Mr. Cauchon presented a proposal to Council asking them to consider forming a taskforce/committee on exploring the safety issues associated with walking in the Village. He suggested working with the School Board. Mr. Cauchon also passed out surveys he sent out and received back in regards to safety/walking in the Village. Mr. Cauchon stated that the school district estimated growth for the past couple years and one year they estimated 31% growth, and the next year 41% growth. He stated that these are not realistic since the district did not increase in size this much. Mr. Cauchon questions if a new school with the proposed size is really needed.

 

Sherry Gardner, 216 West Elm Street, stated that she applauds the efforts for ‘Walk To School Day,’ but she questions how much money should be put into it because it is something that ought to be discussed further with the School Board. She stated that the School Board does not enforce a mile radius rule stating children should walk to school if they live within one mile.

Mrs. Gardner stated that she would like Council to be aware of a situation concerning the alley off of Mulberry and Cherry Street. She stated that she recently contacted the police department about a contractor’s truck being parked in the alley. She stated that someone outside of Granville who doesn’t pay Granville taxes purchased the home and plans to flip it. She stated that she was told that the police could not do anything because the contractor has spoken with the neighbors and Terry Hopkins to get approval. Mrs. Gardner stated that she felt she was treated offensively by the police department. She stated that blocking the alley is dangerous for many reasons and she knows that several elderly people have been blocked when trying to get through. Mayor Hartfield stated that there was a discussion before the Council meeting about this situation and she asked Manager Holycross to give an update. Manager Holycross stated that the contractor originally asked the Service Director (Terry Hopkins) to park the vehicle in the alley for one week. He stated that he is now asking for two more days. Manager Holycross went on to say that this is typically not allowed and this is an exceptional circumstance.

 

Sharon Sellito, 215 South Cherry Street, stated that she phoned the police as well about this situation and also feels she was treated badly. She stated that no one from the police department called her back. She stated that the contractor working on the home does have a driveway to park in. Ms. Sellito stated that about two weeks back the contractor truck was parked in the alley with both doors left open. She stated that she knows of an elderly lady living near the alley that has visitors regularly and they couldn’t get by the truck. Ms. Sellito stated she also witnessed an older man forced to back out onto Cherry Street due to the truck being parked in the alley. Ms. Sellito stated that she had a male friend contact the police department and something was done about the situation. Ms. Sellito stated that she pays over $10,000 in taxes in Granville and she refuses to be treated like this. Ms. Sellito stated that Mrs. Titley who owns the Boxwood Apartments is also aware of the situation and one of her tenants experienced a threatening conversation with the contractor. Ms. Sellito provided photos to Council.

Manager Holycross indicated that he will take care of the situation.

 

Ms. Sellito stated that she has contacted Village Planner, Chris Strayer about parking issues on South Prospect Street. She stated that since the construction with the library there have been workmen parking on this street.

 

Dr. Karen Berdan, 205 ½ South Prospect Street, stated that she owns a business (Granville Vision Center) and parking in this area has always been a problem. She stated that it is now worse and she believes it is due to the construction at the library. Dr. Berdan stated that she does have elderly patients that visit her office and one recently told her that the parking problem may force her to go elsewhere. Dr. Berdan stated she would like to see some remedy to the problem – perhaps two hour parking signs.

Tym Tyler, 205 South Prospect Street, stated that he has a business and lives at this address. He stated that he has had conversations with Chris Strayer about this problem and he thought Mr. Strayer contacted Mike Frazier who is head of the Library Board. Mr. Tyler stated that it was his understanding that the employees of the contractor were told to park at the Maintenance Building or the Waste Water Treatment Facility and he thought this was negotiated in the contract. Mr. Tyler questioned if some of the parking problems is also related to the post office and their workers.

Manager Holycross stated that Mike Frazier indicated he would have a conversation with the contractor and he was frustrated to hear nothing has changed.

 

Councilmember Barsky asked why the Village isn’t ticketing these cars. Mr. Tyler stated that he heard the Village doesn’t have the authority to ticket them. Ms. Sellito, Mr. Tyler, and Council discussed the repercussions of putting 2 hour parking signs up and how this might cause cars to park further down the street. They also discussed the possibility of permanent parking permits.

