Minutes of March 17, 1997:

utes as presented and Mr.

approved.

Ms. Robertson moved to approve min-

Myers seconded. Motion was unanimously

Citizens Comments: Mr. Reyazi stated that tonight' s hearing for Granville Mill is not a public hearing and that anyone who has questions should ask them now.

Mrs. Westall, who lives next door to the Mill property, was concerned about screening, permanence of trees, and drainage. Mr. Westall asked about a landscaping plan. Mr. Reyazi explained that this drainage plan will accommodate storm water and is designed to be independent. There is no guarantee that there will never

be stagnant water, but when the land is graded, the drainage

system will be better than it is now. There will be a soakway.

Eventually a storm sewer will be installed and the applicant will tie into it.

Mrs. Westall also asked about the change in zoning she understood would occur. She thought that the area that was SBD

was to be designated as greenspace and not to be built upon. Mr.

Reyazi stated that the area is too steep to build on. Mr.

Attebury changed the zoning, and the open space was changed to CSD. There is no specific language that says nothing shall be

built there.

Further discussion will take place under Old Business.

Old Business:

Alexandra Cavanaugh, 127 West Maple

Ms. Cavanaugh is resubmitting her original tabled application

and wishes to remove, roof over the front door porch and fish

scales and replace ymiseAk'Sestos siding to match house. She

wants to add pediment and columns at the doorway and molding over

window tops. She showed pictures of a similar porch in the

neighborhood. The porch will have no railing, just columns.

MS. ROBERTSON MOVED TO APPROVE APPLICATION. MR. MYERS

SECONDED, AND IT WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.

Granville Mill, 400 South Main Street

approMvar.l Reyazi explained the background of the conditional granted in September, when the Mill applied for two buildings for fertilizer and garage. Since conditions were not fulfilled by the date specified, application was tabled. The

concerns were of an environmental nature in addition to some engineering concerns. The EPA does not have jurisdiction over the aquifer but the Department of Natural Resources does through tthheeiFr losotadndHaarzdasrd. Overlay District, and the proposed design meets Although there can be no guarantee against contamination, given the standards, it is unlikely it will occur. The Ohio Department of Agriculture has granted the necessary approval.

Bird &Bull reviewed the revised site plan and listed in athdderierssleedtt.er of April 4, 1997, engineering items yet to be

Mr. Myers stated that since the land is CSD, they are coming in for a site plan review, and we are to look at the site plan and if it meets development standards of 1167, we would act accordingly. Since details are needed, should we take action subject to future submissions. Mr. Reyazi feels comfortable with

engineering details, and in September the only outstanding issues were environmental and engineering.

Mr. Myers wanted to see the site plan with buffer area,

landscaping plan, lighting, etc. Mr. Watts stated they changed

the position of the building slightly to save a tree. There will

be gravel roadways with seeding around the buildings. There will be a single row of 4'-5' white pines 15' behind the building.

The buildings will be 2' above the water which cascades down the hill from town.

Ned Roberts stated that traffic on the bikepath is a problem at the Mill. He understood the Evans Foundation will not give a permit for a storm sewer. Mr. Reyazi said Evans will not grant

easement until the Mill agrees not to cross the bikepath, and

since the Mill vehicles need access to buildings across the path, things are at a standstill. Mr. Watts said that was one reason

for moving the fertilizer building across the path.

Mr. Westall stated that with this issue at odds, nothing can

happen. The whole entrance to Granville is important and the

storm sewer should be taken care of. Mr. Reyazi stated the issue

was a Village Council decision. Ms. Montgomery stated that this

has been ongoing at Council, and they could take it under eminent

domain, but that would make nobody happy.

Ms. Robertson asked about traffic across the path, and Mr.

Watts said it will be reduced but not eliminated. She said_a_

The application was for the property only. Mr. Myers thought this suggested selective review and we need to consider development standards. Ms.

f.F,

Ms. Robertson asked about how the Moratorium affects this application, and Mr. Reyazi answered that CSD is not in the Moratorium. It' s not in the TCOD. Mr. Myers did not think the

village should accept plans only 50 per cent complete; any approval would need a lot of conditions, which is a backwards way of doing business. There are no edges of pavement on the plan,

ntoo dlaenvdissecaping nor outdoor lighting.It *should not be necessary a landscape plan tonight, but now we know about the trees and seeding. There should be 20' between pond and building.

It' s a detention pond, not a retention pond, said a repre- sentative of the Mill. Mr. Myers requested spruce instead of white pine to maintain screening capabilities and requested 6'8-' trees or 5'-6' at minimum to screen a 16' building. Grass is to

be at the southeast corner. Trees will line 15' on center all

the way across. This information will constitute a landscaping plan.

Mr. Watts assured the group there would be no trash and no outdoor lighting.

MR. MYERS MOVED TO APPROVE WITH THE UNDERSTANDING THAT (1)

ON THE NORTH SIDE OF BUILDING THERE WILL BE A SINGLE ROW OF

SPRUCE TREES, 152'-0' ON CENTER, MINIMUM 5' HIGH. (2)

SOUTHEAST CORNER WILL BE SEEDED, AND (3) ALL ITEMS MENTIONED

IN THE MEMO (4/4/97) FROM THE CITY ENGINEER BE ADDRESSED TO

THE SATISFACTION OF VILLAGE STAFF. (4) NO ADDITIONAL OUTDOOR
