to try the center street parking for 60-90 days and if that doesn' t work, then
some alternate parking should be found. Mr. Blackstone acknowledged the Fire
Department' s concerns with the proosed center street parking but felt the
additional parking in this area would improve all businesses and be a benefit
to residents as well.
Mr. Blackstone then asked if the Village' s Service &Utilities Director
Ralph Blackstone would review his proposed plan for center street parking.«
Ralph Blackstone reviewed his proposal for center street parking as outl ined in a
drawing previously distributed. to members of Council. He said to implement
this plan on a trial basis would cost $5.00, and if the Village were to buy
ground in an available area and make it suitable for parking it would cost
around $175,000. (A copy of Mr. Blackstone' s drawing is hereby attached)
Steve Cartnal, Sergeant, Granville Police Department commented that center
street parking might possibly hinder the Fire Department but felt the plan should
be tried because the Village needs the additional parking.
Ralph Blackstone also distributed copies of a plan presented to him by Mr. Don
Young. The plan presents ideas where the Village could pick up additional parking
spaces by making a few streets one- way and using diagonal parking instead of
parallel parking. (A copy of that plan is hereby attached as part of these minutes)
Mr. Young was present for the meeting to answer any questions that Council others might have, and stated that he or was not recommending that the plan be imple- mented but rather an idea to create more parking.
A lengthy question and answer session followed. Many questions and concerns were raised during this session. and the general agreement was that a detailed scaled
drawing be drafted of the proposed center street parking showing a true picture
of the relative spaces it would provide and working out questions ando/r concerns raised this evening.
Councilmember Eisenberg offered to make the scaled drawing if Ralph Blackstone would work with him on measurements.
Barbara Ripko, President of the Merchants Association and Bank Manager of the BancOhio branch in Granville, asked if the Merchants Association could have a
copy of the final detailed drawing prior to Council taking any action. A copy of the finished drawing will be provided for the Merchants Association when completed.
Mayor Gallant, thanked those who appeared this evening on the proposed center street parking and for their input to the discussion. He invited interested per- spoonsesd tocerneteturrn in two weeks when Council will consider some action on the pro- street parking.
