Bryn Du Advisory Committee II/Minutes

September 18, 2003 7:00 p.m.

  

Attendees included:

Kim Miles, Candi Moore, Jurgen Pape, Tim Riffle, Lyn Robertson, Pam Satterfield, Nancy Recchie, Molly Roberts, Bob Loversidge, Mary Ann Malcuit, Steve Mershon, Candi Moore, Bob Gardner, Clifton Crais, Bruce Cramer, Tom Mitchell 

Tom Mitchell spoke to the committee in regards to senior housing.  He wanted to remind committee members the benefits of having tax revenue produce purposes for the Bryn Du property.  Mr. Mitchell stated that National Church Residency and Lutheran Housing has come forward to build low rent income based housing which would be restricted to ages 55-62 and over.  He stated that these are not for profit developers.  

Bruce Cramer asked what the definition of senior housing was.  Mr. Mitchell stated that the intended income level to target is $25,000 - $50,000.  

Mary Ann Malcuit stated that it would not be the developers intent to purchase the land and she is against any building or new structure being placed on this property.  She asked Mr. Mitchell if he had considered Spring Valley.  He stated that it was being looked at as a possibility. 

Lyn Robertson stated that organizations like National Church Residency and Lutheran Housing need time to submit proposals.  She went on to say that if it is the desire of the committee to be in next year’s cycle – the time to start is now.  She also stated that it may not be the appropriate time to request these proposals, and perhaps a different cycle would be good.   

Bob Loversidge stated that before doing any further checking there needs to be a general consensus from the committee what the end results should be.  

Nancy Recchie stated that there appeared to be some reluctance shown on the surveys to see any additional buildings or development on the property.

Nancy Recchie stated that she was recently made aware of the Licking County Senior Levy which could be applied for.  The funds might not be available for work on the buildings, but could be used for planning.  She stated that the deadline for these monies is October 15, 2003.  Molly Roberts stated that village officials are applying for the monies as a procedural method.  

Nancy Recchie and Lyn Robertson spoke on a visit they had to Oglebay Park in Wheeling, West Virginia.  They stated that the park is a non-profit organizations that has a close relationship with government, but also very separate.  

The city appoints two members to a board and the Chamber of Commerce appoints three.  Doug Dolby is the CEO/director of the Wheeling Park Commission, which was formed in 1924.  Fred Lambert is president of the Oglebay Institute.  When the city of Wheeling was offered Oglebay, it took them two years to decide whether or not to accept it.  Before 1950, volunteers were used.  From 1950 to today they rely heavily on philanthropy and volunteers.  It was mentioned that much funding comes from Pittsburgh foundations.  It was also stated that Oglebay charges for all services and there is constant flexibility amongst the Institute and Commission. 

Lyn Robertson stated that she is not suggesting that Bryn Du try to become Oglebay, but some of their philosophies could be useful.  She stated that their statement says “For everyone forever.”  Ms. Robertson stated that she felt a similar idea and openness could be a guiding principle for Bryn Du. 

Jurgen Pape asked what Oglebay’s regional/local attendance was.  Nancy Recchie stated that they are also a resort.  She stated that it was estimated that they have local attendance within a forty mile regional radius.  

Lyn Robertson stated that Oglebay is a resort, but in a way the Granville community is also a resort offering many of the same things such as golf, hotel accommodations, and restaurants.  

Mary Ann Malcuit asked for information regarding the buildings in place at Oglebay.  Ms. Robertson stated that there are cottages, a mansion with each room decorated in a different time period, greenhouse, amphitheatre, and an environmental education center.  

Lyn Robertson stated that Oglebay charges slightly higher rates than area businesses to prevent being in competition with them.  She stated that the committee needs to consider their impact on competition with any local businesses.  

Pam Satterfield mentioned an article she came across in USA TODAY regarding the need for retreat centers.  Ms. Recchie stated that a retreat center was the third highest rated want for the Bryn Du property according to the surveys.  

Candi Moore spoke in regards to a meeting she had with the bond council.  She stated that there is a state constitutional provision that prohibits lending to private entities if financed by tax exempt bonds.  Ms. Moore stated that revenue bonds can be used.  Ms. Moore went on to say that 2.4 million was the purchase price for the mansion, while Longaberger donated the polo field.  She stated that there is 1.5 million in outstanding bonds.  Ms. Moore stated that the bond council had no problem to carve up the property saying one part is financed using bonds and one part is not.  She suggested that the outer buildings be acquired without the use of bonds, and to allocate the debt to the mansion only.  Nancy Recchie stated that there needs to be some thought on how bonds are renewed when looking forward at any development.  Bob Loversidge stated that it seems as though there is some flexibility if you are careful.  Ms. Moore stated that the bonds are currently rolled every year – December and that bond financing will add an extra layer of thought to whatever is done at Bryn Du.  

Bob Loversidge spoke in regards to a recent visit he made to the Bryn Du property.  He stated that he had good news because the “underground” items such as electrical and plumbing seemed to be in better capacity than previously believed.  Mr. Loversidge stated that the Longaberger’s had spent a great deal of money upgrading these areas and there was enough electrical service to basically do whatever was needed.  Mr. Loversidge stated that the barn had a new electrical panel, and there was city sewer to the site.  He went on to say that there was no telephone service, but this would not be hard to add.  He stated that there was some evidence for intention to provide computer wiring in the future.  Mr. Loversidge stated that had the upgrades been done on a residential level, it would not be good, but they were done on a larger scale.  Moreover, Mr. Loversidge said that all of the buildings needed some work, but were in relatively good shape.  He stated that the mansion needed to be made more accessible and have restrooms.  He did not feel that adding restrooms would be too difficult because there was adequate plumbing.  Mr. Loversidge stated that a catering kitchen and service entrance were also needed.  A catering kitchen does not have an oven.  Mr. Loversidge stated that the second floor would need further investigation, and there was possible use in the front part of the second floor.  

