Marilyn Andrew, 217 West Elm Street, appeared at the meeting
regarding an anonymous complaint the Village Zoning Inspector
received about her operating a child care center in her home,
without the benefit of a permit to do so. Ms. Andrew admitted
that she watches three pre-school children during the week, and
belongs to a co-op child care group. She wanted Council to know
that she was not causing a problem in the neighborhood by her
watching the children. She further explained that within a one
block radius of where she lives there are thirty children. Some
of these children may at different times play with toys in her yard, but she doesn' t watch all these children. She further noted
1 that there is a need for more child care services in Granville.

Mayor Eisenberg explained to Ms. Andrew that she may be the
focus of attention at the moment, but there are dozens of
businesses going on in homes, which are difficult to categorize,
and Council will need to decide how best to deal with this
situation.
Councilmember Hughes recommended working on a point system,
noting that State regulations for anyone caring for five or more
children must have a permitli/cense. He too felt there was a need
in the Village for such services.
Councilmember Marshall noted that the State is concerned
about the safety of children, and the Village is concerned about
the impact on neighbors.
Vice Mayor Morrow felt the Planning Commission's input vital
on this issue and recommended that the matter be discussed during
the zoning re-write review.
Councilmember Freytag felt it would be helpful to have a
public hearing on the issue.
Mayor Eisenberg wondered if Council wasn't making a bigger
issue out of the situation than warrants, and Councilmember
Malcuit thought Council was making too much of it.
Rachel Will, 338 West Elm Street commented that the young
people who have moved into her neighborhood block are doctoring
up the older homes and doing wonderful things and she likes the
change in the neighborhood.
Councilmember Marshall pointed out that the chapter on "Home
Occupation"exists, and it would be reasonable to have a public
hearing on this chapter in light of this issue.
Following citizens comments, Council elected to hold a
special worksession on June 26th to be held jointly with the
Planning Commission to review the Home Occupation Chapter in an
effort to resolve this issue.
