A facelift for downtown Danville

The look and feel of downtown is about to change. Last week, I heard the architects and landowners involved in the remodeling detail that their goal is to construct period architecture. In layman's terms, this means they want the new buildings to look like they have popped up individually over the course of a hundred years or so.
The idea is to keep the character of downtown the same, but to draw in more pedestrian traffic for shopping.
Do the people of Danville share the same vision? As the physicality of the town evolves, what should stay the same and what should be altered?
