New Business:

Granville Title Agency. 1308 East Broadway - C hane of Use

Mr. Dorman said the applicant was in before the meeting started,and stated that she had a drawing

for proposed signage and would like it approved tonight in combination with the change of use. I told her

that there is a process to be followed, that she would have to file a sign application,and then get on the

Planning Commission agenda. She said she would prefer to not come to 2 meetings and asked i f the

application could be tabled.

MR. SALVAGE MOVED TO TABLE THE APPLICATION. MR. WILKENFELD SECONDED, AND

THE MOTION WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.

Welsh Hills School,2610 Newark-Gra,iville Road-Sidewalk Si211

Mr. Parris recused himself in order to present the application. }

Mr. Dorman said the request is for a 3'x4' permanent wooden sidewalk sign used to noti fy parents

of school events and other useful information. It will be hidden behind the shed located on the drive

around, and will not be visible from Newark-Granville Road.

Mr. Parris added that the sign is for various messages. It is larger than a standard sandwich board

because it needs to be seen from the road rather than the walk. It's an easy way to notify parents of events

when picking up their children. The sign will always be behind the shed,on the inner circle of the

driveway. Mr. Wilkenfeld asked about the list of signs provided and mentioned that only the ground sign

in front is visible from Newark-Granville Road and Mr. Parris agreed.

Granville Planning Commission, 12-10-01

MR. SALVAGE MOVED TO APPROVE APPLICATION # 01-171 AS PRESENTED. MR.

WILKENFELD SECONDED,AND THE MOTION WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.

Work Sessions:

Jerome Scott,420 East BroadwavR -ear Addition

The applicant reminded the group that at the last work session, massing was a concern,and he has

addressed this. Also the back ofthe building was too modern,but the more research he did on bungalows,

the more confused he became because there is no consensus in style. He showed new drawings with

windows. All materials are similar to those of the house.

Mr. Myers asked about the vocabulary of the windows, and Mr. Scott said he is balancing

horizontals and verticals. Mr. Myers thought the application looks like a mixed metaphor,architecturally

speaking. He would encourage using horizontal windows.

Mr. Parris stated that he understands that one of the reasons the applicant is using the big windows

is to let in light to the studio. Maybe there might be another way to do that and stay within tradition,more

like a picture or studio-type window and transom. He was concerned about too many awning windows.

Mr. Scott agreed with the idea oftransoms. Mr. Salvage said the applicant has addressed the massing,

and the windows can be made to work better.

Park Shai,57 Westgate DriveB -uilding Renovations

Mr. Shai was present to discuss renovations of theG&L Mower building for a potential new

owner, Suburban Steel,who will come in and fix it up. Tonight his intent is to get the Planning

Commission's opinion ofthe proposed purchase ofthe building from the Lavender Company, and to get

their feeling on the property. They will need a lot split and buy only Lot 14. The company makes

ornamental fences,railings, etc.,requiring steel cutting, pressing, stamping, and minor welding.

Mr. Wilkenfeld asked about the distance to the nearest residence,which was about 250'.

Neighbor Mr. Lavender had no objection to the plans. Mr. Wilkenfeld also asked how noisy the business

will be, and Mr. Shai said the entire operation will be inside and his understanding is that the building is

very quiet.

Jeff Vagnier, of Suburban Steel, described the plans for the building. They purchased the business

in 1955 and it has grown without advertising,and they need more space. There will be about 7

employees. Regarding the noise, in Pataskala they were surrounded by residences and he is sensitive to

noise from their light manufacturing. They do their own forging. They would not change the footprint.

There will be no showroom, but clients would make appointments and come in.

Mr. Salvage feels that the project fits under Permitted Use, and Mr. Dorman will check with the

Law Director to be sure.

Mr. Parris said the noise would probably be no worse than the highway noise.

Mr. Salvage does not see a need for variances, and the zoning should be OK. The applicants do

not need to return here except for signage. Mr. Dorman stated they would also need a change of use.

Granville Schools,248 New Bir,g StreetH -igh School Addition,Phase II

Julie Leeman and Vic Trevinko presented drawings for site plans with elevations. They are filling

in the space between the two buildings and using it for a theater,a commons area,and a kitchen. Vic

Granville Planning Commission 12-10-01

Trevinko said the site will be broken up in five pieces with different elevations. They will add windows and extend the existing courtyard.

Mr. Myers said that since this is a big institutional building, landscaping should be kept simple,

and between the buildings they can add dogwoods,in a simple landscape gesture. Mr. Myers feels like

the school should concentrate on planting trees rather than planting beds.

Old Business:

Jim & Jeanetta Pyle.122 South Prospect Street - Demolition

The application was tabled at the last meeting,pending additional information on the future use of

the land.

Mr. Pyle stated that they want to expedite the process because the Historical Society plans to move

the Sinnett House through 122 South Prospect Street. There is a 60-day waiting period during which the

Ohio Historical Society reviews the historical aspects ifthey are deemed significant.

Eloise DeZwarte was concerned about the demolition because Granville is constantly working on

beautification of our village and she is not happy about a vacant lot. Also, Ganville Fellowship is

desperate for a house;could this be a spot for them?The Library will be partly funded by a levy and will

ask for support. When things like this are done,an overall plan should first be shown to let us know

exactly what will happen. She thinks we need more information.

Ashlin Caravana echoed Ms. DeZwarte's concerns for demolition without knowing exactly what

is going to be done there,and she would not like to see a vacant lot.

Kathy Kern,President ofLibrary Board,said the Library needs access to the space currently

housing the Sinnett House. They want to start demolition now because it is a vacant house and on the tax

register. They have hired an architect and will start a 17-week design plan in January 2002. They want to

expedite in order to help the Historical Society save the Sinnett House.

Mr. Myers is still curious about the timing. He would not have a problem with the Pyle house

going down and another building going in,but does not desire a vacant lot. Also,the levy is a year away.

Walt Denny, from the Library Board,feels it should be done now since the Pyles have tried for a

year to get this done, but there are problems with moving the house,i.e.,trees and the height. The Library

has given the Historical Society until the end of February to get their funding,and the demolition needs to

be done before that time.

Ashlin Caravana said when the Historical Society came before BZBA,it did not appear to be on a

fast track,and lots ofthings have to be done first. She thought the Pyle house could be rented until it is

demolished.

