In 2018, the City of Napa completed adding medians along Soscol Avenue between Gasser Drive and Sousa Lane with the additional development along this corridor to enhance safety and overall
traffic flow (see project site maps Attachment 1 and Attachment 2). The Public Art Steering Committee (PASC) and City Council identified the the Soscol Avenue
medians as a priority and the project was approved in April 2022 .
The south Soscol Avenue is an important corridor within the City of Napa and is a significant roadway into the City from the south entrance from Highway 221/121. With the gateway project
at the 1st Street and California Street Roundabout under development, this project would complete another important public art project in the community. This project will be adding to other public art projects along this corridor including projects under development at Chrysler and Soscol Square properties (see Attachment 3). The proposed City project will augment and
strengthen the other public art installations nearby and continue to enhance the aesthetics along this commercial corridor.
In addition to diversifying more projects within the overall public art program, this project would also support one of the overall goals of the Public Art program which is to support more projects outside of the downtown area as well as provide more access and equity to public art throughout the community.
