Discover Danville Association is a collective group of downtown businesses which seek to improve the economic vibrancy, town centricity and tourism while maintaining the village atmosphere.
We are accomplishing this by working with local government and like focused organizations to drive progressive change in the development of the downtown.
With other East Bay locales spending much time, energy and money on the revitalization of their downtown areas, there is increased competition for the time and attention of residents of the tri-valley area, particularly Danville, Alamo, Diablo, and San Ramon. This competition is pulling our local residents away from Danville's potential as a shopping and recreational destination.
To keep these local residents invested in supporting Danville we must increase awareness of Danville's shopping value, pedestrian safety, recreational viability and appealing charm with East Bay consumers. The vision is an attractive, vibrant downtown lined with flowers, benches and lighted trees, bustling with local residents shopping in the many interesting shops in Danville's charming atmosphere or as our association's slogan suggests "small town charm, sophisticated choices.
"Discover Danville" is a non-profit organization. We have been granted by the Town of Danville business promotion funds for 2006/2007 to help promote and brand the Town of Danville. These funds are earmarked for the following activities and campaigns under the shop, dine and play theme:
Membership in this dynamic association is $60.00 per year and entitles each business to have a voice in shaping the future of Danville.
