MR. WILKENFELD MOVED TO APPROVE MINUTES AS CORRECTED AND MR. SALVAGE SECONDED. MOTION WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.
Citizens Comments: None
Old Business:
First Presbyterian Church, 110 W. Broadway
Mr. Acklin reported that following meetings with the architect and a review of programming needs, they have come up with (1) modifications addressing concerns of the GPC. 2) They tried to
connect the addition more to the Christian Education (CE) Building than to the church. (3) Regarding massing, they moved the eastern 1fa,c0e00back and reduced size of the fellowship room and offices by sq. ft. 4) The eastern portico has been reduced. 5) Trees
identified for removal will be retained. 6) Building material will be textured stucco.
whichMr. Wilkenfeld began the discussion by asking about the roof, drawingseemed to be massive, and Mr. Miller, architect, said the further was "sort of out of scale and would be lower."Mr. Acklin described the windows as being a transition between the two buildings. Mr. Jack Burris added architectural commentary describ- ing the goal of maintaining historical touches. The unscored stucco makes a separate step between the two buildings.
Parking. BZBA has final say on variances, and Ms. Robertson suggested recommending that required spaces be waived in light of the fact, that it would be impossible to conform to code. Mr.
Salvage wanted it officially meet: parking noted that the application does not requirements and· BZBA approval 'is required. Mr: Stansbury did not want to state any recommendations, but merely note that it was discussed.
Ms. Robertson asked about a space on south elevation and was told that was the dishwashing area with storage on second floor. She would like to have windows added there.
Setback. The CE building is in the right of way, and the Village needs to grant approval on whether applicant can build in the ROW. Nothing has been done officially yet, although Mr. iHsisckumesan. did not anticipate any opposition but there may be legal The portico would be in the ROW.
The problem, Mr. Bob Seith stated, is that Locust is not a dedicated drive but a piece of the public square owned by all the citizens. It' s a vacating issue, a historic issue, and he wondered if this is an appropriate use of the public square. Although Mr. Seith was carefully listened to, this is not a setback issue. Dorothy Garrett thought we needed to address the fact of someone' s property value and the fact that he bought the property on the public square and then learned it was a public egress. Mr. Salvage stated that Village Council decided this was OK. Although members agreed that the ROW was not a real issue with GPC, it is hereby noted that it was discussed. Mr. Seith mentioned his architectural concerns, and details were provided by Mr. Miller. Mr. Seith would like more setback on tthhee wfaecsatdean. d feels there is insufficient degree of definition on He feels it needs more work. Mr. Salvage wondered why Mr. Seith apparently changed his mind, as the new plan would seem to satisfy his expectations better. Mr. Seith quoted his statement at last meeting, "I would prefer it not be there at all, but if it had to be there, I appreciate what is happening.M"uch of what is hsaimppielanring on the east is a big improvement and he is looking for a bit of life to the west side. Mr. Miller responded by saying the lower panel of the big glass window is not totally resolved yet. He has a problem with spandrels and too much glass historically.
Distance Between Buildings. They are not expanding on the west side and it' s in line with the CE building. Mr. Acklin said it would cover the existing sidewalk. Mr. Reyazi added that it' s more than 10' to Mr. Seith' s property line.
from Lot Coverage exceeds 50 per cent and would require a variance BZBA.
Massing. A subjective matter. It looks smaller than the first plan and the east entrance is not so grand. Mr. Myers thought this plan came a long way and the connection with CE building a big improvement. The smaller portico is good, and the ngelaigshsboprahnoeolsd. are better, the design fits better into the

met all criteria under 1161. 02.

