Citizens Comments: Ed Vance encouraged GPC to not allow or

recommend things that are not in conformance with village codes.

He said that he understood Village Council to have determined

SuperAmerica to be an allowable use, and he asked GPC to take a

close look at the application because a lot of citizens do not

think this should be allowable there.

Old Business:

David Longaberger, 537 Jones Road -Application change

Mr. Nagy brought to the group a revised 6- fence plan for

the polo field as a compromise to the previous plan. This fence

is lower than the former one but still needs to be 6' tall to

keep the horses in and to maintain balance with the rest of the

property. They also wanted to grant space for the bikepath to

the village. He showed the group a sample of fencing, which

would have spikes 9" apart and have a low wattage lamp on stone

piers. He thought a 4- wood fence would look inappropriate for

the property and be dangerous for bikers.

Mr. Stansbury asked whether Mr. Longaberger is considering

this type fence around the entire property, and the answer was

positive. Mr. Stansbury did not think a 4' wood fence would look

inappropriate; rather, a wrought iron fence around a field for

horses would look inappropriate. Ms. Garrett cautioned GPC about

precedent-setting with a wrought iron fence. Mr. Huey stated

that under 1448 a 42 fence is maximum. In the ordinance fences

.pbut

Mr. Huey said they are not enclosing horses. ,

8c,a/nnot have spikes or sharp points, so these spikes are not possible

because we cannot vary a prohibited use. Mr. Tailford

reminded the group that there are spike fences in the village,

more visually attractive than 4".Mr. Stansbury thought that

even though the chainlink is unattractive, a spike fence would

look like a prison.

Mr. Salvage stated that three of the four criteria for considering

applications would seem unsuitable for the fence in

addition to the question of appearance. Mr. Myers stated that

there is a polo field in Gahanna with a wooden fence 4- high.

Members agreed that the proposed fence would only be appropriate

surrounding the house for security reasons, not around the polo

field.

MR. HUEY MOVED TO APPROVE THE APPLICATION AND MR. STANSBURY

SECONDED. THE VOTE WAS UNANIMOUSLY OPPOSED TO THE APPLICATION

for the following reasons: 1) the fence with lights is too

high; (2) it is unsafe for horses and riders with the spikes and

unsafe for children who might get stuck in-between the spikes;

3) it is not compatible with surrounding area, nor is it appropriate

for a field of horses; and (4) spike fences are not allowed

in the village. The group would approve of the proposed

fencing just around the house.

New Business:

Sensibilities, 118 S. Main -Sign

Mr. Vance would like a tan and white unlit ground sign on

the Main Street side of the building in the right of way. It' s a

two-sided, 8 sq. ft. sign on a wooden post with a birdhouse on top

of the sign. The sign conforms with all regulations. MR. HUEY

MOVED TO APPROVE APPLICATION; MR. MYERS SECONDED, AND MOTION WAS

UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.
