PUBLIC HEARINGS
A public hearing was held at this time for Ordinance No. 16-82, "An Ordinance
Accepting An Application For Annexation Of Territory And Establishing A
Certain Zoning District".
No one appeared to speak for or against this ordinance. Public hearing closed
at 7: 35 p.m.,with action held for Old Business.
The next item scheduled for a public hearing was the Twig #6 Thrift Shop
Appeal. The appeal, is to the Development Commission' s ruling to deny the
Thrift Shop' s application for a new sign. The Thrift Shop is located 120 West Broadway at and zoned Village Residential District. The shop has been operating at this address for many years.
Mayor Gallant began the hearing by reading a letter submitted by Barclay Gano, chairman of the Development Commission. The letter explains the Commission' s ruling on the Thrift Shop' s request for a new sign. A copy of that letter is hereby attached as part of these minutes.
Mrs. Hazel Hill was present to represent the Thrift Shop in their appeal. She presented for Council' s review a rendering of the Thrift Shop, showing the newly constructed entryw-ay addition. She pointed out that by constructing this addition the space where the old sign had been located norlonger exists. A photograph of the proposed new sign was also submitted for review. The sign would be placed on a post or pole approximately eight (8) feet from the ground on the east side, near the front entrance of the shop.
During review and discussion, members expressed concern in setting a prece- dent if the appeal would be granted. They also felt that the Thrift Shop' s situation was a special case and spoke favorably to granting the appeal.
Law Director, Robert N. Drake commented that he hoped this would be the last decision made on the old sign code. However, approving this particular appeal would not necessarily amount to carte blanche in possible future appeals.

Mayor Thomas F. Gallant
Granville Village Council
P. 0. Box 514
Granville, Ohio 43023
Dear Mayor Gallant:
At its meeting of· April 8, 1982, the Granville Development Commission
rejected the application of Twig #6 for a free standing sign at its
Thrift Shop at 120 West Broadway. The application was denied in
accordance with Section 43.5 of the Zoning Ordinance, which states
R-Districts -Signs Prohibited: No display signs, except those
exempted, 'shall be permitted in any RLDi'strict. "
It was pointed out that the existing sign, a black wall sign with
white letters, required no approval since it has existed for many years under the grandfather clause.
Very truly yours,r)
Barclay P. Ga.Ao, Chatitman
