Once the public learns about a development, it is too late to do anything about it. The Town Council will have already decided that the plan's great and the rest is all about going through the required public hearings to allow them to approve. The public's input is nothing but an irritation to them.

Danville needs Council members that will actually listen to the public and keep an open mind until the final decision. Let's vote out Robert Storer and Karen Stepper in November 2014. They are nothing but developer lackeys. In fact, Storer is a developer and builder of high-density housing in Danville. Who is willing to challenge them and really be a representative for Danville residents?

Please vote all incumbents out. They are not listening to us. If we do not act now the Danville we love will be just a memory. The last thing we should want is to end up like San Ramon. They sold their soul to the developers (Shappel), and now it's too late. Please don't just talk the talk, let's show the town council we do have power at the voting booth!

Yes, I agree!! If you don't vote the incumbents and developers out, you get what you deserve.

Totally agree....I cannot believe someone in their right mind would have approved Fort Ugly they are building right now on San Ramon Valley BLVD. This is exactly what we don't want in Danville, if we wanted a stacked cement city we would be in Dublin or Windemere.

I looked up the plans and they were a bit hard to discern. Someone provide a sketch or something of what these will look like. Those plans disclosed seem purposefully deceptive, hard to interpret.
