New Business:
Everen Securities,527 NewarkG-ranville Road S-ign
Ms. Wimberger stated that this application will be considered a modification from an
incomplete one submitted in September. Because of a name change to First Union,Mr. Miller is
requesting a new sign incorporating the new name as well as that ofMoundbuilders Real Estate,a
new tenant. The sign will replace the existing ground sign. They request a second identical sign
to be hung on the deck at the rear of the building,between the floor and the railing. The one in
the rear will not be visible to the street.
Mr. Myers felt that the sign was too high and would rather see it lowered by 2'- 4'.
Procedurally,Mr. Myers stated,we have (1)one modified application. The original
application did have two signs on it,but was incomplete. 2 ( )Mr.Miller is not the owner of the
building;Bob Kent is,but he gave Mr.Miller approval to proceed with the sign applications.3 ()
Is this a major modification. 4 ( )There is no application for the wall sign in the rear.
Mr. Burriss questioned the style ofthe sign,saying the two businesses should be similar in
graphics. Mr. Miller will consult with his sign maker to coordinate the signs. Mr. Burriss prefers
both backgrounds to be green,and Mr. Wernet suggested elongating the word " Securities"for
consistency.
Mr. Salvage is willing to approve application as long as the Village Planner approves the
redesigned sign.
MR. SALVAGE MOVED THAT BOTH THIS APPLICATION,99113,AND THE ONE
SUBMITTED IN SEPTEMBER BE MERGED INTO A SINGLE APPLICATION
WITH CORRECTION NOTING ROBERT KENT AS OWNER AND THE NUMBER

Jill Roberts and other tenants,110 East Elm -Signs
Ms.Wimberger explained that a sign package for the commercial buildings was approved
a few years ago which allowed three signs on one pole and two on the other. Plaques were to go
near the doors.There are three applications before us. Ms.Roberts added that these are new
designs and the additional sign is on her door. The sign that would go on the door is not going to
actually increase the overall signage for the building because some ofthe other signs are not being
used.
1)The first sign application,99123,is for a two-sided ground sign in the existing frame on the
east,including the Sentinel sign on the side wall. The Sentinel sign will be moved next to their
door. Mr.Myers preferred the background colors to be the same,but Ms.Roberts likes them as
the application shows,with muted colors. She will not try to match the old,worn out Curtis sign.
MR. SALVAGE MOVED TO APPROVE APPLICATION 99123 AS PRESENTED.
MR.BURRISS SECONDED,AND IT WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.
2)Application 99127 is for a white-lettered door sign for Jill Roberts. She said it would be the
same logo but smaller letters, with address,phone number,and email added.
MR. SALVAGE MOVED TO APPROVE 99127 AS SUBMITTED. MR. BURRISS
SECONDED,AND MOTION WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.
3)Application 99128 is for a ground sign for Superior Land Title and wall signs
plaques)to be installed next to the second floor two doors for Superior Land Title S(. Main St.
buildinga)nd Ruth Garrett e(ast building).
Mr. Wernet does not get a sense ofconsistency among all the signs. While Ruth Garrett's
wall sign is appropriate,Superior Land Title has two quite different styles.
MR. SALVAGE MOVED TO APPROVE 99128 WITH CONDITION THAT
APPROVAL ONLY RELATES TO RUTH GARRETT'S WALL PLAQUE SIGN. MR.
BURRISS SECONDED,AND IT WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.

Granville Goodyear,Larry Harer,200 East Broadway
GPC Minutes, October 18, 1999
The applicant wishes an identical permanent sandwich board to replace the temporary one
previously granted for 60 days. The present sign is blue and white,whereas the approval was for
black lettering. GPC members walked over to look at the sign and determined it was acceptable.
MR. SALVAGE MOVED TO APPROVE APPLICATION AS SUBMITTED;MR.
BURRISS SECONDED,AND MOTION WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.
Old Business:
Granville Goodyear,Larry Harer,200 East Broadway
The applicant requests approval of different colors for the temporary banner sign,
Approval No. 99096. The sign exhibits not the red and white colors approved by the GPC but
yellow background with blue letters. The group must determine whether this is a minor change
for different colors.
MR. SALVAGE MOVED TO CONSIDER 99096-M AS A MINOR MODIFICATION.
MR. BURRISS SECONDED AND MOTION WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.
MR. SALVAGE MOVED TO APPROVE THE BANNER WITH THE CONDITION
THAT IT BE KEPT UP NO LONGER THAN PREVIOUSLY APPROVED ( 60 DAYS).

Mr. Myers added that the color situation is not a very good practice by the applicant and he hopes
it will not recur.

NEW BUSINESS E(veren,Roberts,and Goodyeara),nd A UNDER OLD BUSINESS AS
FORMAL DECISION OF THE COMMISSION. MR. BURRISS SECONDED,AND
THE MOTION WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.
Closing Comments:Mr. Wernet stated that with regard to PUD final plans, the Ohio Supreme
Court has ruled that the final plans are subject to referendum;this means that we may have to
treat them as legislative rather than administrative. Mr. Hurst,Village Law Director,is looking
into this.
