MR. WERNET MOVED TO APPROVE APPLICATION AS SUBMITTED. MR.
MYERS SECONDED, AND MOTION WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.
Fackler' s 1960 Newark-Granville Road
A. Review. Mr. John Oney, architect, presented an overview
and stated they will not require ordinances for the proposed
complex. They have further refined the plans and incorporated GPC
suggestions from previous meeting. He described the new location
with parking in the rear, pedestrian walkways, curbcuts and a
roadway around the perimeter of the site. The parking slots have
been reduced from 150 to 100. The 70' setback line- is consistent
with other buildings nearby, and landscaping will be planted in
lieu of variation from 100' setback.
B. Site Plan. Allen alevationt>" Baker, architect, described the Granville. stating h- e':w-anted-to makea--f' it-w-itil'-hib-0erceptionof-- the building.The building is 30' high, and parking will be behind There are three large porch areas outside, repeated inside, and a wrought-iron fence at the service area. The bank wdriilvl elo-thorkoufignhisihsedbe. tween the bank and the main building. All sides Material is navajo white cedar stone with seal baereaac.h green trim. Air conditioning units will be in the "well"
C. Lighting. There will be very little signage on the building. Softer ground lighting will make the facility more inviting. Lights will be 50-70 watts with 100 watts lighting the chimney. Fixtures will be in the ground and hidden by landscaping. Lights in the parking area probably meet the code.
D. Signage. 1) A 24 sq. ft. sign will be in the stone retaining wall at the corner, with raised lettering and lit. 2)
Another sign on the exterior of the building. (3-6) Two two-sided directional signs at each entrance, 1 sq. ft, 3' high made out of the same stone with raised lettering and lit. 7-8) Bank signs.
9-)Signs below the soffits. Specification is required on lighting for these. The size of the facility and frontage on two roads demands more signage than in the code. Only the name of the complex will be on the retaining wall, rather than individual businesses.
E. Landscaping. Mr. Fackler stated they will adhere to the code with landscaping around the site and provide maple trees to shade the perimeter. They will soften driving lanes with 3'
mounding. Mounding proved to be controversial, and more design is sought. They like to see all-season color and low maintenance.
F. Utilities. Tim Snider reported on the sanitary/storm
sewer and stated they have discussed these matters with Mr. Murphy. He has also talked with Jerry Turner about questions raised in his
letter of February 18, 1998.
G. Staff Concerns. Refer to Mr. Reyazi' s letter of 2/18/98)
l. GPC members ask that there be curbing throughout.
2. The curb return radius must be 25' but Mr. Reyazi prefers 50' for right turns.
3. Some truck backing-up will be necessary. There needs to
be an off-street loading ramp.
4. Cross hatching of sidewalks should be subtle. Be sure to
cross-hatch handicapped accesses.
5. The width and material of sidewalks was controversial at
this meeting. Consider cobbling at the cross sections. Consensus
liked 8' sidewalks. Mr. Reyazi will check the pathway plan.
8. Directional signs and stop signs at intersections will be
on final plan. Find a more attractive post for stop signs.
9. Leave this to the engineers.
10. --- ' -A'»cc-ess will need to be shared with any future neighbor. 11':Sta'cking room 'seems to have«b' eah'-increased; but -any joint access in the future will need to be addressed. Left turns might be more difficult with a median strip on Cherry Valley. 12. and 13. Left turns were discussed at length. Joe Ridgeway, traffic engineer, stated that for their study they used existing traffic rather than anticipated traffic, which determined that no left turns will be required. Consensus preferred left turn lanes subject to agreement by the traffic engineer. GPC would like to see on N-G Road a 50' radius with curb and decelaration. On CV, a left turn at a size to be determined by staff. 14. Any new development will have to dictate where cross- access and joint-use driveways would go. 15. Ordinances require a street lighting plan. Additional lighting wOKill be required as CV is developed, but not now.
18. Applicant to provide a lot coverage plan (65%). 2109.. Bike parking is not required but would be nice. OK
21. On display tonight.
23. No AC units on roof.
varian2c4e. s.Some flexibility is understandable. GPC can grant sign Most of these signs will not be visible from the
street. With this facility, the signage would be less than what it would be for individual businesses. Mr. Burriss wants applicant to provide rendering of signs for entire complex in more detail, as well as foot-candle lighting.
25. 26. 27. 28. OK
29. Mr. Ridgeway does not think left turns onto N-G Road should be prohibited because it forces more traffic onto the intersection. Traffic should sort itself out. Mr. Wernet prefers
the right-in/right-out designation now in order to not confuse drivers by changing it later on. Others would like to see left
turns now and as the need arises, eliminate left turns. Mr. Myers
would make it a condition of zoning that it be addressed at a later time. Consensus agreed to full access on N-G Road until such time
as there is a connector to Galway and/or a significant traffic problem at the entrance.
1. Mr. Burris suggested placing the ATM machine inside the
bank, and Mr. Fackler will talk to the bank people.
The outside eating area must be pedestrian-friendly. 2
3. Underground pneumatic banks at the bank would be nice.
4. GPC is not quite ready for a vote
Mr. Myers summarized the discussion and pending items:
1. Parking islands and lots will be curbed; access drives will
not be curbed.
2. Curb radius to be brought into compliance with
1117 .03 (r) (c) .
3. Crosswalks within parking area to be marked on the plat.

8. A left turn lane be contructed on C. V. Road at entrance to site and be built to the satisfaction of Village Engineer and Village Traffic Consultant.
