Autumn-on-the-Green Kicks Off New Project in Danville

A crisp sunny autumn day was the perfect setting to kick off our new project to enhance rural character with the Town of Danville. Noelle spoke to over 80 people at the town’s annual Autumn-on-the-Green event in the center of Danville Village. People shared what they loved about the landscape and rural countryside throughout the community. Working with the Planning Commission, Noelle also held five focus groups to gain a better understanding of how residents define “rural character,” to solicit opinions on various planning options for protecting rural character, and to develop an understanding of what residents feel are the key elements of rural character (farms, scenic views, forests, open meadows, etc.) that make Danville a special place. Our Autumn-on-the-Green survey and these focus groups will help the town develop thoughtful and forward-thinking strategies that are transparent, equitable and sustainable ways to enhance rural character and guide growth.
