Danville Bike Master Plan

Town Adopts Town-Wide Bicycle Master Plan

On July 6, the Town Council approved Danville’s first-ever Townwide Bicycle Master Plan. Adoption of the Plan concludes a nearly two-year process. That process included an extensive effort to reach out to Danville cyclists of all ages and abilities to identify the programs, policies, and physical improvements that will best serve the community. Through a combination of Zoom meetings, in-person “pop up” meetings, and comments submitted online, the Town received input from a wide variety of cyclists.

The plan identifies:

  • 50 location-specific or spot improvements such as enhanced street crossings along the Iron Horse Trail and additional bicycle video detection at larger intersections.
  • 44 roadway corridor improvements such as adding additional high visibility pavement markings and buffers to existing bike lanes and adding additional bike lanes where possible.

The Plan also calls for the creation of a Bicycle Advisory Committee, to be appointed by the Town Council. This Committee would provide input to the Town Council, the Parks, Recreation and Arts Commission, and Town staff on issues involving bike usage and safety. Recruitment for the Committee will begin later this year, check the Town website www.danville.ca.gov for more details.

The Plan is intended to be a living document, which will be reviewed and updated periodically to meet the needs of the community. If you have questions about the Plan or its contents, please contact the Town’s Transportation Manager, Andrew Dillard, at adillard@danville.ca.gov.

Town of Danville Official FAQs Magee Ranch Development

The Town of Danville FAQs are below or click here to their site

1.What is The Magee Preserve Project?

This is a proposal by Davidon Homes to develop approximately 29 acres (or 7%) of the 410-acre project site with 69 single family homes and seven attached secondary dwelling units (a.k.a. “casitas” or “in-law units”) As shown on the project site plan on the project page, the proposed lots are shown in blue while the remaining 381 acres (shown in white) would be converted to permanent open space.

2.Is it a development on an Open Space Preserve?

No.  The name of the proposed project selected by the developer is The Magee Preserve.  If approved, the project would set aside approximately 93% of the site as permanent open space.  However, at this time the property is privately owned by the Magee family and has development rights based on General Plan and zoning regulations established long before the Town’s incorporation.

3.Where is it located?

As shown on the site plan (on the project page), the property is located on the south side of Diablo Road and Blackhawk Road extending approximately two miles east from the intersection of Diablo Road/Green Valley Road/McCauley Road. Most
