COMMITTEE REPORTS
Development Commission -Councilmember Malcuit reported on the
Development Commission meeting of October 26, 1988.
A joint hearing of the Development Commission and the Board
of Zoning and Building Appeals was held on the Kennedy request to
split a parcel of land known as 1125 Newark- Granville Road (OSD),
and a variance to the required five acres in that district for
one of the two lots. The request was approved.
Douglas Haynes, representing McDonald' s, made a preliminary
presentation to the Development Commission and emphasized again,
how important a high rise sign would be to the business and to
sales. Mr. Haynes distributed among members of the Development
Commission booklets depicting various designs of existing
McDonald' s structures. Mr. Haynes still wanted some indication
that their plans would be approved by the Development Commission.
He brought with him Mr. Kessler of the Kessler Sign Company. Also
present was Paul Kent, who made a brief statement. Ms. Malcuit
said there were a lot of citizens present to hear Mr. Haynes' s
presentation even though no hearing had been scheduled. They
asked a lot of questions and most of them were answered by Mr.
Haynes. She said most of the negative comments were in regards to
the McDonald' s proposed sign.
Other applications approved by the Development Commission
were more of the garden variety type and Ms. Malcuit did not
elaborate on them. Ms. Malcuit said the Orr' s came to the meeting
but left before the Commission could talk with them. The Commission
would still like to talk with the Orr' s regarding their plans
for some of their other properties in the Village Residential
District.
Recreation Commission -Councilmember Hughes reported on the
recent Recreation Commission meeting. He said two members
resigned. President Frank Boffa, has been upset with the lack
of attendance at the meetings. They are now looking for two
members to replace the ones that resigned. Mr. Hughes said the
Recreation Commission is happy about the Thomas J. Evans Foundation
buying the parcel of land next to the Wildwood Park property
off West Broadway. The Commission had set aside $4, 000 to
purchase this property, and now that The Thomas J. Evans Foundation
has purchased the parcel and are planning to lease it to the
Village, they will not have to expend that money. Winter prograMs
are now being organized. They are also pleased with the increase
in attendance at the Middle School and Granville High School
dances.
