Lighting Guidelines
Mr. Reyazi would like to use the Lighting Guidelines as part Of the subdivision regulations and part of the zoning ordinances. If we adopt these guidelines, they will require V.C. approval then come back to GPC as modifications to subdivision requirements. Rather than just a guide, the guidelines need to have language that says GPC can use its judgment on applications. Mr. Myers recom- mended that Mr. Reyazi upgrade the language on the guidelines to grant GPC authorization to have flexibility to change requirements. How much flexibility GPC has and what modifications are required, stated Ms. Montgomery, would depend on each situation. Mr. Stans- bvaurryianacdede.d that without flexibility, applicants would need to get a Some GPC members like shoebox fixtures, and Ms.
Robertson thought there could be a statement saying that GPC has authority to vary fixtures.
fixturMesr. Myers suggested higher lights than 12dv'.£iB. uilding-mounted are a third style. Mr. Salvage likes see*ff-lights in St

Joe Hickman, 326 North Granger Street
Mr. Hickman stated that he wishes to modify the previously
approved application by adding a single 8' garage door of the same type adjacent to the already approved 18' wide overhead door, which would now be 16' wide. This way he can get three vehicles in the
garage. 5ALVAG- F
MR. STANSBURY MOVED TO APPROVE APPLICATION; MS. ROBERTSON
SECONDED, AND IT WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.
Village Brewing Company, 128 E. Broadway, Thomas Fuller
This application for an emergency exit from second floor was tabled at the last meeting, pending a change in roofing materials.
Mr. Reyazi reported the concerns expressed at the BZBA meet- ing, 1) ownership of the alley, 2) drop-down stairway, 3)
turning the stairway toward the back, (4) bridging the stairway across to Mr. Blackstone' s building, (5) directing the stairway to the back parking lot. BZBA tabled the application, pending further discussion between applicants and Blackstones and with the Building Code people.
includMer. Martin reported that they redesigned the stairway to a metal roof. He would prefer a stationary stairway to a swing-down one. Swing-down stairs are no longer in the Building Codes, but exceptions may be made if nothing else could be built. This would require a letter from the Village to the Building Code people. The stairs may not exit to the parking lot because that lot is private property. They would have difficulty directing the stairs to the north because of utilities in place there.
MR. SALVAGE MOVED TO TAKE UP THE ISSUE PREVIOUSLY TABLED. MR.
WILKENFELD SECONDED, AND MOTION WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.
MR. MYERS MOVED TO APPROVE APPLICATION AS MODIFIED, WITH A
METAL ROOF, COLOR TO BE STAFF-APPROVED, STAIRS PAINTED BLACK, AS PER DRAWING WHICH IS PART OF THE APPLICATION. MR. SALVAGE
SECONDED, AND IT WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.

Work Session:
L.E. King &Son, Inc.,Excavating, 143 Munson St.
Creston King explained that the existing building is an old sale barn, which of similar they would like to replace with a metal building size and shape just behind the existing building. Then they would tear down the old building and build a gravel parking area.
Mr. Reyazi was concerned about storm water management and he feels the Village Engineer would not be satisfied with the plan provided. Perhaps a grading plan would be helpful. Mr. King
stated that they are at the lowest point of the community and water will run to the creek. Lyle King added that the water goes into a basin and under the old track; however, Mr. Reyazi stated that the ordinances require a storm water plan since this is a new develop- ment in the CSD and in the floodplain. Creston King stated that
Jerry Turner, engineer, had no problem with the plan. Mr. Salvage thought since they are not applying for a change in use, a development plan would not be required, but Mr. Myers referred him to Sec. 1167. 03 of the code. The King design is not a big development but must adhere to requirements.
Mr. Reyazi added that it also requires screening, and he would suggest a solid fence rather than a chainlink one. Creston King
nsoairdththey would plant pine trees, and that there is no fence on the side.
withouMtr. Reyazi told the Kings they can start on the foundation a building certificate, but he will not issue a certificate
until the Village Engineer approves the plan. Although this is a work session, it could be changed to an application with stipula- tions.
MR. SALVAGE MOVED TO MODIFY THE AGENDA TO INCLUDE THE
KING APPLICATION AS NEW BUSINESS. MS. ROBERTSON
SECONDED, AND MOTION WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.

In the packets are various traffic reports and a memo from
Streets and Sidewalks Committee. Mr. Reyazi said that in the
spirit of giving Fackler' s more direction it' s important that GPC make decisions and provide guidelines regarding issues applicants raised last time, i. e.,parking, setbacks, access and circulation of traffic.
Setbacks. Mr. Myers stated that according to the code, GPC
may reduce setbacks, although TCOD requires 100'.Adjacent proper- ties are set back 70' and we are almost bound to 70'. Future
wsiiddee.ning of Cherry Valley Road would further reduce setback on that Mr. Wilkenfeld preferred adhering to the 100' minimum to
protect scenic vistas and maintain open space. The Cherry Valley
side should be more pedestrian oriented.
Circulation and Access. Members felt that there needs to be
more stacking availability for the bank drive-in and that curbcuts must be limited. The drive-in should not interfere with pedestrian
walkways. Joint access to adj acent properties must be considered. Maybe a right-turn-only exit should be planned at the bank. Mr.
Reyazi thought the orientation of the building could be changed for better circulation, and Ms. Robertson suggested flip-flopping the Plan, which would put the restaurant on the Cherry Valley side and put the drive-through in the back. Mr. Myers thought a service
road would be a good idea.
Parking. GPC has provided suggestions to the applicant regarding parking.
The applicant has been given a lot of suggestions and this has taken a lot of time. The applicant is not even here tonight to hear our thoughts.
Finding of Fact:
MR. SALVAGE MOVED TO ADOPT THE APPLICATIONS FOR ITEMS C AND D
UNDER OLD BUSINESS AND THE KING APPLICATION AS FORMAL FINDING OF FACT. MR. WILKENFELD SECONDED, AND FINDING OF FACT WAS
UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.
Adjournment: 10: 20 p.m. Next Meetings: December 8 and 22
