Development Commission -Councilmember Malcuit reported that the
continued hearing on the proposed Bryn Du Woods development was
held January 25, 1989, at the Baptist Church. At that meeting
Mr. Mcelain withdrew his application, so the hearing ended up in
a general discussion between citizens and Mr. McClain. Mr.
Mcelain plans to resubmit his proposal, and a hearing was
scheduled on that for April 12, 1989, to be held in the Baptist
Church. Ms. Malcuit said many concerns were voiced at the January
25th meeting. One of which was that Mr. McClain wait until the
new Master Plan Update was completed. Mr. Mcelain did not want to
wait, stating that it was the right time to go forward on the
project since water and sewer service is available.
A petition was circulated at the meeting among citizens,
which was presented to Council this evening.
Members of Council commended the Development Commission on
the way the hearings were conducted. Also, that citizens asked
very rational questions.
Comprehensive Planning Committee -Councilmember Morrow reported
that the Comprehensive Planning Committee have been meeting on
Sundays attempting to prepare a proposal. He commended Lee
Larson and Ben Mason for spearheading the project, now completed.
Mr. Morrow said he believes the proposal is comprehensive in
nature and that it answers a lot of concerns voiced by citizens.
Mr. Morrow then recommended to Village Council and the Granville
Township Trustees that the completed Request For Proposal be
approved by each governing body and recommended that it be
submitted for bid.
Members of Council commended the Committee on the thoroughness
and speed in which they completed their charge.
During discussion, concerns were voiced about the cost of
the project and how much the Township would be willing to
contribute to the project.
Councilmember Morrow stated that the Village is not at that
point yet. If bids do come back at 75, 000 then Council will have
to sit down and negotiate with the Township Trustees. He said
the Committee talked about additional sources, perhaps even
solicit for funding. He said the mandate is clear from the
residents here that they want a good planner and plan.
Councilmember Morrow requested that the Committee stay in
tact and work with the planner through to its completion.
Councilmember Avery asked if the Committee wanted to be part
of the selection process.
Councilmember Morrow felt that the Committee could help in
the selection.