 

Steve Huddle, 211 South Prospect Street, stated that he has only been before Council twice and once was due to an enormous garage that was built that wasn’t approved by Council and the second was for a variance at 205 South Prospect for business use. He stated that he was not in support of this because there is not enough parking as it is now. Mr. Huddle stated that this problem is worse now than ever. Mr. Huddle stated that he finds it ironic that the most upset people in this situation are the postal workers and business owners and not the residential home owners. Mr. Huddle stated that two hour parking in the downtown area keeps people moving. He added that he has lived in his home on South Prospect for sever years and he has dealt with this problem long enough.

CITIZENS COMMENTS (7:34 pm)

(7:34 pm)Dennis Cauchon, 327 East Broadway, inquired about the Proclamation for Walk To School Day. Manager Holycross stated that he will have it prepared. Mayor Hartfield stated that she plans to attend on October 4th at 8:30am for Walk To School Day and she will bring the Proclamation with her.

 

Mr. Cauchon spoke about pedestrian safety. He stated that the Elementary School recently banned riding bicycles to school for safety reasons. He went on to say that there have been three bike accidents within the Village in the past month. Mr. Cauchon stated that these are warnings signs that there is a problem. He stated that he prepared and distributed a survey to neighbors (mainly in the vicinity of the Elementary School) in regards to pedestrian safety. He stated that he would be willing to distribute copies of the survey and results to Council. Mr. Cauchon stated that he has researched various studies about pedestrian safety and found that many larger communities have master plans when it comes to pedestrian safety. He suggested preparing a Pedestrian and Biking Master Plan for the Village of Granville. He said more information can be found about a Pedestrian Master Plan by using the internet - Google.com. Councilmember O’Keefe suggested that Mr. Cauchon might want to attend the meetings for the Comprehensive Plan. Mr. Cauchon stated that he is aware of these meetings, but his initial thoughts are that the interests of the Village aren’t consistent with those living in Park Trails or elsewhere in Granville. Councilmember Mershon also suggested meeting with the Comprehensive Plan Steering Committee and/or Manager Holycross and Chris Strayer. Mr. Cauchon stated that the proposed new school should have a traffic study done before anything is built and he went on to say that this is really a separate issue from what he is here to speak about. Mr. Cauchon said that the Elementary School tries to control morning traffic with their plan of having pedestrians enter the school on Granger Street - having drop offs on Spellman Street – and busses entering on Sunrise Street. Council discussed speeding and traffic congestion during the early morning school hours. Councilmember Tegtmeyer asked if Mr. Cauchon encountered any studies that included behavioral modification. Mr. Cauchon did not acknowledge that any of the material he reviewed included behavior modification. Mr. Cauchon stated that it is important to tell people that they are endangering themselves by not using buses and you are 25% more likely to get into an accident if you are driven to school. Mayor Hartfield stated that she would be interested in seeing the survey results and she encouraged Mr. Cauchon to further communicate with the Village staff. Councilmember O’Keefe asked Manager Holycross if we can get public participation in the survey created by Mr. Cauchon. She wondered if information about the survey could be put in the newspaper and/or available in the Village office. Manager Holycross indicated that he would be in contact with Mr. Cauchon about getting a copy of the survey. She added that Mr. Cauchon is right about traffic at the newly proposed school location – she said traffic will worsen. Vice Mayor Herman stated that the Village has a copy of the Walkability Study (done by a Denison student a couple years back) and they did implement some of the suggestions in the study. He stated that there is no magic bullet to fix everything regarding pedestrian safety, and Mr. Cauchon’s timing is good to work with the Comprehensive Plan Committee and he encourages him to work with Council and staff. Mr. Cauchon stated that he would be interested in looking at the Walkability Study.

 

Eleanor Cullen, 331 East Broadway, asked about the school drop off rules on Granger, Sunrise, and Spellman. She asked if the police are enforcing these rules. She stated that she never sees the police in the early morning hours and perhaps if their presence was increased it would help alleviate the speeding problems at this hour. She added that Granville has these kind of problems because of the large amount of traffic.

