Manager Plunkett responded and said the matter was to be
discussed this evening on how Village Council wishes to adopt or
proceed with the Comprehensive Plan.
Vice Mayor Morrow commented that as a member of the
Comprehensive Planning Committee, he plans to present the 1990
Draft Comprehensive Plan to Council with the suggested
modifications made by the Comprehensive Planning Committee and
request a hearing under Committee Reports.
Ben Mason, 37 Donald Ross Drive, made a comment on Mr.
Williams sign on South Main Street. He felt that in spite of all
the good intentions, the Village has ended up with a sign both
tasteless in color and design. He also made comments on the
position of the sign, feeling that it was too close to the
sidewalk and a safety hazard.
COMMITTEE REPORTS
Comprehensive Planning Committee -Vice Mayor Morrow noted the
correspondence from Lee Larson, Chairman of the Comprehensive
Planning Committee and felt the memo summed up the results of the
committee' s feelings. He then recommended the plan for adoption
with noted modifications), by the Granville Township Trustees
and Granville Village Council. Mr. Morrow further noted, that
everything in the plan is not the same for the two entities. He
felt that it was important that Village Council hold a public
hearing on the plan to get input from Village citizens. He
proposed that a public hearing be scheduled for the next regular
meeting, May 16, 1990, at 7: 30 p.m.,for public input as the
Comprehensive Plan affects the Village, and that notice of the
hearing be well publicized.
Consensus of members felt that this was a good idea. Mayor
Eisenberg asked Vice Mayor Morrow if he had a recommendation as
to whether the Comprehensive Plan should come in as a resolution
or an ordinance. Mr. Morrow said he would like to talk with the
new Law Director first to get his opinion on how the plan should
be adopted.
