The Board of Supervisors has been discussing the creation of a phased, code compliance program since March 2016. In August 2017, the Board of Supervisors directed staff to develop a comprehensive Land Use Compliance Program. The Board provided further direction in September 2017 and a draft resolution was prepared for consideration in October 2017.
The 2017 Napa Fire Complex started on October 8, 2017, and the County delayed consideration of the implementation of a code compliance program for one year. During this time, staff from the Department of Planning, Building and Environmental Services met with various stakeholder groups regarding the code compliance resolution and distributed draft documents for public comment and review. The County has now adopted the program and implementing it.
