From: Doug Plachcinski

Business Meeting:     05/04/2021
This request is to amend Chapter 41 entitled “Zoning Ordinance” of the Code of the City of Danville, Virginia, 1986 as amended. Specifically, to add a new article 3.V Casino Entertainment (C-E) District establishing zoning district purpose, permitted uses, uses permitted by special use permit, lot size requirements, bulk regulations, parking, exterior lighting, signs, noise, landscape and open space, and additional requirements.
