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.

Open Counter

Posted on May 15, 2017


City staff is proposing an innovative and customer-friendly way to interact with zoning and permitting information. At Monday’s meeting, the City Council will consider authorizing the City’s use of OpenCounter, an online platform that brings together the simplicity of form and function for zoning and permitting. The software assists those looking to undertake renovation, expansion and relocation projects, or open a new business in San Rafael.  From the comfort of your own home or office, users can access zoning requirements, fees, and processing times that will apply to their planned use and location.
