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

ME=dl#e.-will-

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.