Mr. Parris questions the timeline because the Planning Commission is working with the Historical

Society as well. We are supportive and hope they can move the Sinnett House,but that will not happen

right away. They need funding and approvals. What will eventually be on the lot?Additional parking?

Granville Planning Commission,11/ 26/ 01

Mr.Denny said there are not enough parking spaces,and one thought was to build an underground

parking garage.

Mr.Wilkenfeld said we need more books and fewer cars. He asked whether the Pyle house has

historical value,and Mr. Salvage said ourjob is to make a recommendation to the Village Manager,and

he needs to know whether the house has historical or architectural value. Mr. Salvage sees nothing that

would let us recommend against demolition.

Mr.Myers said the architectural value is the context ofthe house on the street. The house is not of

significant historical importance,but it is very important in maintaining the architectural character ofthe

streetscape. The purpose is to maintain a distinct phase ofthe village's history. He is concerned about

what will happen in the future. Once you make a decision to demolish a building,you can never get it

back,and he is not in favor of demolition.

Ms. Lucier said she brought up this subject at Village Council and we seem to be proceeding with

this in a backward fashion. She does not have a problem with this building coming down,but this is not

the correct time.

Mr. Myers said the Design Group will provide real drawings for the site,and that would raise our

comfort level.

Mr. Wilkenfeld feels this is premature and is uncomfortable about the demolition.

Mr. Parris does not see why it needs to come down now. Once everything is ready,the Planning

Commission can move fairly quickly. The Historical Society needs funding first. He had asked for some

idea ofwhat was going onto the lot and the applicants have provided this. It appears it might be a vacant

lot for at least a year.

Walt Denny described what the vacant lot would look like with grass and trees.

Mr.Myers thought the stakes were high as far as the Library levy is concerned. Ifthe levy passes,

OK,but if it does not,we are left with a hole. There are a lot offuzzy issues now,and there is too much

risk to make an irrevocable decision. We need to see architectural drawings first. He would just as soon

not act on this application now,but Mr.Pyle wanted GPC's answer tonight. They have a contract to

move the house or demolish it by a certain date.

MR. WILKENFELD MOVED TO TAKE THE APPLICATION OFF THE TABLE RETROACTIVELY

TO THE BEGINNING OF THE DISCUSSION. MR. SALVAGE SECONDED,AND THE MOTION

WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.

MR. SALVAGE MOVED THAT THE PLANNING'COMMISSION RECOMMEND THE

DEMOLITION APPLICATION BE APPROVED BY THE VILLAGE MANAGER. MR..PARRISS

SECONDED,AND THE VOTE WAS: MR. PARRIS-YES;MR. SALVAGE-YES;MR.

WILKENFELD-ABSTAINED;MR. MYERS-NO.

Lacking a three-vote majority,there is no recommendation of approval to pass onto the Village Manager.

AndrewT &ricia Rawnsley,430 West BroadwayF -ence Modification

Mr. Dorman said the applicant cannot be here tonight because of a death in the family,and he

could present the modification. The fence was built with more fencing than what was approved. It was

supposed to start behind the window,but goes to the edge of the front facade of the house. It does not

infringe on any setbacks other than the TCOD.

MR. SALVAGE MOVED TO FIND THE MODIFICATION A MINOR ONE. MR. PARRIS

MR. SALVAGE MOVED TO APPROVE THE MODIFICATION TO APPLICATION # PRESENTED. 01-138 AS MR. PARRIS SECONDED,AND THE MOTION WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.

Ashlin Caravana.209 East Elm StreetF e-nceModification

The temporary green wire fence was originally approved to contain the child and would have been replaced by landscaping eventually. But now they have a dog that needs to learn boundaries,so the

applicant is seeking permanent approval ofthe fence. They do not want to install a picket fence or an invisible fence. The neighbors have no problem with the fence.

MR. SALVAGE MOVED TO FIND THE MODIFICATION A MINOR ONE. MR. WILKENFELD

SECONDED,AND THE MOTION WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.

MR. SALVAGE MOYED TO APPROVE THE MODIFICATION TO APPLICATION0 #00-22. MR.

WILKENFELD SECONDED,AND THE MOTION WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.

New Business:

New Day Spa, 1287 Cherry Valley Road- Parking Lot Expansion

Because of an increase in their business,the applicants wish to expand parking lot from 6 to 16

spaces. This will require a variance from BZBA for maximum spaces and being inside the minimum side

yard setback. Carolyn Carter said they were supposed to have a 4 2'/' fence to deter headlights,but the

two huge pine trees have big roots and they can't install a fence,so they wanted a 6' painted wood

privacy fence. They have new neighbors with an unsavory appearance to their property. There is a chain

link fence on their property.

Mr. Salvage is glad to see the business is a success, and the parking has no negative visual aspects,

but he wishes they could take out the chain link,a suggestion echoed by Mr. Myers. He is willing to pass

a resolution of recommendation to BZBA.

MR. SALVAGE MOVED THAT THE GRANVILLE PLANNING COMMISSION APPROVE THE

APPLICATION AS PRESENTED;THAT THE PLANNING COMMISSION ALSO INDICATE THEIR

DESIRE FOR THE FENCE TO BE ON THE PROPERTY LINE AND TO REPLACE THE EX[STING

CHAIN LINK FENCE IF THE APPLICANT SO DESIRES AND CAN WORK IT OUT WITH THE

NEIGHBOR;AND THAT THE PLANNING COMMISSION RECOMMENDS TO THE BZBA TO

APPROVE THE VARIANCES NEEDED TO ACCOMPLISH THIS. MR. PARRIS SECONDED,AND

THE MOTION WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.

MoundB-uilders Real Estate, 130 East BroadwavC -hange ofUse

The applicant wishes to rent the former Taylor's Drug Store and a change of use is required to

change from a drug store to a real estate office.

MoundB-uilders Real Estate,130 East BroadwayC -anopy andWindow Signs

The real estate office is applying for a canopy sign and a window sign. The replacement awning

will be navy blue and turquoise stripes,and will say Mound- Builders Real Estate. The placement and

construction will match that ofthe Village Coffee Shop.

The color was discussed,and Mr. Salvage wanted to see color samples.

MR. SALVAGE MOVED TO APPROVE APPLICATION0 #1-164 WITH THE CONDITION THAT

COLOR SAMPLES BE PROVIDED TO THE VILLAGE PLANNER FOR FINAL APPROVAL. MR.

