DANVILLE -- At the end of a Tuesday night Town Council meeting, the council directed its staff to make changes to the draft Danville 2030 General Plan prior to the next meeting, to be held March 19.

The changes they requested:

-- Removal of language related to the Priority Development Area.

-- Removal of language related to the Association of Bay Area Governments and the Sustainable Communities Strategy from the Draft General Plan and Draft Sustainability Action Plan.

-- Retain the minimum 9.6 acres necessary to meet the Regional Housing Needs Allocation shortfall, as determined by ABAG .

-- Retention of the current 2010 General Plan definition of "agriculture" with language to describe how Measure S is implemented, deletion of a text box describing Measure S and incorporate the full language of Measure S as a part of the 2030 Plan.

-- Simplify the language in the draft Sustainability Action Plan and emphasize the voluntary nature of the plan.

Once the documents are updated with the current information, they will be uploaded to www.danvillegeneralplan.com.
