Bob Seith of 116 Locust Place,explained that Locust Place was the alley that
connects Broadway and Main Street around the First Presbyterian church. He stated
that he is very distressed about the possible closing of a portion of the alley. He stated
that although the church plans are preliminary,Locust Place is the sole remaining
village square original alley that hasn't been altered. He stated that Council should
consider very carefully giving up a piece of public property for the benefit of one and
the detriment of another. He stated that he hoped that everyone could work together to
find a suitable arrangement for all parties.
Manager Plunkett stated that the Planning Commission will be making
decisions concerning the church's plans and encouraged Mr. Seith to attend those
meetings.

Frank Murphy stated that the light fixture proposed is the " Granville"fixture.
He stated that they would like to install nine lights to give some light in the
development,but not alot. He stated that he is not required to install street lights,but is
proposing to split the cost with the Village so that Granville does not have to come
back later and install street lights at Granville's cost.
Councilmember MeGowan stated that there are approximately 80 lots in
Erinwood. He stated that when he had talked with other communities,all required the
developer to install the street lights at the developer's cost. He stated that with only 18
of the 80 lots being sold in Erinwood, instead of spending Village money for lights,
the people interested in buying the remaining lots should be assessed for the cost of the
lighting. He expressed concern that other developments may ask for the same deal and
the Village could spend half a million dollars in lights. He stated that in his opinion,it
would be easier to assess the homeowners who haven't bought the property for the
lights.
Councilmembers Bellman and Eisenberg arrived ( 7:20 p.m.).
Councilmember Montgomery stated that Council has two choices: accept the
request of Mr. Murphy and pay for half of the lights or not accept the request and have
no lights at all. She stated that ifMr. Murphy is offering to pay 50%Co,uncil should
accept that. She stated that although Council will be setting a precedent,the other
subdivisions have already been established.
After a discussion,Councilmember Eisenberg moved to accept the offer of Mr.
Murphy to install nine light fixtures in the Glen Section of Erinwood. He stated that an ordinance would have to be prepared to spend the money for that project and a public
hearing could be held at that time. Seconded by Councilmember Bennett.
Vice Mayor Freytag expressed concern over what Council would do if other subdivisions asked for the same 50%deal.
Roll call vote: Eisenberg yes,McGowan no,Bellman no,Montgomery yes, Bennett yes,Freytag no,Mayor Marshall yes. Four yes votes,three no votes. Motion carried.
Mayor Marshall stated that there would be ample time for discussion on the issue at the public hearing.
