A zone change for patio homes on the east end of Danville passed with a vote that split the Danville City Commission and broke its usual voting bloc Monday.
The homes are being developed by Jim and Nancy Davis as part of a 300-acre planned development on the U.S. 150 bypass. The land where the Davises want to build the homes is now zoned for agriculture.
Four conditions passed unanimously by Danville-Boyle County Planning and Zoning Commission were the focus of discussion. Those conditions were:
* A traffic study be completed. The study has been finished, but commissioners weren't given a copy because it would have been considered new evidence, and isn't allowed, by law, to be considered.
* Adjoining property owners Mike and Beth Perros be given access from their house by way of a new road planned for the development.
