New Business:
Villaize of Granville - Welcome to Granville Signs
Mr. Dorman said there are three types of signs: 1( )A larger two post, welcome sign, 2()the
same sign but smaller and mounted on one post; and (3)service organizations sign. He stated that after
the last work session we needed to select one of two color schemesw-h- ite lettering on green with white
posts or green letters on white with green posts.
Constance Barsky, from the Beautification Committee, stated her issues with the proposal: 1()
The nature of the logo vs. the logo on the letterhead. The proportions on the letterhead seem to be
better. 2 ()The committee still prefers black lettering on a white background
Suzy Murr added that the size jumped out at her and wondered whether it would rest on lower
posts. Also, the logo is not the one the committee proposed.
Consensus agreed the sign was too large.
Mr. Burriss wondered whether the grass would be maintained under the signs, and as such he
would like to see the sign installed higher
Mr. Parris thought the height of the posts would be more determined by the location and
topography and its relevance to the road. Mr. Dorman said no determination has been made about
where the signs will go. Mr. Myers thought there could be a little sign at each entrance and did not
think the larger sign would even be needed. He likes the sign hanging on the post.
For the organizational sign, Mr. Burriss asked whether each organization would have meeting
times listed and was told yes. Mr. Myers stated that the size of the service sign needs to be as small as
Granville Planning Commission,9-24-01
possiblenmaybe,4- x,!2'.Mr. Parris stated his concern that white signs tend to lookdirty after some
time.4 #1,54",, ,i·n#'%su,:
Ms.Lucier stated that the Village Council preferred the green background,and that it appears
the consensus of the Planning Commission is for the green also.
Mr. Burriss likes the hanging sign but it needs to be at a proper height to reflect headlights.
The logo was controversial and it was determined that it should be bigger. After some
discussion about the logo,in which the Planning Commission stated they did not really like the logo,
Ms.Barsky said a compromise could be the white background sign and no center graphic. Mr.
Dorman will have a new mock-up made illustrating this idea,and will determine the size needed for the
service organization sign.
MR. SALVAGE MOVED TO TABLE APPLICATION0 #1-122, PENDING THE RECEIPT OF
ADDITIONAL SIGN SAMPLES. MR. BURRISS SECONDED, AND THE MOTION WAS
UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.
Rob Firchau,126 North Prospect Street C-hange ofUse
The applicant wants to change the building from a coffee shop to a retail shop for specialty
foods. No issues were raised.
MR. SALVAGE MOVED TO APPROVE APPLICATION0 #1-129 AS PRESENTED. MR. BURRISS
SECONDED,AND THE MOTION WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.
Rob Firchau, 126 North Prospect StreetW -all and Sandwich Board Signs
The applicant wishes to install two signs: 1 ()A 4'x4'wall sign to replace the existing sign on the
south side,and 2( )A 2'x4' sandwich board sign.
Mr. Firchau said the lettering on the sandwich board is both dark olive green and black. All
lettering is black with green logo. The green on the wall sign is Pantone 371 and will have a black edge.
Since a wall sign may not exceed 8 square feet,a variance is required for this 16 square foot sign.
Mr. Salvage applied the application to the criteria in 1147.03:
A. That special circumstances or conditions exist which are peculiar to the land or structure(s)
involved and which are not applicable to other lands or structures in the same zoning
district. The sign is in an existing sign location.
B. That a literal interpretation ofthe provisions ofthis Zoning Ordinance would deprive the
applicants of rights commonly enjoyed by other properties in the same zoning district under
the provisions of this ordinance. It is clear,we have wall signs everywhere,and a literal
interpretation would deprive the applicant ofrights commonly enjoyed by other properties.
C. That the special conditions and circumstances do not result from the actions of the applicant.
No.
D. That the granting of this variance will not confer on the applicant any undue privilege that is
denied by this Ordinance to other lands or structures in the same zoning district. No
E. That the granting of the variance will in no other manner adversely affect the health,safety
and general welfare of the persons residing or working within the vicinity of the proposed
variance. No.