Gloria Hoover, 213 East College Street, stated that she received a copy of the survey distributed by Mr. Cauchon. She stated that there is a pedestrian problem in core Granville. Ms. Hoover mentioned property located at 209/211 East College Street that was purchased by a bank and now they want to tear down the home and make a parking lot. She stated that this will add to pedestrian problems. Ms. Hoover stated that the home they want to tear down was built around 1905.

PUBLIC HEARING

Ordinance No. 10-06, An Ordinance To Amend Chapter 909 Of The Codified Ordinances Of Granville, Ohio, Establishing Policies, Procedures And Regulations For The Maintenance, Care, And Removal Of Trees Within The Public Right of Way.

Jim Siegel, 538 Mt. Parnassus Drive, stated that he is the Chairman of the Tree and Landscape Committee. Mr. Siegel stated that the committee welcomes the changes set forth in the Ordinance. He stated that he did have one concern on page four of the Ordinance regarding contacting the ‘Zoning Inspector.’ He stated that in years past the Tree and Landscape Committee would have been the first notified of any problems/concerns with the contractor. Councilmember Mershon stated that when the Tree and Landscape Ordinances were reviewed by legal counsel they advised having the Zoning Officer consult with the Tree and Landscape Committee. He stated that this was changed for enforceability reasons. Mr. Siegel stated that the Zoning Officer would be unaware of bids or various tree types/conditions. Councilmember Mershon stated that they still intended to have the Zoning Officer consult with members of the Tree and Landscape Committee because he/she might need further clarification. Vice Mayor Herman suggested inserting language into the Ordinance emphasizing that the Zoning Officer should work in collaboration with the Tree and Landscape Committee. Law Director Crites stated that one reason for bringing in the Zoning Officer is because the Tree and Landscape Committee can only take action as an entire commission and they would need to hold a public meeting. Councilmember Mershon later clarified that the Zoning Officer would be staff member, Chris Strayer.

Leslie McLaughlin, 156 Wildwood Drive, stated that she feels we need to protect trees much like we protect zoning of homes and restoration of homes. She stated that if someone feels a tree needs to be removed it deserves scrutiny and a second look. Mayor Hartfield asked Ms. McLaughlin if she was comfortable with Ordinance No. 10-06. She stated fairly so.

Eleanor Cullen, 331 East Broadway, inquired on how the maintenance of trees is decided. Mayor Hartfield stated that there is a systematic approach to tree trimming. Ms. Cullen stated that when she notices a tree needing trimmed she calls the Village and they sometimes take a long time showing up. She stated that people in the Village should be aware that they can call the Service Department to have trees (that are the responsibility of the Village) trimmed. Ms. Cullen stated that she is aware that there was a lot of controversy over the big tree next to the Denison Townhouse that was removed. She stated that a limb from this tree fell and hit a car and this could have been a dangerous situation. She stated that she is not sure if this tree should or shouldn’t have been removed. Mayor Hartfield thanked Ms. Cullen for her comments and she stated that the decision to remove trees is handled by the Tree and Landscape Committee. She went on to say that she feels they do an outstanding job. Ms. Cullen stated that the Village also needs to consider planting the appropriate kind of trees. Vice Mayor Herman stated that the Ordinance gives explicit criteria/factors of when a tree should be removed and there is now to be dialogue with an adjacent property owner whenever a new tree is planted so they can play a part in choosing the tree.

CITIZENS COMMENTS (7:33 pm)

(7:33 pm)Dennis Cauchan, 327 Broadway, spoke in regards to ‘Walk to School Day.’ He stated that over 3500 schools will participate on October 4th of this year. Mr. Cauchan invited Mayor Hartfield to be a part of the walk. He stated that they will meet at the Granville Library. Mr. Cauchan stated that he has examples of various proclamations (which he provided to Ms. Roberts) and he asked Council to prepare a proclamation at their next Council meeting. Mr. Cauchan stated that he hopes this will become an annual event. Mayor Hartfield later stated that Council and Village staff will work on preparing a proclamation.