Mr. Loversidge stated that the barn could be ready for use once cleared out.  He stated that it would need lights, electrical service, and perhaps portable bleachers and stage.  Mr. Loversidge was assuming use on the ground floor only since the second floor is in need of more attention.  Pam Satterfield stated she felt the barn floor should be left dirt.  Candi Moore stated that the barn does flood and this will need to be addressed. 

The Bryn Du committee discussed possible renovation costs.  It was stated that any and all costs should be appropriated in a phased approach.  It was also stated to keep in mind that any cost estimates were intended for the entire ten years.  Clifton Crais stated that he “loved the proposed timetable.”  Steve Mershon agreed that exact dollar amounts should not yet be discussed, however, the phased plan should be shared information.  He also asked if we should be getting public opinion on the phased approach.  Nancy Recchie stated that the phased approach was a result of public opinion already gathered from the survey.  Tim Riffle stated that no matter what a “total” renovation cost will be discouraging to some people.  He suggested not having total costs listed.  Lyn Robertson stated that people need to keep in mind that taxes will not go up to pay for these renovation costs.  

A proposed vision statement was distributed to committee members.  It was changed to read as follows: 

“Bryn Du is a long-term asset in the community whose purpose is to provide a variety of cultural, recreational, and educational venues for residents of all ages.  Bryn Du will be preserved, maintained, and over time will be enhanced to contribute to the quality of life in the Granville community.”  

Bob Loversidge stated that a vision statement would be a good thing to leave when this committee ends in October.  

Jurgen Pape noted that he feels this property is a long term asset that ultimately impacts home investment and property value in Granville.  

Some members of the committee stated that they felt that the consideration of appointments to a Bryn Du commission should not be limited to members of organizations such as the Granville Fellowship, Granville Historical Society, Granville Garden Club…..etc.  

Please note the attached files to these minutes. 

  • ·       
  • ·        A Bryn Du Vision Statement
  • ·        A Bryn Du Facility Use Permit Form

A sheet listing rental rates for related central Ohio facilities was also distributed to committee members.  

Nancy Recchie stated that comments on the handouts/attached files can be faxed (or emailed) to her at 614-464-9357.  

Nancy Recchie asked the committee how critical it was to have the final report ready by the end of October.  She stated that they could be ready, however she would like to work on getting committee members ready for the public meeting.  It was their hopes that committee members would do all of the speaking.  A Powerpoint presentation is planned for this meeting.   

It was determined that the public meeting would be moved to Sunday, November 9, 2003 from 2:00 – 4:00.  The new high school auditorium was suggested as the place.  Candi Moore stated that she would check the availability of the auditorium.  Molly Roberts asked Nancy Recchie to notify the Granville Sentinal of this change since it was previously published as a different date.  

The next Bryn Du Committee meeting will be October 8, 2003at 7:00pm.  A tentative meeting was also set for October 29, 2003.

Pam Satterfield updated the committee on the progress made in contacting various organizations and foundations for financial assistance.  Ms. Satterfield stated that she spent much time in learning the process of accepting/receiving funds.  She stated that most likely a 5013C fund would need to be set up, and this could take some time.  Moreover, Ms. Satterfield has spoken with people at the Granville Foundation as well as the Licking County Foundation.  She went on to say that a letter requesting money could be sent to the Licking County Foundation Board by September 4th of this year.  She said that she (and other members of the sub-committee) did not feel that they are ready to make such a request at this time.  Ms. Satterfield also stated that a mission statement needs to be created.  She found that money requests generally range from $2,000-$5,000 and some organizations will match donation amounts.  Most money is given after it has already been spent.  Ms. Satterfield stated that perhaps a professional grant writer would be needed and this could be expensive.  Ms. Satterfield also stated that an expense account for various things would be helpful.  Molly Roberts stated that any copies can be made at the village offices to help off-set costs.  

It was stated that Nancy Recchie is researching available money from state funds.  

Bob Loversidge stated that two areas need to be looked at when requesting

financial assistance.  One, is the need to know what you are asking for, and the second is knowing what entity will receive the funds.  Example: 5013C

Trudy Knox spoke in regards to a request for land for senior housing.  She stated that two organizations have come forward offering to build and fund housing for moderate income.  NCR (National Church Residences) and Lutheran Housing are two organizations that develop assisted living and independent living accommodations.  She stated that these organizations build in phases, and the first phase could be approximately 30-35 apartments.  A dining area and recreation area would also be needed.  Ms. Knox went on to say that 171 families live at poverty level in Granville Township.  

Lyn Robertson wished to add to Ms. Knox comments.  She stated that the idea of NCR and Lutheran housing is to “fill in where Kendall leaves off.”  The targeted income level is up to $50,000/yr.  Ms. Robertson stated that the developers have researched the need in the area.  She stated that NCR would need a proposal by May or June of next year.  It was also stated that a senior center at Bryn Du could be helpful because some of the existing buildings could be utilized.  Ms. Recchie stated that perhaps developers could redo one of the existing buildings instead of building a new one.  Lyn Robertson stated that at some time (if this committee is in support) she would like to ask council to put out a request for proposal from the two groups, and this would not cost anything.  Kim Miles asked what the minimum acreage requirement was.  Ms. Robertson stated that she and Tom Mitchell saw two places that could possibly be used.  One was behind the mansion and carriage houses.  The other is further to the west beyond the stable.  It was stated that the senior housing would use the same access/entrance point already in place.  Candi Moore stated that NCR would do a market study of what the community would support and this could be used to help determine the size and costs associated with such a development.  Bob Loversidge stated that he would be reluctant to see such a request go to village council at this time.  Bill York stated that he was opposed to putting any buildings in the grass area.  Ms. Robertson stated that that was never thought of.  Mr. York also stated that he would be opposed to any types of proposals going to village council at this time.  Lyn Robertson stated that she was not wanting to take this to council tomorrow, but wanted to include it in the thinking stages now with tonight being the first introduction.  

