The Housing Element is updated every eight years, 2015 being the most recent. The Circulation Element update was also adopted in 2015, primarily to establish "Complete Streets" policies. These updates enabled the Town to receive funding for transportation projects.
The two updates can be viewed at the following links:

In 2016, the Town of Yountville participated in a community-wide citizen satisfaction survey, conducted by the National Citizen Survey.

In general, almost all who responded to the survey rated the quality of life in Yountville as excellent or good. Residents rated the overall quality of life higher than the national benchmark.