PARRIS SECONDED,AND THE MOTION WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.

Kenneth Dickerman,321 North Pearl StreetR -emodel Porches

The applicant has already begun work on rebuilding 1St and 2nd story porches in the rear. He

wanted to create a bigger back yard by removing the catwalk.

MR.WILKENFELD MOVED TO APPROVE APPLICATION0 #1-165 AS SUBMITTED. MR.

PARRIS SECONDED,AND THE MOTION WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.

Work Session:

Brvn DuWoodsIm -prove White Barn

Mr. Parris recused himself in order to present the plan ofthe homeowners association. It is a

small white barn which needs to be upgraded. They want to add steps and guard rails. They want to put

trim on opening and repair the battens. It will be painted white. Steps will go in the center 12' section.

The other two sections will have guardrails installed. Alternatively,they could bring in dirt and slope it

up to the opening.

Mr. Myers recommended raising the grade 18".They could raise it to 18"and not need the

railing. The simplification ofraising the grade is consistent with the simplicity ofthe barn's architecture.

Finding of Fact: MR. SALVAGE MOVED TO APPROVE THE FINDINGS OF FACT FOR A

THROUGH C UNDER OLD BUSINESS AND A THROUGH D UNDER NEW BUSINESS AND WE

FIND THEM CONSISTENT WITH RELEVANT SECTIONS OF THE CODE AS DESCRIBED IN

MR. WILKENFELD MOVED TO APPROVE THE MINUTES AS PRESENTED. MR. BURRISS

SECONDED, AND THE MOTION WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.

New Business:

Jon Raymond.132 East Broadway - Neon «Ope n"Sign and Additional Signage

Mr. Dorman stated that this application is for 3 signs. The first sign is a neon " open"sign. The

neon sign would be 2.9 square feet with red and white neon lights mounted on clear plastic. The next sign

is a smalllogo sign on the rear door which is 2.4 square feet,and the wall sign above the rear door is 8. 1

square feet. The wall sign was brought over to this location from the applicant's former location on North

Prospect Street.

Mr. Raymond explained that he bought the neon sign from an artist in Chicago. The sign is now

on the inside wall and he feels it represents the business. He said that even with his lights on,people

come into the shop and ask if they are open. As for the smaillogo sign,that was purchased when the

larger logo sign was made,and he decided to install it on the rear door in lieu ofthe small awning that

was previously approved by the Planning Commission. The applicant has found that a lot of people are

entering from the rear. As for the wall sign,it was brought over from the old location and he felt it

dressed up the rear facade. Getting back to the neon sign,the applicant noted that a coffee cup is part of

the business' logo, and he feels the coffee cup in the neon sign also represents the business enterprise.

Mr. Burriss asked the applicant about his hours of operation,and Mr. Raymond said that he is

open from 7 am to 6 pm Monday-Friday, and 8 am to 4 pm on Saturday. Mr. Burriss noted that he would

be comfortable with the neon sign only if it is illuminated during hours of operation.

MR. PARRISS MOVED TO APPROVE APPLICATION # 01-155,SUBJECT TO THE FOLLOWING

MODIFICATION: 1)THAT THE WHITE SIGN ABOVE THE DOOR TO THE REAR OF THE

BUILDING BE REMOVED TO BRING THE BUILDING INTO COMPLIANCE WITH THE CODE,A

TOTAL OF 4 SIGNS. WE FEEL THE NEON SIGN MEETS THE CODE WHICH STATES THAT

NEON SIGNS MAY BE PERMITTED IF THEY ARE CONSIDERED ARTFUL AND IDENTIFY THE

BUSINESS ENTERPRISE AND DO NOT EXCEED 4 SQUARE FEET. THIS SIGN MEETS THOSE

CRITERIA;AND 2)THAT THE SIGN WILL ONLY BE ILLUMINATED DURING BUSINESS

HOURS. MR..BURRISS SECONDED AND THE MOTION WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.

Granville Planning Commission,11-13-01

Jim andJeanetta Pyle.122 South Prospect StreetD -emolition

Mr.Dorman introduced the project by stating that the applicants are proposing to demolish their

house located at 122 South Prospect Street.

Mr. Salvage asked whether the Pyles had received a letter from Jurgen Pape in opposition,and the

answer was no. Mr.Pyle asked ifhis application could temporarily be skipped so that he and the others

involved in this application could have a chance to digest the letter,and the Planning Commission agreed

to this request.

After having a chance to read the letter from Mr.Pape,Mr.Pyle began his comments by stating he

and his wife liked the house when they had it,but they no longer own the land under it. The plan is for a

nice green space to be there until the library starts construction.

Kathy Kern,President ofthe library board,said that the library bought the property because it

allows us access to build the library addition.

Mr. Salvage said that the Chair ofPlanning Commission,Mr.Myers,is not here tonight,but did

call a couple ofus and had some questions that he thought should be answered. For example,what is the

library's expansion plan,and what is the overall timeframe?Ms. Kern said that an architect from

Columbus has been hired and they are concerned with helping the library gain public input. There is a 17

week plan,starting early next year,to gain that public input. The plan is to put a levy on the ballot next

November.

Mr. Salvage stated that the Planning Commission has also worked with the Granville Historical

Society on moving the Sinnett House. He then asked what the timeframe for needing the lots vacated

was. Ms. Kern said again that the levy would be on the ballot in November 2002,and Mr. Salvage said

that at the earliest construction would not even start until 2003.

Mr. Parris questioned the timing ofthe demolition,and Ms. Kern said the library is nervous about

having an empty house and they don't want to pay taxes on it. Mr. Parris said he did not want to leave a

big hole in the urban fabric. Mr. Denny said the space would be converted to green space. Mr. Parris said

that normally when we issue a demolition permit,we have something to fill the space created. Mr. Denny

said that Step 1 is demolishing the Pyle house,and Step 2 is moving the Sinnett House. He said there can

be no Step 2 without Step 1, and the Historical Society needs to know when they can move the Sinnett

House as soon as possible. Mr. Denny said we hoped the Pyle house could be moved and remain a

residence,and Mr. Salvage asked ifthat had been researched. Mr. Pyle said that it had been researched,

and that the tree in front ofthe house would have to be removed in order to move the house,and the

Village's tree appraisers gave that tree a value between $ 9,000 and $ 39,000. In addition,there would be

Village assessments for tree limbing.

