The SHAPE Committee consists of eleven members appointed by the City Council.


The City Council is planning to conduct a Facilities Condition and Needs Assessment (FCNA) to document and analyze the City's existing built facilities to assist the City with prioritizing capital improvements.

The general purpose of the St. Helena Assets Planning Engagement (SHAPE) Committee will be to identify alternatives to address deficiencies and opportunities identified in the FCNA, challenges identified in the Long Range Financial Forecast (LRFF) and feasibility of concepts identified in the 2009 Visioning Statement (e.g. library expansion, civic building/amphitheater, community center, etc.). Additionally, the Committee will be identifying financial strategies (along with identifying consequences and trade-offs) for City Council consideration to address identified deficiencies, opportunities and/or utilization of community assets.

The facilities the SHAPE Committee will be considering are: Carnegie, City Hall/Police Department, Fire Station, Former CDF Office Building, Head Start Building, Public Works Corporation Yard, Scout Hall, Signorelli Barn, St. Helena Public Library, and the Teen Center. Further information regarding these locations can be found in the documents below.
