I join Christine KAPLAN in being greatly concerned about the loss of "priceless downtown parking" in front of those small businesses.

I want to once again call Danville Express to task for not giving its readers notice in its Tuesday issue of the Town Council meeting on this very important topic. It told us about a fruit tree project and buying tickets to a film gala but couldn't find the space to let citizens know about a meeting on a topic that has significant impact on our quality of life. When will this publication stop covering bake sales and start giving us important information we need?

Sandy...have you ever heard about the squeaky wheel gets the grease. Well the Danville Express will continue their goody, goody news items, until we all make noise.

The DE...has gone down hill when it comes you writing about important issues.

Thanks, Julia from Alamo

Does the Kaplan family own buildings around this "priceless downtown property"?

Editor: Please don't delete this message as it's a legitimate question.

There was an email that was circulated recently where I happened to receive information about this upcoming meeting.

I agree, this meeting should have been made very public by the "DE". We do rely on this portal since there isn't any other source for information in our town.

It's always nice to see the "feel good" stories and pet adoptions, but as a resident, major building and development issues are a major concern for all of us. We want to keep the integrity of this town intact.
Thank you.

The Express does their best to post events/meetings of importance but they often don't hear about it until hours before. The residents have the ability to notify the Express by utilizing the Submit Information link on the left. I say Kudos to the Danville Express for covering the meeting with such late notice.

As the article states, there will be plenty of opportunities to get involved in this low-income housing plan during the Fall of 2011. Subscribe to your city websit ASAP to get involved.
