SKATE PARK FEASIBILITY STUDY
In September 2018, the Town Council accepted the Skate Park Feasibility Study, which identified design and operation guidelines, schematic designs and construction cost estimates, should funding be available for a future skate park in Danville. The Study was accepted but a location was not selected for the skate park. Further discussion about a skate park would be brought back if and when other alternative sites are identified. In addition, no funding yet has been appropriated for this potential project.
DIABLO ROAD TRAIL FEASIBILITY STUDY
The Town’s vision to develop a continuous pedestrian and bicycle trail along the Diablo Road corridor is reflected in each of Danville’s key planning documents over the past three decades, tracing back to the Danville 2005 General Plan, adopted in 1987. Any potential trail alignment option would necessitate a dedication of land from the privately-owned Magee property located on the south side of Diablo Road.
A recently submitted development proposal by Davidon Homes, if approved, would enable the Town to secure the dedication of land necessary to implement this trail. The Town retained Alta Planning + Design to study the feasibility of constructing the segment of trail that would be dedicated to the Town. Specifically, Alta was asked to identify viable road and creek crossing locations, trail alignment routes and associated costs as part of the Diablo Road Trail Feasibility Study, completed in August 2018.