Mr. Wilkenfeld said he is not concerned about the demolition,but he agrees with Mr. Myers that

this is premature. With the house gone,you have a "missing tooth"in the streetscape. It is very unusual

to take a house down without something to fill the space. He also asked when the drawings would be

ready. Ms. Kern said April,2001. Mr. Wilkenfeld questioned when the Sinnett House would be moved,

and Ms. Kern said that the Historical Society had indicated that ifthings go well they would like to move

the house will the ground is still frozen.

Mr. Burriss said that long prior to his conversation with Mr. Myers,he was not comfortable

issuing a demolition permit until we know what will fill its space and when will it fill its space.

Mr. Salvage reminded the group that the Planning Commission does not approve the demolition

permit they simply make a recommendation to the Village Manager.

Mr. Denny said that we know the approximate square footage to be addedf r(om 15,000 to

21,000)w;e know that the addition will come into the Pyles'property but we don't know how much.

Another architect said in order to build the square footage needed in our present confines a 4-story

g

Granville Planning Commission,11-13-01

building would have to be built and construction access would be limited to the alley on the the library. Mr. Parris said east side of pull of the trigger,which we hope you fill the space with the library,but you must come closer to the 14 may or may not be the Sinnett House;we would hate to see an empty lot for 2 years.

Mr. Denny said we prefer green space over an empty house. Mr. Parris said that he does not want

to deny the application,would the applicant be willing to table the application until a timeline and a plan

for the greenspace and landscaping could be presented. In addition,Mr. Parris is looking for a roadmap

as to what the library hopes to eventually fill the space with. Mr. Denny said that he will discuss this at

the upcoming board meeting,and will come back with a diagram of the two lots together and what the

library expects to do with the property.

MR. PARRIS MOVED TO TABLE APPLICATION # 01-158 PER THE APPLICANT'S REQUEST.

MR. WILKENFELD SECONDED AND THE MOTION WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.

David Schnaidt, 139 West Elm StreetS -econd Storv Deck

Mr. Dorman said that the applicant is proposing to build a second story walkout deck on the east

side ofthe house. Mr. Dorman showed a rough sketch ofthe deck and where the access door would be

located.

Mr. Schnaidt explained more ofthe intricate details ofthe deck. The spindles would be turned

spindles on the deck railing;the columns would be 4x4 with a decorative sleeve that slips over the post.

As part ofthe project is a renovation of the patio and walkway underneath the proposed deck,and for that

the applicant will be pouring a concrete pad with footers and then within a year bricking the new concrete

pad and walkway.

Mr. Burriss asked about the materials proposed for the flooring ofthe structure,and Mr. Schnaidt

said it would be top quality treated lumber. Mr. Burriss stated that the decking would be separated, and

Mr. Schnaidt said it would but that he was going to put a fascia- type covering over the deck board ends

for the architecture effect. The deck would then be painted off-white to match the trim ofthe house. Mr.

Schnaidt corrected Mr. Dorman and said that the access door would be 6"from the south window,not the

north window. The door will be a 15-light door.

Mr. Burriss said he remembered discussion during the applicant's addition hearing several years

ago,that the deck would continue around the sunroom,and Mr. Schnaidt said there would be no good

access from the addition,so he no longer plans to do this.

Mr. Burriss suggested putting a panel above the access door to create height consistency with the

surrounding windows.

Mr. Burriss asked who the contractor was and Mr. Schnaidt replied Law Excavating would do all

the work.

Mr. Salvage suggested that the applicant bring back better drawings that show all the details, and

the applicant said he did not want to slow the process down. Mr. Wilkenfeld asked about the applicant's

timeframe for starting and Mr. Schnaidt replied he wants to break ground after Thanksgiving.

Mr. Wilkenfeld thought another condition of approval should be that he bricks the pad and

walkway within 2 years.

Mr. Parris asked about the materials for the handrails and was told wood. Mr. Parris asked if it

would be an actual railing or 2 x 2, and was told an actual railing.

MR.WILKENFELD MOVED TO APPROVE APPLICATION0 #1-159 SUBJECT TO THE

AND FINAL APPROVAL TO BE GRANTED BY MR. BURRISS;AND ( 2)THAT THE

PARRIS SECONDED AND THE MOTION WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.

Old Business:

Frits Rizor,326North PearlStreetF -ence Modification

Mr. Dorman explained that this is a modification application to a previously approved permit. The

application before us is an extension ofthe previously approved picket fence,basically to give the family

pet more room to walk around. Mr. Dorman showed what the actual fence that was built looks like,and

explained the extension would look exactly like this,with 4'posts,3 12/'pickets;and 2 92s"pacing

between the pickets,edge to edge.

Mr.Rizor was asked ifthe neighbor was ok with the extension,and he explained that the house to

the north is a rental,he has not had a chance to ask the landlord about the extension,but indicated that

they were very pleased with what has already been installed.

MR. WILKENFELD MOVED THAT THIS IS A MINOR MODIFICATION. MR. PARRIS

SECONDED,AND THE MOTION WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.

MR.WILKENFELD MOVED TO APPROVE THE MODIFICATION TO APPLICATION # 01-096.

MR. BURRISS SECONDED,AND THE MOTION WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.

Work Session:

David Bussan,420 East BroadwayT o- discussmajor rear addition

Jerome Scott,Architect,said one problem is the footing ofthe old house is not deep enough. The

bedrooms are very small which is typical ofa bungalow,so the applicant would be proposing a master

bedroom to the rear. There would be a variance on the side of2.6'from the lot line,but the new addition

would never be any closer than the existing condition. Mr. Burriss asked ifthis is an addition onto the

addition,and Mr. Scott said yes and showed the Planning Commission the various elevations. They

prefer to match materials. Mr. Burriss recommended looking at the house on North Grangerjust south of

grade school and the bungatow- type house on Newark-Granville Road. Mr. Burriss encouraged

maintaining the integrity ofthe house. It needs to blend in with the neighborhood. He recommended

looking at Bernard Maybeck's work on fenestration ofbungalows in California. It was decided that the

applicant and his architect would be back for additional work sessions.

Mr. Dorman said the application is for a 24'x24'two-car garage below grade with family room at

grade. The Board ofZoning and Building Appeals will need to approve a side yard setback variance.

