Our Town
the Dan River Region
See the Dan River Region in a new light

One of the great privileges of serving as mayor is that I have the opportunity to tell the story of Danville and the Dan River Region. Our story is one of incredible opportunities and boundless potential.

We have some real partners in making all of this happen. They include Pittsylvania County and our other neighboring jurisdictions, as well as numerous local, regional, state and national agencies and organizations.

Together, we are working hard to provide our city with opportunities to thrive. Together, we are making our city a welcoming place that embraces inclusion and diversity. Together, we are building a stronger Danville and region.
