Citizens Comments:
Mr. Shulman from Village Council asked whether citizen input
would be invited at the time when V. C. makes plans to add a third
lane from Jones to Cherry Valley on Newark-Granville Road. Mr.
Tailford stated that it would be in the Sentinel and agreed that
it would be hard to change plans once the approval goes to ODOT.
Mr. Tailford will present the plans to GPC at an upcoming
meeting.

Mid-Ohio Development Corp.,Building #7, Offices at Erinwood
The signs applied for are consistent with sizes and locations
of the other signs within the office park and fit within
the BZBA-approved variances. They have already been installed
and match other signs in the complex. Mr. Salvage requested that
Mr. Tailford send Mid-Ohio a letter indicating that they should
have approval before they install signs, and this will be done.

Denison University, Beth Eden
Denison wishes to add a three-story wood framed addition
with a crawl space to Beth Eden. GPC has reviewing authority
over Denison for development. Drawings provided for the addition
to Beth Eden did not include measurements and setback distances; 4
however, Mr. Tailford assured the group that since there is
plenty of space at Beth Eden, it is not crucial to have detailed
plans. The addition will be no higher than what is already there
and is in the center of the property. Mr. Tailford added that it
meets all requirements for the institutional district.
MR. SALVAGE MOVED TO APPROVE APPLICATION; MR. STANSBURY
SECONDED, AND IT WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.
Announcements:
Ms. Robertson stated that it is important that all applications
arrive fully completed. The traffic plan for the
Granville Mill should be detailed when it comes in. Mr. Tailford
reported that Mr. Hurst found that Certified will be a conditional
use, requiring an appearance before BZBA. Mr. Hurst also
said that parking in front of the gas pumps constitutes legal
parking area and that the islands themselves can be calculated as
floor area; he will provide his response in writing. Ms.
Robirtson requested that all legalo 'te--an--TE from Mr. Hurst
be in writing. 2£60.2»-CV7- \

minutes well done.
Citizens Comments: Rob Davis, from the Athletic Boosters Fund,
wants to erect a 3 x 10 banner announcing the "bag day" activity
to take place in front of the bank at the IGA lot as part of
their fund raising efforts. It will be up for a week. Mr. Huey
moved to approve the banner; Mr. Salvage seconded, AND IT WAS
UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.
Public Hearing:
Jack &Judi Pyle, 1328 Cherry Valley Road
The chair informed the group that tonight- s hearing is to
clear up some unfinished items on the Pyles- application for a
storage shed and that we would simply work through the listed
items one by one. Two of the items generated some discussion:
1) "Extend landscaping to screen south and east side of
building."Mr. Myers thought that replacing the malus "snowdrift"
with something like white pine would provide better winter
screening.
2) "Show drainage plan (drainage arrows)M."r. Myers
stated that along the west property line there needs to be some sort of storm water direction. The amount of new paving would
seem to call for a swale carrying water to the ditch at the rear of the property. This needs to be worked out to the satisfaction of the engineers. Mr. Tailford stated that the engineers recom-

mended that any further building needs to be approved by them.
Mr. Huey suggested that the grade at the northwest be designed so
that water does not run off into the neighbor- s property.
In addition, Ms. Garrett suggested that the building be set
back farther from the road. Ms. Pyle stated grading considerations
as the reason for locating the building at that place and
relocating would require a lot of fill, which might run off into
the shop. Mr. Myers thought a swale of -2@Z- 30'
and recommended the building be moved back 20' 4

Mr. Myers asked about the PCD zoning for storage units, ict,01 p since he was absent during the earlier discussion, and .w-a.31AG ld
that this will not be precedent-setting because of the uniqueness
of the location and the fact that there will be no lights, no
signs, and no fences, and that the screening in this case will
improve the visage of the buildings there now. The storage units
are not a primary use of the property; they will be attractive Q
and well built, and thus fit within PCD. Clinder CSD, a new owner C.462·

consideration for the entire Cherry Valley Road was reconsidered
at the time when the Pyles first applied for the storage units.
Mr. Huey would not support additional storage units in the
A,
future. 6/2 - 3
Mr. Myers moved that GPC approve the application with the
following conditions: 1) that the malus "snowdrift" along
Cherry Valley Road be replaced with white pine; (2) that the
9uilding,EaSphalt drive, and parking be moved back to 100' from
the center road right of way; (3) that a storm swale along
northwest property line be 'added to channel storm water to north
and south side without adversarily affecting neighbors; (4) add
landscaping to the front of the driveway apron and northwest of
the turnaround to complete screening; (5) {added by Mr. Tailford}
any further construction will require approval by the village
engineers. MR. HUEY SECONDED THE MOTION, AND THE MOTION CARRIED
3-1 WITH MR. STANSBURY ABSTAINING. Citizen comment was not
solicited. 6 no s 4
Granville Milling Co.,400 S. Main -Rezoning
The Mill owners wish to change zoning from OSD and SRD-B to
CSD in order to erect two buildings, described fully in the last
minutes. Considerable citizen opposition was discerned, and GPC
felt it important to protect neighbors' property as well as to
allow the applicant to add buildings to more effectively run his
business. There was a community meeting, and Mr. Attebury
owner} is willing to add screening and move the buildings. But 50» 1 e
people are still not satisfied.
Mr. Westall spoke for the neighbors, repeating much of what
was enumerated at the last meeting, adding (1) Additional large
warehouses are not in Granville' s best interest; (2) more
business means more truck traffic and noise; (3) GPC should
2
protect the neighbors because they have protected neighbors in
other areas from commercial expansion; (4) Granville needs a
buffer between commercial and residential areas; (5) the Mill
should be responsible for landscapings/creening. Mr. Westall
challenged the GPC to come up with a reasonable compromise. He
thought a complete plan is needed for the entire area, i. e.,
South Pearl extension.
Mr. Michael said there was still opposition to rezoning the
entire five-acre parcel. Also, the fill is dangerously close to
the trees. He preferred that all vehicles be under roof, but Mr.
Watts told him that such a building would be three times as large
as that proposed. Mr. Tailford thought that some things stored
outside could be cleaned up and that the pallets could be stored
indoors.
After more discussion, 1R=p*° ts-- 8 the group wasre-mtrrde-d- that this i
rezoning request, not a formal application for two buildings,
the concentration of discussion became exclusively rezoning. A
compromise was eventually forthcoming:
Mr. Huey moved that we recommend to Village Council that the
0SD portion in yellow on the zoning map be changed to CSD. He
moved also that the SRD-B portion be unchanged. Mr. Salvage
seconded, AND THE MOTION PASSED BY,TO* 1 (Mr. Myers).
Y *I. David Longaberger, 537 Jones Road -Application change
Mr. Nagy explained the reasons behind wanting to change from
the previously approved post and rail fence to a 6- 6" metal
picket fence with stone piers with' lights rising to 8- 10" because
they want to (1) match the existing gate and fence on Jones Road;
2) enhance security around the house; and (3) increase safety
for polo horses and riders.
sa
and
Mr. Huey was concerned about polo riders getting thrown and
impaled on the sharp piekets. It would b¢better if the spikee
had rounded top¤, but the fenee ig gtill too high for the allowed
height of 48" and the stone posts are too big. The proposed
fence is inconsistent with the village even though it matches the
house fencing. Ms. Garrett suggested running the fence just
around the house rather than around the polo field and having a
post and beam type fence around the polo field.
Consensus agreed that Mr. Nagy should consult with Mr.
Longaberger and return with a revised plan within the ordinance.
MR. SALVAGE MOVED TO TABLE APPLICATION; MR. HUEY SECONDED, AND
APPLICATION WAS UNANIMOUSLY TABLED.
New Business:
Robert Parker, 136B South Main -Sign

MR. HUEY MOVED TO APPROVE APPLICATION; MR. SALVAGE SECONDED, AND
MOTION WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.
The Murphy Group -Erinwood, The Glen, Phase II and III
The Group has decided to combine Phases II and III at this
time. A landscape plan will be reviewed by the Tree and
Landscape Commission before coming to GPC which is required
before Phase II/III house are built. The sidewalk on Jones
Road from Longford to Newark-Granville Road will need to be
installed with this phase.
MR. HUEY MOVED· TO AUTHORIZE THE CHAIR TO SIGN THIS PLAT WITH
CONTINGENCIES THAT (1) SIDEWALKS ARE INSTALLED ALONG JONES ROAD
AND (2) LANDSCAPING BE SUBMITTED TO TREE AND LANDSCAPE
COMMISSION. MR. SALVAGE SECONDED, AND MOTION WAS UNANIMOUSLY
APPROVED.
The Murphy Group, The Glen Temoorary Sign Application
Two temporary blue and white signs are requested: 1) at
intersection of Jones and Longford under Phase I and (2) near
intersection of Langford and North Galway under Phase II. 3) An
existing subdivision sign is located along Newark- Granville Road
under Phase III and needs to be renewed.
MR. SALVAGE MOVED TO APPROVE THE TWO NEW SIGNS (1 AND 2) AND
TO RENEW APPROVAL OF EXISTING SIGN (3).The existing sign is
larger than permitted size but was within the requirements at the
time of installation. Mr. Myers seconded AND MOTION WAS
UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.
Spring Hills Baptist Church
The representative showed a drawing of the original plan and
explained how they want to expand in their next phase of development.
They want to expand the sanctuary by 70- and add two wings
to the educational building. The back parking lot will be
changed slightly because of the topography, and there is a temporary
turnaround in the front. Mr. Huey asked how long temporary
is, because a longer duration will affect landscaping and appearance.
The representative thought it would be for a year or so.
The plan will need the engineers approval of the drainage
because it was not addressed in the first phase. Mr. Salvage
would like to see a drainage plan as part of what is presented
tonight. The representative said a large portion of the drive
will be gravelled. Their engineer needs to work with the village
engineer.
Mr. Huey asked about screening, and the representative
thought they would be putting in shrubs and split rail fence,

Bruce and Lisa Westall, 2451 E. Maple
The Westalls wish to build a new house on the lot gained
through the newly acquired lot split. He explained that it will
have cedar siding, not vinyl siding. There will be an attached
garage, and they will add fill to the slope.
GPC members were confused by the sketchy drawings which did
not match the photograph. Mr. Salvage thought that a 16- drop
would not be workable, and the owners need to show an accurate
footprint of the actual shape, designating configurations of the
lot, distances from each lot line, and exact elevations for each
side. GPC wants to know exactly how the house will fit within
the contours and to see house plans with placement of garage and
basement.
MR. SALVAGE MOVED TO TABLE APPLICATION; MR. HUEY SECONDED,

Joseph and Amy Rogers, 326 Spellman Street
The Rogerses wish to do some remodeling, including a 92
sq. ft. addition with foundation and new roofing on the rear of
the house. Mr. Rogers explained that they will add 4' to the
exterior and they will change doors and windows, but the visual
profile will be essentially the same. All materials and siding
will match existing house. MR. HUEY MOVED TO APPROVE APPLICATION,
MR. STANSBURY«SECONDED, AND IT WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.
Work Session
Certified Oil Company, 466 South Main
Certified would like to redevelop the gas station and Mr.
Woods presented plans and asked for GPC input. He expects to
need several variances, i. e.,signage, floodplain, setbacks, parking. Lighting and landscaping should not present problems, but any GPC needs to provide architectural suggestions.
The diesel tanks need to be in front to accommodate tankers, and the existing tanks would come out and new ones installed. Mr.
Ross from IGA does not want Certified to remodel this way; the easement is on his property. Mr. Attebury did give them access from his land.

Mr. Tailford stated that South Main will be widened to add a
turn lane in that area and it will take a 10' portion of Certified-
s land. Ms. Garrett stated that we need to view an exact
plan showing IGA s site also. A retail outlet is permitted under
SBD zoning. Mr. Salvage requested a legal opinion regarding
the use of a convenience store, Ms. Robertson did not think this
fulfills the "retail outlet" option. Mr. Huey thought a gas
station is traffic-oriented and that there should be a conditional
use. Mr. Myers thought we should be consistent with the
Marathon situation. Mr. Myers was concerned with the short
setback and that necessity of screening. Specific problems were
summarized:
1) _S_iln_ale. The group preferred a groundl-evel monument
sign and that it match the building. What we told Marathon would
be appropriate here.

GPC recommended a simple, traditional

The dumpster needs sides to match the
building and be properly screened.
4) L _ilhlinK. GPC does not want additional lights, which
simply call attention to the merchandise. Canopy lighting can
get offensive.
5) _Disse1Eumps. Originally Certified wanted tankers
going around the building, but Mr. Tailford thought the turning
radius was insufficient, so diesel was put in the front.
6) Setbacks. Certified cannot fulfill the 100' setbacks
for TCOD with the tanks and canopy in the front. Mr. Huey stated
GPC could vary setbacks according to existing buildings in the
area. The Lumber Company and the station are close to the road,
and we do not want to place undue burden on Certified. Ms.
Robertson wanted to consider what would look best and work best
for Certified. An attractive building would be an improvement.
7) Parkine and Landscaping. Certified needs seven trees
and this would consume parking areas. They want to add pines at
the rear for screening. Parking is in front of the pumps. They
would also like to add more landscaping but feel Mr. Ross would
not let them.
8) ElnQdplain . Mr. Tailford stated that for less than a
half acre they can go under the floodplain. Mr. Woods stated
that the highest point on the property is 9. 11. 50, which puts
them 2 1/2- under the floodplain and they would need to raise the
building for sewer run-off. Mr. Tailford stated that they would
not need a variance if they can get the store over the floodplain
minimum.
Mr. Tailford stated that he will get together with Mr. Hurst about legal &a*ss. We should avoid variances where we can. Mr.
Tailford will also check to see what the requirements were under TCOD for the Murphy property. Our goal is to make the gas station more attractive. He will also ask Mr. Hurst whether pump parking is acceptable.

4) Decision on parking. 5) Decision on TCOD. Mr. Woods does
not need an architectural plan yet, but he should prepare a
rendering of how it will look.
Sign Code:
Mr. Tailford has been inundated with questions on size and
number of election signs and he requested GPC input. This year
was unusual with so many local candidates running for office.
Under existing code there are no limitations on number of signs,
and Mr. Tailford thinks· one sign per candidate/ issue per yard is
enough. Some people are saying he is interfering with their free
speech rights. Mr. Huey stated that this is a temporary, selfcorrecting
problem. The more signs he sees, the less likely he
is to vote for that candidate.
Mr. Tailford prefers 4 sq. ft. maximum signs behind sidewalks
or 10' from the paved road. Mr. Stansbury thinks signs should be
up no longer than thirty days prior to the election or five days
after the election and consensus agreed that these are valid
guidelines.S«ll
Announcements:
Mr. Huey announced that he is resigning from GPC because his
company has transferred him to South Carolina. He has enjoyed
his experience with the group despite the occasional problems.
Ms. Robertson stated thanks on behalf of the Commission for the
many, many meetings he has attended and for the many hours he has
spent on zoning and signs. She for one has always appreciated
Mr. Huey' s attention to detail and how much he carries around in
his head about regulations.
Ms. Garrett will resign from Village Council, thus GPC, and
after the election Council will assign someone else to GPC. Ms.
Robertson thanked her also for her service to the group.

Citizens Comments: Ed Vance brought before the group his concerns and
questions about proposed development at Cherry Valley Road at 16:
1. Have all required traffic studies been completed; if so, what
are the results and could we have a copy? The response was Yes. 3
2. Have environmental studies been made as to the possible
environments of each proposal, i. e.:air quality and air pollution,
odor pollution, noise pollution, light pollution at night, solid
waste/ garbage pollution, trash pollution from blowing papers, safety
considerations due to increased traffic, signage pollution, aesthetic
and visual pollution, increased incidents of crime and its increased
load on police department, increase of fire and emergency runs,
increase in infrastructure requirements and loadings on existing
treatments plants, including water, sewage, electricity, trash
collection, water quality pollution and hazards from buried fuel tanks,
oil and fuel spills, considerations for spill prevention control
countermeasures to protect environment and infrastructure from
hazardous wastes, requirements for providing recycling centers for used
oil and other contaminants, earthen embankments other to screen parking and eyesores.
3. Have all requirments of the village codes been met in regard to: signage limitations, permitted usage limitations, color require- ments, parking requirements, architectural compatibility?
4. If not, which requirements are being relaxeed, are anticipated to be relaxed, and for which such requirements have variances/ exceptions been granted, are anticipated to be granted, are now under review, or are anticipated to be requested?
5. If such facilities are actually approved, is the village re-
1
quiring or negotiating for appropriate color and architectural schemes
such as used by these companies on other locations?
6. Have these companies submitted plans for mitigating measures
to offset and control the environmental impacts caused, or having
potential to be caused, by their construction and operation?
In regard to the proposed Marathon station, is there any justification
to grant a conditional use in this situation when another such
facility is proposed for the same immediate area? Isn't the purpose of
the ordinances presently in effect to prevent such overcrowding,
proliferation of similar facilities, and facilities with similar
environmental and other impacts, from locating in the same area?
It is strongly suggested that all of the proposed developments be
required to address these environmental and other impacts on the area,
both immediate and surrounding, both short and long term, and be
required to conform to and abide by all existing codes, ordinances, and
requirements of the village without exception, variance, relaxation or
the granting of conditional usages. To do otherwise is to violate the
purpose, intent and, in some instances, perhaps the letter of the law.
Your careful consideration and attention to these matters and
concerns will be appreciated by the citizens of this community, both
now and in the future. What we do now will determine the future of
this community, will ensure that our heritage is passed to future
generations, and will either preserve or destroy the unique
characteristics and quality of Granville and the surrounding areas.
New Business:
Granville Historical Society, 115 East Broadway -Sandwich Board
The white sandwich board with black lettering is to say "Museum

Mary Tuominen, 452 N. Granger Street
Ms. Tuominen needs space for her dogs to run, and her neighbors
at least those whom she could locate) are in support of her application
for a backyard fence, which will be 4- inside the Mr. property line. Huey was concerned about the wire, and Ms. Tuominen explained that she wanted something attractive; it is called field fencing, 48" tall green dipped welded woven wire which won' t rust. There are trees,
outside the fence, on the south side and evergreens that cover half the width on the north. GPC only received this application tonight and has not had opportunity to examine the site. Mr. Stansbury moved to
approve application, Mr. Myers seconded, AND IT WAS APPROVED WITH ONE ABSTENTION (Mr. Huey).

