Business Meeting:     05/07/2020
SUMMARY
A request has been filed by Shazad Tahseen on behalf of AANT INC, requesting a Special Use Permit for commercial recreation (indoor) in accordance with Article 3.M, Section C, Item 4 of the Zoning Ordinance of the Code of the City of Danville, Virginia 1986, as amended at 2980 West Main Street, otherwise known as Grid 0617, Block 007, Parcel 0000015 of the City of Danville, Virginia Zoning District Map. The applicant is proposing to have indoor gaming.
BACKGROUND
General guidelines for recreational facilities include parking requirements, hours of operation, and other standards to ensure a safe environment. When a business offers the chance to earn money from gaming activities, there are additional safety concerns.  Both the House and Senate voted to outlaw these types of games

At their meeting of April 14 the Planning Commission voted 7-0 to recommend denial of the request.
RECOMMENDATION
It is recommended that City Council adopt a Resolution denying Special Use Permit Application PLSUP202000004, filed by Shazad Tahseen on behalf of AANT INC, requesting a Special Use Permit for commercial recreation (indoor) in accordance with Article 3.M, Section C, Item 4 of the Zoning Ordinance of the Code of City of Danville, Virginia 1986, as amended at 2980 W. Main Street, otherwise known as Grid 0617, Block 007, Parcel 0000015 of the City of Danville, Virginia Zoning District Map.
