For notes relating to the model i.e. notes intended to inform users of the model, I create a sheet and added them there, and then set the starting view to always open a model at that sheet. The sheet also contains the revision schedule for the model, the drawing schedule, a key/symbol section, a simple picture of the model and the model name.For notes that are to be issued on sheets, I first determine of the notes need to go onto multiple sheets. If so, I write the notes as a legend and drop them onto the sheet. If the notes as one-offs, then I place them as text on the sheet.

I agree with Beau about using legends for notes to be used on multiple sheets but I don't like doing anything in a sheet view.  You can create a drafting view for one-of note blocks.   Drafting views are portable between projects using the transfer view.  You can use copy/paste for legend views.

Our standard notes are in legends in our template.
