The Novato Chamber has a long history of endorsing community projects. In the late 1920s the Novato Chamber was the only organization North of San Francisco to endorse and support the raising of bond funds for the Golden Gate Bridge. Today, we still endorse projects--but not for the sake of development. We believe that projects should reflect the traditions of our community while addressing the needs for the future vitality of Novato and the North Bay economy. We do not think we have to sacrifice one for the other, and we believe in smart development that embraces sustainable practices so that future generations may enjoy our works and follow our example. Together, in line with leaders, potenial investors and developers, the Novato Chamber is Shaping Tomorrow.
