Danville, like every community in thirsty-California, should be required to include water allocation in the planning of any NEW construction. In times when residents are being asked/required to cut back on water use, then so should new construction. It’s simple budgeting: there is no net-reduction if new water users are added. They just take up what existing users just “saved”.
Therefore new construction should be required to include *new* water sources, like a desalination plant construction… not just new pipes to an previously existing source.

Equally important is for the Town of Danville to draft plans for a homeless complex preferably in the downtown area along Hartz Avenue.

This in turn would provide convenience to public transportation and retail shopping for the truly needy.

We do not need more housing to accommodate wealthy individuals out of touch with the suffering of others.

@Jennie Pierce
I can appreciate your sentiments but accommodating the homeless population will not fly in a town like Danville.

Concurring....the majority of Danville residents could care less about the plight of the homeless.