Granville Planning Commission,9-24-01
MR. SALVAGE SAID THAT BECAUSE OF THE ARGUMENTS CITED,I MOVE TO GRANT A
VARIANCE ON THE SIZE OF THE WALL SIGN FOR APPLICATION # 01-130. MR.BURRISS
SECONDED,AND THE MOTION WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.
MR. SALVAGE MOVED TO APPROVE APPLICATION # 01-130, SUBJECT TO THE FOLLOWING:
1)THAT ON THE WALL SIGN THERE WILL BE A BLACK BORDER;AND 2)THAT ON THE
SANDWICH BOARD SIGN WE APPROVE THE USE OF BOTH OLIVE GREEN AND BLACK
LETTERING. MR. PARRIS SECONDED,AND THE MOTION WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.
St.Luke's Episcopal Church,118 SouthMain StreetG -round Sign
Mr. Dorman said the applicant is proposing a 3'x2' ground sign on an existing pole with a white
background,blue lettering and border,and the crest as shown.
Ginny Sharkey from the church had nothing to add.
Mr. Parris asked Mr. Dorman to explain why this sign is nonconforming and was told that as the
pole exists, it is within the right-of-way. To be outside ofthe right-of-way,the sign would have to be 5'-
6' inside the building. This requires a variance.
Mr. Salvage said this replaces a sign that was there in front ofthe property owned by the Village.
Mr. Parris applied the application to the criteria for variances:
A. That special circumstances or conditions exist which are peculiar to the land or structure(s)
involved and which are not applicable to other lands or structures in the same zoning
district. The special circumstances include the placement of the building on the lot, and that the
pole for the sign is already in place.
B. That a literal interpretation of the provisions of this Zoning Ordinance would deprive the
applicants of rights commonly enjoyed by other properties in the same zoning district under
the provisions of this ordinance. We have to grant variances,because of these types of
situations, quite often in the Village, so I do not think we would be doing anything we have not
seen fit to do for anyone else.
C. That the special conditions and circumstances do not result from the actions of the applicant.
No, they did not place the building where it is now.
D. That the granting of this variance will not confer on the applicant any undue privilege that is
denied by this Ordinance to other lands or structures in the same zoning district. No,it is the
nature ofthe location.
E. That the granting of the variance will in no other manner adversely affect the health,safety
and general welfare of the persons residing or working within the vicinity of the proposed
variance. No.
MR. PARRIS MOVED TO APPROVE A VARIANCE FOR APPLICATION # 01-131 TO PLACE THE
SIGN ON THE EXISTING POLE,WHICH IS IN A NONCONFORMING LOCATION. MR.
BURRISS SECONDED,AND THE MOTION WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.
Ginny Sharkey stated that they want to identify this as a part of St. Luke's rather than Sensibilities.
You can see it from both directions. The front door is on the north side and will have no sign. This sign
will be temporary until the first lease is up in three years,at which time we might request a more
permanent sign. Mr. Burriss said the current sign at the church is so fantastic that it would be an
appropriate design for the new sign.

Old Business:
Granville Village Schools,248 New Burg Street M- odification
Mr. Salvage recused himselfin order to present the application. }
Mr. Dorman stated that the plan previously approved included a driveway extension that would
have extended across the school property with access to Burg Street. Now they want to remove that part
ofit and leave the greenspace. Mr. Salvage added that when they did the final architectural drawings,
they realized there would be a fire code problem,so they went back to dropping offschool children on the
other side ofthe school. There is no longer a need for an extension from the middle school and the
request is to leave that area with the current landscaping as is.
Ms. Lucier asked what were the benefits for the previous plan,and Mr. Salvage said they wanted
to fully separate passenger drop-offfrom bus drop off. Busses drop offin front and cars drop offin the
rear.
MR. BURRISS MOVED THAT THIS IS A MINOR MODIFICATION. MR. PARRIS SECONDED,

