Covid-19

If you are at higher risk for serious illness from COVID-19 because of your age or because you have a serious long-term health problem, it is extra important for you to take action to reduce your risk of getting sick with the disease. The best way to protect yourself and others is to use many safety tools, such as getting vaccinated and boosted, wearing a mask indoors and avoiding places where COVID-19 spreads more easily.  For more information, please visit the Contra Costa Health Services Website.

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 zip code 94506
  2. Review the information on your property tax bill
  3. Check your residency status online

FEES

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.
