Sharon Sinsabaugh,329 West Elm Street - Roof

The applicant said the roof is in poor condition,and he would like to replace it with asphalt dimensional

shingles,which will look more authentic. It needs new gutters and they are thinking about copper material. The

StevenMershonC &andada Moore,405 East College Street

Mr. Burriss recused himself from consideration of this application}

Ms. Wimberger said this is for a new single-family dwelling. She would advise the group not to take final

action yet,there is a copy ofa letter from legal counsel to be considered. She thinks the question ofthe

easement has been answered, but questions remain. This is for discussion and tabling and possible modification

to the lot split.

Mr. Mershon said he received Attorney Erhard's letter this afternoon but he does not know quite whether he is

being an advocate or making ajudicial decision. Mr. Erhard accessed. This says an easement is the only way lots can be was a surprise to applicants,but they disagree with Mr. Erhard in saying there is no access on College Street. The School Board gave three deeds for three lots.

Mr. Salvage said GPC favored the easement. He had recommended studying the ad for the real estate auction

at which the property was sold. We did not require the school to sell as three lots. If there were only two lots, there would be no need for shared access. Mr. Myers said that consensus was for two lots but the School Board wanted three.

Mr. Wilkenfeld said a total of two lots with shared access was preferred because the lots were so small that driveways would cause traffic problems. This would make it easier to meet code requirements.

Mr. Mershon said that every house in the area is on a small lot and these three are consistent or even wider. He explained the location of the driveway was to make traffic smoother on Granger Street.and thinks he could plan

shared access for his other two lots. He does not know what they will do with the other two lots at this time,but

ifthere are to be two houses,there would be a shared driveway.

Mr. Myers summarized so far: 1( )The lot split with shared access was GPC's preference. 1( )In order to

change, a modification is needed to the lot split;there is no easement on the application. 3 ( )The general idea

was to eliminate curbcuts. 4( )We are going to have to follow legal counsel's advice. The next step is to go back

to Mr. Erhard and ask him to outline the steps to be taken

Mr. Salvage had talked to the school officials and they said there was supposed to be an easement. ( 1)These

two could share an access;2 ()they would want deed restrictions;3 ()there is a parking problem on Granger,and

parking should be allowed instead of striping; 4 ()they want to be sure the driveway makes sense. 5 ()Mr.

Salvage likes the house plans.

Ms. Lucier said the Village Council voted on the lot split with the understanding that there was an easement as

part of it. Mr. Myers said a subdivision without plat does not go to Village Council.

Mr. Mershon then described the plans for the two-story Queen Ann style house,and showed where changes to

the plans were made. Mr. Salvage said the School Board has no problem,but ifthe Village has other access

plans they want to know about it. Setbacks will not be a problem with the school

Members discussed the wide sidewalks still present and consensus agreed that the school should replace the

tree lawn and gutters, rather than the applicants.

MR. SALVAGE MOVED TO TABLE THE APPLICATION PENDING INFORMATION FROM LEGAL

COUNSEL. MR. WILKENFELD SECONDED,AND MOTION WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.
