SUMMARY
A request has been filed by National Restaurant Designers requesting a Special Use Permit to allow a waiver of yard requirements in accordance with Article 3.M; Section C, Item 21 of the Code of the City of Danville, Virginia, 1986, as amended at 1041 Piney Forest Road, otherwise known as Grid 1811, Block 004, Parcel 000001 of the City of Danville, Virginia, Zoning District Map.  The applicant is proposing to allow a six (6) foot front yard setback where thirty (30) feet is required.
BACKGROUND
A request has been filed by National Restaurant Designers for a Special Use Permit to allow a waiver of yard requirements in accordance with Article 3.M; Section C, Item 21 of the Code of the City of Danville, Virginia, 1986, as amended at 1041 Piney Forest Road, otherwise known as Grid 1811, Block 004, Parcel 000001 of the City of Danville, Virginia, Zoning District Map.  The applicant is proposing to allow a six (6) foot front yard setback where thirty (30) feet is required.
 
This property is currently developed with a Biscuitville restaurant and accompanying off-street parking spaces.  The applicants plan to remodel the interior of the store, as well as add an addition to the front.  This addition will allow for internal access to bathrooms as well as reconfigure the dining area.  The addition will be approximately 8’10” x 28’3” with an additional 3’6” overhang around the addition.  This will make the setback approximately six (6) foot where thirty (30) feet is required.
 
The new addition will actually reduce the number of seats from 56 to 52 due to the construction of internal bathroom facilities.  This addition will result in the loss of one (1) parking space, but due to the reduction in seating capacity, no issue is created since the existing parking lot has sufficient spaces to meet the seating needs.  This same request was approved in 2015, but the company decided to postpone construction.  The Special Use Permit expired due to lack of activity, so they have reapplied.
 
At their meeting of April 14, 2020, the Planning Commission voted 7-0 to recommend approval of the request subject to the following conditions:
 
1.      The front yard setback shall not be less than six (6) feet along the Ash Street (south) side of the property.
2. The front yard setback shall not be less than twenty (20) feet along the Piney Forest (east) side of the property.
RECOMMENDATION
It is recommended that City Council adopt an Ordinance granting a Special Use Permit to allow a waiver of yard requirements in accordance with Article 3.M; Section C, Item 21 of the Code of the City of Danville, Virginia, 1986, as amended at 1041 Piney Forest Road, otherwise known as Grid 1811, Block 004, Parcel 000001 of the City of Danville, Virginia, Zoning District Map subject to the following conditions: 
 
1.      The front yard setback shall not be less than six (6) feet along the Ash Street (south) side of the property.
2. The front yard setback shall not be less than twenty (20) feet along the Piney Forest (east) side of the property.
