Community encouraged to join Housing Workshop Series

Community encouraged to join Housing Workshop Series

  Danville is mandated to plan for at least 2,241 new homes 

As part of an ongoing community engagement plan to seek the community’s input in Danville’s 2022-2030 Housing Element Update, the Town is encouraging more people to join one of a series of virtual community workshops to learn more about Danville’s mandated Housing Element Update and participate in the process. In the 2022-2030 update, the Town is mandated by the State to accommodate a minimum of 2,241 new homes.

The workshops are aimed at helping the community understand exactly what Danville is facing in the State mandated Housing Element Update and to allow residents to ask questions. The first Housing Element workshop was held on June 12. Town staff and housing consultant, Diana Elrod talked about the issues facing Danville and answered questions from participants. The Town is encouraging community participation and input so that the final plan balances the mandate to accommodate growth while preserving Danville’s history and character.

The workshops will each discuss the Regional Housing Needs Assessment (RHNA) process, state law requirements, and the Housing Element policy document that identifies where and how Danville will accommodate existing and projected future housing needs for people of all income groups. 

The next workshop is scheduled for Tuesday, June 29, at 6:00 p.m. Community members can register in advance for this virtual workshop at

https://us02web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_ip5h-glnQvmRoPkmELfXfA or visit the newly launched www.DanvilleTownTalks.org to learn more about the Housing Element Update, sign up for updates, complete surveys, add comments and register for any of the other workshop dates. 

Additional workshops are scheduled for Thursday, July 8, Thursday, August 19, Tuesday, August 31, and Saturday, September 18.
