City of American Canyon - 2010-2020

Loewke Planning Associates was originally retained to develop and test a wide range of potentially feasible land uses for a beautiful 112 acre site situated at the base of the hills along the easterly edge of the City of American Canyon. Based on an agreement with Napa County, the City adopted sweeping changes to its General Plan, Zoning and Urban Limit Line (ULL) in 2009. These changes placed a majority of this property outside the ULL, but also provided for annexation of the 38 acres retained inside the ULL, while placing a "Study" designation on these 38 acres. Prior to pursuit of annexation, we worked closely with City staff and elected officials to examine and test alternative land use concepts for consistency with key General Plan policies and City "Priorities", including the special needs assessment in the City's Housing Element, and various economic development goals and objectives focused on strengthening and expanding the City's wine industry, tourism and job base.


This process led to the realization that there was a lack of custom or semi-custom housing in the community for top executives of prospective new and expanding local companies, and that a strategic supply of executive housing could support locational decisions by employers in several key sectors. As a result we have approached the planning and design of this project on a carefully coordinated basis with the City, in order to achieve a feasible scale of development while maintaining environmental sensitivity, addressing local facility and service needs, and creating a unique residential community within walking distance of the City's future downtown. We successfully prepared and processed applications for Rezoning, General Plan Amendment, Annexation, Vesting Tentative Map, Design Guidelines, Army Corps of Engineers Permit, CDFW Streambed Alteration, and RWQCB 401 Certification.

The Canyon Estates custom home project in Napa County received all local, regional, state and federal permits, and has had all engineering for its Improvement Plans and Final Map completed. Construction is scheduled to begin in Spring 2020, and reservations for the 35 one-half to one acre custom home view lots are now being accepted by Canyon Estates Homes LLC. Subdivision improvements are expected to be completed by Fall 2020, and custom home construction is expected to begin in late Summer 2020.
