Lighting Guidelines

r /0

Mr. Salvage contacted Holophane about their recommendations

for lighting parking lots, and neither of the fixtures in our guidelines are recommended. They weulrdpr-efer shoebox lights. He

felt it casts doubt on whether we should approve the guidelines without more clarification. The guidelines we accepted did not

include parking lots, and he thinks we should not try to apply

these guidelines to parking lots. Mr. Reyazi said Holophane was to

have contacted him before this, and he will take this question to

the Holophane engineers.

Ms. Montgomery stated that the Streetlight Committee looked at

lots of different fixtures and chose one based on aesthetics. The

group knew that the chosen light was not total cut-off and

Holophane recommends shoebox lights for parking lots. She felt

there were techniques to minimize the light going behind the

GranVille style light. Mr. Reyazi said that because it is glass

or prisms, the light can be directed, but not as well as metal cutoff

lights.

The GranVille and Esplanade exceed light trespass

guidelines on edges of lot. Can we allow people to light lots from

the outside in or add more lights?

Mr. Reyazi stated that these guidelines were taken from Dublin' s, and they have different fixtures. Mr.

Salvage added that more fixtures may be required to fulfill our guidelines if we cannot use shoeboxes, and they are more expensive. Mr. Wilkenfeld stated that a developer would be required to install lights, but a school is on a tighter budget. Mr. Reyazi

said these guidelines cannot be imposed on the school before being accepted by Village Council.

Mr. Reyazi needs more information and will include possible scenarios regarding lighting a commercial area.

New Business:

Cooperative Nursery School, 115 West Broadway -AROD

Karen

Kobunski stated that the school wishes to build a 48" green vinyl

chainlink fence in the back with steel posts, to enclose the play area. She showed a sample of the fence, and while chainlink is

discouraged, it may be appropriate for a schoolyard. One neighbor,

who has not stated an opinion on the fence, would be affected. The

fence will not be visible from the street.

MS. ROBERTSON MOVED TO APPROVE APPLICATION PENDING WRITTEN

APPROVAL OF THE NEIGHBOR TO THE WEST; MR. WILKENFELD SECONDED,

AND IT WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.

Maryan and Irving Burton, 224 East Broadway -Demolition Permit

Mr. Burton explained in the application that the cement block

garage is leaning and the footer is deteriorated. A carpenter and

masonry man said they could not do anything to save it.

MS. ROBERTSON MOVED TO APPROVE APPLICATION; MR. SALVAGE

SECONDED, AND IT WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.

Granville' Elementary School, North Granger Street

Mr. Reyazi explained that part of the existing school is in

AROD; thus the addition is also subject to AROD review. Lighting

guidelines are not imposed on the applicant.

Dale Gilreath, from SEM Partners, showed the architectural

drawings for the school and the elevation and the landscaping plan.

It is a 40, 000 sq. ft. split face brick and concrete block building

with a band on the side. It will connect with the existing school

at one point, and the one-story addition will front onto Sunrise

Street. The budget limits builders to $75 per sq. ft. The

Regarding the lighting plan, Mr. Gilreath said that 5 shoebox fixtures were planned for the parking lot, totalling $3400.

Mr. Gilreath will ask the engineer to rework the plan, incor- porating wall fixtures and directing the lights to shine with maximum light away from neighbors. Ms. Montgomery thought it would be nice to have GranVille fixtures close to the entrance.

An engineering report is still needed, and there is a question of whether there are enough parking spaces, an issue for BZBA.

MR. SALVAGE MOVED TO APPROVE THE APPLICATION TO BUILD AN ADDITION TO THE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL AS PRESENTED WITH THE

UNDERSTANDING THAT THE LANDSCAPING WILL BE DONE IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE WISHES OF THE TREE AND LANDSCAPE COMMITTEE AND

SUBJECT TO APPROVAL BY THE ENGINEER AND STAFF AND THAT THE

LIGHTING IS SITUATED IN SUCH A WAY AS TO MINIMIZE TRESPASS ONTO NEIGHBORING PROPERTY. MS. ROBERTSON SECONDED, AND MOTION

MR. SALVAGE MOVED TO APPROVE

Mr. Reyazi stated that the only issue GPC must address is that

any setback in TCOD less than 100' requires GPC approval. The 70'

setback for the subdivision was approved in 1993. The developer

has mounded the corridor and planted some trees. There will

eventually be four lots adj acent and will naljl line up.

1Po/2-p--4£a.-_ Ms. Robertson would like to see a landscaping plan and felt

this could be approved pending Tree and Landscape Committee

approval. Her interpretation of the zoning code is to look it over

for appearance including landscaping. Mr. Wilkenfeld also wants

answers to the landscaping issue. Mr. Salvage said there is a

landscaping provision on the plat, and he doesn' t think we should

ask for more information. He added that GPC only has review under

50' from ROW. Mr. Murphy stated that the plan they submitted was