Tim Tyler wished to address the council in regards to him organizing an annual bike race at Bryn Du.  The first one would be on Saturday, November 15th, 2003.  He stated that the type of cycling he would like to have is referred to as “cycle cross.”  Mr. Tyler described the race as cyclists dismounting bikes and carrying them.  He stated that this type of race is generally done in the winter time and has become very popular.  Mr. Tyler proposed a theme of ‘old high school glory days.’  He would also like to incorporate a cross country run on the same day.  He went on to say that the local high school does not ever get to have home cross country meets because they do not have a course.  Mr. Tyler stated that he has had similar events to the one proposed in Galena and Spring Valley Park.  Mr. Tyler estimates a couple hundred runners and maybe 100 cyclists participating.  He stated that the organization he works through is a 5013C T.A.C.O and they have been in existence for fourteen years.  Mr. Tyler stated that he holds approximately 45 events per year.  He also stated that he would be sensitive to the property and its terrain.  He did emphasize the fact that there would be a trail made by the race, but he believes it will grow over in time.  Mr. Tyler did not believe he would need to use the large grassy area in front of the mansion, but he would like to use the back hillside for the race.  He would not be using the woods at all.  Mr. Tyler anticipates having kids races, and perhaps some vendors.  He went on to say that he provides his own insurance and this race would be handled very similarly to the one held in the village this past July.  Mr. Tyler stated that he would provide needed portable restrooms on the day of the race, as well as bike patrol if need be.  He also stated that he could add a surcharge to the registration fee which could be given to the committee/village for use of the facility.    

The general consensus of the committee was to allow any possible exposure to the property, and that this was a great idea.  Nancy Recchie stated that if funds (surcharge) were raised, this would set a precedence.  Bill York stated that he would work with Tim Tyler on the proposal to village council.  A motion by Mr. York was made to allow Mr. Tyler to use the property, seconded by Bill Moore.  Mr. Tyler stated that he would attend the September 3rd village council meeting to seek final approval.    

Candi Moore reminded the committee and Mr. Tyler that the township trustees should also be consulted since they do own part of the property at Bryn Du.  

Molly Roberts stated that on average 2-3 requests come in per week for use of the property and facilities at Bryn Du.  Some requests include soccer by the Recreation Commission, a house tour for school funding, and selling snacks during the polo matches.  Bill York stated that he could draft up some general guidelines for usage of the Bryn Du facility as it currently is to help village officials decide on what to allow and not to allow.  He went on to say that he would send these guidelines to committee members for their input. 

Nancy Recchie spoke in regards to the surveys.  Approximately 266 were received.  163 forms were collected, 34 surveys came from the newspaper, and 69 were filled out on the web-site.  Ms. Recchie stated that the surveys themselves are available in the village offices for anyone to look at.  She went on to say that the numbers were very high on holding community type events in the grassy area out front – such as polo.  Bob Loversidge stated that the survey was not meant to be used as a feasibility study. 

Bob Loversidge spoke on possible scenarios for development of the site.  He had several topography maps available depicting different uses.  Each plan included keeping the open grassy area as is.  The first plan called for keeping the house like a house – entertaining, special events, weddings, retreats, etc.  Mr. Loversidge stated that this plan would allow for activity to occur in the mansion during the week – perhaps leased private offices in the upstairs.  Mr. Loversidge stated that he envisioned food being brought in for special events and not having a full kitchen.  He also stated that he had been in contact with some local restaurants on their interest in catering at the mansion for such events.  Mr. Loversidge stated that this plan would call for not having a single tennis court and perhaps a full service fitness center.  He stated that some renovation is required, but the shell is there.  He also stated the possibility of outdoor basketball courts.  Bill York mentioned an interest in roller hockey and believed the youth hockey league would be open to funding it.  Mr. Loversidge went on to say that there would be adequate room to expand the pool, and that this area really needed additional thought.  He also stated that perhaps one building could be used for a senior center and one as a possible restaurant.  Mr. Loversidge mentioned the possibility of an art gallery in the existing barn.  Jurgen Pape mentioned the barn also being used to board horses and wondered if the equestrian group/polo group would be interested.  Mr. Pape stated that the barn is already set up for such usage.  Mr. Loversidge stated that outdoor performances could be held in the northern end of the site.  Lastly, Mr. Loversidge stated the possibility of restoring gardens at Bryn Du.  He stated that he had spoken with the local Garden Club and they seemed excited about this possibility.  Mr. Loversidge reinterated the fact that he sees this as a long term plan and he foresees the property becoming fully developed over time. 

Mr. Loversidge stated that he did not foresee traffic and congestion as a huge problem if the existing parking was fixed up. 

There was some debate as to whether or not there is a second easement in the rear of the property.  Jurgen Pape believed that there was because a prior committee had requested it.  Joe Hickman stated that there are easements, but he was not sure if they were only meant as utility easements.  

