a 3' insulated door with glassc-o-lonial looking. In building

double French doors opening onto the deck. BZBA granted a variance

GRANVILLE PLANNING COMMISSION

Kenneth and Katherine Richards, 1034 West Broadway (Lot split

application)

The Richardses wish to split their lot, proposing two lots

both of which meet the requirements. They showed the drawing of a

house they plan to construct, and everything agrees with the

ordinances. Mr. Huey asked about the drainage, and the Richardses

want to keep that area for landscaping. They are making sure to

stay outside the TCOD. Mr. Huey moved to accept. application, Mr.

Stansbury seconded, AND MOTION WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.

Christopher and Vickie Avery, 1274 South Prospect

Mrs. Avery wishes to add an additional sign for her new

investigation business to the current ground sign; it is larger

than permitted, and this request would increase that size. If

approved, it would need to go to BZBA for variance from the

requirement of 10 sq. ft. in the AROD. Dr. Avery said the sign

will be located below the other two, and the bushes will be

trimmed. The post will not be enlarged. The dimension of the new

sign will be smaller, but the total sign area will exceed 10 sq. ft.

Ms. Garrett asked whether all three signs could be reduced to fit

the code. (The sign code is per building, not per business.) One

alternative would be a sign on the building itself, for only one

ground sign per lot is acceptable. Any major changes on the sign

would need to come back to GPC. The 10 sq. ft. include the wooden

frame and the space between the signs where the little chain is.

Dr. Avery thought he could consult with the co-tenants on redesigning

the sign, and Mr. Tailford would like to see a proposed sign

drawing.

Mr. Huey moved to approve a free-standing sign, total area not

to exceed 10 sq.ft.,and subject to approval of an acceptable

drawing by Mr. Tailford. The sign is to be similar in design and

color to the existing sign. Mr. Stansbury seconded motion, AND IT

WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.

Steve Smith, 331 Spellman Street

Mr. Smith wishes to construct a 40" high picket fence,

matching existing fencing, add to the deck, and install patio

doors. Mr. Smith was not present, and GPC members preferred to

wait until he could be present to answer questions about the

location of the addition, which appears to be over the driveway.

Mr. Harf moved to table applioation, Mr. Huey seconded, AND MOTION

WAS UNANIMOUSLY TABLED.

Shirley Johnson, The Ridge at Erinwood (Guanciale &Johnson Real

Estate)

Ms. Johnson wishes to erect a temporary advertising sign at

1

2

the entrance to the Ridge on Lot 112 and will be set back 15' from

right of way. Mrs. Johnson showed GPC members on the map where she

wants the sign located; it needs to be visible to the road without

violating the codes. For a non-on-site sign, it has to be 15' away

from the lot line, 32 sq. ft. or less, and 10' high, not including

supports but including the knobs on the top. In order to fit, this

sign needs to be 18" from the ground maximum. Mr. Huey moved to

approve the application for the sign subject to conform with the 32

sq.ft. maximum regulation, 10' high maximum from mean grade, at

least 15' from right of way; final location to be agreed upon by

Mr. Tailford. Mr. Harf seconded, AND IT WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.

Erinwood (1),Three signs on Building 3 of the Offices

The application is for 3 wall signs for Building 3, two to go

the front and one on south end wall like the others. They have the

necessary variances. The sign to be illuminated faces the road,

the other two are nonilluminated, and discussion ensued on whether

they needed business signs at night. Mr. Tailford said they are

not very bright lights; they will remain as in application.

Mr. Huey moved to approve; Mr. Stansbury seconded, AND APPLICATION

WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.

Ms. Robertson, following the motion, discovered the service

mark/trade mark under Nationwide Insurance, saying "Nationwide is

on your side," and asked whether this was necessary. It appears to

her to be more of an advertising slogan than an identificatidn

1 sign, and signs may not carry advertising. Mr. Harf moved to amAnd-4· 4

W

0/ 't m-e-m--otion just passed to eliminate the slogan, because of

1 - 4A oversight, and Mr. Huey seconded, BUT THE MOTION FAILED BY A 2 to

2 VOTE (Harf and Robertson, yes; Huey and Stansbury, no).Mr. Huey

j,Y» does not want to get into situations where GPC censors signs. Ms.

Garrett wanted to see a drawing of the Nationwide sign, saying it

will be too small to read and cluttered with all those words. Ms.

Robertson read from 1189. 02(a) the definition of a sign.

Erinwood (2),Three signs for Building 5

This is for 2 wall signs · on south side and 1 free-standing

sign on an island, and this one will be visible from the street.

The wall signs are consistent with the signs on the other

buildings. ·One is the ground sign discussed at the work session at

last meeting. Although the application appeared to be in order,

at this point in the meeting failure to harmoniously conciliate

differences following the previous motion prevailed. Mr. Huey

moved to approve, Mr. Stansbury seconded, AND THE MOTION WAS

REJECTED BY A 2 TO 2 VOTE.

Erinwood (3),Temporary Sign on Shannon Lane

This is the renewal of a temporary sign permit for advertising

the Condominiums on Shannon Lane. Mr. Stansbury moved to approve,

Mr. Huey seconded, AND THE MOTION WAS REJECTED BY A VOTE OF 2 AYES
