Jeff Kobunsky, Lot 31 Thornwood Addition, W. Broadway
Bob Hersom, owner of the property, stated that the plans phuasveh been changed to move the house slightly to the east and to it back 40' more. They will abandon the old driveway. The
pad is 55' x55' and the house is 28' high. They plan to cut down as few trees as possible. The Tree and Landscape Committe has been consulted, and they feel that with a 90' setback, sufficient screening will be maintained to protect the green belt. They also ask that a 15' area surrounding both large trees be cordoned cooffnswtriuthctisonnoweqfeunipcme eonrt. yellow tape to prevent soil compaction by
Mr. Winters stated his preference that the house be located
as far west as possible. Mr. Salvage thought the revised plans
present a reasonable alternative and compromise.
Ms. Robertson requested replacing as many trees as are cut
down. Mr. Marshall added that it is not necessary to plant a 15'
tree; three 5' trees can be substituted. Mr. Winters would like
some of the replacement trees planted as buffer between his house
and the new one. Mr. Winters acknowledged that an owner should
be able to do what he/she wishes within confines of the ordinance.
Mr. Hersom would like to replant evergreen trees to
provide a buffer in winter.
Mr. Reyazi requested that approval be conditional upon water
and sewer approval. Others thought this would be aatemca.**
MR. SALVAGE MOVED TO APPROVE APPLICATION SUBJECT TO
1) ABANDONMENT OF EXISTING DRIVEWAY ON LOT
2) INCORPORATE RECOMMENDATIONS OF TREE AND LANDSCAPE
3) EVERGREEN TREES TO BE PLANTED ALONG EAST LINE UNDER
SUPERVISION OF TREE AND LANDSCAPE COMMITTEE TO ACT AS
Ms. Robertson suggested adding requirement that all cut-down
trees be replaced, but Mr. Salvage disagreed. Mr. Reyazi
suggested they be replanted on another lot since the lot under
consideration has many trees already. Ms. Robertson suggested
turning the issue over to Tree &Landscape, and Mr. Marshall
suggested letting them deal with reasonable replacement. A fourth condition was added:
4) THAT THE TREE AND LANDSCAPE COMMITTEE REVIEW AND
RECOMMEND REPLACEMENT FOR THE REMOVED TREES.
MR. STANSBURY SECONDED, AND IT WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.

Joe Hickman, 326 N. Granger Street '
Mr. Hickman showed pictures of the existing front door and wishes tp replace it with a four-panel door with archway, brass trim, and etched glass and put the old door on the north side of the house. He would also like to replace the windows on the north side and add a 32"x36" window where a window used to be. It would be slightly different from the windows already there. MR. STANSBURY MOVED TO APPROVE APPLICATION. MR. SALVAGE
SECONDED, AND IT WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.
Alexandra R. Cavanaugh, 127 West Maple Street
Ms. Cavanaugh stated that upon removing the rotted roof over
the porch, it looked better without the roof and railing. She
wants to put in a door with columns flat to the wall. Other
houses in the neighborhood are more sophisticated aesthetically,
of a different style, and she thinks her house would fit in
better with these changes. They want to remove 'the fishtail
siding and replace with asbestos-looking siding.
Mr. Reyazi stated that all porches in the neighborhood have
roofs, and this project is not compatible with the renovated
structures in the district. A porch with railings is a very
common feature, and this plan does not appear to conform with
criteria in the ordinance.
After more discussion and recommendations to Ms. Cavanaugh,
Mr. Stansbury suggested tabling application until a full board is
present. Ms. Robertson added that porches are neighborly and
keep people outside.
MR. STANSBURY MOVED TO TABLE APPLICATION. MR. SALVAGE
SECONDED, AND MOTION WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.
Herbert Smith, 329 Summit Street
Mr. Smith wishes to to build an addition to the house for a
closet with roof and siding to match existing house. The project
will need a variance by BZBA for setbacks. Mr. Reyazi has not
spoken with the neighbor, and Mr. Smith said she is moving Members agreed it away. was architecturally acceptak

