Letters to the editor

Keep skyline clear

Dear Editor:

Regarding development in the Valley, I believe that enormous properties should be clear of the skyline, especially in the skyline rich Tassajara Valley. It is a special place.

I first came to Danville in 1986, and I fell in love with it. It's been a love/hate relationship. I mean, me being a single man with no kids and non-college educated, but I see the appeal of being a resident here, lucky enough to be living on the Iron Horse trail, to boot! It's just a very nice, if somewhat conservative, place.

And by god, I SAW what they did to the Dougherty Valley! I used to love driving through there with the flat landscape sprinkled with charming homes. I would imagine I was driving through the English countryside, during the fall months. Not anymore!

An infamous dictator once said: "Give me two weeks, and you won't recognize your towns!" Well, land developers don't use weapons, they use bulldozers!

Thanks for the info

Dear Editor:

Thank you very much for the 2007-2008 informative yearly magazine, info Danville. It is easy to see the enormous amount of effort that your staff put into this publication. It has a wealth of information concerning the area for all the residents of the San Ramon Valley. I will be using it as a great reference source.

Betty Joyce, Danville
