Diablo Views: Coming soon near you

Original post made on Nov 9, 2007

Does anyone wish there were a McDonald's in the Trader Joe's location in Danville? That's what her father wanted when he owned the property several decades ago, Marilyn Agenos Dreyfuss told the Danville Area Chamber of Commerce members last week.

Dolores, such great humor, and so subtle,

"I wonder just how many stores and restaurants and offices the town can use, but I trust the developers did demographic studies before launching their projects. And the good news is, we'll still have to drive out to Blackhawk or down to San Ramon for a Big Mac."

I think we ought to meet a Burger King and discuss how your column today captured the humor that is Danville. Ah, but be careful, wordsmith, there is a chance Danville will consider you their Towne Fool.

Great column! I always love reading these columns. It sounds like great plans are coming to Danville. I am excited for the new restaurants, especially the ones coming to the Rose Garden.

Much laughter was created among the Alamo e-chains as our neighborhoods reviewed all the things Danville wants to bring to their community or IMPOSE on Alamo. Since Danville proudly wishes to place the SRV YMCA deep in Alamo neighborhoods, we are planning on returning the favor.

WE are planning a McDonald's to be built inside a Wal-Mart in Danville. Alamo neighborhoods will make this project our #1 goal.

Count on us!

Dear Alamo neighbors,

Alamo neighborhoods have reached out to DAMNville neighborhoods to support our efforts to gain voice and consideration among the DAMNville town council. Certainly, we hope that our El Pintado/La Gonda neighborhoods becomes part of the citizen-led city of Alamo all Alamo Region neighborhoods are planning, but for now we appreciate the support of being an Alamo Region neighborhood.

DAMNville should never be a model for any city or allowed to be an influence in developing the citizen-led government of the city of Alamo. Learn from our mistakes, Alamo, and make sure you get a city that is yours and not control by a handful of council members and their supporters.


Note from Vince: This note was received by the neighborhood forum and is posted as example of the growing issues between Danville neighborhoods and the town government. Repeatedly, Danville neighbors are referring to Danville's town government as DAMNville.

I wish I could get a juicy double cheeseburger with fries <b>locally!</b>

Oh, well. I'll have to stick with the healthy stuff at the Farmer's Market...

Dear MAC Lover,

A McDo in DAMNville? Count on it!

We are negotiating with Wal-Mart as we speak to get A McDo in Waltons, an upscale Wal-Mart, planned for Danville. As Hal noted, on return from Paris, we need a McDo, as the French version, with wine and beer available.

It will be our complete pleasure to complete this immediate project for Downtown Danville.