Mr. Cauchan also spoke to Council about plowing sidewalks. He stated that currently it is the responsibility of homeowners and business owners to shovel their portions of the sidewalks. He explained that for various reasons this doesn’t always happen. Mr. Cauchan stated that other communities (some in Ohio) plow their sidewalks and he would like to see this happen in Granville. Councilmember O’Keefe asked if the Village owns a bobcat to do this. Ms. Roberts stated that the Village does own a bobcat. Mr. Cauchan asked Council if they would be willing to consider having the sidewalks plowed. Councilmember Barsky and Councilmember McGowan both explained that the matter would need to be further discussed and the likely committee to look into this matter would be the LSSU Committee. Mayor Hartfield stated that the next meeting date has not yet been set, and if Mr. Cauchan were to sign up on the website he could receive email notifications of meeting dates and topics of discussion. Mr. Cauchan stated that he would be willing to attend the next LSSU committee meeting to further discuss this matter. Mr. Cauchan stated that the police are at the schools when children are dropped off. He stated that for safety reasons he feels the police should stay at the schools until school begins and not leave when the buses leave.

 

Mr. Cauchan told Council that he feels signs are needed near Wildwood Park stating what all is available in the back sections, such as Turtle Pond. He stated that he feels these areas would be utilized more with user friendly signage. He stated that the cost would be minimal.

 

Mr. Cauchan stated that Sugarloaf Park off of Broadway is rarely used. He stated that he has plans for next summer to expand the use of the park with various children’s activities. He stated that he may ask the Village to help by putting up a stand of some sort to hold stickers children could take once climbing to the top. Mayor Hartfield encouraged Mr. Cauchan to be in touch with Ben Barton who also has an interest in revitalizing this area. Councilmember McGowan suggested that Mr. Cauchan may want to coordinate some children’s activities with the Rec Commission.

 

Sharon Sellito, 215 S. Cherry St., stated that she believes people should be responsible to shovel their own sidewalks and this shouldn’t be a cost to the Village.

, 215 S. Cherry St., stated that she believes people should be responsible to shovel their own sidewalks and this shouldn’t be a cost to the Village.

 

Ms. Sellito asked if the Bryn Du Art show brings in revenue for the Village. Ms. Roberts stated that there is a $20.00 entry fee to cover various costs but the Village does not benefit from the funds. Ms. Sellito asked if there was any money left from last year. Ms. Roberts explained that all proceeds from last year went to the Bicentennial Commission. Ms. Sellito asked if activities at Bryn Du are making any money. Ms. Roberts stated that they are covering costs at this time.

 

Amy Stahl, 143 Brennan Drive, spoke to Council about her concerns over parking at the Bryn Du property, Jones Road, and her neighborhood. Ms. Stahl stated that she has attended meetings with members of the Bryn Du Commission about this matter. She stated that there was an entry gate installed on the east side of the property (for liability reasons) but not on the west side of the property and she asked why there is not one on the west side. Ms. Stahl mentioned various safety issues she is concerned about such as double parking on her street, strollers crossing Jones Rd., and crossing Newark-Granville Rd. Ms. Stahl stated that during a recent polo match people were parking on the front lawn of the Bryn Du property. She asked why people can’t park there for various other activities when the Bryn Du lot is full. Ms. Stahl stated that they have contacted the police and they have been told that they cannot stop people from parking on their street and they suggest placing ‘No Parking’ signs. She went on to say that the parking issues are a result of there not being adequate parking on the Bryn Du property. Ms. Stahl stated that parking on these roads is a safety hazard and it’s just a matter of time before something bad happens. She suggested opening the front gate as they do for polo or installing a gate on the west side of the property because there is access to the front field via sidewalks on this side. Ms. Stahl explained that she would hate to see the parking problems in her neighborhood become a problem to homeowners at The Colony because they too would complain. Ms. Stahl ended by stating that she encourages Council to find a solution. Ms. Stahl later clarified that she did not want to give the impression that she felt the Bryn Du Commission was encouraging people to park in her neighborhood.

