Cotati Downtown Plaza

Cotati's hexagonal town plan, one of only two in the United States, was designed during the 1890s by Newton Smyth as an alternative to traditional grid land planning. The six-sided town plaza was designed for founder Thomas Page, and each of the surrounding streets is named after one of Page's sons. 'Cotati' derives from "Kotati", a local Pomo Indian chieftan.

Plaque placed by the State Department of Parks and Recreation in cooperation with the City of Cotati and all organizations, June 7, 1975.
