Danville Residents Consider Regulatory Tools for Preserving Rural Areas
Danville citizens gathered for their final Community Workshop at the Danville Town Hall on April 5, 2010. After reviewing the town’s current rural zoning and issues raised by community members at previous workshops, the group heard about studies evaluating costs and benefits of various land use planning tools. Participants then examined options for rural planning tools, including conservation development, clustering, overlay districts, fixed area based zoning, siting standards and access management.
The next steps will be to use the results of the workshops and other public input, including an analysis of the April 2010 survey results as the basis for a discussion about options for regulatory and non-regulatory tools. For more information, please find the April 5 presentation on the Danville page of our Community Planning Partnership section.