 

Kristen McGonagle, 112 Shawn Court, stated that the grass area on the west side of Jones Road is enough to park a car, but it is not enough if you consider the safety when getting in and out of a car. She stated that she has taken various photos that undoubtedly depict this and she would be happy to share them with Council. Ms. McGonagle stated that she also wonders of a fire truck would be able to get through the road when people are double-parked at times. She stated that she is mainly concerned with the safety of adults and children. Ms. McGonagle asked Council who owns the four parcels of land at the Bryn Du Property. She stated that they asked various times at the Bryn Du Commission meeting and no one seemed to be clear as to who owned which parcels. Mr. Strayer explained that the front field is split and the area with the gates is likely owned by the Township. Councilmember Mershon stated that he used to be on the Bryn Du Commission and he recalls there being pedestrian access gates on both front sides of the fence. He later stated that he would like to see the LSSU Committee discuss traffic slowing measures for that portion of Jones Road. Ms. McGonagle stated she believes the gate on the west side of the property has been removed. Councilmember McGowan stated that there is a gate on the northwest side.

Discussion: Council discussed the variation in price with the bids. Councilmember McGowan stated that sometimes bids differ because one company needs the work and another doesn’t.

Manager Holycross explained that the engineer writes of the specifications for the job and the contractor must meet those specs when bidding on the job. He stated that in this particular case the bidder met all of the specifications. Councilmember O’Keefe asked if there could be a cost overrun.

OTHER COUNCIL MATTERS

Mr. Strayer stated that the Licking County Land Trust along with the Township Trustees are looking at acquiring part of the land where the Spring Valley Pool is located. He stated that their long term goal is to remove the pool and have open space and possibly an education building. Councilmember Barsky clarified that it was just one portion of the property and she asked if the family was willing to wait for their timing. Mr. Strayer stated he believed they were willing to wait and that just the area in the back would be affected and not the land along Route 16. He estimated that between $400,000-$500,000 was needed to purchase the land. Mr. Strayer went on to say that they would like a letter from Council, but no financial commitments. Mayor Hartfield questioned if the Village would be getting involved in something that they ought not to be involved in. Councilmember Tegtymeyer stated that she received a phone call from Candi Moore and she stated that the letter would be a letter of support for the grant application. She stated that the grant requires a letter stating that the acquisition would be consistent with the Comprehensive Plan and it does not require Council’s authorization. Mr. Strayer stated that they are not asking for Council’s support, but rather a letter stating that they agree with the preservation of land in this area and it would be consistent with Council’s vision of open space in the community. Councilmember Barsky stated that there would need to be some reviewal of the Comprehensive Plan and the designation in this area. Council further discussed having Manager Holycross and his staff prepare a letter. Councilmember Tegtmeyer made a motion to authorize the Village Manager to sign the letter with no further action to be taken. Second by Councilmember McGowan. The motion was approved 6-0.

She emphasized that this would be an informal meeting (breakfast, coffee) and it is not their intent to replace the Community Connections Committee that already meets. She stated that it is meant for informal discussion of concerns and brainstorming. Councilmember O’Keefe clarified that the schools would be invited and Mayor Hartfield stated yes.

 

 

 

The Council Retreat is tentatively set for September 17th at 10:00am with the location to be determined. There is a possible follow-up date of September 20th for anything that is not covered. Council did not decide a time for the follow-up meeting, but they discussed having it prior to the scheduled Council meeting.

 

 

 

Councilmember Barsky inquired on the Comprehensive Plan Steering Committee. Mr. Strayer stated that he just received the Environmental Analysis and he will send this out to Council. Councilmember Barsky stated that it would be helpful for them to have this information soon and she would like Mr. Strayer to invite the School Board to the next meeting. Mr. Strayer agreed to do this.

 

 

 

Councilmember Tegtymeyer inquired if there is anything to be looked at with water and sewer in regards to the newly proposed school being built. Manager Holycross stated that he has not been contacted by the schools. Councilmember Barsky stated that the mode of the School Board has been to not inform until later and Council needs to be proactive in this case. She asked what kind of setup there is for water and sewer and can it sustain the new building. Councilmember McGowan stated that with the last school building Council did not extend water, but provided Village sewer. Councilmember Barsky asked if the current well could be a drain for neighbors. She stated that it would be helpful to have more communication before the election. Councilmember Tegtmeyer agreed.

