Welcome to Cotati, CA!
Cotati is located approximately eight miles south of Santa Rosa, nine miles north of Petaluma and 47 miles north of San Francisco near Highway 101. Named after a Miwok Native American village, Kota’ti, the peaceful-looking region with its rolling hills and colorful fields is primarily a residential community made up agriculture and local business enterprise.
