This is a way for the town council to justify cutting down more trees in our town ... just wait and see. They will not be happy until they have stripped away all of the greenery and made everything concrete and asphalt.

The mere concept of another "General Plan" to replace the present "General PLan" that was supposed to last 20 years is frightening!

I try not to go downtown anymore because it makes me sick to see that so many people thought it was a good idea to cut those beautiful trees down!!! It's not a coincidence that the town council took Redwoods off the No cut list just in time to make changes to the Vet. Bldg!! It changed the whole look on Harte and Prospect. I'm worried what else the Town Council will come up with in regards to the future of Danville!

What does "sphere of influence" on the east side mean! Watch out! I can hear the chainsaws reeving up now.

haven't had time to read the plan that was written in 1999? What the?
And a year to write a new one? What are these guys doing, anyways?
Vote them all out when it comes time! Get someone in there who can do the job, for everyone's sake.

I agree with every comment about the trees, and fear about the general plan being changed yet again. The major changes residents should have concern about are going to be happening on the east side of the freeway.
There is a bill that was passed by the State requiring low and low-low cost housing be built. If you can wade through the rhetoric of the current General Plan, much of it is contained therein.
There was a meeting of the Town and Planning Councils last Monday night. I was there. I could count the number of other Danville residents in attendance on both hands, with a few digits to spare.
I know how busy we all are. But, please, don't wait to be "victims" again. Try to get involved. Send a representative from your neighborhood, if you cannot personally attend.
Get involoved and let your voice be heard BEFORE things happen.
By the way, I am also telling MYSELF these same things. Monday night was the first time I attended a Council Meeting in over ten years!
