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.