APPROVAL. MR. STANSBURY SECONDED, AND IT WAS UNANIMOUSLY
Gary Haga, 746 Newark Road
Mr. Haga wishes to place a lawn shed more than 100' from the road, which will need BZBA approval for setbacks. Mr. Reyazi
stated that since the shed is on property in the TCOD, it needs GPC approval, but Mr. Salvage thought the TCOD not applicable because the shed would be beyond the TCOD. He wanted to
recognize that GPC does not have review here and to just pass it along to BZBA.
Ms. Robertson suggested that the shed agree in appearance with the house and garage.
James F. Crates, 339 East Maple
Mr. Crates wishes to replace the existing worn-out fence with a similar picket fence and move it farther back from the front to within 2' of the side property line. In the rear he is
moving it within 12' of the property line.
MR. SALVAGE MOVED TO APPROVE APPLICATION; MR. STANSBURY
SECONDED, AND IT WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.
Trent and Claudia Meteer, 1098 Newark-Granville Road
The Meteers wish to subdivide their property, which meets
requirements in ordinances except that of an additional curbcut.
After subdivision, the Meteer' s house will be on 1. 43 acres and
the new lot, 0. 756 acres. Ms. Meteer said that they are moving
away and want to split the lot beforehand. A contract for sale
of the house is currently pending the condition of a lot split.
She did not realize she needed to come before GPC. She stated
that she has problems with Mr. Reyazi' s recommendation for a
shared driveway because it would destroy the architectural design
and their need for the drive where it is. Their driveway is the
only one in that block, and one more driveway would not generate
very much extra traffic.
Mr. Stansbury would like to table the application until a
full GPC lS available to provide input, but Ms. Meteer stressed
her anxiety that approval be granted so the sale can proceed.
Shea- ]e=ady has a pcrmit from TemFr-edericks and Doug Tailfed* :
Other GPC members were for the plan, so Mr. Stansbury agreed to approve but with reluctance in order to expedite the matter.
Mr. Salvage thought it inappropriate to ask for a shared
driveway. » 4M»oR.AKSALVJA9GEVMOVEr*D T1O AFP-PRO-VE>1A3P)P7LIC-ATION. MR. STANSBURY

John and Eva Montgomery, Munson Street
The Montgomerys wish to subdivide their property south of dMiuantseonlyand sell it to Lyle King, who owns the property imme- to the north. Mr. Reyazi stated that all lots resulting
from subdivision in CSD district must be contiguous to a dedi- cated public ROW. Therefore, this will be combined with Mr.
King' s lot.
MR. STANSBURY MOVED TO APPROVE THE LOT SPLIT WITH THE
CONDITION THAT IT BE MADE PART OF LOT 6 AS SHOWN ON THE MAP. MR. SALVAGE SECONDED, AND IT WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.
Joe Hickman explained that the guidelines resulted from a study by the Street Lighting Committee. They recommend a sepa- rate requirement for commercial ahd residential lights. Mr. Hickman showed pictures of the proposed lights and described their advantages. The only place requiring new poles would be 10 poles in the downtown district. New subdivisions would be
required to adhere with the approved lights. Mr. Hickman said
AEP considers the current lights wasteful and in need of
replacement. The new lights would be more attractive and more
efficient, though more expensive initially.
Mr. Salvage asked whether Granville would have a contract

contract with them. Mr. Hickman added that Village councif irconsidering
street light replacement, not lighting guidelines.
Mr. Marshall suggested that if people want a similar light to
Holophane' s, they could come in for a variance, but Mr. Stansbury
felt that would defeat the purpose. Mr. Salvage suggested
saying: "or approved equivalent."
Mr. Marshall said that AEP will no longer service the old
incandescent lights, and they will do the replacement work over a
period of 6 years.
Ms. Robertson suggested having just the esplanade style,
rather than have one for commercial and one for residential
areas 1 Mr. Stansbury agreed. Mr. Salvage wanted a contract that
wouldp,)rotect everyone on price with HOophayn>Le.._ _r£c,5- *+4 - Mr. Marshall will take these comments to Village Council, and Mr. Hickman will rewrite the draft.
1. Mr. Reyazi feels it important for him to introduce those agenda items which have updated material so that everyone will have the same information. He would like to refer to the
particular section in the ordinance which is relevant to the application. Members agreed with this suggestion, but Mr.
Salvage would prefer a full membership before new policies are adopted.
Salvage would like someond to provide water pitcher
3. Mr. Reyazi thought slides would be helpful when considering applications.
Finding of Fact:
MR. SALVAGE MOVED TO APPROVE THOSE ITEMS UNDER OLD BUSINESS TONIGHT AND NEW BUSINESS WITH THE EXCEPTION OF THE CAVANAUGH APPLICATION. MR. SAG@6-*SECONDED, AND IT WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED. 49 -
