West Main Street Corridor Overlay

Code Amendment Request PZ23-00109 would create a West Main Street Corridor Overlay (WMCO) that would stretch from the North Carolina/Virginia border along West Main Street, north to its termination at the intersection of Rison Street to the east and Broad Street to the west. The Corridor includes each property along West Main Street with at least one property line adjacent to West Main Street.

An Overlay is used to apply area-specific standards and/or conditions to a defined geographic location regardless of the underlying base zoning district. Overlay zones are designed to assist in the implementation of specific community goals. In this case, the WMCO will be implemented to enhance the Corridor and protect property owners.

The Danville City Planning Commission scheduled this request for a public hearing on Monday, May 8, 2023 AT 3:00 P.M. in the 4th Floor City Council Chambers of City Hall. Anyone may attend this public hearing to express opinions regarding the proposal. The Commission will vote on a recommendation to the City Council. The City Council will hold another meeting before making a final decision on the request.

The Planning Commission agenda is available on the City’s website, www.danville-va.gov a week before the meeting. Public meetings are televised on River City TV. If we may further assist you, please contact Renee Burton Director of Planning & Zoning by email.
