Isn't this one of the things that Tony A. was fighting for?

I hope the development at Prospect Ave. looks better when finished. Right now, it looks like crap. The buildings go right up to the sidewalk. Why didn’t you guys set it back a little bit? I feel claustrophobic just thinking about it.

And if you want to make Danville look better, get rid of “The Clock Tower” at Diablo and Hartz. It’s that funky brown wood structure that belongs in the 1970’s. It looks homemade. It’s a gob dam disgrace! Make the owner update it for cripes sake! What an eyesore. He should be fined for visual pollution!

I cannot imagine what they could do to dress up that giant carbuncle at Prospect. It should never have been built, period, and the planning commission should never have let it get off the ground. You can put lipstick on a pig, but it is still a pig.

The current project of retail and housing on the old hotel site is too big and overpowers the area. It is out of scale and the planners and council should be ashamed. It is not attractive at all.

The scale of the project is a direct result of the Town's kowtowing to ABAG and forcing the developer to include 12 apartments (I believe that is the number), including 2 low-income units, as part of the project.

That's what happens when a developer of high-density housing (Storer) is the Town's mayor, and an architect wanting to appease the powers that be is his councilman crony (Arnerich). The other 3 council members are along for the ride. And 2 of those same idiots, Storer and Stepper, just got re-elected! The stupidity of the average Danville voter is just appalling. Amazing that they were smart enough to earn the bucks needed to buy a house here.....
