The 2020 Design Awards highlight examples of outstanding architectural design in the Town of Danville.  

Nominations were sought in the categories of:

The Design Awards Committee, made up of Design Review Board (DRB) members Mark Belotz, Robert Combs, Afshan Hamid, Lou Palandrani, Chris Trujillo, and Kevin Wong reviewed nominations which were solicited from the public, the Committee members, and Town staff.
