further explained that McDonald' s would prefer to be part of the
Village both in spirit and annexation. Mr. Gordon then introduced
Douglas Haynes, Attorney for the McDonald chain, for this
Mr. Haynes, attorney for the McDonald' s 256 stores in the
ColumbusD/ayton area, with a regional office in Westerville. Mr.
Haynes said one of his jobs is to determine whether an area has
potential for one of the McDonald' s chains. He then distributed
to Council copies of McDonald' s preliminary site layout showing
the unit' s points of egress and ingress, directional signs.
parking, etc..Mr. Haynes also stressed the necessity of a
freeway sign so that potential customers of McDonald' s would have
enough time to make an exit. He explained that a good bit of time
and effort was taken to make a survey on signs, and their people
have found that the high rise yellow arches gives travelers
adequate time to exit a freeway. Mr. Haynes said following an
extensive survey on this type of sign, McDonald' s saw a 40%
increase in their business because the yellow arch is one people
are most familiar with.
Councilmember Morrow asked Mr. Haynes how high the McDonald
high rise sign would be. Mr. Haynes said typically the arch is 20
feet high and 20 feet wide on a 90 foot pole.
Mayor Eisenberg asked if the same results couldn' t be
accomplished with billboard signs.
Responding, Mr. Haynes said the survey indicated that it
was hard for travelers to pick up on a billboard and read exit
numbers in time to make that decision.
Councilmember Malcuit asked Mr. Haynes if he had seen the
McDonald' s in Freeport,144&2, or Hudson, Ohio. Mr. Haynes said
he was not familiar with either store, as they were out of his
Mayor Eisenberg said that the sign is a question of
aesthetics, and that McDonald' s would probably go with at least
two rounds of public hearings on this matter, and ultimately the
people of the Village would decide on the issue. He further
stated that the Development Commission would need to approve the
McDonald' s plans before annexation could occur.
Following a lengthy question and answer session between
Council and Mr. Haynes, it was suggested to Mr. Haynes that a
colored rendering of McDonald' s plans be submitted to the
Development Commission. It was also suggested that they might
display a rendering in the public library to garner support of
the Village citizenry. It was also suggested that Mr. Haynes ask
the Development Commission members present this evening how soon
he could meet with them.
Mr. Haynes thanked everyone for their time, suggestions
and input.

Development Commission -Councilmember Malcuit reported on the
Commission' s meeting of September 28, 1988. Ms. Malcuit reported
that the Ankele' s Flowers request to relocate at 120 West
Broadway (formerly know as the Thrift Shop), was approved. Ms.
Malcuit commented that members already had the minutes of the
meeting so she would not elaborate on the garden variety type
approvals. Ms. Malcuit did mention that members discussed Dr.
Karaffa' s request to convert office space area to an apartment in
his combination apartmenot/ffice structure building located on
South Main and Elm Streets. The Commission needed more information
before making a decision on the request. A joint meeting of
the Development Commission and the Board of Zoning &Building
Appeals was set for October 26, 1988, to consider a request to
subdivide a parcel of land (1125 Newark-Granville Road) and a
variance on a request submitted by Dr. William J. Kennedy and
Frances J. Kennedy. Other items discussed was a suggestion that
the Commission write to the Licking County Commissioners on their
feelings about the annexation. Mr. Davison will write a letter
indicating the Commission' s support of the annexation.

he, Manager Plunkett, Vice Mayor Schnaidt, Jim Hoekstra, Police
Sergeant, and a Denison student group, met and had an informal
meeting this week. Mr. Eisenberg said they had a friendly
discussion and exchange of ideas to improve town and gown
relations. Mr. Eisenberg said the students felt that the Village
has become more repressive, and they were made aware of how
residents feel and that residents were not going to accept
unacceptable behavior. Mr. Eisenberg said there was a good
exchange of views at the meeting.

distributed to members for review before taking action on this
ordinance. Members of Council were in agreement with this
suggestion. Ordinance No. 10-88 postponed until the meeting of
