Planning & Zoning Department

The Planning and Zoning Department is responsible for all activities concerning the use and development of land within the Town's incorporated limits. In the broadest sense, such activities include subdivision review, zoning administration, and building inspections. 


Subdivision development is regulated by the Danville Subdivision Control Ordinance. Zoning and land use within Town limits is regulated by the Danville Zoning Ordinance.
Building inspections are regulated by the International Building Code and are performed by the Town's Building Inspector who is also responsible for administering the Town's Stormwater Quality Standards.


The Planning Department also coordinates the activities of the Plan Commissionthe Board of Zoning Appeals, and the Design Review Committee. The most common activities performed by the Plan Commission include approving subdivision plats, making recommendations for rezonings, and performing site plan reviews. The BZA's primary responsibility is to hold public hearings and render decisions on requests for variances from the Town's Zoning Ordinance. The Design Review Committee reviews exterior renovation and new construction projects occurring in the Town's Corridor Protection Overlay District.
