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 amendments can be viewed at the following link:
1966 General Plan
1975 General Plan
1985 General Plan
1992 General Plan
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:
2015 Housing Element
2015 Circulation Element
Though not formally part of the Yountville General Plan, The Climate Action Plan contains policies consistent with elements of the General Plan.
2016 Climate Action Plan
In 2016, the Town of Yountville participated in a community-wide citizen satisfaction survey, conducted by the National Citizen Survey. Initial survey materials were sent to the community in early February. After several waves of mailing, the data was collected, processed, and analyzed. 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.
2016 Citizen Satisfaction Survey Results
Several transportation plans, under the direction of the Napa Valley Transportation Agency (NVTA), have been completed and adopted which present policies and goals related to active transportation. These plans include Yountville specific appendices. These plans are available below:
