UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.
Public Hearing:
Jack &Judi Pyle, 1328 Cherry Valley Road
The chair informed the group that tonight- s hearing is to
clear up some unfinished items on the Pyles- application for a
storage shed and that we would simply work through the listed
items one by one. Two of the items generated some discussion:
1) "Extend landscaping to screen south and east side of
building."Mr. Myers thought that replacing the malus "snowdrift"
with something like white pine would provide better winter
screening.
2) "Show drainage plan (drainage arrows)M."r. Myers
stated that along the west property line there needs to be some sort of storm water direction. The amount of new paving would
seem to call for a swale carrying water to the ditch at the rear of the property. This needs to be worked out to the satisfaction of the engineers. Mr. Tailford stated that the engineers recom-

mended that any further building needs to be approved by them.
Mr. Huey suggested that the grade at the northwest be designed so
that water does not run off into the neighbor- s property.
In addition, Ms. Garrett suggested that the building be set
back farther from the road. Ms. Pyle stated grading considerations
as the reason for locating the building at that place and
relocating would require a lot of fill, which might run off into
the shop. Mr. Myers thought a swale of -2@Z- 30'
and recommended the building be moved back 20' 4

Mr. Myers asked about the PCD zoning for storage units, ict,01 p since he was absent during the earlier discussion, and .w-a.31AG ld
that this will not be precedent-setting because of the uniqueness
of the location and the fact that there will be no lights, no
signs, and no fences, and that the screening in this case will
improve the visage of the buildings there now. The storage units
are not a primary use of the property; they will be attractive Q
and well built, and thus fit within PCD. Clinder CSD, a new owner C.462·
might plan a less appropriate business at that sit£ 3 Zoning *le
consideration for the entire Cherry Valley Road was reconsidered
at the time when the Pyles first applied for the storage units.
Mr. Huey would not support additional storage units in the
A,
future. 6/2 - 3
Mr. Myers moved that GPC approve the application with the
following conditions: 1) that the malus "snowdrift" along
Cherry Valley Road be replaced with white pine; (2) that the
9uilding,EaSphalt drive, and parking be moved back to 100' from
the center road right of way; (3) that a storm swale along
northwest property line be 'added to channel storm water to north
and south side without adversarily affecting neighbors; (4) add
landscaping to the front of the driveway apron and northwest of
the turnaround to complete screening; (5) {added by Mr. Tailford}
any further construction will require approval by the village
engineers. MR. HUEY SECONDED THE MOTION, AND THE MOTION CARRIED
3-1 WITH MR. STANSBURY ABSTAINING. Citizen comment was not
solicited. 6 no s 4
Granville Milling Co.,400 S. Main -Rezoning
The Mill owners wish to change zoning from OSD and SRD-B to
CSD in order to erect two buildings, described fully in the last
minutes. Considerable citizen opposition was discerned, and GPC
felt it important to protect neighbors' property as well as to
allow the applicant to add buildings to more effectively run his
business. There was a community meeting, and Mr. Attebury
owner} is willing to add screening and move the buildings. But 50» 1 e
people are still not satisfied.
Mr. Westall spoke for the neighbors, repeating much of what
was enumerated at the last meeting, adding (1) Additional large
warehouses are not in Granville' s best interest; (2) more
business means more truck traffic and noise; (3) GPC should
2
protect the neighbors because they have protected neighbors in
other areas from commercial expansion; (4) Granville needs a
buffer between commercial and residential areas; (5) the Mill
should be responsible for landscapings/creening. Mr. Westall
challenged the GPC to come up with a reasonable compromise. He
thought a complete plan is needed for the entire area, i. e.,
South Pearl extension.
Mr. Michael said there was still opposition to rezoning the
entire five-acre parcel. Also, the fill is dangerously close to
the trees. He preferred that all vehicles be under roof, but Mr.
Watts told him that such a building would be three times as large
as that proposed. Mr. Tailford thought that some things stored
outside could be cleaned up and that the pallets could be stored
indoors.
After more discussion, 1R=p*° ts-- 8 the group wasre-mtrrde-d- that this i
rezoning request, not a formal application for two buildings,
the concentration of discussion became exclusively rezoning. A
compromise was eventually forthcoming:
Mr. Huey moved that we recommend to Village Council that the
0SD portion in yellow on the zoning map be changed to CSD. He
moved also that the SRD-B portion be unchanged. Mr. Salvage
seconded, AND THE MOTION PASSED BY,TO* 1 (Mr. Myers).
Y *I. David Longaberger, 537 Jones Road -Application change
Mr. Nagy explained the reasons behind wanting to change from
the previously approved post and rail fence to a 6- 6" metal
picket fence with stone piers with' lights rising to 8- 10" because
they want to (1) match the existing gate and fence on Jones Road;
2) enhance security around the house; and (3) increase safety
for polo horses and riders.
sa
and
Mr. Huey was concerned about polo riders getting thrown and
impaled on the sharp piekets. It would b¢better if the spikee
had rounded top¤, but the fenee ig gtill too high for the allowed
height of 48" and the stone posts are too big. The proposed
fence is inconsistent with the village even though it matches the
house fencing. Ms. Garrett suggested running the fence just
around the house rather than around the polo field and having a
post and beam type fence around the polo field.
Consensus agreed that Mr. Nagy should consult with Mr.
Longaberger and return with a revised plan within the ordinance.
MR. SALVAGE MOVED TO TABLE APPLICATION; MR. HUEY SECONDED, AND
APPLICATION WAS UNANIMOUSLY TABLED.
New Business:
Robert Parker, 136B South Main -Sign
Mr. Parker wants two signs, a wall sign and a ground sign,
white with maroon lettering, consistent with sizes and locations

