Napa Vision 2050 Endorses Yes on Measure K 
Measure K will provide funds to save Skyline Wilderness Park
and other Wildlands for Future Generations 
Yes, Voters, we can do something to protect our water, parks, and open space now, and for future generations!

The Napa County Regional Parks and Open Space District has been amazingly forward-thinking in addressing climate change and what we need to do to create resilience. For more information about the scope of Measure K or about the work of Parks and Open Space, click here.

By increasing sales tax by 1/4 cent, voters can provide funds to protect over 20,000 acres of watersheds, rolling hills, creeks, and open space. Over a third of this tax will be borne by tourists, paying their share to protect an environment they love to visit - because Napa Valley is so much more than vineyards and wine.

Your Yes vote on March 3, 2020, will help:
  • Reduce wildfire risk through improved vegetation management
  • Protect drinking water and water quality in Napa County rivers, lakes, creeks, and streams by acquiring, preserving and restoring watersheds
  • Protect natural open spaces and wildlife habitat
  • Maintain parks and trails, including larger natural parks and city parks. Dedicated funding proportionate to the population of each of our four cities and town will support parks and open space.
