MR. WILKENFELD MOVED TO APPROVE MINUTES AS CORRECTED AND MR. SALVAGE SECONDED. MOTION WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.

Citizens Comments: None

Old Business:

Bob Evans, Cherry Valley Road

Bob Evans has submitted a final plat for subdivision for approval so that it can be recorded at the County Recorder' s Office

after being signed by the Chair of GPC and approved by the Village.

There was a question of insufficient time for consideration of this plat, the mylar of whieh was received last Friday. Although

approval has already been granted and consideration tonight is

mostly administrative, members thought it should be tabled until the next meeting in order to adhere to ordinance requirements. It

is important that all changes required by the preliminary plat be included in the final plat.

MR. SALVAGE MOVED TO TABLE THIS UNTIL THE NEXT MEETING TO BE

SURE THAT ALL REQUIREMENTS FOR SUBMISSION PERIODS ARE MET, AND

WE THAT WE HAVE WRITTEN FINDING FROM STAFF AS TO COMPLETENESS

OF PLAT. MR. WILKENFELD SECONDED, AND IT WAS UNANIMOUSLY

APPROVED.

Denison University, Sunset Hill

Mr. Reyazi said that Denison has requested a waiver of public

use fee for their new residence halls. GPC discussed this at their

last meeting and agreed that a waiver would be appropriate. The

Ordinance suggests {1305. 03( f)} L a"nd Dedication in Lieu of Fee, 1'

and Mr. Wernet suggested asking them to dedicate the development

rights f6r Middleton House and the Bio Reserve to balance the fee.

Mr. Reyazi thought this might be complicated and he had told them

he would not hold up the certificate. He would be concerned about

No consensus was arrived at for a recommendation to Village dCeoduinccaitli,onbut Mr. Wernet would like Denison to consider the land in lieu of fee. This could be sent to VC without trheecomfemee. ndation in order that they consider all options regarding

MR. SALVAGE MOVED THAT WHILE RECOGNIZING THE VALIDITY OF THE DENISON REQUEST TO WAIVE THE PUBLIC USE FEE, GPC BELIEVES THAT VILLAGE COUNCIL SHOULD LOOK AT ALL ALTERNATIVES AND THEREFORE GPC MOVES TO FORWARD TO VILLAGE COUNCIL THE DENISON REQUEST WITHOUT SPECIFIC RECOMMENDATION. MR. WILKENFELD SECONDED, AND IT WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.

New Business:

Borough Company, John Thornborough, Shepardson Court

The original application for subdivision without plat (lot split) was approved March 20, 1995, but was not recorded within 60 days of approval, thus the approval was voided. They are now asking for approval of the same lot split that was previously approved. The plan would resubdivide six small lots into three

larger lots, providing more greenspace. The proposal meets all

requirements, and water and sewer is available.

MR. SALVAGE MOVED TO APPROVE APPLICATION AS PRESENTED; MR.

WILKENFELD SECONDED, AND IT WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.

Work Session:

Thornewood Subdivision, Lots 27, 28, 29, West Broadway

Mr. Hersam and Mr. Kobunski explained their new proposed cluster housing for the three lots. Mr. Hersam explained that

although this fronts in the TCOD, the hill in the back precludes

construction any farther to the rear and they feel that 50' setback

is the best they can do. They have seriously considered cluster

housing for 4 condos and find that it would work by merging the ef /St- lots. They propose a single curbcut, a=s-i-rb*e/d\riveway wd:6· 49- e ' another drive in back of the units facing into the hill. They

would build a retaining wall and retain much of the woods. This 31-1 would require a rezoning to Suburban C or PUD. It would retain

greenspace in lieu of a short setback in the TCOD.

This will be on the agenda again at

Consensus agreed it appears to be a good plan.

Access Management Plan

Mr. Reyazi and Mr. Zarbaugh again talked about the proposed

Access Management Plan, saying the classification system is consistent

with the Licking County plan for roads.

C

whereMr. Salvage was concerned with imposing new rules in areas they are not applicable or not needed. He suggested making the classification system as an overlay district where need exists. As areas annex, those areas can fall under the overlay district. Other areas can be reclassified as rdquired.

Mr. Wilkenfeld asked about sidewalks, and Mr. Zarbaugh said tshyasttemp.edestrian walkways are included in mobile transportation sidewalk. There are funds available to help a homeowner to put in a Some streets are too narrow for sidewalks.

Members were concerned about premature road widening, and Mr. Zarbaugh assured members that no changes were planned for now. There must be a major change in trip generation for the road to be widened. Under an Access Management plan, all roads are classified whether or not they will be actually built at some future date.

Mr. Reyazi said there are two main aspects of Access Manage- 1) Limit curbcuts and (2) Protect ROW for possible road
