Mr. John J. Cassell, representing St. Luke' s Episcopal Church, appeared this evening to express concerns of the Church in regards Plan approved to the Opera House Park by Council in principal at the regular meeting of April 20th. Concerns expressed were:
Plantings on the east side of the park not only will block the view of St. Luke' s but block the main fire door, and; long established fire alley - will disappear in the new park.
Has the Park Plan been approved by the Fire Department for safety?
Planned maintenance and repair for the Church' s west wall will be difficult to accomplish when the new plantings along that side are in place, and; would the Church be responsible if plantings would be destroyed, due to the heavy equipment needed to make repairs?
The Church had previously indicated their preference to a grassy area with plantings and walkways used sparingly. The plan indicates a feeling of look, but don' t step off the path. 1

A request that Council rescind their previous motion to put the project in
the hands of the Opera House Park Improvement Committee, which will implement
a plan the Church is opposed to and that Council consider an
alternative that would be more satisfactory to St. Luke' s.
Objection to the Committee handl ing funds for the project rather than the
Village treasury. (It was explained to Mr. Cassell that the Granville
Foundation has offered to be custodian of any park funds)
It was further noted, that the Opera House Park Improvement Committee was appointed by Council, therefore accountable to Council.
Rev. Edward Burdick, St. Luke' s Episcopal Church, also appeared to speak this
evening regarding the recent meeting of the Park Committee. As an observer,
he still was not clear as to what the park' s specifications were, indicating
that a great deal of the information was vague. Finally, Rev. Burdick felt
that St. Luke' s was being treated differently than the other Churches on the Village Square. He said the option for the Church to build an eductional
building some day was not offered to St. Luke' s. He also felt that from St. Luke' someone s should be involved on the committee.
A letter Was submitted outlining comments made this evening, the church' s position, objections and concerns. Mayor Gallant directed the Clerk to duplicate the letter for members of Council and turn the original over to the Opera House Park Improvement Committee. A( copy of that letter is attached) Following a lengthy discussion, a direction was made that Mr. Chambers
give 24 hour notice of any forthcoming meeting of the Park Committee, and that Rev. Burdick be notified of any future meetings.

Opera House Park Improvement Committee -Vice Mayor Davison stated that he was
sorry to hear the kind of input received tonight, and felt that ample time was given to get input. He said the Committee has been working very hard to get
the park underway and this kind of input could overturn all the work done to
date. He said the Committee welcomes input, but the project has to move forward and unfortunately not to everyone' s liking.
The next stage on the park project is to get prices on grading and drain tile
St. Luke' s drains).He said St. Luke' s architect has been notified that they will be responsible for the tiles.

Request For Water &Sewer Service -Charles Kimsey
Mr. Charles Kimsey appeared this evening to appeal and to Council for Village water sewer service for a parcel of land on Weaver Drive. He said he has a pur- chase option on a two and a half acre parcel, and is interested in developing
a 25,000 square foot shopping center on the property. Mr. Kimsey said he was not opposed to annexation to the Village if that' s what is needed to obtain Village water and sewer service, but felt he could not be the agent to iniate the petition. Mr. Kimsey stated further, that he needs to make a capital in- vestment before the end of the calendar year and was operating under a time constraint and could not wait for annexation. The proposed shopping center would have to be in operation before the end of the year. He said he would be willing to give the Village $20,000.00 up front, if he could get the water and sewer service within the time frame needed.
Mr. Kimsey said he has not approached the Township about his proposal, but if he has to drill wells and apply to the EPA for an aeration system, he would not be in favor of annexation.
Mr. Robert Teusher,Joseph Baker &Associates, presented a rough architectural sketch of Mr. Kimsey' s proposed shopping center on Weaver Drive. During discussion, Councilmember Avery pointed out that it was quite clear that the Village could not provide sewer and water without annexation, and that a lot depends on the property owners in that area. Mayor Gallant commented that
developed. Councilmember Schnaidt commented that he would like to encourage
Council has discussed the advantages of annexing this area, not only for tax revenues but also the opportunity to have some say in how the area would be
the residents in this area to seek annexation to the Village. Village Manager, Douglas Plunkett commented that he has talked with a few of the property owners who are interested, but none are willing to iniate the petition. Following a lengthy question and answer session, Mayor Gallant appointed an ad hoc annexation committee to see what action could be taken to encourage annexation in this area. Those appointed to the annexation committee: Council- member Schnaidt, Vice Mayor Davison and Councilmember Avery.
Other Items of Interest/ Business
Memorial Day Observance -Mayor Gallant stated that Ruth Sipe had contacted him Mtoemseoeriail f he would appoint a committee who would head up the planning committee for War Day Observances. She said the Daughters of Union Veterans of the Civil are disbanding this year and she was looking for some patriotic organization to take their place. She said the Daughters of Union Veterans of the Civil War have been active co-sponsors since its beginning in Granville. There would be some expenditures but very small. The County Commissioners do allocate some monies for the observance, but it would have to be a patriotic group. She did not feel that the Granville PostA-merican Legion would want to sponsor the pro-. ygeraamr obynlythehmavseel4v8es. She mentioned that the flags that they have been using every stars,so she would like to see them replaced. The only other large expense would be the printing of programs.

Gentlemen:
We must express our concerns about the plan for the Opera House
green which has been pregented to us. In previous communication
to you, we have indicated our strong preference for which would a grassy area encourage 468 interiettbn ef people. We have urged that the area be kept quite simple with plantings and walkways used aparingly. However, these are basically aesthetic concerns and reflect our personal preference.
If the scheme you propese is implemented, we see problems that
go beyond the aesthetic and pose real difficulties for us. First, the plantings along the east wall of St. Luke' s are of sufficient ;i size and proximity to us to block our main fire door. Prior to
the Opera House catastrophe, there was a fire alley between the two buildings. This alley will disappear in the new park. Also, we will soon be repairing the east wall of the building and heavy equipment needed to make the repairs will destroy the elaborate plantings described in the blueprint we have seen.
Apart from these practical problems, we are still opposed to your plan for several other seasons. If, in our long range plans, we should decide to build an educational building, we would like to exercise the same prerogative as the other corner churches who have built such buildings on Granville Village land adjacent to their main structures. If our children are to use the park, Sthte.iLruoknel'y access to it will be up or down the alley next to s and the traffic there makes this area hazardous to young enes. Finally, the' plam now in effect discourages people from interacting. Less than half the area ig grassed in and the large walkway seems to indicateL,o"ok, but don't step off the path."We are opposed to this type of park.
We are stating our objections and wish you to rescind your previous motion to put this project in the hands of a committee empowered to implement it and urge you to consider an alternative that will be more satisfactory to us.
