Did anyone see this week’s episode of Fox’s hit TV show Alcatraz – the one called Sonny Burnett?
I ask because the setting for the show’s characters, toward the end of this episode, was “Danville.” And I found it really interesting that the interpretation of Danville, that the show depicted, was of a rural, agricultural town with grassy fields and hills as far as the camera could capture.
Certainly the Danville town motto is “small town atmosphere, outstanding quality of life.” But it is clear from the TV show that this also translates to an outsider’s perception of Danville as a rural town.
One of the reasons why I personally moved to Danville was because the countryside reminded me of England – where I grew up.
So I can’t help but think what a shame it would be if our town allows developers, including SummerHill Homes with its Magee Ranch proposal, to take away the last remaining undeveloped rural areas of Danville. And, if the town council approves the SummerHill development, where will it stop? Won’t we be setting precedence for other developers?
Well that is my final musing for this week. Look out for more blogs related to Save Our Creek and the proposed SummerHill Homes development next week.