Mr. Loversidge went on to explain what he referred to as the “other extreme.”  He stated that another scenario might be to have the village retain the land and sell of the remaining property with conveyances that control the development.  Mr. Loversidge stated that the window of opportunity for this option could be anytime.  

Mr. Loversidge stated a third scenario and referred to it as the “Commercial Plan.”  He stated that the open space would be left as is, and the village would retain ownership of the entire property, but lease the house, buildings, and land parcels.  Mr. Loversidge stated that all buildings are in relatively good shape with good roofs.  Bill York asked the square footage of the mansion.  Nancy Recchie stated that it is approximately 13,000 square foot.  It was mentioned that the village would most likely need to retain someone to manage the facility, and a lease management company could be easily contracted if need be.  

Mary Ann Malcuit stated that it might be possible to have a volunteer board oversee the administration.  Nancy Recchie stated that this could be a possibility, but the general consensus is that someone would need to be staffed to provide oversight.  Ms. Malcuit also asked how one would go about choosing who can use certain buildings.  Mr. Loversidge stated that guidelines would certainly need to be set up.  Molly Roberts stated that a tax exempt bond is currently financing the property and there are some restrictions that apply.  She stated that a bond expert would be available to speak with the committee to provide any needed information.  Ms. Recchie asked to have a meeting with the individual and it could be determined at a later time if it would be helpful for him to address the entire committee.  It was stated that 1.5 million is owed and the note is a one year note.  Bill York stated that by just having two tenants leasing the facility at this time it could cover the cost of the note.  

Candi Moore stated that the green space levy does not allow for anything that would add considerable improvement to the site.  

Jurgen Pape stated that the options presented with the least amount of changes appeal to him.  

Bob Loversidge stated that he is apprehensive to any dramatic changes, and wondered how the committee felt about the resulting changes that would occur if the senior housing proposal went through (NCR, Lutheran Housing).  Bill York stated that if the developers were willing to pay money for many of the wanted changes the committee would like to see, he would be in favor.  However, if the developers just want the land donated he would be opposed.  Mary Malcuit mentioned that Spring Valley might be a good option for senior housing (NCR).  Jim Siegle stated that he did not agree with the NCR findings that transportation for seniors is non-existent in Granville.  Tim Riffle stated that senior housing at a moderate cost is a great idea, but is this property the ideal spot.  Bill Moore stated that no one is opposed to senior citizen uses for the property.  Jurgen Pape stated that he is in support of the senior housing idea, but not yet convinced that the Bryn Du site is the best place for it.  Bob Loversidge stated that the proposed terrain for the senior housing may not be the best and not big enough.  

Mr. Loversidge asked each member of the committee (and visitors) to convey their thoughts on the property.  

Tim Riffle stated that if the proposed changes cost too much he believes the property should be sold with conveyances.  If affordable, he would love to see the property used for recreational type activities for the community.  He also envisions the mansion being used for multi-purpose uses such as parties, offices, special events.  Mr. Riffle would like to see the gardens redone and the barn used.  He sees the facility having mixed uses and the use being in incremental stages.  

Candi Moore stated that she envisions multi-uses of the property.  She sees a community center type facility with art and recreation.  She also envisions a partnership with other organizations to help pay for the associated costs.  Ms. Moore stated that she would like to see Denison lease space for artwork.  Furthermore, she sees the mansion as the show piece/center piece.  Ms. Moore went on to say that the town relies on out of town visitors and she would rather see tourism than more housing developments.  She ended by saying to think long term and don’t think too small – the property is a great asset to the community. 

Joe Hickman stated that he sees the mansion as the center piece.  He envisions a plan done in increments.  He also conveyed a need for village officials to have guidance/policies in place for the day to day operations/requests for the property.  Mr. Hickman stated that he currently has some concerns with the pool and is considering filling it. 

Janet Gordon stated that she has lived in Granville all her life and she remembers playing on property as a child.  She would like to see kids once again using the property in some fashion and she stated she was in agreement with many of the previous comments. 

Kim Miles stated that it is important to let people use the facility.  She also stated that if events are held at the mansion a kitchen type area is certainly needed. 

Mary Ann Malcuit also stated that a kitchenette is needed in the mansion.  She went on to say that additional bathrooms were required.  Ms. Malcuit is in favor of keeping the property as is and certainly keeping the green space.  She ended by saying she agreed with many of the previous comments.  

Bill Moore stated that he too agreed with the prior comments.  He enjoys watching polo on the grounds and envisions renting out the mansion.  He also stated that he would like to see horses in the barn.  

Jurgen Pape stated that he too would like to see horses in the barn.  He envisions very little change in the mansion, but perhaps private use in the upstairs.  He stated that it is too premature for making any other definite decisions on the other buildings at this time.  

Jim Siegle stated that he envisions a phased approach.  Mr. Siegle sees the mansion as the keystone to the entire property.  Mr. Siegle does not believe the main floor will rent/lease well without a kitchen facility.  He also stated that he is hesitant of any new constructions because that would detract from the overall aesthetics of the entire estate.  

Jackie O’Keefe stated that the vision for the property needs to be out there.  She stated that the mission needs articulated and this will sell itself.  Ms. O’Keefe stated that senior citizen housing would have a tremendous impact.  

Bill York stated that he has always envisioned a “city park.”  He stated that he decided to join the committee because he feels money is at times frivolously spent.  

Joe Hickman stated that a request for the Tour of Homes came in from the school.  The date would be October 4, 2003.  He stated that a decision needed to be made because tickets needed to be printed soon.  Bill York made a motion to allow the school to use the mansion on October 4 of this year.  Bill Moore seconded.  No one opposed the usage of the facility by the school and the general consensus of the committee was that the more uses – the more interest.  

