● Educational Resources Where is the nearest public library? Discuss the Schools and Universities/Community colleges ? The nearest public library is North from my primary location within 10 blocks radius. Napa Community College is located within 10 blocks radius of my primary location. Immediate schools include Philips Margnet Elementary school, Silverado Middle school, and The Oxbow School. ● Religions What signs of religion do you see? Discuss the types of churches, mosques, temples? What services are offered by these churches, e.g., Day Care, Mother’s Day Out, Summer Camps, Languages Classes, Citizenship Classes, Food Banks, Clothing, other . Sign of religion I observed includes The Father House, Hillside Christian Church, First Presbyterian Church and Saint Joseph Baptist Roman Catholic Church. The Father House offers worship service, online service, bible class and kids bible classes. Hillside Christian Church offers worship service, online service, Summer bible study and men’s prayer, sisterhood bible study. First Presbyterian Church of Napa offers worship service, online sermon, vacation bible school and men’s bible study. Business & Industry Describe stores and shops available in the community, e.g., grocery stores, gas stations, department stores. What type of business climate exists? Manufactures? Light or heavy industry? Large employers? Small business owners? Retail? Hospitality industry? Do people have to seek employment elsewhere? Is this considered a “bedroom community”- where people work outside this community but live here ? Make sure you address fully what you observed and NOTE if something was not found within your community area. In the immediate area there is the South Napa Market Place which includes Home Depot, Target, Office Depot, and Raley’s. There is another shopping 4465-5_19
center right across which includes department store Marshalls, Home Goods, and Michaels Craft Store. East of primary location we have Rite Aid, CVS, and Sweeny Sports. Napa has several gas stations in the immediate area which includes several Chevron gas stations and Shell gas station. I observed a growing confidence in the economy business climate. I did not observe any manufactures in the immediate area. I observed a light industry. I observed large employers like Target, OLE Health, and Napa State Hospital. I also observed small business owners in retail like our local farmer market vendors, and food trucks parked alongside the main road. Napa offer hospitality which includes several wine tours, hotels, and the famous wine train tour. I observe people community outside the county, I would consider this community a “bedroom community” were people work outside the community but live there. Politics What indicators do you see about politics? Posters? Headquarters ?
