Dear Dolores,

I have participated in several investors' meetings with regional neighborhood groups. Danville's commercial environment has been reviewed several times with Iron Horse corridor neighborhood groups. Reviewing notes from such discussions, the following is a list of needs for Danville to establish a more regionally inviting commercial/retail environment:

#1 - Connection of commercial/retail areas from Sycamore to Love Lane and rejuvenation of Danville north of Diablo Road and South on San Ramon Blvd.

#2 - Larger facilities for anchor retail on Hartz and Railroad.

#3 - A boutique hotel and meeting/hospitality facilities.

#4 - Creekside development including a creekside walkway.

#5 - A transportation center for rapid bus service to/from BART and Airports

#6 - Residential over Retail as luxury downtown living.
