        Residency Status Clarification

    Residency Status Clarification

    For residents outside the incorporated Town of Danville limits:
    Each quarter, the Town receives a number of questions regarding the residency status for individuals and families wishing to register for Town-sponsored programs and activities. Those living outside the Danville Town limits include residents of the communities of Alamo and Diablo, and the Alamo Creek, Bettencourt Ranch, Blackhawk, Bryan Ranch, Monterosso, Shadow Creek and Whitegate housing developments. In order to verify your residency in Danville, you can:

    1. Look up your street address in the index of the Thomas Bros. Guide; it will state Danville or Contra Costa County for zipcode 94506 or;
    2. Review the information on your property tax bill.
    3. Check your residency status online.

    The program and facility fees cover a large portion of the actual costs, though Town of Danville residents also partially support the classes, events and facilities through their property tax assessments. Because of this, those program participants and individuals reserving Town facilities who live outside of Danville pay an additional non-resident charge. If you have any questions about this information, please call (925) 314-3400.


    Waitlists will be established once a class has reached maximum enrollment. If space becomes available, you will be contacted by phone and/or email.
