[ARCHIVED] Danville‘s Housing Workshop Series Continues on September 18

Danville‘s Housing Workshop Series Continues on September 18

Town continues to encourage the community to learn about and 

participate in the Housing Element Update

In its 2023-2031 Housing Element update, Danville is expected to accommodate a minimum of 2,241 new homes. On July 9, 2021, the Town submitted an appeal of its housing assignment to the Association of Bay Area Governments (ABAG).  The Town is expecting to present its case to the ABAG Board on Friday, September 24, 2021

With the appeal process progressing on a parallel route, the Housing Element Update continues locally. The community’s participation is critical because – while the Town’s ability to control the amount of growth has eroded – state law does allow cities to decide where to grow.  Active participation from all members of the Danville community, including those who rent their homes or work in Danville, will provide valuable feedback as the Town plans for expected housing growth and ways to add ways to address local housing needs.

The next community Housing Workshop will be at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, September 18.

Community members can register in advance for this virtual workshop at  

or visit 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. 

The Town held six Housing Workshops between June and August 2021, and Town staff has also visited two community groups to talk about housing in Danville. Community groups are invited to contact Diane Friedmann if you would like the Town to talk about housing at your next meeting. Previous Housing Workshops can also be viewed at
