With so much happening in Danville, from events to business openings to construction projects, it’s important to have the latest news at your fingertips. The Town of Danville has developed new ways to stay in the know, and has streamlined existing tools to make finding information easier.
Beginning May 1, there will be one convenient account for the Town on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Nextdoor, making it simple to follow one account on your favorite platform. The Town will rename its social media accounts to @DanvilleCAgov, to reflect the Town home page at www.danville.ca.gov. Current followers will not need to take any action to continue to receive updates. Followers of other Danville accounts for recreation, parks, and arts will need to add @DanvilleCAgov for all Town news.
The Town Police Department will maintain its Facebook account, to provide safety information and community updates. To help share information more widely, they will also launch an Instagram account on May 1. Residents can also sign up for Nixle, a text-based platform that sends local alerts from the Danville Police Department directly to your phone or email address.
Also beginning in May, the Town will offer a new email subscription for a monthly newsletter called Live Locally Now. This roundup of events and news will complement the quarterly printed Live Locally newsletter, and offer updates on projects. With busy schedules in mind, the Town will also send occasional breaking news and event updates to subscribers via email, so you never miss a thing.
Make sure you are following the Town @DanvilleCAgov account on all social media platforms, and look for more information on email newsletter subscriptions at www.danville.ca.gov.