Work Sessions:
Marathon Station
Cindy Schumaker and Kim Zeune explained that the station will be
next to Wendy's on Cherry Valley Road. They have gone to great lengths
to adhere to Granville' s zoning ordinances. There will be three pumps,
a convenience store, gazebo, bike racks, a carwash, and landscaping.
The plan is to accommodate cars and small trucks, not semis. A driveway
will be shared with Wendy's, and Mr. Tailford explained other proposed
traffic directional patterns. GPC expressed several concerns:
Parking: Parking toward the rear and sides should be encouraged,
as well as sufficient screening via mounding and landscaping. Mr.
Myers suggested possible site designs to achieve a reduction of asphalt
and to shield gaspumps from the road.
Setbacks: Ms. Schumaker explained that the setback is determined
by the height of the carwash, and to make it look good, they felt that
with landscaping it should not be a real problem since this is just an
alley. The variance would provide the best traffic flow there. Mr.
Tailford suggested that if approved, this variance should be offset by
an increase in landscaping. The dumpster should be moved away from
back property line one foot for each foot of height (approx. 16-).
Land sca_Ring: Mr. Tailford felt that landscaping is necessary to
screen parking and dumpster, carwash, and air and water pumps. According
to Ms. Schumaker, the plan is not ready yet but will include
mounding with trees. 61/
Architecture: With the carwash so close to the road, A articulation is needed. Mr. Zeune stated that the so-called white A-ed
bricks are not really white, but more a light reddish e* ire*.They are
not planning outdoor storage at this time. Mr. Myers suggested a
return to rectangular windows, rather than the half dormers in the
plan. Ms. Schumaker stated that this is not the typical gas canopy and
that they are emphasizing the convenience- store items rather than
gasoline. Mr. Salvage liked the design as presented, but others
disagreed and wanted strict adherence to the code concerning orientation
and felt that Marathon should be required to provide good reasons for requesting derivations from the code for the variances. The posts
holding up the canopy should not be a shiny steel; maybe they could be bricked in. Some GPC members objected to the blue and white striping
around the building and canopya -b- right color not subdued and there- fore might be construed as signage.
Sidewalks: Ms. Schumaker explained that there will be sidewalks in front and a bikerack in the rear. Mr. Tailford had suggested that
access to bikeracks is necessary. A 5- sidewalk needs to be provided along Cherry Valley road from north property line to the entrance with access to Marathon added.
Access: There will be a connection between the alley (which is owned by the Murphys) and South Galway. Mr. Tailford would like it as a requirement that Wendy- s traffic can use the access road. Signage: Applicant wishes to erect the internally illuminated ground sign as pictured and similar to Wendy-s sign. Mr. Salvage would
1
encourage more signage to invite customers. But under SBD there are
restrictions on what we can allow, and there will also be a sign
stating the gas prices. The goal is to plan something that looks good,
fits the law, and encourages Marathon to make a profit. A sign similar
to Wendy' s would be appropriate.
Lighting: Marathon has been advised to design a plan to meet
proposed lighting guidelines as a minimum while GPC considers final
lighting guidelines.
Bob Evans Restaurant
Larry Wills presented a revision to earlier plans conforming to
GPC recommendations. Only the restaurant, not the motel, is under
consideration tonight. Mr. Wills referred to previously noted
concerns:
Rufus Hurst has determined that a motel is a germitted use.
Lighting: The Bob Evans people will address the new proposed
lighting guidelines. They believe there should be no problem.
Landscaning: The plan will be submitted at the time of
application.
The architects have moved and screened the dumpster. They have
also reduced the heiaht of the flaanole from 70- to 30-.
Sign: They have designed a brick sign similar to Wendy's, with
bright yellow letters on a red background. Members considered both the
yellow and the red to be not subdued.

crosswalk signage and they will plan a pedestrian crossing. Once the

was so well lit with 13 lights that the whole building is like a sign.

not very much.
Additional concerns expressed by Mr. Tailford include:
Sidewalks: Sidewalks will be within the right of Bob Evans does not want way. to consider a connection to Dropertv to
the south until they know who is to move in there. Mr. Myers would