The next meeting was set for Thursday, September 18 @ 7:00 p.m.   

A public meeting was tentatively set for October 12, 2003 at the Bryn Du property. 

Mary Ann Malcuit asked if people could be given the results of the survey.  Nancy Recchie stated that some type of synopsis could be provided.

Bryn Du Minutes July 16, 2003

Bryn Du Advisory Committee II/Minutes

July 16, 2003 6:00 p.m.

 

Attendees included:

Steve Mershon, Kim Miles, Candi Moore, Jurgen Pape, Tim Riffle, Lyn Robertson, Pam Satterfield, Bill Moore, Bill York, Nancy Reecie, Jeff Darby, Chris Brokaw, Molly Roberts, Lisa Minklei, Denise Chamberlain, and Mayor McGowan. 

The committee met to primarily discuss the upcoming open house at the Bryn Du mansion on July 27 from 1:00 – 5:00.  Volunteers are asked to report at 12:30 that day.  Lyn Robertson was asked to give opening remarks during the fifteen minute overview.  Polo will begin at 2:30.  Discussion groups will begin at 3:00.  The discussion groups will focus on the site, mansion, and outbuildings.  Nancy Reecie stated that Chris, Bob and herself would be responsible for gathering materials for discussion groups.  This would include things like blowing up drawings, getting easels, etc.  Nancy Reecie stated that there would be some type of handout with the agenda on it.  She currently envisions a map with a photo of the grounds and the agenda on the back.  The map would indicate restroom facilities.  

The architecture sub-committee was asked to work with the Granville Recreation Commission on recruiting volunteers for the open house.  Members of this committee include Bill Moore, Jurgen Pape and Tim Riffle.  Denise Chamberlain was present to represent the Recreation Commission.  She stated that members are willing to help.  Bill Moore stated that his wife, Melinda Moore, would be willing to help coordinate additional volunteers for that day.  Nancy Reecie stated that if there were enough volunteers they could be scheduled in two shifts.  Each volunteer should report ½ hour before their shift. 

Denise Chamberlain asked to have copies of the survey so she could give them to the Recreation Commission.  

The committee decided to have copies of the community survey available at the open house for public comments/suggestions.  It was decided that an additional 500 copies be made with the survey deadline printed on them.  The deadline for filling out the survey is August 15th.  Chris Brokaw stated that the survey is currently on the Schooley Caldwell web-site and would be available on the Granville web-site as soon as he could coordinate it with Liz Maher, the web master.  He hoped to have it available this week.  The survey is currently available at the village offices as well as the library. 

The committee decided to leave certain areas closed during the open house.  These would include the pool house which houses the pump and equipment, as well as the barn and balcony.  It was decided that parts of the third floor (mansion) were now cleaned up enough to show.  Certain areas on the third floor would still need to be restricted.  It was mentioned that the barn doors could be left open to look through, but not allow people inside.  Moreover, Chris Brokaw stated that he had digital pictures of some of the restricted areas and he would look into having pictures of these areas available for people to see.  

Molly Roberts stated that she would check with village staff and others on the following items:

  • ·        Chairs for open house
  • ·        Police presence for open house
  • ·        Unlocking of the facility on the day of the open house
  • ·        The cistern behind the house has been covered with plywood, but does it need additional 
  •          barricades?
  • ·        Locking up of the facility at 3:00 and 5:00, but having the restrooms available
  • ·        Trash cans, since refreshments will be provided
  • ·        Open house information on village bulletin board and website
  • ·        Is the flag pole area available for a banner in the center of town?
  • ·        History information emailed to Nancy Reecie in regards to Bryn Du mansion 

Several committee members stated that volunteers needed to be at each end of the pool to ensure safety on the day of the open house. 

Tim Riffle presented a sample of a banner that could be purchased for the open house.  The committee decided to place the banner in the center of town, if possible.  The cost of the banner is $65.00.  

Bill Moore stated that Whit’s Frozen Custard would be providing refreshments for the open house outside on the grounds of the property.  It was stated that no food/drink should be allowed in the mansion.  Whit’s would need access to electricity. 

Lyn Robertson stated that Denison University could possibly loan chairs if needed.  Denise Chamberlain stated that the Recreation Commission had recently borrowed chairs from Granville schools and they could also be an option.  It was decided that no more than 75-100 chairs would be needed.  

Matt McGowan, Candi Moore, and village staff will handle sending invitations to elected officials.  These would include:  trustees, county commissioners, state representatives, state senator, and congressman.  

Chris Brokaw spoke on the survey being available on the website.  He stated that for $20.00 per month 1000 responses could be tabulated and stored in a relational database.  This information would then be searchable and sortable.  He went on to say that with administrative access (passwords) the information could be downloaded fairly easily.  

Nancy Reecie stated that she had sent press releases to the Newark Advocate and T-100 radio station.  She also stated that perhaps the Granville Sentinal could mention the survey being available on the website in next weeks paper.  

Bill York stated that he had two items to discuss not related to the Bryn Du open house.  First, he indicated his interest in leasing approximately 3000 square foot of the Bryn Du facility for office space.  He stated that he has previously sent emails to the village manager about his interest.  Nancy Reecie asked him to email this request to her.  Secondly, Mr. York distributed some information regarding outsourcing the operation of a pool.  He stated that he was familiar with this company and believed the cost to be around $40,000 for a pool located where he previously lived.  

Lisa Minklei stated that she was in attendance to see if it might be possible for the Licking County Coalition for Housing to hold a mardi gras fundraiser at the Bryn Du mansion on February 28, 04.  Nancy Reecie asked Ms. Minklei to email this request to her.  She also stated that the committee will make their recommendation in late October, therefore she believes this request would need to go through village officials.  

