proposed rezonings. He showed how the proposed development plan
was in compliance with the village's newly adopted Comprehensive
Plan.
Herb and Frank Murphy Erinwood's Developers, were present
for the public hearing and offered to answer any questions
citizens or Council might have.
Brenda Mix, 1480 Newark Road, noted that sidewalks in any major
development are a means for transporting people and asked that
Village Council mandate that sidewalks be constructed in any new
development. She further noted that her home was back 90 feet
from the road centerline, and asked Council look hard on the
setbacks in the proposed development. In conclusion, she
expressed concern about the traffic on Newark Road and asked that
the speed limit be lowered.
Rees L. Dwyer, Quest International, asked about the affect of the
proposal on adjacent parcels.
Marc Shulman, 435 West College Street, asked for Council' s
consideration in lowering the speed limit on NewarkG- ranville
Road. He asked that it be lowered to 35mph or 25mph all the way
to the Newark Corporate limits, in anticipation of proposed
development along that stretch of roadway. Mr. Shulman noted that
since reconstruction of Route 16 has been completed, use of
NewarkG- ranville Road should be discouraged.
Manager Plunkett responded to Mr. Shulman's request, stating
that speed limits were not promulgated by a whim. He said the
greater the density the lower the speed limit can be. Mr.
Plunkett said the issue has come before Council previously and has been researched in great depth.
Councilmember Hughes mentioned that speed limits on Newark-
Granville Road were changed after areas were annexed. At that time, Council had the opportunity to make the entire stretch to
the Newark Corporate limits to 45mph. Some people opted to make it 50mph.
Councilmember Rader said the consensus was 50mph, but some wanted it at 55mph.
Mr. Plunkett said he believed the density restricted what Council could do then, and now. He offered to go through the
process again, but was sure that Council has already covered the issue. He noted that with the Erinwood Development proposal and Farmington right behind it, that situation may change significantly, depending on what happens.
Mr. Shulman also asked if the present sewage treatment plant could handle what would be generated by all the proposed development.

Joe Hickman, Village Utilities Director, responded and said
presently the plant is treating 400,000 gallonsd/ay, and the
plant' s capacity is 1.2 million gallonsd/ay.
1991 Granville Village Budget Proposal
Brent Bennett, representing the Granville Business and
Professional Association, appeared to ask Council about the bed
tax money collected by Licking County, and redistributed to
Granville Village. The funds are then put into the General Fund.
He asked that these funds be appropriated to a special fund in
its entirety, to be spent for its intended purpose as specified
in the original state legislation. The Association proposes, and
hopes to get approval of Council, for establishment of a separate
escrow fund that bed tax funds would go into, to be earmarked for
that purpose, and; the establishment on an on-going and permanent
committee to oversee the use of such funds.
Mayor Eisenberg said he was sure Council would be happy to
discuss the matter further with the Granville Business and
Professional Association, however, due to the heavy agenda for
this evening he suggested another time might be more appropriate.
Councilmember Malcuit asked when it might be appropriate for her to speak about her concerns.
Manager Plunkett stated that the only further action scheduled is the introduction of the budget ordinance itself.
Mayor Eisenberg suggested that changes, revisions, and modifications could be discussed at that time.

