Community Visioning Workshop Oct. 8th


After two months of asking everyone we talk to their thoughts about American Canyon's vision, the results are finally in!  


More than 1,100 people attended a focus group, visioning outreach meeting or responded to a survey.  Curious?  


Join us at 6:30 PM on October 8 in the City Council chambers in City Hall to get a look at what we learned.  At this meeting the City Council will review the community input and draft a City Vision Statement to guide us into our desired future. 


Next steps:  use the new vision statement 

to create goals and strategies.  


Join us on October 8 for this informal and interactive meeting!



Economic Development Website


Our new Economic Development Manager, Pankti Clerk, recently launched a new economic development page on the City's website.  The new website provides links to current and potential business owners to help them find information they need to do business in American Canyon.  

The new section on the website, the Business Development Center, will continue to expand and provide interesting and helpful information to business.  Take a look!

Scenario One:  You have a couple young children and Halloween is just around the corner.  You are already hearing about costumes (I understand Duck Dynasty camo is the big thing this year), candy, and trick-or-treating.  But what will you do if you'd rather not walk the neighborhood streets scaring people's pets and demanding candy?  Our own Recreation Department has the perfect remedy for your dilemma:  our annual Halloween Extravaganza on October 26th at 6 PM!   Bring your little princess or superhero to the Community Gym for a fun evening of carnival games, costume contests, bounce houses and more.  Its Halloween - you just never know what surprises might appear! 


Scenario Two:  The kids are too old for dressing up any more, but you still want to be involved.  You heard that the City has a scholarship program to help low- income families that want to participate in healthy recreation programs.  You don't have anything else to do on October 26th.  Again:  our annual Halloween Extravaganza!  This year you have the opportunity to be a sponsor/host of one of the carnival games for $25, which all goes into the scholarship fund.  For $25, you will have a table and can display a banner about your business or group.  You will host a fun game and award prize tickets to the little ninja's to redeem for cool prizes.  Interested?  Call Parks and Rec at 648-7275 for more information.


The annual Halloween Extravaganza is one of our biggest events of the year.  And now everyone has a reason to be there!


On The Agenda....

Our next City Council Meeting is Tuesday, October 1st at 6:30 PM. The City Council will hear about planning efforts in the City's "Priority Development Area" (PDA) along Highway 29. The City has received several planning and infrastructure grants which will be used to develop a Specific Plan along the PDA upon approval of the City Council. A Specific Plan is a tool that effectively links general plan policies with individual development proposals for a defined area by providing guidance on many facets of development from the type, location, and intensity of uses, to the design and capacity of infrastructure, resources to finance public improvement, and design guidelines for new construction. The full agenda lists all items that will be considered for action by the City Council.



Public Safety Open House on Oct 6th


Do police cars really have cages in them?  Do all fire stations have Dalmatians?  How big is a fire hose?  How loud is a police car siren?  Learn the answers to all this and more at the annual Public Safety Open House on Sunday, Oct. 6th, 11 AM - 2 PM, at the Public Safety Building, 911 Donaldson Way East

 Public Works Project Updates... 

  • The South Broadway Improvement Project is wrapping up:  the paving and striping are done, and landscapers are planting new trees and shrubs.  A Notice of Completion is anticipated in early November. 
  • The pre-construction meeting for the pavement management project (a rejuvenating seal on various streets around town) is set for September 30.  Tentative plans are for work to start on October 7.  Notices to residents will go out next week.
  • The No Parking signs will be installed next week at the northeast corner of American Canyon Road and Hwy 29.  This should alleviate the problems created when big-rigs park overnight in this shoulder.  
  • Paving Project Scheduled for Lena and Stetson: Streets crews from the City of American Canyon and the City of Napa will join forces in early October to re-pave Lena Drive, Stetson Drive and a small section of Danrose Drive near the southern city limits. Click here for all the details. View an aerial map of the area here.
