Development Commission -Councilmember Avery reported on the Commission's
meeting of July 25, 1985. At that meeting, the following
applications were reviewed and acted upon: Mr. &Mrs. Robert Kent's
final platting of the lot subdivision known as "Granville Woods",
was approved; Louis G. Reifschneider's written application for a
Conditional Use Permit was received and a public hearing scheduled
for August 22, 1985, at 8:00 p.m.;Mr. Price of G.B. Price
Enterprises, Inc.,resubmitted his application for a temporary sign
permit. The Commission reversed their previous decision and the
temporary sign permit was granted. Mr. McClain of The Jerry McClain
Co.,removed his sign for which no permit was granted. Mr. McClain's
Sign Permit Application was reviewed by the Commission and was considered
to be a temporary sign. Mr. McClain agreed to reduce the
proposed sign to the required limits. The permit was approved subject
to the size reduction. Denison University's application to rebuild
a non- conforming garage damaged this spring, was approved.
Also, Mr. &Mrs. Roy Seil's application to build a new garage was
approved. An application submitted by the Granville Board of
Education for a Sign Permit was tabled and the application referred
to the Law Director for an opinion as to whether the Board of
Education would be exempted from the requirements of the Sign Ordinance.
Finally, Drs. Raker and Karaffa's application requesting a
modification to the parking requirements listed in the Granville
Zoning Ordinance for their lot on South Main St.,and a preliminary
plan for the lot was submitted with the request, for two 2-story
structures with a total of 4800 square feet of space. The plan can
come up with 9 possibly 10 parking spaces and the zoning ordinance
requires a minimum of 12 parking spaces, assuming that the structures
would be business type office space. The request was denied.
Following Mr. Avery's report a brief informal discussion among mem- bers of Council and Dr. Karaffa was conducted.
Mayor Gallant asked at this time if there were three members of
Council that wished to hear Drs. Karaffa and Raker's appeal.Members,
after a brief discussion unanimously approved hearing the appeal.
Dr. Karaffa spoke at this time and stated that he and Dr. Raker
have had an architect go over the existing structure at 136 S.
Main Street, and opinion was that nothing could be done to save the
structure. Dr. Karaffa commented that they had to consider what
could be constructed on the lot that would be cost effective. To
reduce the proposed structures in size, would reduce the cost
effectiveness of the project.
Members reviewed the proposed drawing of the plan and a question and answer session followed.

Some members felt that if the rules were bent, then it would set
a precedent. They could find no real justification in allowing
less parking spaces than the zoning ordinance requires, and; if
anything, they would like to see more for that size structure.
It was felt that by approving less it would only add to the problem
of adequate parking in the Village.
Councilmember Schnaidt moved that Council deny the appeal and ask
that Drs. Karaffa and Raker consider revising their plan to provid
more parking. Motion seconded by Vice Mayor Davison. Motion
Ordinance No. 15-85, " An Ordinance To Amend Ordinance No. 36-84
And Appropriate Funds For Operating Expenses In The General Fund",
was moved for adoption by Councilmember Rader. Motion seconded by
Councilmember Eisenberg. Roll call vote: Radery-es, Eisenbergy-es,
Averyy-es, Schnaidty-es, Davisony-es, Garretty-es, Gallanty-es.
Seven yes votes. Motion carried. Ordinance No. 15-84 duly adopted.
Councilmember Schnaidt commented that he would like to discuss some
of the items mentioned in the Manager's memo this week.
Nye Lot -Manager Plunkett's recommendation was to have the lot
appraised so that a minimum price could be specified, and; advertise
for sealed bids for the sale of the property.
Discussion commenced and Councilmember Schnaidt felt that the
property could become very valuable to the community in the future.
He felt that the property should not be offered for sale at the
present time. Vice Mayor Davison said the lot could be left for
green space area. It was noted that if the lot were left just grass
then it would have to be fenced because of the storm sewer underneath.
Law Director Drake commented that to build on the property
would require a variance, and; because of the sewer going back to
the phone pole there would not be a lot of room there to build.
Consensus of members was to leave the property as is and directed
Manager Plunkett to talk with the Schlicher's to see if they would
be interested in leasing the property. If the Schlicher's are interested
then an agreement can be drafted and the Manager can come back to Council for the authorization to enter into an agreement with the Schlicher's.
Hilengreen -Manager Plunkett said he sent a letter to Mr. Price advising him that he has recommended to the Village Council and
to the Development Commission that the subdivision not be accepted
on a piecemeal basis, and; that the subdivision be accepted only when all items including water and sewer installations are complete. Mr. Plunkett said the letter advised Mr. Price that the drive to the water booster station be asphalted as designed by Mr. Price's engineer, and approved by the Village's engineer. Also, that the operation, maintenance and insurance of the booster station is the responsibility of the Developer, until it is owned by the Village.

Councilmember Schnaidt asked several questions with regard to the road into the subdivision, and the secondary road. He siad
he has heard that there has been problems with the road already. Manager Plunkett stated that a cut in the road has been made
and that a section will need to be replaced. The road into the
condominium area is a private road, owned by the Condominium
Association and that something would have to be agreed on with them if the Fire Department felt the road is unacceptable.