MR. MYERS MOVED TO APPROVE THE APPLICATION, PHASE I OF AN ALTERNATIVE ZONING CERTIFICATE {1161, 03.D}M;R. WILKENFELD SECONDED, AND IT WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.
Greg Ross, IGA, 484 South Main Street
The Finding of Fact from the last meeting has to be adopted as formal decision of GPC. A few changes were made in the text provided:
B) End sentence with "Ordinances."
D) Change to "Granting a variance to the IGA would give it a special. privilege that is denied by the ordinances to other lands and structures in the same zoning district." E) Change to "in.vo.lv.ing the sign. In addition, it may be
nceacrerisesdary to move it when improvements to South Main Street are out. The general
MR. SALVAGE MOVED TO APPROVE THE FINDING OF FACT FOR IGA SHOPPING CENTER AS MODIFIED. MR. MYERS SECONDED, AND IT WAS
UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.
Spring Hills Baptist Church, 1820 Newark-Granville Road
Although nobody was present tonight, the existing sign is 3' 6"x6' and the proposed sign is the same. This sign would be over the maximum of 10 sq. ft, so would require a variance. The 720 hSaqs. ftc.ormreecntetiodned on the application is probably a typo but nobody it.
The application will remain tabled.
New Business:
Bob Hersam and Jeff Kobunski, 27, 28, and 29 Thornewood Subdivision
The applicants wish to build houses on three lots in Thorne- wood Subdivision. They would be 50' from ROW, which places them in vthideedTC. OD. There is village water available, but sewer must be pro- because Mr. Hersam said there is one house there already, and back. of the topography, the three must be built less than 100' Mr. Hersam and Bob Erhard described the possible sewer connections and said it is still undecided. Before working
further, they wanted a positive reaction from GPC.
Mr. Myers stated that he would like to see a graphic depiction. The purpose of the TCOD is to protect and preserve the visual qualities and rural character of Granville, and it would not appear that this application would adhere to 1176 requirements in

granting a 50' setback. Mr. Salvage stated it would be hard to force the houses to be set farther back.
Mr. Erhard thought this would still limit access points curb and openings and promote architectural continuity. Mr. Wilkenfeld
does not think that is quite true and wants to adhere to the code. bBuuiltd.Mr. Salvage stated that would make it hard for people to These houses would be above the level of the street and many trees would remain. Mr. Myers did not know how we would know that without more information on what impact would occur. He wants to see a proposed grading plan and to know what the impact would be at 90' setback. He would rather leave the requirement at 100' unless applicants can show a grade impact plan. Mr. Erhard said aPblaonust are incomplete because they wanted to know what GPC thought the idea.
Mr. Stansbury asked whether they could design a house to fit in the land within the TCOD. Mr. Wilkenfeld added that he heard
George Parker speak to the Land Conservancy about creative land planning and clustering. Mr. Myers thought houses could be designed to fit on a slope, but these drawings are not it.
Mr. Herson urged members to view the site. The concept for
Thornewood was from the 19605 and since then the Village added TCOD requirements. Mr. Erhard said clustering has not been considered but there may be restrictions with single-family housesMY.-. -Myers thought that even with rezoning, clustering on the flat land would be an improvement and should be considered.
Mr. Erhard wants to table the application, and Ms. Montgomery thought the next step should be a work session.
Mr. Salvage the owner should have the right to build on his lots within the regulations, and GPC needs to come up with a way wfohratheivmer.to build houses, whether clustering, varying TCOD, or
Mr. Wilkenfeld would like to see color photos of the sites.
MR. SALVAGE MOVED TO TABLE APPLICATION; MR. WILKENFELD
SECONDED, AND IT WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.
Wildwood Park, Granville Recreation Commission

MidO-hio Development, 1943 NewarkG- ranville Road
Mr. Reyazi stated that according to 1175.05, any change in SBD
needs to be approved by GPC. This is a permitted use and it complies with ordinance.
MS. ROBERTSON MOVED TO APPROVE APPLICATION; MR. WILKENFELD
SECONDED.
Mr. Salvage does not think this should ever have come to GPC because a zoning certificate is to build a new building, but Ms· Robertson disagreed and stated that we should be glad Mr. Reyazi has read the code so carefully.
