South Cherry Valley Road deannex, Newark may want Westgate Drive next.

owners had three choices; go to Newark, go to Granville or stay the way they were.

protective. Mr. Stansbury again urged Council to deny any deannexation petition.

residents wanted to annex to Granville, they asked for it, and they got what they
wanted. Mayor Eisenberg stated that the properties on the south side of Cherry Valley
Road are going to become commercial and be developed in accordance with the
Master Plan and the Zoning Ordinance. Mayor Eisenberg stated that he is opposed to
even considering the deannexation proposal.
