BACKGROUND
A request has been filed by Dana Peters requesting to rezone and obtain a Special Use Permit to allow for a discontinued non-conforming use (commercial kennel) to reused at 215 Ash Street.
 
This property is developed with a structure that was built within Pittsylvania County as a pet kennel.  According to City records, the facility was operated until December 2016, but maintained a business license until December 31, 2017.  The property is zoned OT-R Old Town Residential district, thus the facility was a legal non-conforming use.  City Zoning Code Article 7, Section B Item 3 regulates non-conforming uses.  It reads as follows:
 
3.  Discontinuation of nonconforming use. If a nonconforming use is discontinued or abandoned for a continuous period of more than two (2) years, including any period of discontinuation before the effective date of this ordinance, then that use shall not be renewed or reestablished and any subsequent use of the lot or structure shall conform to the regulations of this ordinance. When any nonconforming use is replaced by a permitted use, the use shall thereafter conform to the regulations for the district, and no nonconforming use shall thereafter be resumed.
 
The applicant has requested to rezone this property to a “Conditional” HR-C district, eliminating all uses except for a commercial kennel.  In order to have a commercial kennel in the HR-C district, a Special Use Permit is also required.The Planning Commission voted 6-0 (Commissioner Petrick absent) to recommend approval of the request subject to the condition that the hours of operation be limited to 7 am – 7 pm Monday through Sunday.
 
RECOMMENDATION
It is recommended that City Council adopt an Ordinance granting a Special Use Permit for a commercial kennel in accordance with Article 3.M, Section C, Item 7 of the Zoning Ordinance of the Code of City of Danville, Virginia 1986, as amended, at 215 Ash Street (Parcel ID# 73005), otherwise known as Grid 1807, Block 003, Parcel ID# 000049, of the City of Danville, Zoning District Map, subject to the condition that the hours of operation be limited to 7 am – 7 pm Monday through Sunday.
