Novato is currently enjoying
a surge in popularity due to the renovation of downtown, expansive green
spaces, relatively low housing costs, and key geographic location. Located 29
miles north of San Francisco and bordering Sonoma County,
Novato is the
second largest city in the county and close to everything. Novato
has a long list of attractive features for residents and businesses,
including a small town atmosphere, low population density, high household
income, lower housing prices than other Marin County
cities, high investment in public schools and education, and the warmest
climate in the County. Novato has a rural
atmosphere fostered by twenty-seven parks and seven open space preserves that
total around 2,600 acres, including 1,600 acres surrounding Mount Burdell
in Northern Novato.
Housing in Novato is relatively
affordable. The average home price is $578,750 with houses ranging from
$390,000 to $2,500,000 (2003 figures). Novato’s
high personal income level and relatively low housing costs push median
discretionary income for city residents to double the Bay Area average.
Hamilton Field is an exciting new residential, commercial, and cultural
community that is located on the once-vacant Air Force Base. This planned
community has six neighborhoods with over 900 new single-family homes and
many new residents feel there is a real sense of community. There are lots of
recreational facilities including an outdoor Olympic-sized pool, baseball
field, gymnasium, skate park, historic amphitheater, and children’s play
park. Businesses have moved into beautifully renovated old airplane hangars.
