Protecting Ag Land and Angwin's Rural Character
Our Mission: "To protect agriculture and the natural environment, the twin sources of Napa County's prosperity and quality of life"
Michael Hackett, Chairperson
Save Rural Angwin (SRA) is a grass roots and all-volunteer organization dedicated to protecting and preserving the rural setting and community character of Angwin. We believe in "smart growth". Angwin is an unincorporated village located on Howell Mountain, overlooking the Napa Valley. SRA actively participated in the Napa County General Plan update and Amendment processes (2005-2009) lobbying for policies that encouraged land uses compatible with the character of the area, including its central open space, agricultural focus, and wooded setting while allowing for provision of limited commercial services and workforce housing focused on the Angwin community. SRA supports Pacific Union College in its educational mission. SRA recognizes that there are other options to securing financial support for the college other than conversion of farmland and open space.
"Every unnecessary house built in Angwin is a nail in the coffin of the Napa Valley Agriculture Preserve"
