Saturday in Novato is going to be amazing! Starting with Novato Clean & Green Day / Novato Dia De Limpieza, from 9am-1pm, as volunteers in the community clean up our #sweethomenovato, followed by the brand new Green Living Festival from noon-4pm in celebration of Earth Day. Both of these FREE community events take place at the Civic Green next to 901 Sherman Avenue. Volunteer to clean up, then take in the sights, sounds, talks, electric cars, and food at the Green Living Festival.
Register for Clean & Green Day at novatostreetscape.com.

The City Council continues to conduct public hearings as part of the transition from at-large elections to by-district elections. At the next City Council meeting of April 23, the Council requests public feedback on the proposed draft district maps submitted by demographer Doug Johnson with the National Demographics Corporation. These draft maps, along with demographics for each map, are now available at novato.org/elections.
We also have an Interactive Review Map, which allows the public to view the proposed new district maps and zoom in and out to see the map details. Also, you may print it out and share your feedback with the Council on the proposed drafts and/or provide them with a map of your design. You are welcome to send your comments and/or maps to the City Clerk at email@example.com no later than Tuesday, April 30, 2019.
