Local Measures

Measure L 


The Board of Supervisors of Napa County, State of California, ordains as follows: SECTION 1. Overview. Recent catastrophic fires in Napa County have made it evident that there is a need for a coordinated effort throughout the communities of Napa County to address risks of wildfires. In 2020 alone, the LNU Complex and the Glass fire burned hundreds of thousands of acres, destroying hundreds of buildings, structures and facilities. There continues
to be a growing wildfire risk in Napa County that does not respect jurisdictional boundaries. Intensifying climate change and extensive fuel build-up are contributing to the increasing threat of wildfire throughout the County. This risk needs immediate action and sustained commitment to better protect Napa County residents, homes and businesses. Local fire agencies, communities, emergency service providers, city and town governments and the County must coordinate wildfire prevention and disaster preparedness and mitigation, including maintaining defensible space, reducing combustible vegetation, and making homes fire resistant. The goal of this ordinance is to provide more efficient, effective, and enhanced fire services and programs that protect the health and safety of the public throughout Napa County. Enhanced fire services and programs means an increase in the level of fire services and programs through fire equipment, fire apparatus, fire suppression, infrastructure, technology, staffing, and training. It includes implementation of resilient fire programs such as defensible space inspections, home hardening, wildfire preparedness programs, wildfire prevention, emergency alerts, vegetation management, and education. This ordinance establishes (subject to voter approval) a dedicated source of funds to implement such enhanced fire services and programs throughout the county.

New District Lines—California’s June 7, 2022, Primary Election will be the first opportunity for you to vote for candidates in the newly drawn Congressional, State Assembly, State Senate, Board of Equalization, County Supervisorial, and City Council Districts. Until the newly elected officials take office after the November 2022 General Election, the existing district boundaries remain in effect, and constituents will continue to be represented by the elected officials occupying those offices. For more information on the new district lines, visit the website of your local elections office.

All candidates for voter-nominated offices are listed on one ballot and only the top two vote-getters in the primary election – regardless of party preference – move on to the general election. Write-in candidates for voter-nominated offices can only run in the primary election. A write-in candidate will only move on to the general election if the candidate is one of the top two vote-getters in the primary election.
