Citizens Comments: Ken and Katherine Richards were present to em- phasize the concerns in his letter of February 22 regarding the Kobunski/ Hersom project on West Broadway. The reasons for opposing
the rezoning and development are: 1) They selected their lot because
of the residential uncongested neighborhood. (2) Developmemnt will bring more noise and traffic. (3) When the Richardses proposed lot subdivision, GPC stressed adhering to the TCOD requirement and denied them a variance. Mr. Richards wanted GPC to give serious
thought as to why a developer should not be held to the same standards as a homeowner. 4) It' s important not to set precedents in cases like this. 5) If there is grant money or other money in
the village, purchase the lots and keep them the way they are.
Ned Roberts, 348 East Maple
The applicant wishes to replace the two-story shed on the rear
of the house with a slightly narrower but 6' deeper addition. The
addition will be closer than 10' from property line on the east.
Mr. Roberts explained the ROW situation on an abandoned Granger St.
extension. The neighbors do not object to this change.
MR. WILKENFELD MOVED TO APPROVE APPLICATION AS SUBMITTED. MR.
MYERS SECONDED, AND MOTION WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.
County Savings Bank, 143 East Broadway
The applicants wish to change the name of the bank on pro- jecting sign and on the wall sign. Mike Davis explained that the
entire area of the projecting sign will be internally lit. After
discussion, Roger Kessler stated that they could subdue the blue in
the drawing. The actual size of the signs was in questionw-h-ether

SECONDED, AND MOTION WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.
Fackler' s, 1960 Newark-Granville Road
The Finding of Fact from the last meeting needs to be ap- proved, and members made a few changes but preferred to have full membership present before final approval. Mr. Reyazi said it can be forwarded to Village Council as proposed Finding of Fact and that will get it on their agenda. They need to approve off-site improvements.
Mr. Reyazi introduced a problem with the engineering drawings: the 5' of extra ROW will be insufficient for tree lawn and side- walks. Another 12' is needed, but the plans have already been approved. Our sidewalk needs to be in the ROW. If another 7' is
granted, Fackler would have to move the ground sign back. If the
entire project is moved 7',that would eliminate several parking
spaces. Additional ROW would bring the edge of the ROW to the edge of the landscaping. Maybe the mounding will have to go. Mr. Reyazi suggested leaving the sidewalk where it is and letting Village r • ·
