New Business:

Sprint PCS at Presbyterian Church,110 West Broaciwity - Antenna

Ms. Wimberger stated that Sprint wishes to extend a rod from the church steeple for their

microcell antenna. The only portion to be seen from the outside is a small rod.

Peter Cea showed the digital photographs and said the microcell will handle just the

downtown area. The system will be totally internal except for the 6' high antenna. The color will

be white to match the steeple, and it will not be lit. The Village Law Director is reviewing the

village's portion of the agreement th( e village owns the land,the church owns the building).The

church has already approved the use oftheir building. Additionally,the BZBA approved the

height variance on November 18, 1999.

Sprint PCS originally wanted to have the complete system internal,but the foliage,now

and in the future,necessitated more height.

Troy Butler,neighbor said his concerns are the fence, the evergreen screening,and the dumpster.

Mr. Rizor said the dumpster has not been addressed, and Mr. Myers asked for an 8' screening

Mr. Myers asked for clarification of position ofR.O.W.

Mr. Zarbaugh's memo commented that (1)at such time as Cherry Valley is improved,

improvements considered today may have to be changed. 2( )15' sidewalks and 6' tree lawns

would be required when Cherry Valley is improved. Mr. Fackler would have to be willing to

Mr. Salvage thought Mr. Fackler was apparently considering a fence outside the ROW

No signage is considered at this time.

Mr. Wilkenfeld seeks assurance that parking will be screened from the road,and Mr.

Rizor said there will be crab apples,blue spruces,and 4' yews. He stated that adding more buffer

trees in front of the sale trees with detract from the ability of sale trees to grow straight.

Mr. Rizor said there has to be a wide curbcut for semi trucks to enter and make deliveries.

Egress on Cherry Valley is not wide enough for semis.

and Ms. Wimberger described alterations in current personnel position descriptions to

accommodate the required duties. The Newark Code Department will expand their inspections

in the village for structural, electrical, etc. on additions and accessory structures. Local
