COMMUNITY FORUM FOR NAPA COUNTY FAIRGROUNDS JPA
The City of Calistoga will be holding an open community forum on Wednesday, September 20th, 2017 at 6:00pm in the Community Center to discuss the City’s role in the creation of a Joint Powers Agency. Since October 2016, officials from the City of Calistoga and County of Napa, including 2 elected officials and key staff persons from each, have met to discuss the possible creation of a joint powers agency to oversee and govern the property commonly known as the Fairgrounds.
The Fairgrounds property is owned by the County of Napa and is located within the City limits of Calistoga. The Fairground has various uses which impact our community and both Parties believe it is important that Napa County and Calistoga have joint governance over the Fairgrounds through the creation of a Joint Powers Agency. The Parties are committed to the following: making the Fairgrounds economically viable; providing long term land stewardship, and; addressing outstanding liabilities and concerns related to maintenance, operations and public use.
The City of Calistoga invites you to join us for a brief presentation and provide input/comments to City officials before a formal JPA agreement is considered. Community input/feedback is an important piece of this year-long effort to develop a new governance model for the Fairgrounds and input/feedback will be presented to the Napa County Board of Supervisors and Calistoga City Council in the near future. If you have any questions please contact Dylan Feik, city manager, at firstname.lastname@example.org, or 707-942-2806.
