Parts of the Bay Area are poised to get a new area code.
The new code will take effect in parts of the Northbay. The 707 area code will run out of phone numbers soon because of high demand due to a proliferation of cell phones, for example. The 707 area code will run out of numbers by December 2023.
The new area code, 369, will go into effect in February of 2023 and will NOT affect people who already have a 707 area code.
Here’s a list of affected Bay Area communities:
Portions of Del Norte, Glenn, Humboldt, Lake, Marin, Mendocino, Napa, Solano, Sonoma, Tehama and Trinity counties and the cities of American Canyon, Arcata, Benicia, Calistoga, Cotati,Clearlake, Cloverdale, Vallejo, Crescent City, Dixon, Eureka, Fairfield, Ferndale, Yountville,Fort Bragg, Healdsburg, Lakeport, Napa, Novato, Petaluma, Point Arena, Rio Dell, Rio Vista, Rohnert Park, Saint Helena, Santa Rosa, Sebastopol, Sonoma, Suisun City, Trinidad, Ukiah, Vacaville, Windsor, and Willits.
