Mr. Burriss excused himselffrom this application. }
This application had been tabled at the last meeting. The contractor for the construction is
asking for approval for his revised temporary wooden sign showing four subcontractors' names. The
sign is to be 4'xzl',2' offthe ground,and placed on east side ofthe church,15' from sidewalk.
Mr. Crowley, from Robertson Construction, explained the location and colors of the sign
which will be white background, with black, blue or dark green letters. They will locate the sign carefully,in accordance with the ordinance.
MR. WILKENFELD MOVED TO APPROVE APPLICATION AS SUBMITTED WITH
TWO COLORS TO BE BLUE ON THE TOP WITH GREEN LETTERING BENEATH.

Granville Lumber Company,401 SouthMain
Application was tabled at last meeting. Duane Goodwin, Contractor, explained that the
applicant would rather not go along with the recommendations from the last meeting to retain the exact
sign in order to retain the attractive grandfathered rather than adhere to the code. The new
nonconforming sign,in the TCOD,perpendicular to the road,would be 3 V2' offthe ground.total 9.75
sq.ft,and letters 8'6"high,rather than the existing 12'high one. The new redwood would have a sandblasted with gray background on wood posts.
Mr. Burriss suggested the old, historic,sign be donated to the Granville Historical Society. Mr. Goodwin said he would discuss this suggestion with the Granville Lumber Company owner. Members discussed safety of the sign and determined it would be acceptable. GPC has discretion on what they can approve in that TCOD area,and agreed they ailliked the old sign better.
MR. MYERS MOVED TO APPROVE APPLICATION;MR. BURRISS SECONDED, AND IT WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.
New Day Spa,1287 Cherry Valley Road
Mr. Stansbury recused himself from this application and turned the meeting over to the Vice Chair, Mr. Myers. }
Ms. Wimberger explained that applicants would like to operate a message business,making minimal changes to the building,and are requesting a sign. They also own the home at 1285 Cherry Valley and this will continue to be used as a home.
The applicants provided two proposals, one with parking to the rear and the second with parking on the east side. Ms. Hepsworth said there are problems with placement behind the building. Ms. Carter explained that with parking in the front there would be more separation from the residence and it would not interfere with septic systems. Also, the back yard is lower and would require drainage. Customers would be safer if entering the building from the front door,and car lights would be less intrusive.
Mr. Wilkenfeld does not like the idea of parking along Cherry Valley Road. Others agreed, especially with a residence next door. Mr. Wernet reminded the group that according to the ordinance,
parking must be in the rear. After discussion consensus wanted parking in the rear.
Mr. Myers suggested that for better appearance, retaining the garage door as is, although
inoperable,would be an option. Mr.Burriss suggested adding a window to match existing window.
Mr. Wilkenfeld suggested placing the one handicapped space in the front, close to the front
door,with the remaining five spaces in the rear.
The sign would be directly in front of the building, 50' from street pavement and 20 feet from
existing driveway. The sign will be no greater than 9.6 square feet in area.
Mr. Myers summarized the discussion:
1. Parking to be in the rear,with entrance offthe parking lot.
2 Place one handicapped space in front.
3. Waste cans to be stored in garage.
4 The fire door in the front is to remain a facade as though it were a real front door.
5. Blacktop on parking lot will double as sidewalk.
6 Sidewalk to remain from existing front door to existing driveway. Ms. Hepsworth said it might

7. Rdeelmivoevrye 5' of concrete right in front ofgarage. Ms. Hepsworth said they would like to allow trucks there.
8. Add new window in garage door.

New Day Spa, 1287 Cherry Valley Road
The sign was considered separately from above application. Ms. Hepsworth said it would be
green,yellow,burgundy on blue background. She displayed the actual,unmeasured sign to be erected,
l' offthe ground on 4x4s,and solar lit,50'back from the ROW. Ms. Wimberger determined it to be 2
14/'x 4 14/ ',which falls within code9 .(5-6 sq.f.t.).It would be a ones-ided sign facing the street.
Members wanted to see exact colors, and Ms. Wimberger will acquire a color chart from Sherwin-

check this for accuracy before application goes to Village Council.
Mr. Stansbury rejoined the membership and expressed dismay at the on this application and the redrawing required by the amount oftime consumed and this should Board. As presented,the work was incomplete checklist have been a work session. Consensus agreed that filture applicants should be given a and sample applications to study.
Work Session: AccessMonagement
Mark Zarbaugh explained the goals of access management as being congestion prevention and access control, and maintaining acceptable and safe traffic operating conditions along arterial and collector streets. His plans are modeled after the LCPC regulations,although they differ somewhat from those ofthe Comprehensive Plan Committee drawings. Consistency is important.
Only new subdivisions are applicable in these plans. A developer is required to pin and mark the plat indicating the required future right ofway setback. Then later,ifnecessary,it can be purchased for infrastructure improvements.
The Board discussed the different categories ofroads. Mr. Zarbaugh said they have gotten out RFPs to learn what developers south ofNewarkG- ranville Road and South ofRt. 16 will contribute to road changes.
Mr.Myers wondered whether the Master Plan Committee must change their plans to adhere to LCPC categories. He also stressed the importance of protecting rural roads. A road with a higher classification commands more control.
Mr. Zarbaugh said some roads are both residential and commerciali .(e.,NewarkG- ranville),
and could command two categories. He and Ms. Wimberger will revisit this plan and perhaps create a new classification to take care ofGranville- specific rural roads.
