In response to community concerns about noise the San Rafael and Novato City Councils have established a Quiet Zone effective immediately. The train horn will not blow at railroad crossings.


Like cities across the country,  homelessness is a top priority for our community.  The City Council is spearheading a variety of initiatives to address homelessness including: the Downtown Streets Team,  a Mental Health Resource Officer position in our Police Department, and individualized paths back to housing for our most at-risk residents through the HOT team.  We work closely with local organizations like the County of Marin's Health & Human Services, the Ritter Center,  St. Vincent De Paul and Homeward Bound of Marin.  Learn more about the City's efforts on this issue in the blog posts below.
