Napa is a small town that has seen tremendous growth in the last thirty years. With the advent of AirBNB, VRBO, Uber, DoorDash, Amazon and many other delivery services, our residential streets are seeing more traffic than ever before. Our population has increased 25% and tourism has increased significantly too.
Many neighborhoods are finding increased traffic and speeding on streets, imperiling children, pets and pedestrians, not to mention the noise and disruption of fast cars on quiet streets. We hope to recruit a captain from each neighborhood who can work with us and the powers that be to find solutions that work for their specific area.
Solutions are unknown at this point, we have to work with city leaders to find out what options are available and how we can implement changes that will make our streets safe for everyone.
Cars are frequently driving 10 miles or more over the speed limit on quiet residential streets.
