Danville is No. 1

Was that San Ramon Mayor H. Abram Wilson sporting an "I love Danville" button around town last week? You bet it was! He attended Danville Mayor Mike Shimansky's monthly informal coffee last Friday to pin it on because he lost a bet on the North Coast Section boys soccer championship game between Danville's Monte Vista High School and California High, located in San Ramon. Monte Vista won 1-0.

"My two children went to Monte Vista so I had to deal with them, too," said Wilson.

He took the chance to address the Danville residents at the coffee about the new San Ramon downtown. The 2.1 million-square-foot project will include retail, condos and a water element in the center, said Wilson. The water element will be frozen in the cold weather for ice skating.

"It will benefit the entire area," he said, and is scheduled for completion in 2010.

Shimansky asked about the construction on Crow Canyon Road east of the freeway. Wilson explained the road is being expanded into six lanes to accommodate the new growth in Dougherty Valley. Freeway ramps onto Norris Canyon Road are also in the works to facilitate growth and the new downtown, he added.
