After passing new village zoning regulations in December, Danville is now considering how best to maintain its rural character. The Planning Commission will begin by inviting public comment on what rural character means to them and how best to maintain this character and support appropriate development. This continues the conversation that kicked off at the town’s annual Autumn-on-the-Green. Danville residents will talk about the challenges to keeping strong local farms, open lands for recreation, affordable housing opportunities, and beautiful views at Monday Public Meetings on February 15, March 8 and April 5, 2010.
After a short break, Burke has resumed its long-term overhaul of land use regulation by taking up the question of commercial and industrial development standards and districts. Other priorities to be reviewed are rural development and protection, and updating the Burke town plan.
