Battle for Downtown Danville:

In short, the proposed 2030 General Plan calls for rezoning 10 downtown acres as high-density development, with 20+ units per acre. This would open the doors for landowners and developers to rebuild the properties.

The town of Danville has prepared an update to its existing General Plan, which includes new policies about sustainability, greenhouse gas reduction, priority development areas,and other topics. The updated plan would also consider amending the land use designations at selected sites,mostly located in the downtown area. the Draft Danville 2030 General Plan and its associated Draft Environmental Impact Report (Draft EIR), including information pertaining to the proposed land use changes for each site, is available

This public hearing is being held within the 45-day period to receive public testimony on the Draft EIR.

NOTE: The supporters of this type of planning are well organized. They have been on the “inside” of the planning process for years. They have the unelected city planners on their side. They will be pushing to adopt these policies that interfere with private property rights. Unless we show up in force, they will win the day.