Work Session:
Dan Rogers.210 EastMaple StreetC -ontinuedDiscussion ofNonc-ompliant Garage
Mr. Salvage recused himselffrom considering this work session. }
Mr. Rogers repeated that the main issues were:1 ()Where the windows sit,and he said the window
will but up into the banding. 2 ()The shed roofor protection over doors;3 ()The style ofdoors;4 ()The
matching ofthe double window in the back;and ( 5)The side view ofthe shed roofover the garage door.
He explained these concerns to the group.
Mr. Myers stated that the front elevation over all has come a long way. He is not crazy about the
horizontal windows in the back. Mr. Rogers said the horizontal window matches the horizontal window
on the house.
Mr. Burriss stated that the window should be installed high enough to be over the headlights.
Repeating the window pattern makes it more comfortable with other windows. He asked how garage
doors will function and was told that it looks like four individual doors but there will be two sliding doors,
opening only halfway.
More discussion ensued on the windows,the detail ofthe bottom ofthe building,and the scale of
the little cornices.
Mr. Rogers is ready to make an application. Mr. Burriss requested detail on the bottom ofthe
building.

concrete or landscape timbers; to add a picket fence to the front yard, and a brick patio on the east side

what would look best. The picket fence around the front yard will be 42"high with posts and caps 46"

Granville Shopping Center,484 SouthMain StreetP -arking Lot Improvements
Mr. Dorman said the applicant is proposing to renovate the parking lot with cement planting
barriers and parking blocks to facilitate traffic.
Dean Ramsey,landscape architect,said there has been a lot ofdiscussion about the juxtaposition
betweentIGA and the gas station. When he talked to Ms. Ross,she told him that they have to widen the
approach by 10'.Mr. Ramsey said they are trying to make the traffic more functional. He showed GPC
members how the driveway would be altered to allow more stacking. This would avoid having people
cross in the middle. They would abandon a part ofthe bank space and enlarge the loop with one entrance
and exit'. Planting will be along walkway islands. Parking areas would be changed to get in more
parking.,They can put in some bollards with lights. Mrs. Ross is not completely happy with the new
traffic plan.
Andy Furr,from Certified,stated that this would be a revision ofGPC's prior approval. An
agreement has been reached with the Village,but there are other issues here. We agreed to move it back
10'to improve traffic flow. Mr. Wilkenfeld wants to make sure the.involved parties are in agreement.
Mr. Parris said that at one work session we talked about this a lot,and he thought everybody
t agreed upon the overaillayout. Now the whole thing looks different. He is not willing to overturn
something we have already approved,especially in light ofthe fact that IGA and Certified are still talking
out an agreement He recommended another work session.
Mr.Ramsey said the gas station's throat needs to be narrowed and moved back from the street.
He said he got a more accurate survey and it changed the parking slightly. He needed space for
movement of cars.
Mr. Salvage asked what agreements were made with the Village. This application is in conflict
with an already approved application. He hopes some kind of accommodation can be reached. The
applicant and Certified Oil need to come back with something that everybody agrees on.
Ms. Ross requested to table the application until the issues can be resolved.

New Business:
Brent G&igi Smith.225 West Elm Street G-arage/Familv Room
Mr. Dorman said the application is for a 24'x24'two-car garage below grade with family room at
grade. The Board ofZoning and Building Appeals will need to approve a side yard setback variance.
Brent Smith added that they are trying to improve the appearance by renovating the dilapidated
garage,a hazard for kids. Unlike most oftheir neighbors,they have no garage. There would be no
plumbing or air conditioning in the garage,but they will have baseboard heat. The builder explained it
would be 2-3"away from the existing shed. Mr. Smith said it will be redwood siding,with a mixture of
horizontal siding and board-and-batten vertical siding to match the house,and painted red to match the
shed.
MR. SALVAGE MOVED TO APPROVE APPLICATION # 01-147, SUBJECT TO THE
FOLLOWING: 1)THAT THE NEW BUILDING WILL BE SIDED WITH WOOD BOARD SIDING

