Enhancing Danville’s Downtown Spaces
Outreach survey ends with strong community participation
The Town’s latest public outreach survey closed yesterday, February 14, with nearly 1500 Danville residents, business owners, and visitors offering their opinions and feedback on Danville’s Downtown Master Plan Update. The survey was available between January 7 and February 14, 2022, and sought community input on how businesses and residents envision improvements to Danville’s treasured downtown spaces.
This project aims to reimagine some of the public spaces within the downtown to provide essential connection and engagement while balancing the need for adequate public parking, drainage facilities, accessibility to all businesses, and essential services such as trash pick-up. The Town has partnered with urban design firm SWA, which will now review all the input from the community survey and develop strategies for the Town Council to review. Survey results will be evaluated, and survey findings will be posted on the project website at www.DanvilleTownTalks.org.
“We are thrilled with the number of responses the survey received. We know that the downtown is a treasured place, so it was important for us to get this feedback from the community,” said Jill Bergman, Business and Economic Development Director for the Town. “We want to thank everyone who took part and encourage people to follow the progress of Downtown Master Plan Update on the project website at www.DanvilleTownTalks.org.”