Nancy Reecie stated that she is in the process of scheduling interviews.  She appreciated all of the emails indicating appropriate people to be interviewing.  

Nancy Reecie stated that she would be responsible for bringing a basket to collect the surveys on the day of the open house.  

The next meeting is scheduled for August 27 at 7:00 pm.  

Bryn Du Minutes June 10, 2003

Bryn Du Advisory Committee II/Minutes

Attendees included:

Mary Malcuit, Steve Mershon, Kim Miles, Candi Moore, Jurgen Pape, Tim Riffle, Lyn Robertson, Pam Satterfield, Jim Siegel, Bill Moore, Bruce Cramer, Bill York, Nancy Recchie, Bob Luverish. 

Bob Luverish stated that they, as consultants, are there to help facilitate the decision making process.   He went on to say that they will help the committee work with the public and other people’s money.  Mr. Luverish asked the committee what their project goals were and what they have done so far to meet them.  

Candi Moore stated that there was an open house in conjunction with the Spring Egg Hunt held this past Spring.  She mentioned the summary of comments and public input put together by Pam Satterfield.  Nancy Recchie asked for a copy of the data.  

Bill York stated that all that has officially been done is choosing the contractor.  

Mr. Luverish stated that most likely all decisions would not be solved by October, but that the committee’s goal should be to narrow the focus with an implementation plan.  Mr. Luverish went on to say that the consultants envision three goals: 

1 – Programatic approach    

2 – Look at physical/architecture structures   

3 - Pay for it component

He also stated there needed to be a schedule and pace that everyone felt comfortable with.  Mr. Luverish and Ms. Recchie went over the following proposed schedule:

June – data gathering

July – public work (surveys, charrette, open house)

August  - support work done

September – go back to the public

The committee felt good about the proposed schedule and pace when asked. 

Ms. Recchie stated that interviews will need to be done with various people.  She anticipates the need to have committee members involved in the interview process at times.  However, she also said that it may be best for the consultants to conduct some of the interviews since they can represent themselves as living elsewhere than Granville.  

Pam Satterfield asked if any duplicate work would be done during the proposed open house.  Ms. Recchie stated that she envisioned building on the information already gathered at the previous open house.  The consultants also mentioned having design sketches available at the open house as well as a program.  

Bob Luverish stated that “all of this has to do with ownership.”  He stated that if it’s the community that plans it – it will happen.  Mr. Luverish went on to say that the more people who are present at the open house, the better chance of succeeding.  Mary Malcuit agreed and said that she would like to make sure that the people of the community really know that they are the owners of the property.  

Jurgen Pape asked why the committee has an October deadline.  Lyn Robertson stated that council had established the timeline.  Candi Moore stated that this would be close to the time when the notes had to be rolled over and that it is best to have a set deadline to ensure the committee is moving forward.  

Bob Luverish stated that the committee is rather large.  He suggested breaking up into sub-committees.  He also suggested that anyone on the committee who has not read the first committees report should do so.  The following sub-committees were formed: 

1 – Programming and Uses Committee

2 – Physical/Architecture Committee

3 – Funding Committee

Ms. Recchie sent around sign-up sheets for each committee.  She also suggested that committee members sign up for just one sub-committee.  

Ms. Recchie stated that the Programming and Uses Committee would first look at the issue of conducting a community survey.  She mentioned a previous conversation with Keith Myers and his suggestion of putting the survey on the village web-site.  Ms. Recchie also said the survey should be available at the library.  She stated that it would be best to have the survey ready by early July.  Ms. Recchie stated that members of this committee would also be responsible for working on interviews with various people.  Bill York asked how the web-site survey would be controlled.  Mr. Laverish stated that you could possibly not ask voting questions.  Ms. Recchie stated that the web survey is certainly not scientific and does not need to be used to make final decisions, but simply gather information.  Mr. Laverish added that the survey is a good opportunity to gain ownership by the community and that it is very important to get word out to the community that they are asking for their input.  

The consultants went on to explain what members of the Physical/Architecture Committee would be responsible for.  They envision this committee implementing the design focus for the open house and charrette, as well as assessing the condition of the buildings.  Ms. Recchie stated that some people with engineering or architecture experience may be interested in serving on this committee.  Candi Moore stated that the village has already replaced the front door to the Mansion, as well as removed some trees,  and altered some existing beams.  Ms. Moore asked for committee members to look for anything that the village might want to take a look at that could be helpful.  Mr. Laverish stated that this sub-committee may also want to look at what buildings need “stapled” to keep in good condition.  

The third committee, the Funding Committee, would be responsible for contacting other communities that have undertaken similar community projects.  Members of this committee would serve as liaisons with community groups and public.  Ms. Recchie stated that in this first phase she sees this committee recommending some direction and not necessarily having all the funding issues figured out.  Ms. Recchie went on to say that members of this committee need to listen to what participating groups might want or need and keep the door open to any potential possibilities.  She also stated that much emphasis needs to be on the organizational structure and how to operate.  

Kim Miles suggested that the sub-committees email information back and forth between meetings and before the large group committee meetings.

  • ·        Elected public officials

8:00 p.m.  -  Ms. Robertson began the meeting by asking members to comment on likes/dislikes of each firm.  