Mr. Dorman showed pictures and explained that the application is for wood fencing, on the north
side behind the house,with two gates. The applicant will add landscaping around the house and two brick
patios, one on the north side and one on the south side.
Mike Flood, landscape designer,said the fence will be similar to one on Elm Street. The rear of
the north neighbor's house is forward ofthe fence. A similar application was approved about a year ago,
but the homeowner wanted to change the style so we resubmitted the application.
Granville Planning Commission -10-22-01
Mr.Myers asked about the two fences and was told one was the previously approved one and the
other,the new one. The picket fence is in lieu ofthe earlier approved cedar fence and will be lower.
MR.PARRIS MOVED TO APPROVE APPLICATION0 #1-149 FOR FENCE AND PATIOS AS PER
PLAN. MR. SALVAGE SECONDED,AND THE MOTION WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.
Work Sessions:
Clifton Crais.234 North PearlStreetR -enovations
Mr. Crais said the added-on lean-to was collapsing and a couple ofpeople said it was cheaper to
tear down that part ofthe house and rebuild. On the south there would be a screen porch in the middle,
which would mimic the style ofthe house. They are trying to maximize the east sun. There will be no
garage,although they are thinking one could be added to the back ofthe house. The entire back yard will
be re-graded and the existing cement slab would be removed. The footprint would be smaller.
Mr. Salvage likes the plan,and Mr. Parris reminded him to stay within setbacks and lot coverage.
Discussion ensued about the roofline and Mr. Burris provided advice about the roofline,windows
and doors,chimneys,and corner trim. Mr. Burriss thought ifthe ceiling height were lower,it would add
to the distinctly different addition.
Mr. Myers said the house is pure simplicity and asked whether applicant could move the addition
in 18"or so and keep the lines ofthe house on the Summit side. He wanted the applicant to be careful
about proportions.
Iftrees have to be removed,Mr. Myers would have no problem.
Mr. Burriss asked for a site plan with a footprint ofthe original house,what is to be removed,and
what is to be added.
Granville Historical SocietvS -innett House Addition and Connector
Laura Andujar,architect,showed her new drawings. Mr. Myers wished there were a way to
completely divorce the Sinnett House and the original building. He wants to see this plan in a 3-D
perspective and would then be willing to put it in the context ofthe street. Ms. Andujar will email the
plans to Mr. Myers.
Southgate Company Limited PartnershipV -ariances to 7 Lots in The Colonv Phase II
Larry Parr explained that they have built 17 homes, 5 are standard size. The market is requesting
plus-size houses,and seven of the lots in Phase II are not large enough to accommodate them. He has
requested either rear yard or side yard setback variances from the Board ofZoning and Building Appeals
to be able to add a screen porch or the plus-size option for these 7 lots in Phase II. The Board of Zoning
and Building Appeals requested that the Planning Commission give their informal approval to changing
this many lots,because they did not know whether this was a minor or major modification.
Encroachments would be 3.35' for those lots needing a rear yard variance and 4' for those lots needing a
side yard variance.
Mr. Parris,who lives in the Bryn Du Woods subdivision, sees no problem with the plan. The
consensus of the group saw no problem with the encroachments. The Board ofZoning and Building
Appeals has requested a recommendation,and Mr. Salvage offered the following resolution:

a one-story addition with walk-out basement for storage and delivery. Judy Guenther wants to serve
soup, sandwiches, and desserts in the tea shop. The restaurant would be open from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.,and
a gift shop on the second floor would have longer hours. She plans to have a two-burner electric hotplate

