PUBLIC HEARINGS
A public hearing was held on Ordinance No. 269- 5,A "n Ordinance To Rezone
Properties Located At 231 And 241 East Maple Street From The Zoning Classification Of
Suburban Residential District To The Zoning Classification Of Village Residential District."
Steve Michael of 273 East Maple Street stated that he was concerned with the lack of off
street parking on Maple Street. He stated that the parking regulations were not currently
enforced, and ifthe Westall property split is approved,he would like to see something done
about the parking issue.
Gary Stansbury representing the Planning Commission,stated that when Mr. Westall
came to the Planning Commission,the Commission,after looking at the criteria,thought that it
would be better to rezone the property to VRD to eliminate requiring the applicant to obtain
zoning variances that would be needed if it were to remain SRD,and because the lots across the
street ( zoned VRD), are of the same size. He stated that the Commission did not think that it
would be spot zoning because the properties across the street were zoned that way,and the other
land could not be built upon. He stated that Mr. Westall will still have to come to the Planning Commission for architectural review.
Bruce Westall stated that the parking on South Pearl Street is enforced and he and the
Chief of Police had discussed parking in that area before. He stated that the N"o Parkings"igns
on South Pearl Street should read N"o Parking Beyond This Point"H.e stated that people can park up to the sign. He stated that he too,was concerned with off street parking but felt that he could create off street parking,behind his lot after the construction.
The public hearing on Ordinance No. 26-95 closed at 7:42 p.m.

COMMITTEE REPORTS
Councilmember Shulman reported on the Tree and Landscape Commission meeting. He
stated that he hadn't attended the meeting,but from the minutes,the commission had accepted a
bid from Fackler's Country Gardens to perform the brick work at Bolen Park. The commission
reported that 55 trees had been planted this year and that they hadn't received the Urban Forest
Grant for maintenance of trees. St. Lukes' Church is closer with their plans for installing an
elevator,which may affect Opera House Park. The dying tree in front of the post office will be
replaced soon.
Councilmember Garrett reported on the Planning Commission meeting of October 2,
1995. From that meeting,two items will be coming to Council: the application of Jack and Judy
Pyle for their storage buildings on Newark-Granville Road,and the Granville Milling
Company's rezoning request to rezone part of their property to Community Service District. The
commission had tabled the request from Dave Longaberger to install a fence,and approved the
Murphy Group's Glen at Erinwood Phase 2 and 3. Mr. Westall's application was tabled until
more information can be obtained and several sign applications were approved.
Councilmember Freytag reported on the Recreation Commission meeting of October 3,
1995. In an earlier meeting,the commission had discussed installing a phone at Wildwood Park. Since that discussion,an injury had occurred during a soccer game and there had been call for help. A spectator had no way to a cellar phone which was used to call for help. This incident confirmed the need for a phone at Wildwood Park. It appears that the cost estimates for the

Councilmember Bennett questioned the letter received from Mr. Riddel concerning the
Evans Foundation and the easement across the bikepath.
Vice Mayor Marshall stated that the letter restated everything mentioned at their meeting
and gave some free engineering advice.
Councilmember Freytag stated that the letter seemed to imply that someone else may have
been asked to reply also. He asked what the time factor was on obtaining the easement and stated
that there was more than one way to get an easement.
After a discussion,Manager Plunkett stated that he should have an answer from the
Village's engineer regarding whether or not the Village could cross the bikepath through an
existing easement. He stated that as soon as he had that answer and the cost factor,he would let
Council know.
Councilmember Montgomery questioned the 4-way stop sign being considered for Pearl
and Elm Street.
Manager Plunkett stated that there hadn't been accidents in that location,but many people
are confused at the intersection. He stated that the Village staff had been debating the issue,and
he thought he'd mention it to Council for their comments.
