NVTA in June 2016 convenedCitizen Advisory Committee (CAC) to focus on issues related to all modes of transportation — automobile, transit, biking, walking  with a goal of updating our transportation infrastructure and improving the health and wellbeing of our community in Napa Valley.

CAC members will assist NVTA staff with the planning of important countywide plans and projects. Members at the first meeting, for instance, received an overview of NVTA’s Vine Transit Express Bus Study to determine how to reduce congestion and improve commuting options on Napa County's busiest travel corridors: SR-29, SR-221 and SR-12.

In total, 19 members will be appointed to the CAC to represent a broad spectrum of interests and the diverse communities in Napa Valley. Six of those members will be appointed by the elected boards of Napa County's jurisdictions: the cities of American Canyon, Calistoga, Napa and St. Helena; the Town of Yountville; and the County of Napa. Members will serve two-year terms. Meetings will be typically held Wednesday evenings at 5 p.m. at NVTA's office at 625 Burnell Street in Napa; six regular meetings will be held a year.

Please read the CAC bylaws for more information on becoming a member.
