Getting to know Danville - The Neighborhoods

Real Estate Agent with Tucker Associates Real Estate Services Broker, CalBRE 01165309

Danville's Sycamore ParkThe next phase of “Life in Danville” is upon us. After two and a half years of planning the Danville 2030 General Plan has been adopted and “Expresses the visions and goals of the Danville Citizens for the future of our community”.

I moved to Danville from Colorado with my family in 1974. It was a sleepy little town then and even as it has grown many have strived to keep that “small town” feel. My memories of watching the town expand run deep. I attended Montair Elementary, Charlotte Wood Middle School, San Ramon Valley Christian Academy and graduated from San Ramon Valley High. The future of Danville will more than likely not focus on new development further and further from the town center but instead take advantage of the infill opportunities which arise.

With this new 2030 General Plan in place I thought it was a good opportunity to highlight the areas and neighborhoods which comprise the “24 Planning Subareas” of Danville. From the 1950’s to present many great neighborhoods have been developed. Each with their own flavor and character.

Over the next few weeks I’ll take a look and provide information and insights on each of these areas:.


1. El Pintado

2. El Cerro

3. Green Valley Road

4. Diablo Road

5. Sycamore North and South

6. Diablo Road/Blackhawk Road

7. Sycamore Valley

8. Tassajara Ranch

9. Bettencourt Ranch/Shadow Creek

10. Lawrence Road

11. Alamo Creek, Wendt Ranch and Monterosso

12. Upper Tassajara Valley

13. Greenbrook/Danville South

14. Crow Canyon Country Club

15. Fostoria Way

16. Danville Ranch/California Chateau

17. San Ramon Valley Boulevard

18. Town & Country

19. Las Trampas Hills

20. Del Amigo

21. Danville Boulevard

22. La Gonda/West El Pintado

23. Downtown Danville

24. Alamo Springs

Doug, this localism post draws you right in...the way you blended your own story with the history of Danville, the changes and the positives that come with change (which not everyone readily embraces!)...this is the kind of post that I hope you will do more often, it was wonderful.

Kathleen - Hopefully not much and the majority of residents are very much in favor of retaining open space and the Town's original character. The population is currently estimated at 93% of what we will see in 2030.