Brent Smith added that they are trying to improve the appearance by renovating the dilapidated

garage,a hazard for kids. Unlike most oftheir neighbors,they have no garage. There would be no

plumbing or air conditioning in the garage,but they will have baseboard heat. The builder explained it

would be 2-3"away from the existing shed. Mr. Smith said it will be redwood siding,with a mixture of

horizontal siding and board-and-batten vertical siding to match the house,and painted red to match the

shed.

MR. SALVAGE MOVED TO APPROVE APPLICATION # 01-147, SUBJECT TO THE

FOLLOWING: 1)THAT THE NEW BUILDING WILL BE SIDED WITH WOOD BOARD SIDING

SIMILAR TO WHAT'S ON THE HOUSE; 2)THAT THE COLOR MATCH THE EXISTING SHED;

AND 3)THAT APPROVAL FOR THE SIDE YARD SETBACK VARIANCE BE SECURED

THROUGH THE BOARD OF ZONING AND BUILDING APPEALS. MR. PARRIS SECONDED,

AND THE MOTION WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.

Lee L&inda Davis.304 North Pearl StreetF -ence and Patios

Mr. Dorman showed pictures and explained that the application is for wood fencing, on the north

side behind the house,with two gates. The applicant will add landscaping around the house and two brick

patios, one on the north side and one on the south side.

Mike Flood, landscape designer,said the fence will be similar to one on Elm Street. The rear of

the north neighbor's house is forward ofthe fence. A similar application was approved about a year ago,

but the homeowner wanted to change the style so we resubmitted the application.

Granville Planning Commission -10-22-01

Mr.Myers asked about the two fences and was told one was the previously approved one and the

other,the new one. The picket fence is in lieu ofthe earlier approved cedar fence and will be lower.

MR.PARRIS MOVED TO APPROVE APPLICATION0 #1-149 FOR FENCE AND PATIOS AS PER

PLAN. MR. SALVAGE SECONDED,AND THE MOTION WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.

Work Sessions:

Clifton Crais.234 North PearlStreetR -enovations

Mr. Crais said the added-on lean-to was collapsing and a couple ofpeople said it was cheaper to

tear down that part ofthe house and rebuild. On the south there would be a screen porch in the middle,

which would mimic the style ofthe house. They are trying to maximize the east sun. There will be no

garage,although they are thinking one could be added to the back ofthe house. The entire back yard will

be re-graded and the existing cement slab would be removed. The footprint would be smaller.

Mr. Salvage likes the plan,and Mr. Parris reminded him to stay within setbacks and lot coverage.

Discussion ensued about the roofline and Mr. Burris provided advice about the roofline,windows

and doors,chimneys,and corner trim. Mr. Burriss thought ifthe ceiling height were lower,it would add

to the distinctly different addition.

Mr. Myers said the house is pure simplicity and asked whether applicant could move the addition

in 18"or so and keep the lines ofthe house on the Summit side. He wanted the applicant to be careful

about proportions.

Iftrees have to be removed,Mr. Myers would have no problem.

Mr. Burriss asked for a site plan with a footprint ofthe original house,what is to be removed,and

what is to be added.

Granville Historical SocietvS -innett House Addition and Connector

Laura Andujar,architect,showed her new drawings. Mr. Myers wished there were a way to

completely divorce the Sinnett House and the original building. He wants to see this plan in a 3-D

perspective and would then be willing to put it in the context ofthe street. Ms. Andujar will email the

plans to Mr. Myers.

Southgate Company Limited PartnershipV -ariances to 7 Lots in The Colonv Phase II

Larry Parr explained that they have built 17 homes, 5 are standard size. The market is requesting

plus-size houses,and seven of the lots in Phase II are not large enough to accommodate them. He has

requested either rear yard or side yard setback variances from the Board ofZoning and Building Appeals

to be able to add a screen porch or the plus-size option for these 7 lots in Phase II. The Board of Zoning

and Building Appeals requested that the Planning Commission give their informal approval to changing

this many lots,because they did not know whether this was a minor or major modification.

Encroachments would be 3.35' for those lots needing a rear yard variance and 4' for those lots needing a

side yard variance.

Mr. Parris,who lives in the Bryn Du Woods subdivision, sees no problem with the plan. The

consensus of the group saw no problem with the encroachments. The Board ofZoning and Building

Appeals has requested a recommendation,and Mr. Salvage offered the following resolution:

New Business:

Andrew T &ricia Rawnsley,430 West Broadway S-ide and Rear Yard Fence

Mr. Dorman said the applicants want to install a 42"picket fence,some of which would be in the

TCOD. The fence would be in 8' sections. Posts would be 36"and pickets would be 1"x 4"treated

lumber.

Mr. Rawnsley said the fence is for pet containment,and there will be a gate across the driveway.

They are building the fence themselves, and were not planning on painting the fence. Members said that

they require the fence to be painted or stained, and gave suggestions as to the paint color.

MR. PARRIS MOVED TO APPROVE APPLICATION # 01-138 WITH THE STIPULATION THAT

Mr. Dorman said the applicant wishes to build an 800 square foot addition, 400 on each floor, and

demolish the existing addition. The addition will have new stairs, restroom, and classroom. The addition

will be a little wider than the existing 1-story addition, but still narrower than the existing primary

Granville Planning Commission,10/ 9/01

structure and will not be visible from Main Street.

Bill Hanes said the need for the addition is to build a new stairway to meet code;also we will be

adding another restroom. Mr.Burriss said the original wasjust stuck on,and Mr. Hanes said they will

match the existing materials and windows as best as they'can. Mr. Hanes said they will hide AC units

and will hide the dumpster,although they have not discussed it yet. Members preferred vegetation over

fencing for the purpose ofscreening the AC and trash containment. Mr. Salvage suggested conditionally

approving the application pending more information on the dumpster and screening.

MR.PARRIS MOVED TO APPROVE APPLICATION0 #1-140 WITH THE CONDITION THAT THE

APPLICANT RETURNS WHEN THEY HAVE SPECIFICATIONS FOR SCREENING THE HVAC

EQUIOMENT AND DUMPSTER OR TRASH CANS. MR. WILKENFELD SECONDED,AND THE

support for the Church's plans.

Barb Lucier appeared briefly and said the Village Council passed the sign ordinance;modifications

included time limit for holiday lighting and changeable signs for churches. }

RobertHill,209 West BroadwayT -woc-ar Garage

Mr. Dorman said the applicant wishes to demolish the existing carport and build a two-car garage

with gambrel roof The garage will be 24' x 30',with white siding and dark green shutters. He will not

need any variances.

