Phyllis Greene, spokesperson for the Granville Committee, Recycling reported the volume of recyclables at the Center nearly doubled in the past two years. Because of this factor, and a decrease in volunteer hours, the future of the Recycling Center is uncertain. Ms. Greene submitted signatures of 460 Village and Township residents petitioning Council to initiate a curbside recycling program.
Ms. Greene asked that Village Council form a committee consisting of Village Council, Township Trustees, Granville Recycling Committee, and citizensa- tl-arge from the Village and Township to develop a curbside recycling program for Granville. Councilmember Malcuit volunteered to work on the committee if one was formed.
Betty Knoll, reported rhat it was becoming very difficult to keep the Granville Recycling Center tidy. People are dropping off lreeacvyicnlgables at the center when no attendants are there, and a mess.
Eleanor Cohen, 133 East Broadway, said she was not against recycling but would like to know more information on how a curbside recycling program would be initiated, costs, etc.

Denise Crews, Licking County Sanitary Engineer, agreed with
Granville citizens who signed the petitions, that the Village was
ready for a curbside recycling program. She concurred that
forming a committee to study the issue was a good idea. Ms. Crews
pointed out that there were all kinds of recycling programs,
including grant programs, to help defray costs of initiating such
a program. She was sure if a committee was formed to study the
issue, they could come up with a program right for Granville in
time to submit a grant application in August.
Tim Engle and Mack Finney, representatives from Johnson
Disposal (Gahanna, Ohio), congratulated the Granville Recycling
Center on receiving The Governor' s Award. They offered to work
with a committee appointed to develop a curbside recycling
program for Granville.
Vice Mayor Morrow thanked Johnson Disposal representatives
for their offer, but stated that Council was not ready to accept
proposals yet. However, he hoped they would stand by, and be
ready when that time comes. He explained the Village needs to
make the formation of a curbside recycling program as independent
as possible.
Mr. Morrow appointed Ms. Malcuit as Council' s representative
and asked that two Village residents, two Township residents, two
members of the Granville Recycling Committee, and a
representative of the Township Trustees, take the ball and run
with it, and report back to Village Council in ninety (90) days.
Mr. Morrow thanked Ms. Greene and all the members of the
Granville Recycling Center for coming in.
Copies of the petitions seeking a curbside recycling program
are attached as part of these minutes.

Mr. Wright and his counsel would first give their presentation.
Following Mr. Wright's and Mr. Smith's presentation, citizens
wishing to speak on the Farmington proposal were to give their
name, address and whether they are Village or Township residents.
Mr. Morrow asked that comments be directed to the Farmington
Development proposal itself. Council will take everything into
consideration. He asked that everyone respect each others' rights
to his/ her opinions. Finally, Village Council will not vote on
the Planning Commission' s recommendation to approve the
Farmington Development Plan at tonight's meeting. They will
continue the matter in a special meeting Wednesday, February
27th, and at that time will review and discuss the development
proposal among themselves. They will be taking no additional
comments at that time.
Bill Wright, owner and developer of the proposed Farmington
Subdivision, and Harrison Smith, Mr. Wright' s counsel, gave their
presentations. A second addendum was submitted by Mr. Wright to
reduce the total number of units from 214 to 211. Following the
presentations, comments from citizens were received. A copy of
that addendum is attached as part of these minutes, along with
the Planning Commission's recommendation to approve the
Farmington Development Plan.
Those who expressed their views, concerns, and comments on the
proposed Farmington Development Plan proposal were:
D. Farrar, 224 Bryn Du Drive, stated that she was representing
all Bryn Du Subdivision residents and most Bryn Du property lot
owners: concerns over the vagueness of Mr. Wright' s plan, impact
on the Granville school system, density, traffic, services, and
goals outlined in the Comprehensive Plan were noted.
Doug Kaiser, 1256 Newark Road, spoke in favor of approving the
Farmington Development Plan. He didn' t feel density and use was
the issue, rather the quality of life. He felt the Farmington

