Granville School System,248 New Burg Street -Sign
The school system is requesting a blue and white identification sign,25' from the
Pavement at the high school,which technically falls under Section 1189.04,Exemptions,of the
sign ordinance. They are requesting approval of the 48 sq,ft ground sign,which is 5' in height,
and internally lit. No one from the school was present to answer questions.
Ms. Montgomery was concerned about the size of the sign,which would be much larger
than the one at the middle school.

ATTEMPT TO REDUCE THE SIZE OF THE SIGN,2 ()THAT THEY COORDINATE
LOCATION OF SIGN WITH THE VILLAGE STREET DIRECTOR,AND ( 3)THAT THEY

SECONDED,AND MOTION WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.
John and Julie Strohmeyer,201 North Pearl
The owners altered the previously rejected plans by lining up the fence with the house,
and they have proposed an arbor with lattice. The picket fence is to be 42"high white-painted
cedar. Mr. Shulman thought that eight 4x6 beams 15' long will be quite heavy. MR. SALVAGE MOVED TO APPROVE APPLICATION SUBJECT TO THE FENCE
BEING NOT MORE THAN 42"HIGH. MR. SHULMAN SECONDED,AND IT WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.
Conceptual Plan -Hersam Property,West Broadway
Jeff Kobunski presented a conceptual plan for four properties to be built into the hillside.
The hill was a concern for the GPC,as well as driveway access and setbacks. The setback
needs to be 50' minimum in TCOD without having to appear before BZBA. Mr. Kobunsky believes that no trees in the first 50' must be removed. Because of their location in the TCOD,
plans for each individual house must be approved when they are ready and must include tree removal. Mr. Shulman questioned whether Lot 2 on the plan was buildable. Mr. Stansbury is concerned about a driveway up thelsteep Gast slope,and Mr. Kobunski feels this is manageable.
Neighbor Pat Winter was concerned about safety on the drive entering from the east
behind the house and drainage problems following a rainstorm. Mr. Kobunski said that they are not planning to use the back driveway except to service Lot No. 1.
In summary,GPC is generally reseptive to the location of the houses but had 61 k ./«ok«e reservations Mr Shulman stated that he will has some questions when the actual plans come in, regarding house placement,tree-removal,and placement of utilities to minimize tree- removal.
Mr. Salvage would like to see a lot of the steepness of the driveway reduced,and recommended
that an architect take a look at this. The side setback needs to be 14'.Mr. Shulman suggested work session, a preceded by site inspection,when individual plans come in.
Ms. Robertson offered a formal resolution to Mr. Tailford on his departure to be Zoning
Administrator with the City of Gahanna:
We the members of Granville Planning Commission thank you for the
many years of hard work and dedication that you brought to our town of
Granville and wish you well in the future.
Mr. Tailford responded: " I will miss working with all of you and I am leaving a job I
truly love,but this is a move I have to make."
Adjournment: 8:30 p.m.
