The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, 2486 Newark- Granville Road -lot split and rezoning
Kevin Bower explained that the church property is partly PUD and partly SRDA and they want to (1) sell the larger L-shaped portion around the perimeter. (2) To increase parking area to 126 tshpeaces, they are seeking a change of zoning immediately around church to SRDA in order to be consistent with the land con- taining the church. To avoid flooding, they also wish to con- struct a detention pond and route storm water to a storm sewer on
Westgate Drive, using a ditch easement, which has been obtained
except for one small section. (3) An eagle scout has requested permission to install a flag pole at the church parking lot. 0
Members questioned Mr. Bower about the total acreage, and he
said the total is 80.1 acres; the split-off area is 3. 79 acres. 5 #2D/ f/ f
Mr. Myers asked about the outlet for ground water, and Mr:- 6. 9-5-PUD
Hickman stated that the Village Engineer has not looked at the plans yet. In theory this should work well because there is
access at the culdesac. Any future owners of the split-off
ProPerty would have to tear out the pipes and put in bigger ones. Mr. Myers felt that the church ought to gain enough easement to / accommodate future owners, i. e.,a @0" storm sewer easement to /0 town facility„

the church is responsible for sewer to Westgate Drive. Mr. Myers would prefer to see an improved appearance of the pond and marked

SuperAmerica -Lighting Plan
Mr. Thaxton stated that the site development plan was approved at last meeting with contingencies, and they have addressed these. They have dropped signage one foot for the 35' sign, and they have clustered the landscaping in front. Mr Myers thought it could still be clustered more, which would make it easier to maintain, and Mr. Thaxton will follow up on this suggestion. Mr. Thaxton showed night and daytime photographs of the Sign over the doorway, and he showed color samples of the sign and a schematic of the 18"x17' sign. Just the face lights
will show at night. There will be a small satellite dish on the roof of the canopy. The ground sign is internally lit.
Regarding the Lighting Plan, Mr. Thaxton said they have
reworked it and done what they could to make it work. It meets
the code. They have dropped the wattage of the lights. Hickman Mr. stated that the Village Engineer has not seen the plan yet. Mr. Myers would like to see still less lighting, but Mr.
Thaxton stated that the lights are recessed and up about 13',but Mr. Myers said that right under the fixtures, the light would be double at least. Mr. Thaxton is largely concerned about safety.
Ms. Montgomery gave Mr. Thaxton information from the Street
Lighting Committee about a proposed new style of lights for the village and thought that he might consider adhering to the new style. Mr. Thaxton said that these are street lights rather than commercial establishment internal lighting. Ms. Montgomery said
the Street Lighting Committee is considering asking for these lights in all commercial businesses. Mr. Thaxton thought that
simpler lights were more appropriate for parking lots.
Mr. Thaxton stated that there is an additional light at the
entrance for safety. Ms. Robertson asked whether there is
fsluofofidcileitn. t light at the dumpster, and Mr. Thaxton said it will be
MR. MYERS MOVED THAT WE APPROVE THE OUTDOOR LIGHTING PLAN
FOR SUPERAMERICA AS RESUBMITTED WITH THE CONDITION THAT IT MEET
WITH APPROVAL OF THE VILLAGE ENGINEER. WE ALSO APPROVE THE
LIGHTING OF THE SIGN ON THE FRONT OF THE BUILDING. MR. STANSBURY
SECONDED, AND IT WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.
Adjournment: 9: 50 p. m.
Next Meetings: September 9 and 23. Mr. Myers will be absent on the 9th.