plan was a good plan and that Mr. Wright made a sincere effort in
going full circle, and should be commended for his effort.
Barbara Roidl, 121 Shepardson Court, expressed concern about the
density proposed in the plan. She asked that Council look at
European standards, then look more in the depth of the plan.
Dan Freytag, 1075 Newark Road, felt the Farmington proposal
violates the spirit of the Master Plan. That Farmington was the
first major test of that plan. Mr. Freytag wasn't totally happy
with the comprehensive plan, but all in all it was all right. He
held no grudge against Mr. Wright but felt there was no common
good to a more dense plan. In conclusion, Mr. Freytag was
concerned about the natural water flow during heavy rains,
cluster homes, concern over who would occupy, impact on school
system along with the other developments Erinwood, Quisenbery,
and their effect on essential services.
Lee Larson, 1625 Hankinson Road, stated that there really was a
connection to numbers and quality of life. Mr. Larson could not
accept the Farmington Development Plan proposal because of the
high density.
Michael Snyder, 125 S. Plum Street, urged Village Council to vote
against approving the Farmington Development Plan as recommended
by the Planning Commission. He recommended that the plan be sent
back to Planning Commission until is complies with Comprehensive
Plan.
Keith Ward, 121 Shepardson Court, Plan only listens with one ear,
the plan speaks to controlled growth, but Farmington is not
controlled growth. Mr. Ward said the density was too high and was
opposed to the plan.
Susan Freeman, 75 Denbigh Drive, encouraged Council to vote down
approving the Farmington Plan as recommended by the Planning
Commission. Ms. Freeman cited some of Granville' s first grade
classes are being held in the kitchen. She was opposed to the
plan because of the high density, and because the grade schools
were already too crowded.
Ann Aubourg, 526 West College, was opposed to the Farmington
plan: once the developer builds what he wants, he won't be around
to see the impact of his development.
Robert Socher, (Lot 55 Bryn Du Subdivision), currently lives in
Dublin, Ohio. Mr. Socher stated that rentals in Dublin run
approximately $400w/ith at least two children, and have caused an
1

overload in Dublin schools. Dublin now needs money to run the
schools. He questioned tax revenue generated from condominiums.
Steve Smith, 15 Donald Ross Drive, cited overload of schools, and
quality of life as his concerns with the Farmington Plan. Mr.
Smith was also concerned about road outlets into Bryn Du
Subdivision. He asked that Village Council return the Farmington
Plan back to the Planning Commission for modification and lower
the density in the plan.
Dan Pallante, 462 Newark Road, asked if the Farmington proposal
was fair to existing land owners?Land owners have expressed
their concerns repeatedly that they were opposed to the
Farmington Development Plan. Density in the proposal was almost
twice of what the new comprehensive plan asks for, therefore, in
fairness to the village majority he requested that the plan be
rejected.
Brenda Mix, 1480 Newark Road. Ms. Mix noted that surveys returned
by residentsp/roperty owners regarding what they liked about
Granville: the Master Plan suggests they like Granville because
1) small size and, (2) atmosphere. Mr. Wright needs to lower
density. She was happy that Mr. Wright added sidewalks to his
plan.
Jack Feid, 1086 Burg Street, stated that he was in favor of plan,
and recommended that it be approved. He stated that the School
District needs the tax base. Mr. Feid felt that Mr. Wright' s plan
represents a tremendous compromise on his part.
Constance Barsky, 221 E. Elm Street, stated that the plan
suggests a rate of growth that is too fast for the Village. She
recommended absorption of the development in a phased in period.
Jerry Krebs, 165 Denison Drive, stated that the Village needs
development, and that not too long ago the School Board needed
the area, development, and tax base.
Fred Hahn, 67 Pinehurst Drive, stated that there was a need for
one floor plan condos in Granville, and was in favor of plan. ipARE .
Larry Rmn-*,' Timbuk Lane, spoke in favor of plan. He supported everything Mr. Wright develops.
SaraJean Wilhelm, 202 Thresher Street, was opposed to the high density proposed in the plan, and was opposed to the plan. She
didn' t feel there was any question about quality of life, and the
plan was in gross excess of density proposed in the Comprehensive 1

Plan. If Village Council approves they will be setting a
precedent for future developments in the Village.
Mr. Morrow questioned Ms. Farrar about her statement that she
represented all property owners in Bryn Du Subdivision, and asked
if that included the Granville Golf Course Company?Ms. Farrar
stated that the Granville Golf Course Company was not included in
that representation, rather a majority of people who live there
and lot owners.
