Don DeSapri. 13 acres on Newark-Granville Road -Lot Split:
Mr. DeSapri wishes to split a 13 acre parcel into four lots ranging in size from 2.45 to 3. 9 acres in size. Mr. Pape believed that the instead of four driveways that they should be combined into two driveway cuts onto NewarkG- ranville Road. The other members agreed. Since the property was subject to the TCOD the plans for each house would need to come before the GPC for landscape plan approval. Street trees would also need to be provided along NewarkG- ranville Road in compliance with the Tree & Landscape Ordinance. Mr. Huey questioned Mr. Tailford on whether this lots-plit would change the demand for the pathway system to be expanded to the area. Mr. Tailford did not believe that this lots-plit changed the demand enough to require an extension of the system. Mr. Tailford was concerned with the drainage beneath the new driveway entrances. He believed the driveways will need to be approved by the Village Engineer. The GPC advised Mr.DeSapri to make the stated changes and submit an official application for the lot-split.
GPC 1995 Goals:
Mr. Pape believes that the zoning a parcel receives upon annexation should not necessarily be
PUD which increases the density automatically to 1 unit per 1.5 acres. The GPC requested Mr. Tailford
to find a way to change the ordinance to allow the GPC to zone the property similar to its Township
zoning and keep the density the same.
Mr. Huey and Ms. Robertson explained that it is important to educate township and Village
residents about the merger and how the study is what is being voted on in November and not an actual
Mr. Pape discussed parking in the Village and that a mechanism that should be designed to allow
an applicant to provided off-site parking or put money in escrow for the future construction of a satellite
parking lot. Mr. Pape believes the Village should secure land for a satellite parking lot.
Mr. Pape gave Mr. Tailford a plan for a new parking lot design for the parking lot behind the United Methodist Church.
