Davis zone change delayed

Danville City Commission delayed a decision Monday on a zone change for 53 acres of land from agriculture to residential. The change has been approved with conditions by Danville-Boyle County Planning and Zoning Commission, but the city questioned whether it could ask developers Jim and Nancy Davis to extend sewerage lines to adjoining property owners.

City attorney Ed Hays said zone changes never used to have conditions, but that it is a growing trend. City commissioners said they want to study the issue.

The Davises intend to build 122 patio homes on the property, which is near the intersection of the bypass and Perryville Road.


Powell allowed to post sign

Danville City Commission has given second reading and final approval to a sign ordinance that will allow the Board of Adjustments to issue car dealer Stuart Powell a permit to post two brand names on one pole. The change is for companies that require co-branding.

Business owners are usually allowed only one sign but would be allowed to post a two-brand sign with a letter from company headquarters that explains it is required.

Powell has told commissioners that he could not have his Ford-Oldsmobile dealership without such a sign.