Granville Planning Commission,10/ 9/ 01
delivery schedule will be worked out later. Special attention should be paid buildings to the relationship of the to your side;one is a commercial structure and the other is residential.
Mr. Parris asked about changes to the existing structure and fire codes. Mr. Walker said the
proposed use is below the 4,600 square feet allowed and so they won't need fire partitions.
Mr. Parris asked about permitted and conditional uses,and Mr. Walker said a tearoom is permitted, and Mr. Dorman concurred.
Mr. Burriss asked about architectural details and was concerned about putting on a big square box
to the back of a building in a residential area. Scale is important. We don't want a blank wall with an
exhaust vent sticking out. We would take greater pains to look at elevations in this area. The residence to
the east is a beautiful building. These houses were moved and grew and grew. Noise and odors are
critical factors. Regarding massing, there are ways to break it down. There needs to be consistency
among the three buildings there.
No one had serious opposition to the project.
Judy Guenther asked about next steps. Mr. Myers said the key thing is screening of trash to keep
animals out. Detailed drawings will be required. Mr. Burriss did not want it to look like a commercial
addition. The group suggested that another work session would be in order.
Ross IGA.484 SouthMain StreetC -hanges to Rear Addition and ProposedFront Facade
The Rosses want to talk about changes to the rear addition, which was approved earlier,and the
proposed front facade.
Andy Ross said they are running into cost overrun problems with the addition and problems with
the air condensers and the porta-pak. He said the condenser units would be 5' taller than the porta-pak
units. They cannot lower the AC units. The new proposal is to take the porta-pak offthe roof and put it
on the ground. The AC units would move to the top of the porta-pak. This would have to be screened, but
Mr. Ross would not want to put block around it due to the expense, and he was told that a wood fence
would be fine.
Mr. Parris didn't think this was a minor modification. Drawings will be required.
Mr. Ross said regarding the front facade, it will jut out 40' into the parking lot. They will bring the
ATM inside the building.
Mr. Burriss doesn't want it to be a flat facade.
Mr. Myers hears no opposition to changes in the rear but has concerns about having a flat facade
in the front. He likes both proposals, the one story building with a tower, and the 2-3 story facade.
Gra, iville Historical Society
Bob Hill wanted to update the Planning Commission about their plans. They want to keep the
building separate so everyone will recognize the Sinnett House. They are limited in space for archives.
He showed drawings of their proposed plans. The Village gave the Historical Society 9' in their right of
way in the 19505.
Mr. Myers wants to see total elevations. His concern is the second story and the long rambling
length combined with the concise Sinnett House.
Mr. Burriss said at one time there was talk of an atrium with the Sinnett House separate and a
glass bridge connection. There are two jewels here, and we need a happy marriage between the buildings.
He thinks more architectural work is needed. The Natural Park Service has guidelines on adding to a
historical structure. There needs to be clear distinction between buildings. There are merits to.this plan,
but they need the same vocabulary.

Granville Planning Commission,10/ 9/0'1
Mr. Myers gave architectural suggestions.
Mr.Parris feels this is crucial to the community and we need to work together to make it work.
Mr. Burriss described the former Burke Hall and its architectural style and gave suggestions as to
Sinnett House in its Greek Revival style. Leave each building intact and have a transition between them.
Mr. Wilkenfeld suggested asking Village Council to supply funds to hire an architect,and the
group concurred.

