COUNCIL ACTION
Business Meeting:     03/05/2019
SUMMARY
A request has been filed for a Special Use Permit for a public use in accordance with Article 3.E, Section C, Item 15 of the Code of the City of Danville, Virginia 1986, as amended at 524 Chatham Avenue, otherwise known as Grid 1610, Block 008, Parcel 000014, of the City of Danville, Virginia Zoning District Map.  The applicant is proposing to construct a community building with a commercial kitchen, computer lab, and exercise room.
BACKGROUND
An application has been filed by Gary M. Wasson on behalf of the Danville Redevelopment and Housing Authority (DRHA), requesting a Special Use Permit for a public use in accordance with Article 3.E, Section C, Item 15 of the Code of the City of Danville, Virginia 1986, as amended at 524 Chatham Avenue, otherwise known as Grid 1610, Block 008, Parcel 000014, of the City of Danville, Virginia Zoning District Map.
 
The applicant is proposing to have a community facility with a commercial kitchen, computer lab, and exercise room.  This use is considered a public use because the community facility, if approved, will be operated by DRHA, which Mr. Wasson represents. Construction will still need approval of any necessary building permits.
 
Currently, the site contains one residential structure which has been vacant for several years.  In 2018, the property was consolidated with an adjacent vacant property (formerly Property ID# 22414).  However, this recent consolidation does not yet appear in the City’s maps. The consolidation provides additional space for the development of a community facility as proposed and shown on the applicant’s application.

At their meeting of February 11, 2019, the Planning Commission voted 6-0 (Commissioner Jones absent) for recommended approval of Special Use Permit application PLSUP20190000022, filed by Gary M. Wasson, requesting a Special Use Permit for a public use in accordance with Article 3.E, Section C, Item 15 of the Code of the City of Danville, Virginia 1986, as amended at 524 Chatham Avenue, otherwise known as Grid 1610, Block 008, Parcel 000014, of the City of Danville, Virginia Zoning District Map subject to the following conditions:

 
1.          Any scheduled events shall be limited to occur between 6 am and 10 pm, Sunday through Thursday, and 6 am and 11 pm Friday and Saturday.
 
2. The community facility shall be primarily managed and owned by a government agency, unless any change in management or ownership complies with zoning regulations, which are current at the time of the change, for public uses compared to private community facilities.
RECOMMENDATION
It is recommended that City Council adopt an Ordinance granting a Special Use Permit for a public use in accordance with Article 3.E, Section C, Item 15 of the Code of the City of Danville, Virginia 1986, as amended at 524 Chatham Avenue, otherwise known as Grid 1610, Block 008, Parcel 000014, of the City of Danville, Virginia Zoning District Map subject to the following conditions:

 
1.          Any scheduled events shall be limited to occur between 6am and 10 pm Sunday through Thursday, and 6am and 11 pm Friday and Saturday.
 
2, The community facility shall be primarily managed and owned by a government agency, unless any change in management or ownership complies with zoning regulations, which are current at the time of the change, for public uses compared to private community facilities.