previously determined by GPC as appropriate for the building.
MR. HUEY MOVED TO APPROVE APPLICATION; MR. SALVAGE SECONDED, AND
MOTION WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.
The Murphy Group -Erinwood, The Glen, Phase II and III
The Group has decided to combine Phases II and III at this
time. A landscape plan will be reviewed by the Tree and
Landscape Commission before coming to GPC which is required
before Phase II/III house are built. The sidewalk on Jones
Road from Longford to Newark-Granville Road will need to be
installed with this phase.
MR. HUEY MOVED· TO AUTHORIZE THE CHAIR TO SIGN THIS PLAT WITH
CONTINGENCIES THAT (1) SIDEWALKS ARE INSTALLED ALONG JONES ROAD
AND (2) LANDSCAPING BE SUBMITTED TO TREE AND LANDSCAPE
COMMISSION. MR. SALVAGE SECONDED, AND MOTION WAS UNANIMOUSLY
APPROVED.
The Murphy Group, The Glen Temoorary Sign Application
Two temporary blue and white signs are requested: 1) at
intersection of Jones and Longford under Phase I and (2) near
intersection of Langford and North Galway under Phase II. 3) An
existing subdivision sign is located along Newark- Granville Road
under Phase III and needs to be renewed.
MR. SALVAGE MOVED TO APPROVE THE TWO NEW SIGNS (1 AND 2) AND
TO RENEW APPROVAL OF EXISTING SIGN (3).The existing sign is
larger than permitted size but was within the requirements at the
time of installation. Mr. Myers seconded AND MOTION WAS
UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.
Spring Hills Baptist Church
The representative showed a drawing of the original plan and
explained how they want to expand in their next phase of development.
They want to expand the sanctuary by 70- and add two wings
to the educational building. The back parking lot will be
changed slightly because of the topography, and there is a temporary
turnaround in the front. Mr. Huey asked how long temporary
is, because a longer duration will affect landscaping and appearance.
The representative thought it would be for a year or so.
The plan will need the engineers approval of the drainage
because it was not addressed in the first phase. Mr. Salvage
would like to see a drainage plan as part of what is presented
tonight. The representative said a large portion of the drive
will be gravelled. Their engineer needs to work with the village
engineer.
Mr. Huey asked about screening, and the representative
thought they would be putting in shrubs and split rail fence,

rather than mounding. Mr. Huey also wanted to be assured that V
dfar residents are protected from noise and lights; he also wanted
to see a landscaping plan over the entire property.
MR. HUEY MOVED TO APPROVE APPLICATION CONTINGENT UPON
SATISFACTORY COMPLETION OF ITEMS IN BIRD &BULL- S LETTER AND THAT
THE CHURCH PRESENTS GPC WITH A LANDSCAPING PLAN TO THE EAST AND
NORTH. MR. MYERS SECONDED, AND IT WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.
Bruce and Lisa Westall, 2451 E. Maple
The Westalls wish to build a new house on the lot gained
through the newly acquired lot split. He explained that it will
have cedar siding, not vinyl siding. There will be an attached
garage, and they will add fill to the slope.
GPC members were confused by the sketchy drawings which did
not match the photograph. Mr. Salvage thought that a 16- drop
would not be workable, and the owners need to show an accurate
footprint of the actual shape, designating configurations of the
lot, distances from each lot line, and exact elevations for each
side. GPC wants to know exactly how the house will fit within
the contours and to see house plans with placement of garage and
basement.
MR. SALVAGE MOVED TO TABLE APPLICATION; MR. HUEY SECONDED,
AND APPLICATION WAS UNANIMOUSLY TABLED.
