Larry Huey, 129 West College Street, requested that something be
done officially about the traffic on West College Street. He
contended that the speeds on West College Street were
outrageous nd that something had to be done. Mr. Huey did not
feel that this was a student problem, but rather the street
seems to encourage people to speed.
Mayor Eisenberg asked Manager Plunkett how the request
could be dealt with in an official manner.
Manager Plunkett said that the Police Department have
patrolled the area more than once a month. Chief Cartnal stated
that no matter where the police cruiser is parked it is in plain
sight which automatically slows people down. Mr. Plunkett
stated that ODOT' s traffic rules dictate that stop signs cannot
be used to regulate the speed of traffic. Mr. Plunkett also
reported that speed signs have been ordered for this area.
Vice Mayor Schnaidt stated that he would be in favor of a
stop sign perhaps on a trial basis.
Councilmember Hughes stated he would rather see optional
speed signs first.
Mayor Eisenberg suggested that the speed signs be given a
thirty day trial and if that' s not successful then Council will
consider other measures.
COMMITTEE REPORTS
Development Commission -Councilmember Malcuit reported on the
August 23, 1989 meeting. At that meeting the Commission debated.
the Granville Golf Course request for four signs. Two of the
signs were stone piers, which were approved. Approval of the sign
for the old clubhouse was contingent upon a zoning change.
Approval of the fourth sign (four foot from the sidewalk),
was tabled until an accurate definition of a public right-of-way
could be presented.
Drew McFarland' s application to install a sign for his law
practice, at 120-1/2 East Broadway was approved, and an application
submitted by Ann Schellens, to install a wrought iron
railing at 136-1/2 N. Mulberry was also approved.
Improvement Board -
Bill Chambers
Discussion of an Appropriate Memorial for
Members of the Improvement Board presented their suggestions for
an appropriate memorial for Bill Chambers. Marc Brockman said
there were two areas pf great interest to Mr. Chambers. They
were: Old Colony Burial grounds, and the area on East College
street currently vacant. He suggested something more than just planting a tree in this area.

Mayor Eisenberg commented that several persons have
suggested renaming the Opera House Park to the Bill Chambers
Memorial Park. Members of the Improvement Board had discussed
this suggestion, but felt that the Opera House Park would always
be remembered as the Opera House Park and felt that Bill' s
memorial should be something new, more of a quite reminder of
Bill.
Following discussion, Mayor Eisenberg asked members of the
Improvement Board if they would further discuss this matter and
come back to Council with their best recommendation. He then
thanked the members for coming to the meeting to present their
ideas.
Granville Recreation Commission -Councilmember Hughes reported
that he talked with Rod &Debby McPeek in regards to how the
Recreation Commission felt about the Licking County Park
District. At the meeting there were ten members -present, and the
matter was put to a vote. The vote was as follows: two members
abstained from voting, two voted for it, and six members were
opposed. Mr. Hughes said the main reason for voting this issue
down was the vagueness of what the Licking County Park District
was all about and the financing of such a district.
Following a brief discussion, Councilmember Morrow moved
that the Village Manager be directed to inform Judge Moore that
the Village Council would request not to be included in a County
wide Park District. Motion seconded by Vice Mayor Schnaidt.
Motion carried. This motion will be put into resolution form and
assigned a number. Please see Resolution No. 89-40.
