To some extent, downtown Danville is not dying. Buildings are not alive, and they can only suffer material decay. Far worse is the death of ideas, the idea of citizenship, for example.
A vibrant downtown is, therefore, only the outward sign of something central to our lives. And for something to be central there must be a center, right?
For Danville, this midpoint is at the crossroads of Third and Main. It is, therefore, natural for this intersection to be the site of a public debate over Danville's future.
