The idea that Mayor John Bowling wants to look at expanding Danville on the south side of town infuriates Jim and Nancy Davis.
They have worked on their development, on the west side of the Danville bypass, for more than a decade. The couple want to present their plan for the property to Danville-Boyle County Planning and Zoning by the end of the year.
Jim Davis rode out into the field behind Davco Steel recently in his Mercedes-Benz, giving a tour of where the shops, offices, movie theater and restaurants will be built.
There is sewerage to the property; the Davises paid for it. The land is zoned highway commercial. The couple have spent $750,000 so far on architects, plans, sewerage and utilities.
