The purpose of the Commission is to serve as a communication vehicle between older adults and the local organizations designed to render services to the older adult community.
The Commission establishes committees to address legislation and public education. Ad-hoc committees are created from time to time to handle special topics brought to the Commission. Annual Reports to the Board of Supervisors discuss the many pressing problems facing older adults in Napa County.
Regular meetings are held on the fourth Monday of each month from 2:00 – 4:00 p.m. in the Board of Supervisors Chambers at 1125 Third Street in Napa. Special meetings are held in various other locations throughout the county. There are no meetings in May or December.
The Commission was established Sept. 12, 1977.
The Commission serves as an advocate for older persons by helping them to maintain a good quality of life and to remain independent by increasing awareness of the issues facing older adults in Napa County and by influencing public policy through regular reports to the Board of Supervisors.
The Commission has 15 members who serve for two year terms. One representative is nominated from each of the five supervisorial districts. The remaining 10 members are concerned citizens who are recommended by organizations working with older adults.
The Commission welcomes the opportunity to hear from the public. If you have an issue that you would like to have addressed, please join us at any of our scheduled meetings.