Bob Hill said they have no storage in house and no attic and only a moldy cellar. The garage will

have two separate doors. A little portico with columns will be added later and they may redo an addition

to the back ofthe house later. The garage will be less visible from Broadway than the carport is.

Mr. Parris asked about mullions on the windows and Mr. Hill said he would do that if it was

necessary.

MR. WILKENFELD MOVED TO APPROVE APPLICATION0 #1-142 SUBJECT TO THE

FOLLOWING CONDITIONS: 1)THAT TIi{E WINDOWS HAVE MULLIONS; AND 2)THAT THE

GARAGE HAS 2 VEHICLE DOORT§NE,BSE OF 1 LARGE DOOR. MR. PARRIS SECONDED,AND

THE MOTION WAS UNANIMOUSLY?APPROVED.

Work Session:

Judy Guenther.230 East BroadwayC -hapike ofUse

The applicant wishes to open a tea shop in the former Crown and Cushion location.

Scott Walker said there are setback and lot coverage issues,which will need a variance. They plan

a one-story addition with walk-out basement for storage and delivery. Judy Guenther wants to serve

soup, sandwiches, and desserts in the tea shop. The restaurant would be open from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.,and

a gift shop on the second floor would have longer hours. She plans to have a two-burner electric hotplate

and an oven in the wall. She will check with the health department for requirements. Food will be

prepared on site.

Mr. Burriss asked about delivery and trash removal and said drawings will be needed. The

2

Granville Planning Commission,10/ 9/ 01

delivery schedule will be worked out later. Special attention should be paid buildings to the relationship of the to your side;one is a commercial structure and the other is residential.

Mr. Parris asked about changes to the existing structure and fire codes. Mr. Walker said the

proposed use is below the 4,600 square feet allowed and so they won't need fire partitions.

Mr. Parris asked about permitted and conditional uses,and Mr. Walker said a tearoom is permitted, and Mr. Dorman concurred.

Mr. Burriss asked about architectural details and was concerned about putting on a big square box

to the back of a building in a residential area. Scale is important. We don't want a blank wall with an

exhaust vent sticking out. We would take greater pains to look at elevations in this area. The residence to

the east is a beautiful building. These houses were moved and grew and grew. Noise and odors are

critical factors. Regarding massing, there are ways to break it down. There needs to be consistency

among the three buildings there.

No one had serious opposition to the project.

Judy Guenther asked about next steps. Mr. Myers said the key thing is screening of trash to keep

animals out. Detailed drawings will be required. Mr. Burriss did not want it to look like a commercial

addition. The group suggested that another work session would be in order.

Ross IGA.484 SouthMain StreetC -hanges to Rear Addition and ProposedFront Facade

The Rosses want to talk about changes to the rear addition, which was approved earlier,and the

proposed front facade.

Andy Ross said they are running into cost overrun problems with the addition and problems with

the air condensers and the porta-pak. He said the condenser units would be 5' taller than the porta-pak

units. They cannot lower the AC units. The new proposal is to take the porta-pak offthe roof and put it

on the ground. The AC units would move to the top of the porta-pak. This would have to be screened, but

Mr. Ross would not want to put block around it due to the expense, and he was told that a wood fence

would be fine.

Mr. Parris didn't think this was a minor modification. Drawings will be required.

Mr. Ross said regarding the front facade, it will jut out 40' into the parking lot. They will bring the

ATM inside the building.

Mr. Burriss doesn't want it to be a flat facade.

Mr. Myers hears no opposition to changes in the rear but has concerns about having a flat facade

in the front. He likes both proposals, the one story building with a tower, and the 2-3 story facade.

Gra, iville Historical Society

Bob Hill wanted to update the Planning Commission about their plans. They want to keep the

building separate so everyone will recognize the Sinnett House. They are limited in space for archives.

He showed drawings of their proposed plans. The Village gave the Historical Society 9' in their right of

way in the 19505.

Mr. Myers wants to see total elevations. His concern is the second story and the long rambling

length combined with the concise Sinnett House.

Mr. Burriss said at one time there was talk of an atrium with the Sinnett House separate and a

glass bridge connection. There are two jewels here, and we need a happy marriage between the buildings.

He thinks more architectural work is needed. The Natural Park Service has guidelines on adding to a

historical structure. There needs to be clear distinction between buildings. There are merits to.this plan,

but they need the same vocabulary.

3

Granville Planning Commission,10/ 9/0'1

Mr. Myers gave architectural suggestions.

Mr.Parris feels this is crucial to the community and we need to work together to make it work.

Mr. Burriss described the former Burke Hall and its architectural style and gave suggestions as to

Sinnett House in its Greek Revival style. Leave each building intact and have a transition between them.

Mr. Wilkenfeld suggested asking Village Council to supply funds to hire an architect,and the

group concurred.

MR. SALVAGE MOVED TO PASS A RESOLUTION TO VILLAGE COUNCIL;WHEREAS,

Dean Ramsey,landscape architect,said there has been a lot ofdiscussion about the juxtaposition

betweentIGA and the gas station. When he talked to Ms. Ross,she told him that they have to widen the

approach by 10'.Mr. Ramsey said they are trying to make the traffic more functional. He showed GPC

members how the driveway would be altered to allow more stacking. This would avoid having people

cross in the middle. They would abandon a part ofthe bank space and enlarge the loop with one entrance

and exit'. Planting will be along walkway islands. Parking areas would be changed to get in more

parking.,They can put in some bollards with lights. Mrs. Ross is not completely happy with the new

traffic plan.

Andy Furr,from Certified,stated that this would be a revision ofGPC's prior approval. An

agreement has been reached with the Village,but there are other issues here. We agreed to move it back

Mr.Ramsey said the gas station's throat needs to be narrowed and moved back from the street.

He said he got a more accurate survey and it changed the parking slightly. He needed space for

movement of cars.

Mr. Kent wanted to update the GPC on his plans, which are essentially what was previously

approved. He has added some trees, and he wanted to move Lot 521 a little bit, and Lot 523 by the

pond that was shifted.

Mr. Wilkenfeld asked about any plans for the Village's preserving any of the land, and Mr.

Kent said he has heard nothing. They will do engineering work in the spring and will need to know the

Village's intent.

