Town continues to provide ways for the community to participate in the mandated Housing Element Update

As part of a continued effort to harness community input in Danville’s mandated 2023-2031 Housing Element Update, the Town’s engagement platform, www.DanvilleTownTalks.org, now includes a forum where community members can join the discussion and provide ideas, comments, and feedback. In the 2023-2031 update, the Town is mandated by the State to accommodate a minimum of 2,241 new homes. Launched in Spring 2021, www.DanvilleTownTalks.org also includes surveys, an ideas board, videos, FAQs, and factsheets.

Outreach efforts in July also include the third in a series of housing workshops aimed at helping the community understand exactly what Danville is facing in the State mandated Housing Element Update, pending state legislation aimed at eliminating single-family zoning and allowing residents to ask questions. With two previous workshops completed, Town staff and will continue to talk about the issues facing Danville and answer questions from participants on Thursday, July 8, at 6:00 p.m. Community members can register in advance for this virtual workshop at https://us02web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_LnRWMEj6RRiZDwBiPmATGA or visit www.DanvilleTownTalks.org. Previous workshops can also be viewed at www.DanvilleTownTalks.org.

The workshops will 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. 

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

In addition, a postage-paid, mail survey will be delivered to Danville addresses in the center pages of the Town’s Summer Live Locally Newsletter. The survey asks residents to comment on which aspects of Danville they would like to see preserved as Danville grows. The survey is also available at www.DanvilleTownTalks.org.

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. 

For additional information, contact Public Information Officer Nicola Shihab at (925) 314-3336 or nshihab@danville.ca.gov.
