Danville launches public outreach effort for its Downtown Plan Update
While so much has changed in the past few years, one thing has remained the same for Danville’s community – the innate desire to gather in Danville’s well-loved public spaces. The Town has begun the process of updating the Downtown Plan and has partnered with urban design firm SWA to reimagine how it might use some of the public spaces within the downtown to provide essential connection, interaction and engagement.
The goal is to create ‘activated’ public spaces that are visually coordinated and balance the need for adequate public parking, drainage facilities, accessibility to all businesses and essential services such as trash pick-up.
The Town is seeking community input through a survey that will focus on how businesses and residents envision improvements to Danville’s treasured downtown spaces. The survey is expected to take about five minutes and will be available from January 7 to February 14. Other intercept events will be held around town and at the Danville Farmers’ Market.
For additional project information, to take the survey, or to stay informed throughout the process, visit www. danvilletowntalks.org/downtown-master-plan or email Jill Bergman, Business and Economic Development Director, at DMP@danville.ca.gov.