Mr. Kent clarified GPC members' questions about sidewalks, greenspace, walking paths, and

Mr. Dorman said the applicant wishes to install a white sandblasted wood sign with raised black

letters, which will project from the building. It will be 3'x2' and double sided. Mr. Adams feels that

some people find it difficult to read the current sign.

Mr. Myers felt a simpler sign would be easier to read and less expensive. Sandblasted signs are

not historically accurate for the Village. Members preferred a flat sign with black letters and white

background, with letters either vinyl or painted.

entrance and the privacy fence along the rear of his property. On Main Street the board fence will be a 4'

and in the rear,5' tall. The fence will be painted hunter green to match trims.

Mr. Myers had some concerns: ( 1)A 4-board fence is really urban,and a picket fence is more

typical in the village. 2( )At least on the Main Street side,it could be dropped to a threer-ail fence rather

than four. On the side it would be 5' high with 5 boards. The problem is at the point of transition. ,

Members suggested turning the corner with the 3-board fence just for the first section and then popping it

up to 5'.Mr. Williams agreed with the proposal to make the Main street side three boards. The top board

will be down a little bit from the posts.

MR. SALVAGE MOVED TO APPROVE APPLICATION # 01-115 SUBJECT TO THE FOLLOWING:

1)THAT THE FENCE ALONG MAIN STREET AND ONE SECTION OF TRANSITION FROM

MAIN STREET TO THE REAR WILL BE 36"HIGH WITH 3 BOARD CONSTRUCTION;2)THE

COLOR OF ALL THE FENCING WILL BE HUNTER GREEN;AND 3)THE BOARD SIDE OF THE

FENCE MUST FACE MAIN STREET. MR. PARRIS SECONDED,AND THE MOTION WAS

UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.

Brian and Leslie Newkirk,226 East BroadwavC -hange ofUse

The applicants wish to change the use ofthe building from an antique shop to a beauty parlor

The beauty parlor currently is at 121 North Prospect. The Building Code Department stated that no

upgrades are necessary. Ms. Newkirk said they plan to clean up the building and make it look better.

Only landscaping and cosmetic improvements are necessary. The upstairs will remain as a rental

property.

The applicant was not present so the group decided to postpone consideration until later in the

agenda. By the end ofthe meeting he had not appeared, so since there were questions,the Planning Commission wanted to table this.

MR. SALVAGE MOVED TO TABLE APPLICATION # 01-118 UNTIL MR. DAVIS CAN BE

PRESENT. MR. PARRIS SECONDED,AND THE MOTION WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.

Centenary UnitedMethodist Church,102 East BroadwavE -ast Addition

Mr. Dorman said tonight the church representatives are here formally to request approval of their

east addition. The BZBA has approved the necessary variances.

Mr. Waggoner said that following the work sessions;two changes are ready for presentation

tonight. ( 1)In the transition,the previous design showed the windows offset and at the Planning

Commission's request,the windows have been redesigned and centered over the door and the stained

glass window will be replaced in the alcove. 2( )The driveway is to be maintained at its present width.

3)The ramp is to be moved inside the building,although it will take up space. The advantage is that

putting the ramp inside means it will be better protected from the elements and more aesthetic. The east

elevation doors will be set back such that the door swings will not penetrate the sidewalk. A( spire will be

added at a later time.)The existing three trees on Broadway will remain.

Mr. Wilkenfeld's original concern was a separation between the old and new buildings, and the

alcove is a nice transition. Although he would have preferred more greenspace,he acknowledges the

amount ofwork that has gone into this project. Mr. Parris hopes that someday the alleyway will be a

pedestrian alley.

The architect,Phil Markwood,described roof design and lighting. They will try to match the

color ofthe stucco with the existing building, but there are cracks in the old stucco that might need repair

and repainting anyway. Mr. Burriss asked whether a slightly different shade could be considered for the

two structures. This would break up the mass. Mr. Markwood agreed and thought a subtle texture change

mightbe as important as a color change.

MR. SALVAGE MOVED TO APPROVE APPLICATION # 01-049 SUBJECT TO THE FOLLOWING:

1)THAT,WHEN KNOWN,THE EXTERIOR LIGHTING PACKAGE WILL BE BROUGHT BACK

BEFORE THE PLANNING COMMISSION FOR FINAL APPROVAL;AND 2)WHEN KNOWN,THE

FINAL EXTERIOR COLORS AND TEXTURES WILL BE BROUGHT BACK BEFORE THE

PLANNING COMMISSION FOR FINAL APPROVAL. MR. PARRIS SECONDED,AND THE

MOTION WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.

Old Business:

Park National Bank.119 East BroadwayA -wning Sign

Having received approval to add two " ATM'signs, the finished product turned out to be much

larger than what was approved. The Village Planner had assumed the drawing was to scale and that each

3

GPC,8/23/ 01 4

sign would be I square foot. Jenny Nelson, wide; the applicant,believed each letter was to be 8"tall and 12" which made the sign disproportionately large. She said there was a misunderstanding on the 8" letters and each letter was to be 12"n,ot the total sign.

Ted Handel,the awning man,said that ifyou scale an 8"letter,you come out with 12"width. It would cost $ 200 to change it now.

Mr.Myers said we are dependent upon drawings submitted to us. In the application it said 8"and it's hard for us to speculate. We have received many complaints about the oversized sign. Also,the application showed a serif font,but this one is not a seriffont. What got done was different from what

was submitted. Ms. Nelson does not argue the point but thought the main concern was color. She thought an 8"x 12"sign would look awkward.

Mr. Salvage said we have been burned in the past by people that built something different then what was approved. We never would have approved this ATM sign. We can table or deny the application,but we prefer for the applicant to tell us what she wants. Ms. Nelson agreed to table it.

SECONDED,AND THE MOTION WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.

CertifiedOil Company.433 SouthMain StreetM -inor Modifications

Mr. Dorman said that 1( )At the request of the BZBA,Certified has agreed to add a bike rack on the north side;2 ()At the request of the Tree and Landscape Commission,additional trees should be added

at the rear ofthe building;and ( 3)At the recommendation of Certified's engineers,a storm water

retention pond in front ofthe station needs to be added. It would be a depression of 1'3"over a span of

30' in the right ofway.

Mr. Myers thought the depression would look " awful"in front and will just hold a little bit of

water since they are next to the creek. Since Main Street looks so much better now,it would really be

compromised by these puddles. Water should be able to be channeled into a drain. Mr. Salvage said these

regulations fall under county planning.

