COMMITTEE REPORTS
Councilmember Bennett reported on the Planning Commission meeting of August 7,
1995. A number of routine applications had been approved. One application had been referred
back to the applicant because the plan for a screened in porch needed to show more details. A
worksession for the Hilengreen Project was also held. The project was referred back to the
developer asking for a more detailed plan and some adjustments.
Councilmember Freytag questioned if the homeowners association was concerned with
the Hilengreen Project?
Councilmember Garrett stated that the Homeowners Association was not totally against
the project as long as the developer is aware of the limits and conditions ordered by the Court.
Councilmember Freytag questioned if there was an access problem with the project?
Councilmember Garrett stated that the access from Welsh Hills Road and Donald Ross
Drive had been a concern because Donald Ross is a private Drive. She stated that she hadn't
seen the most recent plans but she had made several comments at the Planning Commission
meeting concerning the access.
Councilmember Bennett stated that the developer would likely be going forward on the
project but some 'fine tuning"needed to be done first. He stated that the access and minor questions on style needed to be addressed.
Manager Plunkett stated that he had looked for an ordinance regarding the private prohibition on drives connecting two public streets but had not found anything on record. He stated that he had thought an ordinance had been adopted but must have been mistaken.

next council meeting prohibiting private drives from connecting to public streets.

and moved for adoption by Vice Mayor Marshall. Seconded by Councilmember Garrett. Motion
carried. Resolution No. 95-40 was adopted.
Councilmember Freytag stated that he was concerned with the August 14 letter to John
Thaxton of SuperAmerica. He stated that the letter seems to contradict an earlier letter. He stated
that the base line for the recouping of fees is now down to $89,000.
Manager Plunkett stated that his impression was that the $248,000 had been the base line
initially. The $89,000 is the base for a proposal that won't cost the Village anything. He stated
that he had told Mr. Thaxton that he needed to talk to the Council ahead." first before the idea was a g"o
Councilmember Freytag stated that the letter is inconsistent because previously the
amount in question in July was $15,000,now it's $175,000. He stated that in the past,the
developer has been required to pay for oversizing for future use. Mr. Freytag stated that
assuming Council agrees to allow developers to recoup,the numbers have changed and he doesn't agree with the change.
Manager Plunkett stated that the reason the 8$9,000 had been acceptable in his mind was because of the assessment of improved property requiring an extra fee to develop that wouldn't affect capacity fees. He stated that a property within the drainage area would be surcharged and the proceeds paid into a fund to be held by the Village,which would then pay out yearly from the
amounts collected to the sewer builders. He stated that it would be a special fee above the capacity fee.
Councilmember Freytag stated that this was the first time he had heard of that proposal and it was not favored in his opinion.
Councilmember Shulman stated that if the Village were to do that,the existing property
foowrners shouldn't have an extra assessment because the Council has been promising them sewers a long time.
Manager Plunkett stated that he had been trying to satisfy all the perspectives. If the special assessment was levied,most properties would be commercial,since the area is zoned PUD. He stated that extra assessments paid by developers would not be an undue burden. Councilmember Freytag stated that that would be a reason to annex to Newark and would be a bad precedent because everyone would be asking for it.
Mayor Eisenberg stated that SuperAmerica and Bob Evans Farms did not just want to recoup the oversizing,but also recoup the cost of bringing the sewer across the expressway. He stated that by the Village paying for the oversizing,to satisfr the concern of precedence,there is a quidp- roq-uo situation,and in the future ifthis kind of situation arises again,the Village may BwoabntEtovacnosntshiadet r it. Mayor Eisenberg stated that Manager Plunkett should inform SuperAmerica/ the Councils "hot the idea down".
Councilmember Bennett questioned when Marathon would be appealing the Board of Zoning and Building Appeals decision?

of loops on the water line in another village. In that case,the village was able to go to the County
Commissioners and the Township and put the water line in the right-of-way.