Visitors Present: Jim &Jeanetta Pyle, Kathy Kerns, Walt Denny, Carolyn Carter, Eloise DeZwarte, Bea Eisenberg, Ted Handel, Ashlin Caravana, Kenneth Dickerman
Citizens'Comments: None
The Chair swore in all those who planned to speak.
Minutes of November 13,2001:Consideration of Minutes will be postponed until the next meeting.
Old Business:
Jim & Jeanetta Pyle.122 South Prospect Street - Demolition
The application was tabled at the last meeting,pending additional information on the future use of
the land.
Mr. Pyle stated that they want to expedite the process because the Historical Society plans to move
the Sinnett House through 122 South Prospect Street. There is a 60-day waiting period during which the
Ohio Historical Society reviews the historical aspects ifthey are deemed significant.
Eloise DeZwarte was concerned about the demolition because Granville is constantly working on
beautification of our village and she is not happy about a vacant lot. Also, Ganville Fellowship is
desperate for a house;could this be a spot for them?The Library will be partly funded by a levy and will
ask for support. When things like this are done,an overall plan should first be shown to let us know
exactly what will happen. She thinks we need more information.
Ashlin Caravana echoed Ms. DeZwarte's concerns for demolition without knowing exactly what
is going to be done there,and she would not like to see a vacant lot.
Kathy Kern,President ofLibrary Board,said the Library needs access to the space currently
housing the Sinnett House. They want to start demolition now because it is a vacant house and on the tax
register. They have hired an architect and will start a 17-week design plan in January 2002. They want to
expedite in order to help the Historical Society save the Sinnett House.
Mr. Myers is still curious about the timing. He would not have a problem with the Pyle house
going down and another building going in,but does not desire a vacant lot. Also,the levy is a year away.
Walt Denny, from the Library Board,feels it should be done now since the Pyles have tried for a
year to get this done, but there are problems with moving the house,i.e.,trees and the height. The Library
has given the Historical Society until the end of February to get their funding,and the demolition needs to
be done before that time.
Ashlin Caravana said when the Historical Society came before BZBA,it did not appear to be on a
fast track,and lots ofthings have to be done first. She thought the Pyle house could be rented until it is
demolished.
Mr. Parris questions the timeline because the Planning Commission is working with the Historical
Society as well. We are supportive and hope they can move the Sinnett House,but that will not happen
right away. They need funding and approvals. What will eventually be on the lot?Additional parking?
Granville Planning Commission,11/ 26/ 01
Mr.Denny said there are not enough parking spaces,and one thought was to build an underground
parking garage.
Mr.Wilkenfeld said we need more books and fewer cars. He asked whether the Pyle house has
historical value,and Mr. Salvage said ourjob is to make a recommendation to the Village Manager,and
he needs to know whether the house has historical or architectural value. Mr. Salvage sees nothing that
would let us recommend against demolition.
Mr.Myers said the architectural value is the context ofthe house on the street. The house is not of
significant historical importance,but it is very important in maintaining the architectural character ofthe
streetscape. The purpose is to maintain a distinct phase ofthe village's history. He is concerned about
what will happen in the future. Once you make a decision to demolish a building,you can never get it
back,and he is not in favor of demolition.
Ms. Lucier said she brought up this subject at Village Council and we seem to be proceeding with
this in a backward fashion. She does not have a problem with this building coming down,but this is not
the correct time.
Mr. Myers said the Design Group will provide real drawings for the site,and that would raise our
comfort level.
Mr. Wilkenfeld feels this is premature and is uncomfortable about the demolition.
Mr. Parris does not see why it needs to come down now. Once everything is ready,the Planning
Commission can move fairly quickly. The Historical Society needs funding first. He had asked for some
idea ofwhat was going onto the lot and the applicants have provided this. It appears it might be a vacant
lot for at least a year.
Walt Denny described what the vacant lot would look like with grass and trees.
Mr.Myers thought the stakes were high as far as the Library levy is concerned. Ifthe levy passes,
OK,but if it does not,we are left with a hole. There are a lot offuzzy issues now,and there is too much
risk to make an irrevocable decision. We need to see architectural drawings first. He would just as soon
not act on this application now,but Mr.Pyle wanted GPC's answer tonight. They have a contract to
move the house or demolish it by a certain date.
MR. WILKENFELD MOVED TO TAKE THE APPLICATION OFF THE TABLE RETROACTIVELY
TO THE BEGINNING OF THE DISCUSSION. MR. SALVAGE SECONDED,AND THE MOTION
WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.
MR. SALVAGE MOVED THAT THE PLANNING'COMMISSION RECOMMEND THE
DEMOLITION APPLICATION BE APPROVED BY THE VILLAGE MANAGER. MR..PARRISS
SECONDED,AND THE VOTE WAS: MR. PARRIS-YES;MR. SALVAGE-YES;MR.
WILKENFELD-ABSTAINED;MR. MYERS-NO.
Lacking a three-vote majority,there is no recommendation of approval to pass onto the Village Manager.
AndrewT &ricia Rawnsley,430 West BroadwayF -ence Modification
Mr. Dorman said the applicant cannot be here tonight because of a death in the family,and he
could present the modification. The fence was built with more fencing than what was approved. It was
supposed to start behind the window,but goes to the edge of the front facade of the house. It does not
infringe on any setbacks other than the TCOD.
MR. SALVAGE MOVED TO FIND THE MODIFICATION A MINOR ONE. MR. PARRIS

