[ARCHIVED] City Council approves three-story hotel

Council Chambers

Danville City Council voted Tuesday night to approve a rezoning request that will allow a hotel with a conference center and restaurant to be built on South Main Street and Fulton Heights. The property was rezoned from Old Town Residential to Conditional Highway Retail Commercial.

WBTM reports that developers will announce later the national chain that plans to build the $4.5 million project. Developers say the conference room and restaurant would be used primarily by hotel guests -- not the general public. They plan to hire 13-to-16 full-time workers to staff the hotel.

Neighbors said traffic was their biggest concern, but City Planning Director Ken Gillie says that shouldn’t be a problem.

Michael Scarce, speaking Tuesday night on behalf of the landowners, said the hotel would be ideal for Goodyear and Danville Community College clients who need a place to stay for a couple of days.

In other action, City Council voted to:

• Amend the budget to accept a Virginia Commission for the Arts Grant in the amount of $5,000 and local share of $5,000.
• Amend the budget to provide for additional Federal and State Mass Transit Operating Funding - service improvements for seniors and persons with disabilities in the amount of $153,859.
•Amend the budget for State Department of Aviation Maintenance Grant Funds in the amount of $202,933.
•Amend the budget for project funds from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development in the amount of $1,284,688.
•Amend the budget for Federal and State Transit Funding for Danville Transit System in the amount of $1,325,000.
•Amend the budget to appropriate Comprehensive Services Act Funds and provide local matching funds in the amount of $4,692,432.
