As a native of Danville and resident of Duncan Hill, I am very concerned about the sale of land that was designated for the expansion of Hilldale Cemetery. Most black residents of Danville have family and friends buried on Duncan Hill and would like to see this cemetery continue as long as possible. But if you are not from Danville and your family and friends are buried in your hometown, the sale of the land would not bother you as much.
As for this unknown developer, why won't he come to the front and meet with the residents of Duncan Hill, give us the name of his company and let us see some of the work he has done in the past?
I have not seen or signed a petition. I would advise anyone to know what you are signing before you put your name on one. We have already seen about all of our black heritage signed and sold away. Is Hilldale Cemetery land next? Let's not operate behind closed doors and in secret. I say, "Let the real developer stand."
