Cinedome Master Plan


Receive a report and provide Staff direction on the draft Cinedome Master Plan.



Adopted in 2012, the Downtown Specific Plan recognizes three geographic areas with strategic locations and an existing mix and intensity of land uses that offer varying development opportunities. The specific areas are identified as the Town Center Focus Area, Copia Focus Area, and the Cinedome Focus Area.

The Focus Area includes the former location of the CineDome movie theater, City-owned properties adjacent to Oxbow Commons (currently surface parking lots - Lot X and Lot X-West), and the Napa Sanitation District (NSD) property currently occupied by a now-defunct pump station, playground, and skate park.

The Downtown Specific Plan outlined ten specific objectives for the Cinedome Focus Area to guide future redevelopment of the properties:

- Promote mixed-use, office, and residential uses;
- Improve bicycle and pedestrian connections in relation to Oxbow Commons;
- Encourage development to provide access and visual connections to Oxbow Commons and the Downtown Core;
- Promote mixed-use development and a plaza facing Oxbow Commons;
- Ensure building massing allows passage or circulation to destinations and public spaces;
- Encourage pedestrian and bicycle promenades and seating areas along Oxbow Commons;

- Minimize impact of development on the NSD property on neighboring residential uses;
- Respect adjacent historic buildings; and
- Enhance vitality and activity adjacent to Napa River, Napa Creek, and Oxbow Commons