Mark Shulman repeated his request that Council consider looking
at the speed limit on NewarkG- ranville Road, and see what can be
done to lower the speed.
To clarify the speed limit issue for Mr. Shulman, Manager
Plunkett noted that speed limits are governed by the regulations
promulgated by the Ohio Department of Transportation, and the
speed limits on NewarkG- ranville Road are set in accordance with
those regulations. The speed limit can not be lowered beyond
where they are now because of the density of the housing along
NewarkG- ranville Road. The greater the density, the lower the
speed limit.
Mr. Shulman, still asked that this issue be looked into,
pointing out that New Albany expanded their 35mph speed limit all
the way to Kitzmiller Road to the east, with no additional houses
constructed there.
Russ Adams, Attorney, and member of the Granville Business and
Professional Association, appeared this evening to announce that
the GBPA decided recently that it would be a good idea to have a member come and listen to some of the Council meetings, zoning
board meetings, etc..He announced that he was elected, and to please give him a call if he can be of assistance.
Mayor Eisenberg thanked Mr. Adams.
COMMITTEE REPORTS
Street Committee -Councilmember Rader, Chairman of the committee, reported that the Street Committee met and went over Mr. Zarbaugh's recommendations for streets improvements.
Following a lengthy debate, the committee recommended approval of a substantial number of streets for repaving to the tune of 291,000 worth. The Committee also recommended approval of Mr. Zarbaugh' s request to purchase an AMZ Magnum machine for crack sealing and pothole repairs, which he feels the payback will be in 3-12/ years. Mr. Zarbaugh promised to keep Council apprised of the machine's efficiency.
Mayor Eisenberg asked if the committee' s recommendations for street improvements and equipment are reflected in the proposed budget?Manager Plunkett responded and said yes.
Utilities Committee -Vice Mayor Morrow, Chairman, reported that the Utilities Committee met last Tuesday in Manager Plunkett' s office. The purpose of the meeting was to discuss the extension of the water line to Granville East out NewarkG- ranville Road. A report from the village' s engineer C.F.Bird &R.J.Bull, Inc.w,as received last summer about the different phases of development along that area. Mr. Morrow noted as part of the package submitted for State Issue 2 funds, the village asked for funds to

construct the first phase of that water line, which would go out
NewarkG- ranville Road, down Cherry Valley to the intersection of
SR16, back to Westgate and then back over to NewarkG- ranville
Road. The second item of discussion, will be brought up in either
the first or second meeting of January (depending upon the timing
of the engineering work to be done), for Council to discuss the
pros and cons of extending the sewer line east from its existing
location on NewarkG- ranville Road, ando/r putting in a main trunk
line to extend from the existing sewer plant along the bike path,
parallel to the north side of the expressway to the intersection
of Cherry Valley and SR16. The Committee realizes putting the
major trunk line in would be a significant cost to the village
probably equal to the value of the existing sewer plant).
Council will have to give that quite a bit thought, and more
information needs to be collected before they can consider the
issue. The Committee will be back to Council on the first or
second meeting in January to explore this issue further.
Recreation Commission -Councilmember Hughes reported that the
Granville Recreation Commission met last night and is still
having problems finding areas for new baseball facilities for
next year, because of the new high school being constructed. The
Commission has a group of people looking at many different
parcels of land. Councilmember Rader said he had land. Mr. Hughes
said he would talk with Mr. Rader at the end of the meeting. Mr.
Hughes continued, and said the Commission is still trying to get
the rest-rooms put in at Wildwood Park. The project has been
delayed because all the contractors contacted were too busy to do
the job, so they are still working on that. Bids have been taken
to modify the soccer fields to baseball fields for next spring.
Mr. Hughes said evidently the landscapers are all too busy as well.
Public Safety Review Commission Councilmember Hughes reported
that the Commission met November 29th, but he was not able to attend the meeting. Basically, it was an organizational meeting. Tom Gallant who chairs that commission basically said it was expressed that the problem has not been with the nature of the agreement between Denison and the village, but rather with the interpretation and implementation. The next meeting will be Friday, December 7th, at 2:30 p.m.,at the Granville Fire Department if anyone is interested in going. A proposal will be submitted to Council by mid- January.

PAR Group. Council needs to come to a conclusion.
Members of Council and Manager Plunkett discussed the three

its entirety, and moved for passage by Councilmember Hughes. Motion seconded by Councilmember Marshall. Discussion: Manager
Plunkett stated that the village received four proposals, and
that Rinehart- Walters- Danner- Thompson was the lowest. He added
that he and Dave Lamneck (who is knowledgeable in this field),
went through the bids, and he concurs that the Request for
Proposal for liability was light on coverage (one million)a,nd in his opinion, because of the proximity of Franklin County, the village should increase the coverage to at least (two million).
The cost of that additional million dollars of coverage would be in excess of $7,000, greater than the $36,000 proposed for a total of $43,000. The rise with the other insurance companies would be in the same vicinity. Mr. Plunkett recommended that Council buy the additional coverage. He mentioned that the
coverage includes public officials liability, and with the zoning issues coming before Council fast and furious in the next couple years, Council might want to have that coverage as individuals. Consensus of Council agreed with Mr. Plunkett' s recommendation. Motion on the question carried. Resolution No. 90-47 duly passed.
