CONTINUED PUBLIC HEARING
Modified recommendation From Planning Commission on Welsh Hills
School' s Rezoning Request.
Mayor Eisenberg gave a brief summary of events leading second public hearing to the on the Granville Planning Commission' s GPC) modified recommendation on the Welsh Hills School' s (WHS) request for a rezoning of their property off Newark- Granville
Road. Following Mr. Eisenberg' s summary, Evelyn Frolking, W( HS) Head Mistress, distributed copies of a statement she made to the GPC) from the Board of Governors acknowledging the Village' s concerns, and outlining the school' s needs. She then read the statement to all (copy attached as part of these minutes).
Larry Huey, Planning Commissioner, explained why the GPC was recommended Planned Unit District (PUD)f,or the property instead of Institutional District. In trying to maintain the residential character of that area, GPC felt for now and the future, it would be better to have the property zoned PUD. In dealing with WHS, the GPC felt they would have less control of the property if it wthearet zoned Institutional District. Mr. Huey stated his opinion the property would have less value as well.

Vice Mayor Marshall disagreed with the statement that the
property would have less value if it were zoned Institutional
District. He stated that a property should be rezoned as narrowly
as possible.
Mayor Eisenberg said that Village Council' s obligation was
to the future use of the property, what best fits, not future
value of the property.
Councilmember Vance asked why the school preferred PUD
zoning. Lee Larson, a member of the WHS Board of Governors, said
WHS was looking towards the long future, maybe 15 or 20 years,
and a possibility that the school may out grow the site. The
Board felt that PUD would be less restrictive for any future
buyer if that would happen.
Mr. Larson noted in the new zoning ordinance section
describing Institutional District, and said to him it was clearly
written with Denison University in mind, and most of what was
written pertained to the university.
John Noecker, whose property abuts WHS property, stated his
satisfaction with the proposed Institutional District for the
property.
Review and discussion then centered on the new zoning
ordinance sections: Planned Unit District and Institutional
District.
Ms. Frolking stated that the WHS Board of Governors decided
that they would fit under any of the three following zoning
districts: (PCD)P, U( D)o, r (ID)a,nd that they were not present to argue rezoning, they just want to move forward and to have
some assurance that they will be able to move the old Munson House on to their property.
Mayor Eisenberg stated that Village Council understood their frustration, and agreed at times it looked like they were taking two steps forward and one back, but, it was better in the end to get it done right. Mr. Eisenberg stated that an ordinance to modify the GPC' s recent modified recommendation will be introduced under new business later on in the meeting. He took a quick consensus of members present: those members present agreed Institution District would be the best zoning for the property. Mayor Eisenberg assured Ms. Frolking and Mr. Larson that neither he nor the rest of Council could see any reason for any delay in moving forward with their plans. Public hearing closed at 8: 15 p.m.

barriers or other such paraphernalia were also discussed. A sign

vehicles was suggested, but Councilmember Vance had reservations

Erinwood/ Road Widths- Cul-de-sacs
Members of Council weighed the pre-meeting bus tour of Erinwood' s
substandard road widths, cul-de-sacs with center islands, and the
obvious difficulty in maneuvering turns into the main entrance
and discussed these issues at length. Particupating in the
discussion were Erinwood' s project engineer Mat Mauger, Frank
Murphy, and Manager Plunkett.
Following a lengthy discussion, a motion was made by
Councilmember Freytag, seconded by Councilmember Shulman, that
both planters (islands),in the cul-de-sacs be removed, accept
the discrepancy of the road width error, except the entrance.
Councilmember Herman asked how much would the Village gain taking by out the islands. Councilmember Freytag contended that the islands were not practical. It was noted during discussion that until Village Council accepts by ordinance the streets and cul- des-acs, no Village services would be provided. Roll call vote on the motion: Freytagy-es, Shulmany-es, Hermann-o, Vancen-o, Marshally-es, Eisenbergn-o, Garretta-bsent. Three yes votes, three no votes, and one member absent. Motion defeated.

Erinwood Water &Sewer Taps
Manager Plunkett noted that several lots within Erinwood have
been sold and contractors have called to find out whether they
pay the old or new capacity fees. He said Frank Murphy had asked
the same question. Mr. Murphy felt that since his company would
be paying an assessment for the water main extension, plus the
expense of utilities' installation, sewer assessments, etc.,that
should entitle him and builders within Erinwood to tap on at the
old (lower), capacity rates.
Following discussion among members of Council and Manager
Plunkett, consensus of Council was that the capacity fees now in
effect stand.
Interview/ Candidates For Planning Commission Vacancy
Each of the three candidates who submitted letters of interest in
serving on the Planning Commission: Gilbert Krone, Eloise

on behalf of Village Council, thanked the candidates for their
