New Business:

Spring Hills Baptist Church, 1820 Newark-Granville Road

The McKnight Development Corp is requesting a 16 sq. ft. wooden contractor' s sign for identification purposes. MR.

SALVAGE MOVED TO APPROVE APPLICATION; MR. SHULMAN SECONDED, AND

IT WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.

James Young, Kussmaul Gallery, 140 East Broadway -Signs

Mr. Young is applying for (1) a 6' awning sign, (3) two

window signs, and a (3) sandwich board: (1) Mr. Tailford showed

color samples of the dark purple awning, which will have 4" letters across the drop. 2) The identical gold leaf window

signs are under 1 sq. ft. each. The front of the building is

green, and the whole building will be repainted the existing pink

color. (3) The sandwich board is the existing 2-sided projecting wall sign from 103 N. Prospect, to be hinged and to have its address changed. MR. SALVAGE MOVED TO APPROVE APPLICATION FOR

AWNING SIGN, WINDOW SIGNS, AND SANDWICH BOARD; MR. SHULMAN SECONDED, AND IT WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED. This approval

includes a variance for three signs per business instead of two.

Mr. Young is asking for comments on a proposed wall sign to

be hung above the awning. The size is proportional with Hare Hollow and Woeste, constructed of sandblasted redwood, stained muted shades of pink and teal and stained wood tone, 16"high and

6' 3"wide with 9"letters. The sign is slightly larger than

permitted. Mr. Stansbury thought it would look better shorter,

and Mr. Shulman stated that there would be too many signs for the

business, and consensus agreed with these comments.

The Murphy Group, The Glen at Erinwood -Landscaping

The Murphy Group Landscape Plan has been considered by the

Tree and Landscape Commission, and the present plan was changed

to adhere to their recommendations. The plan includes a variety

of trees and will comply with the code except that trees may be

Planted every 70-80 feet instead of 50 because of existing trees

and driveways. Mr. Siegel felt that 75' spacing would be adequate

for an established area, whereas a new development should require

50'. Mr. Ellinger described the plan for the 2"diameter trees,

which are all on private property and are designed to screen the

properties.

MR. SHULMAN MOVED TO APPROVE THE LANDSCAPING PLAN AS FAR AS

IT FOLLOWS THE RECOMMENDATIONS OF THE TREE AND LANDSCAPE COMMISSION.

ALSO, SCREENING FOR THE PUMP HOUSE WILL BE DETERMINED BY

THE VILLAGE AND THE MURPHYS AND UPON ADVICE OF THE TREE AND

LANDSCAPE COMMISSION. MR. SALVAGE SECONDED, AND IT WAS UNANIMOUSLY

APPROVED.

Brew's Cafe, 128 East Broadway -Sidewalk Cafe

The owners of Brew' s are reapplying for permission for a

sidewalk cafe with umbrellas. No changes have been made last over year' s approval; Village Council has approved advertising on the umbrellas. MR. SALVAGE MOVED TO APPROVE APPLICATION FOR A

CAFE EXACTLY LIKE LAST YEAR' S. MR. STANSBURY SECONDED, AND

MOTION WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.

Victoria' s Parlour, 134 East Broadway -Sidewalk Cafe

Hal Jackson is reapplying for permission for a sidewalk cafe

with umbrellas. No changes have been made over last year' s

approval; Village Council has approved advertising on the

umbrellas. MR. SALVAGE MOVED TO APPROVE APPLICATION FOR A CAFE

EXACTLY LIKE LAST YEAR' S. MR. STANSBURY SECONDED, AND MOTION WAS

UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.

Work Session:

Bob Evans, Cherry Valley at Rt. 16

With reference to Mr. Tailford' s list of still unclarified

items, Dan Havener showed drawings of what has transpired since

the last work session: they moved the parking to the back and

relocated the retention basin for storm water. Mr. Myers thought

the pond could be relocated in a less obtrusive spot. 1) They

eliminated a portion of the red roof and (2) reduced the number

of roof lights. 4) {see lighting plan} They reduced the

lighting of the Bob Evans sign, which is internally lit. There

will be lights underneath the awning.

2

4) Mr Myers wondered why the awning needed to be lit,

Particularly if there is no walkway explained underneĀ«ath, and Mr. Havener that this is done to all their restaurants, but he thought the lighting could be looked at again with an eye to reducing it some more. Mr. Havener stated that they aim for a 1' candle minimum, and Mr. Shulman does not want the site to be brighter than Wendy' s. The maximum should be 10' candles. Ms.

Rnootbheinrtgson stated that there still was nothing unique about it, related to Granville. Mr. Havener stated the necessity

for corporate recognition.

3) Mr. Havener stated that an overall access plan will be

Prepared when it has been determined who will occupy the next property.

5) Mr Myers thought the landscaping should be continuous,

with evergreen trees, with a hedge along Cherry Valley Road for screening.

6) Mr. Havener will propose sidewalks up to the edge of

their property, up to the future motel. He does not feel they

are responsible for the pedestrian crossing, and Mr. Tailford

stated that the V*see*w*ill put in a pushb- utton crossing signal. 4-

Some other items left unfinished:

1) The overall site plan will be provided with the plat.

2) Soil information will be provided.

3) The treelawn width will be 6'.

4) Streetlights will be coordinated with SuperAmerica and

approved by GPC.
