Granville Athletic Boosters, New Burg Street

Mr. Plunkett described the proposed relocation of the Harmon Burke Field from the Granville Elementary School to the grounds of Granville High School. 1) This property is in the Institutional District in which stadiums and athletic facilities need a conditional use. They also request a (2) chainlink fence at a height of 6-- 8' for safety and protection, which would require a variance in this district. The fence would be properly landscaped or screened, and the fence will be in black or y dark green plastic-coated material. Ms. Caravana applied the criteria for conditional uses to the existing circumstances of the Athletic Boosters:

a) The proposed use is a conditional use within the zoning district and the applicable development standards of this Zoning Ordinance are met. All appropriate standards have been met.

b) The proposed use is in accordance with for the appropriate plans area and is compatible with existing land use. Such a use is in accordance with future plans for the schools.

c) The proposed use will not create an undue burden on public facilities and services, such as streets, utilities, schools, and refuse disposal. No undue burden will be placed on local services.

d) The proposed use will not be detrimental or disturbing to existing neighboring uses and will not entail a use, structure, or condition of operation that constitutes a nuisance or hazard to any persons or property. A parking lot is already there. and the schools are in need of playing fields close to their facilities. A pathway with lights on poles will be built.

The second part of the application will require a variance

for the chain link 6-8' fence. Again, the criteria for variances

were applied together:

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. A school is a unique community which requires athletic

fields, and a tall fence is necessary for security of the

property, safety precautions, and for restricted access to games.

No other type of fence would be appropriate.

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. This condition is not applicable


C) That the special conditions and circumstances do not

result from the actions of the applicant. This condition is not

applicable here.

d) That the grant of the 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 undue

privilege would be conferred.

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. The neighbors would not be affected; other

fields already exist, and there is sufficient buffer space between the school and the houses. The

fence will ensure safety.
