ManAdYOrRe'vSieRwEePdO. RT - The Mayor' s Report for February was presented
Councilmember Hughes expressed concern about the high volume of speeding tickets. He wondered if it would be possible for the Granville Police Department to project a more friendly image. He asked if perhaps the Granville Police Department could hand out warning tickets to first time offenders for lower speeds of 101-5 mph over the posted speed limit.
Mayor Eisenberg responded that it would be hard to know where to draw the line. The majority of speed cases in court generally, are those of speeds greater that 101-5 mph over the posted speed limit. He stated his belief that Chief Cartnal would find it hard to ask his officers to enforce the law and be a good guy at the same time.

COMMITTEE REPORTS
Planning Commission -Councilmember Marshall reported on the meeting of March 7, 1991. That meeting had been devoted to a working session with Franklin B. Conaway -Land Use, Zoning and
Historic Preservation Consultant, representing Mr. &Mrs. Orville
Orr. As a result of overwhelming opposition to Mr. & rezoning Mrs. Orr' s proposal, Mr. Conaway attended the March 7th meeting to
see what might be accepted by the Planning Commission and
citizens. Mr. Marshall said a new proposal will probably be submitted in the near future.
OLD BUSINESS
Farmington
James Gordon, Attorney, on behalf of Bill Wright on the Farmington Development, said he arose with great trepidation to solicit Village Council' s reaction to a proposal slightly altered configuration for the Farmington plan. The alternate
configuration would stay within Village Council' s mandate of 175 dwelling units permitted for the Farmington Development. He distributed copies of a new drawing depicting that configuration, and explained reasons for the change. Mr. Gordon said they would seek a variance to the roads/treet specifications and approval by village engineers. The :new configuration would: increase the Hamlet Lots from 30 to 40; reduce the larger single family lots from 55 to 39, and; increase the attached single family lots condos) to 96, for a total of 175 units. A breakdown of the three parcels set aside for attached single family lots (condos), is as follows: Parcel #1 from 35 to 30 units, Parcel #2 from 35 to 36 units, and Parcel #3 from 20 to 30 units),for a total of

96. An alleyway was proposed to run through the back of the
center lots in the Hamlet area as was a one- way circle in the
development. Mr. Gordon stated four larger hillside lots would
access through a connector road to Bryn Du Drive, lots 1 through
5 would face Bryn Du Drive, and a connector road to Bryn Du Drive
between lots 4& 5 would also be constructed.
Councilmember Marshall commented that he'd heard a rumor
that a petition was being circulated by Bryn Du Woods property
owners asking that no connector roads be constructed between the
Farmington Development and Bryn Du Woods Subdivision. Mr. Gordon
said that presented an interesting sociological question.
Mayor Eisenberg commented that he liked the buffer that was
restored (150 feet back from original set back easement), along
the front of Farmington, facing Newark Road.
Following discussion, Mr. Gordon asked if the new
configuration was in general, Village Council' s thinking.
Mayor Eisenberg stated that he saw nothing objectionable in
proposed modifications made since the last meeting. No objections
to the new configuration were made by other members of Council.
Councilmember Rader however, asked Mr. Wright what his
intentions were with regard to his law suit filed against the Village.
Response was that Mr. Wright' s law suite was an appeal denial of of the first Farmington proposal, turned down by the village.
Vice Mayor Morrow asked Mr. Gordon if Mr. Wright was waiting
for final plat approval before actually picking up again on his
appeal in court. Response was yes.
NEW BUSINESS
Library Alley Proposal -Granville Library Trustee Ted
Englehardt, and Architect Julius (Spooge) Blum appeared to present a plan to reconfigure the alley between the Granville
Public Library and the AveryD-owner Museum. Project cost has been estimated at $506-0, 000. The project would include some repaving with brick, not asphalt, some plantings, and benches. The alley would not be totally closed to vehicular traffic, but the reconfiguration would discourage such traffic. The Library Board has pledged $15,000, and Friends of the Granville Library have pledged $2, 000 so far. Others who have agreed to support the project with no amount yet pledged: Granville Foundation and The Evans Foundation. The library group plans to seek financial support from Granville Township, Granville organizations, clubs, and through public solicitation. Following Mr. Englehardt' s presentation, he asked Village Council for financial support equal to that pledged by the Granville Library Trustees, and for their endorsement of the project. 1

During discussion, Councilmember Marshall questioned why as
one of the two to benefit the most from this project the Avery-
Downer Museum had not come forth with any financial support. Mr.
Englehardt explained that the museum' s funds were depleted and
the museum is not in a position to financially support the
project at this time. Copies of the proposed Library Alley
repaving and reconfiguration are attached as part of these
minutes. No decision was made on this request at this time.
