Ordinance No. 19-91, "An Ordinance To Vary The Road Width And
Storm Sewer Standards In The Farmington Planned Unit
Development."
James Gordon, Attorney, of the firm Morrow, Gordon, and Byrd,
appeared this evening to represent his client William Wright,
owner and developer of the proposed Farmington Subdivision. Mr.
Gordon spoke on behalf of Ordinance No. 19-91 which varies the
Village of Granville' s road widths and storm sewer regulations
for Farmington as recommended by the Granville Planning
Commission.
Mr. Gordon spoke as well, about a new concept sweeping the country, where primary concerns in subdivisions are directed to
the quality of life for the people who will live in these
subdivisions rather than for the motor vehicle. He circulated
among members of Council copies of excerpts from "Residential
STREETS", explaining this concept. He read specific sections materials distributed. of He agreed that the variances were not permissible according to the Village' s Subdivision Regulations,
but asked Village Council to depart from those in a sense to catch up with how subdivisions should be. He said it' s something quite different than Granville has visioned. He noted that very few people in Granville live on a 31' roadway other than Broadway. He asked that Village Council to preserve a little of
what Granville is and felt the variances recommended by the

Planning Commission to have merit. He noted that the Planning
Commission had expressed concerns about filling that much area
with asphalt and that it was still the objective to make homes in
the subdivision affordable. Copies of the material Mr. Gordon
distributed are attached as part of these minutes.
Mayor Eisenberg then asked Mr. Gordon if the Farmington·
Engineer might point out on the Farmington plat drawing, mounted
on the easel, the varied road widths and swales as they are
listed in Ordinance No. 19-81.
Nelson Kohman, Engineer for the Farmington Ddvelopment, went
to the plat drawing mounted on an easel and pointed out the areas
as requested. He then offered to answer any questions members of
Council might have.
Jack Lucks owner of approximately 200 acres north of the
proposed Farmington Subdivision, stated that he had a 25%
interest in the Farmington Subdivision from the standpoint of
construction. He stated that he was one of the builders being
considered to construct Farmington. He spoke in favor of Village
Council adopting the ordinance. He felt Farmington was one of the
most innovative ideas to happen to Granville in years. He too,
distributed copies of an article from the "TIMES"magazine about
modern development ideas to minimize suburban sprawl. Mr. Lucks
said, " we've paved 4,400,000 miles of streets in American, four
times to the moon and back, making way for the automobile and the
heck with people."
Rick Beck, Fire Chief, Granville Volunteer Fire Department,
showed a video taken with road widths the way they are now on
Derwyn Del Way and at the top of Bryn Du Drive in Bryn Du
Subdivision. Mr. Beck stated that the intent of the tape was for
his people to see how they could maneuver these streets in an
emergency. After showing the tape, Mr. Beck noted that Burg
Street was a nightmare as well. He asked Village Council that
they give the Fire Department room to get their trucks in so they -
could do what they're trained to do.
Public hearing on this ordinance closed at 7:48 p.m.

COMMITTEE REPORTS
Charter Review Commission
Manager Plunkett asked members of Council if they wished to put
amendments as they stand, on the November ballot. Deadline for
submittal to the Board of Elections this year will be August 22nd, at 4: 00 p.m. Mr. Plunkett recommended this matter be dealt
with as timely as possible to make sure that deadline was met.
Councilmember Marshall noted the Manager' s recent the Mayor' memo on s Court issue, and asked if Council might deal with
that at the same time. Manager Plunkett said Mayor' s Court was a separate issue and the Ohio Revised Code provides Council latitude to deal with that.
Following a brief discussion, Manager Plunkett was directed
to draft the necessary legislation on the recommended Charter amendments for the next regular meeting.
Mayor Eisenberg asked members of Council to read over very carefully the recommended Charter amendments, and convey any concerns or opinions they might have on the recommend amendments
to Manager Plunkett before the next regular meeting. Mayor Eisenberg also recommended that some appropriate means of expressing Village Council' s gratitude to members of the Charter Review Commission will be done in the near future as well.

Planning Commission' s meeting of June 20th. Mr. Marshall stated
that the applications reviewed and approved were pretty straight

would require a permit. Mr. Marshall said the Village' s Law
Director has been asked to render an opinion on the matter.

Utilities Committee met last week and discussed the need for a

facility.

Curbside Recycling
Members of Council discussed the Curbside Recycling Committee' s
recommendation to seek bids from one hauler to pick up trash and
recyclable items. Members were divided about an exclusive
contract however.
Sally Hannahs, 423 East College, spoke against an exclusive
contract.
Denise Crews, Licking County Sanitary Engineer, was present
to answer questions. Mr. Crews first congratulated the Curbside
Recycling Committee on doing a wonderful job. She disagreed with
discontinuing spring clean- up, she thought Granville would still
need to provide that service. She also noted that yard waste
would be banned in 1994. Ms. Crews announced that state grant
money is available to aid local governments in setting up
recycling programs, but must be applied for by August 30th. The
grant can be used to help with the education, public awareness,
equipment, liability insurance, travel expenses and staffing (for
one year). Ms. Crews also noted that Council would need a letter
of support from the Solid Waste District and must be received by
July 31st.
Jack King of Waste Management was on hand and well as Dave
Jenkins of Rumpke to offer their service, and each elaborated on
what their company could provide. Rumpke, based in Cincinnati
might be out of the running since they do not have a certified
landfill.
Following a lengthy deliberation, the Curbside Recycling
Committee was asked to help with bids specifications so that the
Village could solicit bids from interested haulers with or
without exclusive contracts.
