Marc Brockman, Chairperson for the Granville Improvement
Board mentioned that Esther Coffey will be paying for the
plantings in front of the new Village Hall, and everyone is
welcome who wants to help. Saturday, March 28th was designated as
work day for mulching and preparing the area for plants. Annuals

by consensus of Council, the design for the beds in front of the
new Village Offices was approved.
Marc Brockman, Chairperson, Granville Improvement Board
reviewed with Council a plan proposed by the Granville Veterans
Memorial Committee for a Veterans Memorial. The memorial would be
a 7/8 life size sculpture, similar to the one in front of the
library, made of bronze, and placed on a stone base. It would
identify with veterans of all wars, and cost approximately
45,0005-0$,000. The Granville American Legion has taken the
initiative as the fund raising group. Mr. Brockman said many
locations were looked at, including the median flag pole area,
entrances into the Village, and the Old Colony Burying Ground,
but the consensus was that those areas were a little out of the
traffic pattern. They didn' t want to hide the memorial, but give
it due respect. The southeast corner of the Opera House Park was
selected as the best location for the bronze veterans memorial.
Kirsten Pape is working on a landscape plan to tie in with the
Consensus of Council was that the Opera House Park was
becoming a busy place and that maybe it was time to stop placing
items in the park after this one.
Vice Mayor Marshall asked what was the Improvement Board' s
feelings on the request to put up a bingo tent in the Opera House
Park during the 4th of July celebration. Mr. Brockman stated
consensus of the members felt the Opera House Park lawn couldn't
handle the event since the lawn was still pretty fragile. The
request to use the park for the Art Show was approved however.
The Mayor's Court Report was presented and reviewed.
Councilmember Herman noted the jump in open container violations.
Mayor Eisenberg stated that there were a lot of cases last month
and felt the warm weather had a lot to do with the increase.
Following review the clerk was directed to file the report. A
copy of that report is attached as part of these minutes.
The Manager' s Report for the month of February was presented.
Following review Vice Mayor Marshall moved to approve the
Manager' s Report. Motion seconded by Councilmember Freytag.

for adoption by Vice Mayor Marshall. Motion seconded by

questioned the $3, 310 for the service agreement on the HVAC
equipment in the new municipal building which ends in July. It

getting some of that back. Manager Plunkett stated that the pro rata was based on square footage and he hadn' t taken the time to
do that yet. The Village wouldn' t get any back, some of it just
wouldn' t get spent. Roll call vote: Marshall- yes, Freytag- yes,
Hermany-es, Shulmany-es, Eisenbergy-es, Garretta-bsent, Vance- absent. Five yes votes, two members absent. Motion carried.

Building Code Issues
Steve Regoli, executive secretary for the State' s Board of
Building Standards, and Jack Pryor, Newark' s Code Administrator,
had been invited to the meeting to clear up some building code
concerns expressed by Mary Bline, owner of Greystone Antiques,
located at 128 S. Main Street, and the Granville Business and
Professional Association. Ms. Bline' s business was red tagged by
the Newark Code Administration (contracted by the Village of
Granville to perform building code inspections), advising her
that operations would have to cease, and that she would need to
obtain a certificate of plan approval. The red tag meant that
there was some work that needed to be done before Ms. Bline could
obtain a use or occupancy permit for her shop. Mr. Pryor would
need to designate what her building could be used for. Ms. Bline
was also directed to submit a set of her house plans to Mr.
Pryor' s for his review.
Once Ms. Bline submits her house plans to Mr. Pryor for
review and he determines that a permit can' t be issued because of
non- compliance to the code, he would then issue an Adjudication
Order. Ms. Bline' s next step would be to file an appeal to the
state' s Board of Building Appeals (a three member panel
consisting of an architect, engineer, and a lawyer), who deal
with the appeals procedure without compromising the safety,
health and welfare of the public. The panel would review the
appeal in accordance with BOCA National Building Code, Section
513.0[4101:2-5-13] Special Historic Buildings and Districts -
513.1(4101:2-5-13) Approval: (copy attached as part of these
minutes). Once the panel makes a measure, if Ms. Bline finds it
still not to her liking, her recourse would be then to file an
appeal with the Common Pleas Court.
Mr. Regoli explained that Ohio only has a building code for
four-family and up structures which is basically a fire code.
Local governments can establish their own regulations for single
family -up to three-family structures, and can be more but not
less stringent than the state' s regulations.
Mayor Eisenberg thanked Mr. Regoli and Mr. Pryor for coming
to the meeting and clarifying the building code issues.
