About Measure K
In Napa County, we are fortunate to enjoy some of the most beautiful natural open space our region has to offer. Our vast natural areas, extensive trails, streams and wildlife help make Napa County a wonderful place to live and improve the quality of life for us all.
Protecting Our Local Water
Protecting the quality of our water is becoming increasingly important, and we need this local measure to protect our local water supply in Napa County and protect the quality of water in many of our rivers, creeks and streams.
Protecting Open Space & Preventing Wildfires
This measure would protect over 20,000 acres of watersheds, rolling hills, creeks and open space right here in our community, protecting essential natural areas and wildlife habitat. Maintaining open space lands and managing forests are a critical component of reducing wildfire risk and keeping our neighborhoods safe.
Protecting Napa County for Future Generations
We must act now to protect Napa County’s natural areas, parks and water. The longer we wait to make these essential protections, the more expensive it will be. Without Measure K, unprotected natural land could eventually be lost to development and gone forever, causing even more overcrowding, traffic and demand for water. This measure is the only way to protect our essential open space and natural wildlife for generations to come.

Measure K Helps Protect Our Agricultural Heritage
More funding means more protection of both ranch lands such as Suscol Headwaters Preserve & farm and vineyard lands near the urban limit lines around our cities to help preserve these agricultural spaces forever.
Tourists Pay their Fair Share
Tourists from outside our area would pay more than one third of the total fund to protect our water and open space in Napa County. Plus, this measure would help ensure our county gets its fair share of State and Federal matching funds.
