Accessing Napa County’s official website for aerial photography and Parcel Reports

Napa County has a great website with a huge amount of information that you will find helpful as a seller and a buyer.  To access a property report of a particular property click on http://gis.napa.ca.gov/ and follow these steps:

  1. Click on Analysis on the left hand side
  2. Click on Parcel Report under it. A window will pop up.
  3. Put the parcel number or the address in
  4. Click Submit
  5. Click on Download property report.

The report will tell you the zoning of the property, if it’s in the flood zone or a ground water deficient area.

To access an aerial of the property and surrounding parcels, follow steps 1 to 4 and then:

Click on close rather than download property report
Click on the colorful boxes in the bottom left hand corner of the screen
Put a check mark in Aerial Photos 2011 in the left hand list and the aerial will appear.

Having just finished building a home on a vacant creek side parcel covered in trees, I was fortunate to get firsthand experience of the complexities and challenges of undergrounding utilities, re-routing the neighboring gas and well water lines, installing a new bridge, navigating septic issues and engineering the building site up, so I thought I would share some helpful information from the County for anyone brave enough to consider building or remodeling in Napa Valley.
