The Civic Center will also include a new Fire Station #1 on the current Housing Authority site on the north side of Clay Street at Seminary Street.

A 271-space parking garage will also be constructed on a surface parking lot at 1511 Clay Street (just west of the existing Clay Street Garage).

As proposed, the Superblock would be developed to include: This component of the project will be developed and owned by a private entity (Plenary Properties Napa), and will be subject to a public design review and approval process, anticipated to occur in mid-2018.

A new Civic Center is the most cost effective and safe way for the City to deliver quality services to the community.

Currently, the City’s facilities for public safety and general administration are spread across seven City-owned and - leased buildings, many over 50 years old and in need of upgrades and expansion to accommodate the City’s operational needs and meet modern building codes.

Accessing City services can be confusing to the public.

Consolidating City operations into a Civic Center will eliminate confusion and existing redundancies like multiple break rooms, public counters, and restroom facilities; allow City staff to collaborate with greater ease; and provide better service to the public.

The Civic Center will create a western gateway to Downtown Napa fronting the north side of First Street.

There will be ample public amenities and gathering spaces including a state-of-the-art City Council chambers; training and meeting rooms; public plazas; welcoming public counters; public art; and, as mentioned, a new downtown parking garage.

Importantly, this payment includes repayment of principal and interest of the public bonds, ongoing operations and maintenance costs, dedicated funding for major maintenance and capital replacement, and developer financing.

Importantly, these payments include a dedicated source of funds to ensure the buildings remain in a state of good repair and don’t build up deferred maintenance costs over time.

he Civic Center will consolidate City administrative and public safety functions into a four-story building of approximately 130,000 square feet, including an 18,000- to 24,000-square-foot expansion space on the fourth floor.

The selected site is on the current Community Services Building block (bound by First, Clay, Seminary, and Washington streets).

Further, the City’s operations would remain scattered among several buildings; leases for some City offices would continue at an annual cost of roughly 0,000; and operational efficiencies would not be gained, with customer service continuing to be less than optimal.
