Skateboards Still Allowed in Danville's River District

Danville, VA -- Skateboards will still be allowed in Danville's River District.

Police Chief Philip Broadfoot proposed to city council to ban skateboards or any wheeled devise from the area. The goal was to prevent property damage to things like the newly-installed railings.

However the issue never came to a vote because the motion was not seconded. Council agreed that they want downtown to be a welcoming place and they can find cheap ways to prevent property damage without putting up signs.
