Next to speak was Andrew Stoner dba Stoner' s Fruit &Vegetable
Stand, located on a vacant piece of property off of Newark-
Granville Road between Jones Road and Cherry Valley Road. Mr.
Stoner explained that he leased the property from William Wright
for two years. Last year (prior to the property being annexed
into the Village),he was unable to operate his stand due to the
drought. He asked Village Council to allow him to continue his
business this season. Mr. Stoner stated many people from the
Village and township have expressed their support on his behalf
to continue his operation of the fruit and vegetable stand at
that location. Mr. Stoner said he would look for a more suitable
location for next season.
Discussion followed among members of Council. Consensus of
Council was to put the notice from Zoning Inspector Mark
Zarbaugh to Mr. Stoner on hold, and make a decision on this
matter by the next Village Council Meeting.
Brenda Mix commented that she has noticed how hard the
Stoner' s have worked on the property. She made the suggestion
that if a seasonal permit is issued to Mr. Stoner, then a
photograph be taken about what is there at that location and
require a statement from Mr. Stoner on what kind of an operation
it is that he is operating.
Next to speak was Karen Burger of Burger &Rector Real Estate.
Speaking. on behalf of the Granville Merchants' Association, she
asked that Council not do anything about the present lighting
system in the downtown area until the Merchants' Association have
done some research on' lighting, and explored alternate options to
Ohio Power' s recent proposal. Ms. Burger said she has gathered
some material regarding little town lights, perhaps more fitting
for a New England style town. She explained that the Merchants'
Association is interested in working with Council on this matter,
and a fund raiser was mentioned as a possible way to soften the
cost of such a project.
Mayor Eisenberg assured Ms. Burger that Council will not be
making any hasty movement in that area, and that a lot of
c6mmunity input will be sought before any decision will be made in regards to changing lights in the Village.