MR. SALVAGE MOVED TO APPROVE THE MODIFICATION TO APPLICATION # PRESENTED. 01-138 AS MR. PARRIS SECONDED,AND THE MOTION WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.
Ashlin Caravana.209 East Elm StreetF e-nceModification
The temporary green wire fence was originally approved to contain the child and would have been replaced by landscaping eventually. But now they have a dog that needs to learn boundaries,so the
applicant is seeking permanent approval ofthe fence. They do not want to install a picket fence or an invisible fence. The neighbors have no problem with the fence.
MR. SALVAGE MOVED TO FIND THE MODIFICATION A MINOR ONE. MR. WILKENFELD
SECONDED,AND THE MOTION WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.
MR. SALVAGE MOYED TO APPROVE THE MODIFICATION TO APPLICATION0 #00-22. MR.
WILKENFELD SECONDED,AND THE MOTION WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.
New Business:
New Day Spa, 1287 Cherry Valley Road- Parking Lot Expansion
Because of an increase in their business,the applicants wish to expand parking lot from 6 to 16
spaces. This will require a variance from BZBA for maximum spaces and being inside the minimum side
yard setback. Carolyn Carter said they were supposed to have a 4 2'/' fence to deter headlights,but the
two huge pine trees have big roots and they can't install a fence,so they wanted a 6' painted wood
privacy fence. They have new neighbors with an unsavory appearance to their property. There is a chain
link fence on their property.
Mr. Salvage is glad to see the business is a success, and the parking has no negative visual aspects,
but he wishes they could take out the chain link,a suggestion echoed by Mr. Myers. He is willing to pass
a resolution of recommendation to BZBA.
MR. SALVAGE MOVED THAT THE GRANVILLE PLANNING COMMISSION APPROVE THE
APPLICATION AS PRESENTED;THAT THE PLANNING COMMISSION ALSO INDICATE THEIR
DESIRE FOR THE FENCE TO BE ON THE PROPERTY LINE AND TO REPLACE THE EX[STING
CHAIN LINK FENCE IF THE APPLICANT SO DESIRES AND CAN WORK IT OUT WITH THE
NEIGHBOR;AND THAT THE PLANNING COMMISSION RECOMMENDS TO THE BZBA TO
APPROVE THE VARIANCES NEEDED TO ACCOMPLISH THIS. MR. PARRIS SECONDED,AND
THE MOTION WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.
MoundB-uilders Real Estate, 130 East BroadwavC -hange ofUse
The applicant wishes to rent the former Taylor's Drug Store and a change of use is required to
change from a drug store to a real estate office.

Kenneth Dickerman,321 North Pearl StreetR -emodel Porches
The applicant has already begun work on rebuilding 1St and 2nd story porches in the rear. He
wanted to create a bigger back yard by removing the catwalk.
MR.WILKENFELD MOVED TO APPROVE APPLICATION0 #1-165 AS SUBMITTED. MR.
PARRIS SECONDED,AND THE MOTION WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.
Work Session:
Brvn DuWoodsIm -prove White Barn
Mr. Parris recused himself in order to present the plan ofthe homeowners association. It is a
small white barn which needs to be upgraded. They want to add steps and guard rails. They want to put
trim on opening and repair the battens. It will be painted white. Steps will go in the center 12' section.
The other two sections will have guardrails installed. Alternatively,they could bring in dirt and slope it
up to the opening.
Mr. Myers recommended raising the grade 18".They could raise it to 18"and not need the
railing. The simplification ofraising the grade is consistent with the simplicity ofthe barn's architecture.
Finding of Fact: MR. SALVAGE MOVED TO APPROVE THE FINDINGS OF FACT FOR A
THROUGH C UNDER OLD BUSINESS AND A THROUGH D UNDER NEW BUSINESS AND WE
FIND THEM CONSISTENT WITH RELEVANT SECTIONS OF THE CODE AS DESCRIBED IN
