On my Mind
What makes Novato so special? Well, one doesn’t have to look too much farther than our city’s birthday bash, Paint the Town Red. I often find myself trying to describe Novato’s unique community character with words, but the annual Paint the Town Red event certainly exhibits everything we love about Novato and this year’s event on Friday was no exception. First and foremost, an extra special thank you to all the volunteers who work tirelessly for months to organize the event. The venue was packed this year, the food and entertainment was excellent, and watching Susan Stompe’s reaction to being named the Citizen of the Year was the highlight of the evening.
Cooper’s Public Market is Open for Business – I made sure to stop by on Saturday and there was definitely a good crowd filling the market. Hope everyone gets a chance to visit soon and often. My wife and I picked up some organic pasture raised eggs, amongst other things, from Red Hill Farms and I had a couple of them for breakfast this morning and I could certainly taste the difference.
Wayfinding Signage – Starting tomorrow and continuing through February it will be a little easier for individuals to find their way around town. The City will begin installing directional and destination signage, as well as informational kiosks, in 24 locations throughout the Downtown. A total of 31 signs and 6 kiosks will be installed. For a complete list of streets where signs will be installed and additional information, you can visit the Downtown Novato Wayfinding Signage Program’s website here.