Acock Associates Architects

Bruce Cramer stated that this committee considered all of the options.  Tim Riffle stated that he had some concern on what this firm mentioned doing with the lawn area.  He felt it was important to keep focused on the original intent that the village had in buying the area and that was leaving it as green space.  Pam Satterfield stated that she liked this company’s enthusiasm, however they did not answer questions as well as other companies did.  Lyn Robertson stated that Acock Associates did not make the process known, even after asking them specific questions in regards to the process.  She also stated that she liked their closing.  Bill Moore said that he was impressed with their background and that they appear to be very talented.  Mary Ann Malcuit stated that this was the only company to suggest possible uses of the facility.  Bob Gardner stated that Acock is strong in conceptualizing, artistic, and head strong.  He went on to say that they have done many projects around the country, but personally believes they are stronger on the private side, rather than the public.  

David Benjamin Meleca

Pam Satterfield said that she liked this company’s mission statement.  She went on to say that they exhibited confidence and answered all of the questions well.  Tim Riffle stated that he has worked with this company before and feels that they are very good at staying on budget and very experienced.  Joe Hickman mentioned problems that the village has had in the past with this particular company and overrunning costs.  Clifton Crais stated that he admired this firm’s prophesizing qualities.  He went on to say that they had a wide lens in terms of potential players and a better combination of public and private.  He stated that they mentioned the school system.  Mr. Crais stated that this company reminded him of “new urbanism.”  Steve Mershon stated that Meleca’s approach seemed to involve new construction and that this firm exhibited a lesser approach to renovation.  Lyn Robertson said that this company did not focus on the funding side of the project.  Bill Moore wondered if some of the pictures that this company displayed were actual projects that they had done or just examples of architecture.  Bob Gardner stated that they were involved in the projects, but likely did just pieces and parts of it.  Clifton Crais said that Meleca appeared to be clearer on the process than Acock.  Bill Moore said that this firm stated that they specialize in single family homes.  

Lupton Rausch

Bill Moore stated that this firm has no local ties and did not exhibit much enthusiasm.  Mary Ann Malcuit stated that this company did not go and look at the mansion; however she was impressed with the head person working on the Dublin Art Center.  Tim Riffle mentioned that there were only three people and one half of their team appeared to be glossed over.  Tom Mitchell stated that this company did not appear to work on traditional buildings.  Clifton Crais stated that he was impressed with the president, and that he seemed sharp.  He did wonder if the company was having financial difficulties.  He later went on to say that this company seemed fairly narrow on their set of products.  Keith Myers stated that he did not believe the company was in trouble, but knows that they have considerable resources tied up on a current project.  Bob Gardner stated that he believes Judy Williams has a fabulous reputation for working funding/grant issues on the historical side.  Bruce Cramer inquired on what services Judy Williams would provide and how they are broken up.  Bill Moore asked other committee members if it was the consensus of the group that they are not comfortable with this firm.  Many spoke up in agreement. 

Schooley Caldwell Associates

Pam Satterfield stated that she loved this firm.  She went on to say that their process was clear, scheduling was good, and they displayed all of the needed information, including an implementation plan.  Tim Riffle stated that this firm is very good and well known.  He also stated with the former committee worked with Schooley Caldwell.  Jim Siegel stated that this firm appeared to have more experience in the historic area.  Pam Satterfield said that she noticed one negative point when the firm mentioned needing help gathering public opinion.  Lyn Robertson stated that she viewed the firm’s comments on this in a different way and felt that Schooley Caldwell saw it as essential for the community to be a part of this.  Clifton Crais stated that he was “seduced” by this firm and saw them as a favorite.  Bruce Cramer asked why the entire team was not present for the presentation.  Tim Riffle stated that the two most important people were.  Bill Moore noted that the head of the company is president of the AIA historical group.  He went on to say that he looked at their website and was very impressed with this company.  Steve Mershon asked what their deliverables were in regards to the public input process.  He also said that there was not much concept on usage in other areas – only the building being renovated.  Lyn Robertson stated that she disagreed and felt that they described usage of the other buildings.  Jim Siegel stated that each company will likely focus on the mansion and not on other buildings.  He agreed that these need to be included, but perhaps phased in.  Lyn Robertson said that this company seemed to teach more than the others.  She went on to say that she liked how they mentioned a working relationship over time and felt that they were very genuine.  Mary Ann Malcuit stated that this firm mentioned a long term relationship with their clients.  Bob Gardner said that this firm would have a lot of weight in the community.  He later said that one negative might be that they are a fairly rigid firm, and are not quite as flexible as some of the others.  He also stated that he has always known them to be heavily involved in urban types of development.  Kim Miles stated that they did work on the house in Lancaster.  Tim Riffle stated that Schooley Caldwell mentioned ODNR (Ohio Department of Natural Resources) funding for the site, and this makes him think that the firm did consider the grounds and not just the mansion.  He also stated that they addressed operating costs. 

Brandstelter Caroll Zofcin Inc.

Bruce Cramer stated that this firm seemed more appropriate for implementing a pool.  Lyn Robertson stated that it appeared they would be appropriate for a different type of project.  Robert Gillie stated that this firm mentioned a 90% involvement in public projects, but he saw inconsistencies in their presentation.  He said that they had only shown examples of 1-2 public areas.  Kim Miles stated that this firm did not appear strong on historic presentation.  Bob Gardner stated that a plus would be their involvement in central Ohio.  He initially saw them as the weakest choice.  Pam Satterfield stated that they had gone thru the operating costs.  Steve Mershon stated that this firm was the only one to focus on community sentiment.  He went on to say that they were willing to obtain public opinion through a phone survey, although it would cost $9500.  

Keith Myers stated that he was startled at the number of responses for the Bryn Du project.  He said that the committee was looking at some of the best talent in Ohio.  He went on to say that all points addressed in the committees discussions seemed to be right on.  Mr. Myers said that no two projects are the same and that each company will indeed need help from the community.  

