Danville Press Release
Village Theatre Parking Lot to Open
Ribbon cutting set for January 31
Members of the Danville Town Council will be on hand Thursday, January 31, 2019 to officially open the new Village Theatre Municipal Parking Lot.
Located at 279 Front Street, the Town project expands the Village Theatre Municipal Parking Lot by an additional 131 parking spaces, for a total of 200 spaces. The municipal lot is adjacent to the main downtown business district and provides a public connection between the Danville Library and Community Center and downtown. The ribbon cutting is scheduled for 4:00 p.m.
“The Village Theatre Municipal Parking Lot Expansion Project continues the Town’s efforts to expand the supply of free parking that serves the heart of our downtown” said Town Manager Joe Calabrigo. “This newest lot will provide greater access to our downtown businesses and civic facilities for residents and visitors alike.”
Work on the $9.2 million project began in fall 2018 and included landscaping, lighting, bio-retention facilities, and construction of a pedestrian bridge to Eugene O’Neill Pocket Park. The project is one of several planned projects that will increase the supply of public parking in or near the downtown. The Rose Street Municipal Parking Lot, opened in November 2017, created an additional 78 spaces. A project to expand the Park and Ride Lot at Sycamore Valley Road and I-680 by an additional 115 spaces is in the design stages and will be constructed in 2020, and a School District/Town partnership will result in the construction of 240 additional student parking spaces at San Ramon Valley High School later this year.
