What does downtown Danville need?
They need a central location for people to meet where they can get information about the town, restaurants, places to visit, things that are coming up, etc. It would be like a community information center. I've been living in Danville for 40 years, and all of my kids grew up here. I love it here.

We have an office in downtown Danville and would like to see an office supply store here. It would be a lot easier than driving to San Ramon for all of our supplies. We can do it online, but it would be nice to go into a store and support the local businesses.

I play music as a hobby (guitar) and would like to go hear music at a nice upscale bar/restaurant. Some of the old joints here just have their regulars hanging around outside smoking. It seems out of character for a nice town like Danville with so many upscale restaurants and shops.

They need a plaza like a "zocolo" in any town in Mexico where we can all come down and walk around.
My husband and I grew up in the Danville/Alamo area and he likes what they've done in Lafayette, but I prefer Danville. It's hard to say if Danville needs anything because I love it here so much. A specialty bakery, like a cupcake store, would be nice. Or better yet, having all the ruts fixed on the Iron Horse Trail would be good.