Discussion: Councilmember O’Keefe stated that parts of the Ordinance do not make sense. Councilmember McGowan inquired on how the name was chosen. He stated that it was his understanding that a list would be provided to Council for them to choose. Village Planner, Chris Strayer, stated that he may have misunderstood Council’s direction, but he thought that the Homeowners Association would provide a list of names and the applicant whose home is located on this particular section of the street would choose. Mayor Hartfield stated that she believed the LSSU Committee was having the Homeowner’s Association choose a name. She explained that the applicant is the only homeowner on the leg of the street proposed for the name change. She stated that the applicant felt that it would be easier to find his home if this area were better marked.

Ordinance No. 06-06, An Ordinance To Permit The Demolition Of A Garage At 222 South Main Street was removed from the table by Councilmember Mershon. Second by Councilmember Barsky.



Discussion: Village Planner, Chris Strayer, updated Council on the decision by the Planning Commission. Councilmember Barsky asked where the dumpster would be located. Mr. Strayer explained that it would be basically where it currently is and to the front and center of the proposed landscaping. Mr. Strayer stated that the proposal for the dumpster with fencing looks similar to the dumpster located at 209/211 East College Street – First Federal Bank. Councilmember Mershon asked if the Ordinance required a bond for demolition. Manager Holycross stated that the city engineer felt it wouldn’t make sense to have a bond in this particular case. Councilmember Tegtmeyer made a friendly amendment motion to Ordinance No. 06-06. She stated that in Section 1 – Council hereby waives the requirement for bonding as suggested by the city engineer. Second by Councilmember Barsky.



Doug Wagner asked Council to consider waiving the thirty day waiting period because he would like to get the building torn down this weekend. Mr. Wagner stated that the structure is a nuisance because animals live under it and his insurance company does not want to insure the building. Councilmember McGowan stated that he was not on Council when the Ordinance was changed, but he is aware that they didn’t change a previous Ordinance with an emergency clause for a boy scout. Councilmember Mershon asked if anyone has changed their view in regards to the emergency clause. Councilmember O’Keefe stated that animals such as skunks can be a nuisance to neighbors. Mr. Wagner asked what the logic was to not have the Ordinance go into effect for thirty days. Councilmember Barsky explained that all Ordinances of any nature are not in effect for thirty days until after passage. She stated that there are some exceptions when it come to health and safety and she does not see this as a health and safety issue. Mr. Wagner asked what harm could there be if the building were to come down sooner than later. He added that there is a health and safety issue when you consider that by not having the additional parking lot, his clients must park on the street to go to his office. Councilmember Tegtmeyer asked if Mr. Wagner had anything from his insurance company stating that they would not insure the building or did he have any letters from neighbors. Mr. Wagner stated that he has not yet signed papers with Mike Chiacchira at State Farm, and he has called him stating he would need to sign a waiver because they refused to insure the structure. Councilmember Barsky asked when Mr. Wagner became aware of the process for demolition and what exactly the Ordinance entailed. Mr. Wagner stated that this has been a two month process for him. He went on to say that he was led to believe that Council would rubber stamp what the Planning Commission had already approved. Councilmember Barsky and Councilmember Tegtmeyer stated that they understand where Mr. Wagner is coming from and no one disagrees that he structure shouldn’t come down. Councilmember Tegtmeyer asked Mr. Wagner when he knew about the thirty day waiting period. Mr. Wagner stated that he first went to the Planning Commission on June 13th and he was not aware about the thirty day waiting period at the initial meeting. He stated that sometime along the way Mr. Strayer did make mention of it. Mr. Strayer stated that Mr. Wagner would have become aware during the Planning Commission process. Councilmember McGowan asked if anyone wished to introduce the Ordinance with an emergency clause.



Councilmember Tegtmeyer made a motion to declare Ordinance No. 06-06 as an emergency to make it effective immediately. There was no second to the motion.



Roll call vote on Ordinance No. 06-06: McGowan, Mershon, O’Keefe, Barsky, Tegtmeyer. (5-0) Ordinance No. 06-06 is adopted.
