From: Kenneth C. Gillie, Jr.

COUNCIL ACTION
Business Meeting:     09/03/2019
SUMMARY
A request has been filed to amend Chapter 41 entitled “Zoning Ordinance” of the Code of the City of Danville, Virginia 1986, more specifically, Article 3.U entitled “PSC-O Planned Shopping Center Overlay District”, Section M entitled “Sign Regulations,” by adding Item 10 for directory signs. The purpose of the amendment is to address directory signs in the PSC-O District.
BACKGROUND
Coleman Marketplace LLC, the applicant, is requesting to amend the sign regulations for the PSC-O, Planned Shopping Center Overlay District. The applicant wishes to install directory signs in the current PSC-O District.
 
The PSC-O District applies only to the Coleman Marketplace Shopping Center. The Overlay District regulations allow additional flexibility not typically associated with other properties located in the PS-C, Planned Shopping Center Commercial District. This includes slightly different sign standards than the PS-C District. However, these regulations are the same with regard to wall and directory signs. The applicant has worked with staff to draft an amendment to allow additional directory signs in the Overlay District.

At their August 12, 2019 meeting, the Planning Commission voted 6-0 (Commissioner Bolton was absent) to recommend approval of the request.
RECOMMENDATION
It is recommended that City Council adopt an ordinance amending Chapter 41 entitled "Zoning Ordinance", Article 3.U entitled “PSC-O Planned Shopping Center Overlay District”, Section M entitled “Sign Regulations” by adding Item 10 for directory signs
