COUNCIL ACTION
Business Meeting:     06/04/2019
SUMMARY
A request has been filed by John Grothe requesting to rezone from N-C Neighborhood Commercial to “Conditional” CB-C Central Business Commercial, 750 Main Street, otherwise known as Grid 1716, Block 006, Parcel 000035 of the City of Danville, Virginia Zoning District Map. The applicant is proposing to rezone to reuse an existing building for a restaurant, commercial kitchen, and indoor recreational space.
BACKGROUND
An application has been filed by John Grothe, requesting to rezone 750 Main Street from N-C, Neighborhood Commercial District to CB-C, Central Business Commercial District. This request is also accompanied by a Special Use Permit request to allow indoor recreation. The applicant wishes to operate a restaurant, provide commercial kitchen space for use by local businesses, and provide an indoor axe-throwing establishment.  At some point in the future, the applicant has also indicated a desire to convert part of the building into residential units.
 
The current N-C District does not permit any of the proposed uses by right.  However, the N-C District does permit most of these uses by Special Use Permit. The only non-permitted use is the potential residential units, which is not currently being discussed. In the proposed CB-C District, the restaurant, commercial kitchen, and possible residential units are permitted by right. However, a Special Use Permit is still required for any indoor-recreation. The proposed zoning district better reflects the proposed uses of property.

At their meeting of May 13, 2019, the Planning Commission voted 6-0 (Commissioner Garrison absent) to recommend approval of the request with the proffers by the applicant.
RECOMMENDATION
It is recommended that City Council adopt an Ordinance rezoning from N-C Neighborhood Commercial to “Conditional” CB-C Central Business Commercial, 750 Main Street, otherwise known as Grid 1716, Block 006, Parcel 000035 of the City of Danville, Virginia Zoning District Map.
