Fackler' s, 1960 Newark-Granville Road
John Oney stated that he and Tim Snider are here to prdvide
answers to the questions raised at the last meeting.
Parking. Considerable discussion ensued on how much parking
was required for the Fackler complex and the delic/onvenience cen- ter in particular. Mr. Myers preferred to view the entire complex with access and circulation rather than requiring so many spaces for the deli. A convenience center, somewhere between a restaurant and a deli, is a rather arbitrary figure, and the group decided on 75-90 spaces with overflow parking for 20-30 on the grass for possible paving in the future if necessary. Storm Sewer. The applicants are talking with Mr. Murphy about running a storm sewer across the property, and Mr. Snider will con- sult further with Mr. Murphy. It will tie in with the drain on Galway. This issue needs to be pinned down before the parking lot aisppfrionvaalli.zed. Interconnecting parking lots could be a condition of also. There needs to be a connection with the Burrows property Mr. lMyers wants the applicants to think about this space as a circLue flat tiTounrnsyfstem with islands rather than Just a parking lot. rom Newark/Granville Road.

Mr. Wilkenfeld stated that GPC is charged with making the traffic work as well as it can, so it seems that the idea of elimi- nating curbcuts and working with traffic plans throughout the en- tire area is a good idea.

GPC members wanted to study the traffic plans some more. Lot Coverage. The applicants show the coverage at 62%c,om- pared to the 65%allowable. They want to make the facility pedes- trian friendly.
Setbacks. The setback in the TCOD along NewarkG/ ranville Road is 100' but Erinwood and Village Green have 70' setbacks, and that is what the applicants are seeking. They want to have parking in the rear. In a previously developed area where the setback is
less,,an applicant may apply for the same. Mr. Myers asked whether the porch was in the 100' line, for it is not unusual for porches to encroach into the setback line. He would like to see where the
facade is in relation to the entire plan. Mr. Wilkenfeld cautioned
afubtouurte.setting a precedent toward variances in TCOD setbacks in the Mr. Oney will work on this issue some more. Building Height. Mr. Oney stated that the building height is 37',whereas the code specifies 30'. Rather than a bunch of small buildings, they have designed one big building and the percentage of frontage is less. If the plans considered a flat building without a roof grade, they could achieve 30'. The center portion
of the building is 37' and they could lower it, but it would not be aesthetically pleasing. The new code specifies 1%stories.
Ms. Robertson thinks it makes sense to go with the new code where height is no problem. Mr. Salvage stated that the problem with the new code is lot coverage. Mr. Snider does not want to go for variances to BZBA, but Mr. Myers would hate to see them compro- mise the architecture because of the 7, difference in height. Mr. Wince affirmed that they will go before BZBA.

Mr. Wince said that easements would be granted. Mr. Myers stated that any ROW easements are part of preliminary plat approval, and he wants to hear from the Village Engineer whether he feels additional ROW is something to look at prior to approval of site plan. Mr. Snider thought they could cut down on the landscaping, but Mr. mMaYdeers. stated that this is to be resolved before further approval is

Tom Fuller is applying for approval of an emergency egress 4' wide stairway on the west wall of the building into the 10' alley- way.

Gerry Martin said they need to keep the emergency stairway in the front, away from the kitchen. The alarm door on stairway opens only from the inside and is not to be used for ingress.
External stairways must be covered, according to code. Mr. Reyazi does not think asphalt shingles will look very good; canvas eawxpneinngsivweo.uld look better. Metal would look good but would be Mr. Martin wants to match the color of the building bricks. This stairway would narrow the alley, but GPC is only concerned with architecture. Mr. Myers suggested the applicant look into commercial roofing materials.

George Fackler, 2326 Newark-Granville Road
Mr. Fackler provided a memo with some of the items requested
at the last meeting.
Fence. The new fence to replace the chainlink will be a 54" four-rail New Albany type, which will need BZBA approval. Greenhouse. The lath shade house will be replaced with an architectural styleg"reenhouse with rigid panels rather than plastic.
The house on the east will be replaced with a garden center and specialty shop for gifts and woodstoves. Barn will have a rustic hometown feel.
Mr. Reyazi asked for more information for the development,
which is in the new SBD district. This is a nonconforming
uresqe,uiarinndgthe purpose is to bring uses into conformity. Items further study:
1) ingress/ egress, parking, access points
2) distance to the ROW lines; TCOD requires 100' setback. The fact that the facility already exists and will use the same footprint may gain some consideration, i.e.,setbacks 3) check on height of buildings; siting plan, showing all existing structures there now; 4) site plan showing planned structures and their appearance. It' s impossible to evaluate buildings in isolation; they have an impact on each other.
5) Square footage of all buildings
6) Off-street loading locations
7) Landscaping plan ' -
8) Schedule a public to decide hearing with Village Council. They need whether this a modification or new construction.
Lighting Guidelines and "GPCR- ules and Regulations" These will be first on the agenda next time.