Joe Hickman stated that the discussion from the group was very good.  

Seth Dorman added that his thoughts echoed Keith and Joe’s and wished the committee well in their findings.  

Clifton Crais stated that it appeared through discussion that two companies,  Brandstelter Caroll Zofcin Inc. and Lupton Rausch, were unlikely to prevail.  He suggested removing them from consideration.  The committee agreed.  Lyn Robertson asked the committee to individually write out on paper the remaining three choices in order of preference. 

All but three committee members voted that Schooley Caldwell be first choice; The other three voted this firm as their second choice.  Acock Associates was the second choice, followed by Maleca, as third.  

Keith Myers stated that it would be appropriate to call each firm and let them know the committee’s decision as soon as possible.  Joe Hickman stated that he and his staff would take care of this.  Joe Hickman also stated that a resolution with the committee’s suggestions would need to go to council.  Lyn Robertson stated that public knowledge of committee’s choice would be made after the resolutions goes to council. 

Lyn Robertson stated that sub-committees would likely be determined at the next meeting on May 28th.  She said that the believed the chosen contractor could be involved in helping to choose these committees.  

Meeting adjourned at 9:05 p.m.

Bryn Du Minutes April 23, 2003

Bryn Du Advisory Committee II/Minutes

April 23, 2003 7:00 p.m.

  

Attendees included:

Clifton Crais, Bob Gardner, Robert Gardner, Robert Gillie, Joe Hickman, Mary Malcui, Steve Mershon, Kim Miles, Candi Moore, Jurgen Pape, Tim Riffle, Lyn Robertson, Pam Satterfield, Jim Siegel, Bill York, Ginny Sharkey, Catherine and Chuck Brubaker, Jackie Gingrich. 

Councilmember Robertson began by stating that five consulting companies offered proposals.  At the next meeting on May 14th, Manager Hickman has invited these companies to present presentations.  She also stated that the village office has received numerous calls asking if hiking/walking are permitted on the grounds now?  She stated that perhaps committee members could discuss this and she could take any recommendations back to Village Council. 

Catherine Brubaker inquired on the OSHA requirements before the committee could look at the exact uses of the facility.  Councilmember Robertson stated that the consultants would be looking closely at these requirements and regulations.  She also stated that there are some current potential uses without needing to know the regulations.  

Pam Satterfield passed out a compilation of 142 comment cards with suggestions collected at the Bryn Du open house and through emails.  Committee members spent time looking over these suggestions.  

Catherine Brubaker stated that she is interested in seeing the facility possibly being used as a senior center.  She stated that she and her husband are from the Bexley area and that there is a facility there that has many similarities to the Bryn Du Mansion.  The Jeffrey Mansion in Bexley was renovated by the city government.  

Jackie Gingrich proposed studying facilities like the Jeffrey Mansion in Bexley.  Tim Riffle stated that a study of Dublin, Lancaster, and Bexley facilities has already been done and is available on the web-site.  Councilmember Robertson stated that perhaps different facilities could be studied in a sub-committee.

Committee members spent time reviewing the following five proposals:

Acock Associates Architects

Brandstelter Caroll Zofcin Inc.

David Benjamin Meleca

Lupton Rausch

Schooley Caldwell Associates

Bob Gardner wanted to clarify to committee members that each proposal includes just design/architectural work.  

Tim Riffle stated that design teams are not normally broken up.  You are not able to pick and choose different companies for different jobs; The proposals are part of a package.  He also suggested trying to keep the business local if at all possible.  He stated some concern if the company is located more than one half hour away from the facility. 

Councilmember Moore stated that each consultant company says they are teamed up with a financial person.  

Steve Mershon stated that there has been no focus on the disposal option by the consultants.  

Bill York asked what the consultant budget was.  Councilmember Robertson believed it to be $25,000-$30,000.  

Ginny Sharkey asked that Manager Hickman be in contact with prospected consultants in regards to their presentation on May 14th.  She thought that it may be beneficial to mention to them that the committee is interested in hearing about their financial plan on how funding for the renovations can be accomplished.  

Councilmember Robertson wished to address the committee in regards to temporary usage for the facility.  She stated that Manager Hickman has been contacted about possible current uses.  Committee members were concerned about liability for the village government.  Some committee members stated that use now would be jumping too far ahead.  Steve Mershon suggested that perhaps the committee should leave any usage decisions up to village council for the remainder of the year.  Councilmember Moore stated that the property is included in the village’s overall liability policy.  Many committee members stated that they would be apprehensive to allow any use other than the front lawn area.  Councilmember Moore stated that perhaps some official village activities could take place with supervision.  

Committee members were specifically concerned with safety issues regarding cisterns in the rear of barn and the pool covers safety.  Ginny Sharkey stated that at Saturday’s open house she witnessed a boy walking on top of the cover.  Councilmember Robertson asked that Manager Hickman be made aware of these concerns.  

Some suggestions for use this year included a community Memorial Day picnic, use during the Granville 4th of July, and various fundraisers.  

Catherine Brubaker wished to know if it was possible to hold committee meetings at the Mansion.  She felt this would give committee members a better feel for the facility’s possible uses.  It was not known if there is adequate electricity or seating.  

Tim Riffle clarified that the green space purchased by village township is not supposed to be used for anything other than walking.  Committee members wished to research this to find out exact uses. 

Rob Gilley inquired on what kind of income comes from the use of the polo fields.  Councilmember Moore stated that they currently maintain the lawn.  

It was decided by committee members that it is too early to establish sub-committees.  

Meeting adjourned at 8:25p.m.
