What is Open Counter?

Open Counter is a web-based tool designed to help small business owners understand the specific license, permits and requirements for starting a business in Novato.

It features both a Zoning Portal, which shows you where your planned project would be permitted, and a Business Portal which helps calculate license and permitting costs.

You don’t need much information to use Open Counter, but the more information you provide, the more accurate your results will be.
