A Land Use Permit (LUP) allows the Town of Danville to consider special uses which may be essential or desirable to a particular community, but which are not allowed as a matter of right within a zoning district, through a public hearing process. A land use permit can provide flexibility within a zoning ordinance.
Each zoning district of the Town's Zoning Ordinance, identifies permitted uses and conditional uses. The purpose of a land use permit is to allow for special consideration of uses which are not principally permitted or prohibited in a designated zoning district. The Town’s Zoning Ordinance cannot be drafted to equitably deal with every circumstance. Therefore, the use permit process is designed to provide the Town sufficient flexibility to determine whether a specific land use on a site will be compatible with its environment, the General Plan, the Zoning Ordinance, and uses on adjacent parcels. In reviewing a use permit application, the Planning Division and/or the Planning Commission will evaluate such items as building placement and size, traffic generation, compatibility of use with adjoining properties and other related development impacts. Condition may be imposed as necessary to insure that the proposed use will be compatible with and not adversely affect the environment and adjacent properties.
