Subject:    Consideration of a Special Use Permit at 126 East Thomas Street.
From: Doug Plachcinski

Business Meeting:     05/03/2022

Special Use Permit Application PZ22-45, filed by SOAP SUPPLIES LLC, requests a Special Use Permit for a duplex according to Article 3.E.C.2. of the Danville Zoning Ordinance at 126 East Thomas Street (Parcel ID#03962). The applicant proposes converting the single-family dwelling into a duplex.

The building is not in the North Danville Historic District as shown in the City’s parcel viewer, although it is adjacent.  The sizes of the rooms in the building after renovations exceed minimum requirements under the statewide building code.  The current property is valued at $19,800.  It is three (3) bedrooms and one (1) bath.  The proposed floor plans show single bedrooms with an open floor plan living/dining / kitchen area.  Each room in the building will have light and ingress/egress.  A split entry vestibule will leave one front door with an increased energy efficiency design.
This property suffered a fire about a year ago.  Prior to the fire, our systems show the property was in the housing choice voucher program.  The owner is working through code enforcement violation notices, and they believe this renovation is the best way to reinvest in the property inside and out.  The alternative is likely demolition because a three bedroom one bath configuration will not support the income stream necessary to finance repairs. 

The Planning Commission, at their April 11, 2022, meeting, voted 7-0 to recommend approval of Special Use Permit PZ22-45.
The Planning Commission recommended that City Council approve a Special Use Permit, according to Article 3.E.C.2. of the Danville Zoning Ordinance at 126 East Thomas Street (Parcel ID#03962).
