Enhancing Danville’s Downtown Spaces
Danville launches public outreach efforts for its Downtown Plan Update
While so much has changed in the past few years, one thing remained the same in our community - the innate desire to gather in our well-loved public spaces. The Town has begun the process of updating the Downtown Plan and has partnered with urban design firm SWA to reimagine how we might use some of the public spaces within our downtown to provide essential connection, interaction and engagement.
The goal is to create ‘activated’ public spaces that are visually coordinated and balance the need for adequate public parking, drainage facilities, accessibility to all businesses and essential services such as trash pick-up.
The Town is seeking community input through a survey that will focus on how businesses and residents envision improvements to Danville’s treasured downtown spaces. The survey is expected to take about five minutes and will be available from January 7 to February 14. Other intercept events will be held around town and at the Danville Farmers’ Market.
