The last thing Danville needs is more development. If this property cannot remain an orchard, they should turn it into a park.

Jay, an economic lesson should be learned about Contra Costa County and the "Towns" in the San Ramon Valley. Neighborhoods are taxable assets to be developed and PARKS are costs no government wishes to afford.
There is no relationship between the will of neighborhoods and these governments because "taxable assets" defines such neighborhoods. As real estate refers to our neighborhoods as "inventory," our local governments see only taxable assets.
Sadly, if you want a park, you will likely have to raise the money in your community to buy the land and develop such use privately.

Great, just what Danville needs, more development! I also think this land would make for a good park or it could be of those places where you pick fruit or nuts off of trees and then buy it by pound simular to farms in the North Bay and in Brentwood. It could also be made into a retail complex for Danville get some of the business that San Ramon is currently getting because of Danville lacking those businesses such as ethnic food restaurants, a hardware/home improvement store, a grocery store, an office supply store.
