Welcome to Danbury, North Carolina!
Town Council Meetings--Town Council meetings are scheduled for the fourth Wednesday of every month. A tentative agenda will normally be posted by the Monday prior to the meeting.
COUNCIL MEETING -- 3/8/16
1. A Special Meeting of the Danbury Town Council was held on Tuesday, March 8, 2016, at the Danbury Library. The purpose of the meeting was to discuss ways to improve pedestrian accessibility to points throughout town. Discussion centered on developing pathways, trails, sidewalks, parking, traffic calming, and other means relevant to connecting one part of town to another, while protecting town character.
As a result of the meeting it was decided to develop a pedestrian master plan. Ultimate outcomes of this plan, once implemented, include 1) improved connectivity and 2) a means of improving personal health.
One of the first tasks will be to hold a couple public input meetings so residents can offer ideas. Residents will receive information in the near future.
The Town Council frequently discusses a concern for pedestrian safety as residents and visitors go about their business on Main Street. While the design of the street is unlikely to change, we can, as motorists, change our behavior. Not only is it dangerous for pedestrians, it has also been common for pets and wildlife to be injured or killed, as well. Everyone is being asked to obey speed limits and to be alert for people and animals crossing the street. Please help us out.
Planning and Zoning Board Meetings--The Planning and Zoning Board meets on an as-needed basis. Meeting dates are advertised in advance.
Recycling in Danbury-- Danbury residents who are currently receiving garbage service are encouraged to take advantage of curbside recycling. This service occurs on an every-other-week basis. The pickup schedule can be found under the "Departments" tab.
Danbury, the county seat of Stokes County, North Carolina, is located approximately 20 miles north of Winston-Salem, NC, on highway NC 8/89. Nestled among the natural beauty of the Dan River and Hanging Rock State Park, Danbury is a great place to visit, live and work. We hope to see you soon!
