  • Dear Petaluma Paddlers:

    Please fill out the survey or come to the meeting to support kayak access to this new dock in Napa. The current design does not include a low section for kayakers, and there is a right angle in the gangway that prohibits the use of a cart, so your voice is important.

    The City of Napa, Parks and Recreation Services Department will be holding a public information meeting to discuss potential uses of the new 4th Street Boat Dock. Representatives from various City Departments will be on hand to discuss the background on development of the new dock, some basic design features and construction. The intent of the meeting is to gain some initial feedback from the public on use. Your input will help the City in developing a use policy for the new dock.

    Information on the meeting is attached as well as indicted below;

    When; Wednesday April 28th at 5:30 PM
    Where; City Council Chambers – 955 School Street

    As part of the process a dock use survey has been created that will help in developing a potential use policy. You can take the survey online at this link. http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/PJR6LKB . We have included a copy as well.

    The survey and additional information is available on the Parks & Recreation Services page of the City website http://www.cityofnapa.org or can be picked up at the Parks & Recreation Services office, 1100 West Street in Napa.

    This is just the first step in the process that will include future presentations at Parks & Recreation Commission and the City Council meetings.

    Please share this with others that are interested in this process. Your participation is important.

    Thank you!