Mr. Salvage said the Planning Commission is prepared to approve the bike rack and the

landscaping but they would like to see a different retention than in the landscaping bed in front.

Engineers have to look at what was impervious before, and they only have to add retention if they are

adding to the impervious area. Mr. Myers said retentions are ok in the county but do not fit in the Village

and should not be in the right-of-way.

MR. SALVAGE MOVED THAT WE FIND THE MODIFICATIONS PROPOSED FOR THE

BIKERACK AND ADDITIONAL TREES IN THE BACK ARE MINOR MODIFICATIONS. MR.

WILKENFELD SECONDED, AND THE MOTION WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.

Kathryn Raker.117 East Elm Street -Change of Use

Mr. Dorman said the application is to change the use from a beauty salon back to a medical

office. The change was made but the beauty shop never opened, so the applicant wants to change it

back to a medical office, which is its current use.

Ms. Raker said she appreciated the Planning Commission's efforts to help with the situation.

She had been told it was ok to have the new tenant move in, but was not told she would have to apply

for a change of use.

MR. WILKENFELD MOVED TO APPROVE APPLICATION # 01-086 AS PRESENTED, MR.

Larry Biefeid,121 East Elm StreetO -nec-ar Garage

Mr. Dorman said the applicant is requesting a 16'x12' one-car garage. The materials and colors

will match the house. The applicant will go before the BZBA on August 9 for side and rear yard setbacks

and lot coverage variances.

Mr. Biefeld said his mother has lived in the house most of her life and would like a place to put

her car and some storage room for her gardening tools.

MR, SALVAGE MOVED TO APPROVE APPLICATION # 01-088 SUBJECT TO THE FOLLOWING:

1)THE COLORS TO BE USED ON THE GARAGE WILL MATCH THE HOUSE;AND ( 2)

Granville Planning Commission,7/ 23/ 01

The Home and Garden Shop.119 East Elm StreetS -andwich BoardandWindow Signs

Mr.Dorman stated that the applicant already has a sign in the window,and ifapproval for a

sandwich board is granted,it should be at the front door behind the planter. The window sign exceeds the

maximum allowable size for a window sign.

Mr. Parris wondered what business the sandwich board sign would bring in beyond what business

the window sign brings in,since it would be about 5'from the front door.

Kathy Merkle said that most ofthe traffic comes from the alley and people say they cannot see her

window sign. The sandwich board sign would be a one-sided sign.

Mr. Myers said that normally sandwich boards are offthe sidewalk. But here cars park right in

front ofthe store. A sandwich board's value seems marginal to him,fearing it would clutter up the

doorway. Sandwich boards are for pedestrian traffic mostly.He thought the sign in the window is good

but the signage on the building is "not terrific."Even the window sign is over code limits;all the other

signs on the building add up to excessive signage.

Mr. Salvage's concerns are that people cannot see the window sign because cars are parked in

front of it. Also,the window sign reflects sunlight and is hard to read.

Mr. Parris thought ifthe sign in the window were white,it would be more visible. He also

recommended putting the store's name on the awning instead ofa sandwich board.

Mr. Wilkenfeld thought there were too many signs on the building,but a sandwich board catches

his eye as he walks by. He asked whether one ofthe window signs could be eliminated,fearing setting a

precedent for excessive signage. Mr. Myers is comfortable with the window signs.

Mr. Burriss asked since there is a red and white o"pen"sign in the window,ifit could be removed

as soon as the applicant begins using the sandwich board sign,which will also say " open ,and Ms.

Merkle said yes.

Members applied the application to the criteria for variances:

A. That special circumstances or conditions exist which are peculiar to the land or structure( s)

involved and which are not applicable to other lands or structures in the same zoning

district.Since there are three or four tenants in the building,this situation fits the criterion.

B. That a literal interpretation of the provisions of this Zoning Ordinance would deprive the

applicants of rights commonly enjoyed by other properties in the same zoning district under

the provisions of this Ordinance. It would deprive the applicant of rights enjoyed by others.

C. That the special conditions and circumstances do not result from the actions of the applicant.

They do not result from actions of the applicant.

D. That the granting of the variance will not confer on the applicant any undue privilege that is

denied by this Ordinance to other lands or structures in the same zoning district. No undue

privilege is noted.

E. That the granting of the variance will in no other manner adversely affect the health,safety

and general welfare of the persons residing or working within the vicinity of the proposed

variance. No adverse affects are noted.

MR..SALVAGE MOVED THAT WE APPROVE VARIANCES FOR THIS APPLICATION AND

THAT VARIANCES ALLOW FOR SIGNAGE AS PRESENTED IN BOTH QUANTITY AND

SQUARE FOOTAGE,AND WE FIND THE VARIANCES CONSISTENT WITH CONDITIONS

UNDER 1147 OF THE CODE. MR WILKENFELD SECONDED,AND THE MOTION WAS

UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.

Granville Planning Commission,7/23/ 01

MR. WILKENFELD MOVED TO APPROVE APPLICATION # 01-090 SUBJECT TO THE

FOLLOWING: 1 ()THE LETTERING ON THE SANDWICHBOARD WILL BE GREEN TO MATCH

THE AWNING;2 ()THE RED"OPEN"SIGNWILL BE REMOVED ONCE THEY START USING

THE SANDWICH BOARD;AND (3)THE APPLICANT IS TO PROVIDE MATERIALS TO THE

VILLAGE PLANNER FORHIS FINAL APPROVAL. MR. SALVAGE SECONDED,AND THE

MOTION WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.

Susan and Doug Rockwell, 129 West BroadwayE -xterior Renovations

Mr. Dorman explained the exterior renovations,including: 1( )Enclose side porch,and match

materials;2 ()Replace windows on south with patio doors to provide access to garden;3 ()Replace siding

on rear addition;4 ()Install patio,extending current patio; 5 ()Move 3' gate and line up with garage;6 ()

possibly remove asphalt drive and replace with sod.

Doug Rockwell said they do want to remove the asphalt The back doors will not be French

doors,but rather will be 8' sliding glass doors, 16' wide. The reason for enclosing the porch is that the

porch is in poor condition. They would like more storage space for coats.

Mr. Burriss asked about the porch floor and was told it will be replaced with pressure treated

lumber. He thought the front elevation could be improved. When you fill in a space with stucco,it gets a

little crowded. The window on the side could be centered. He has concerns about running stucco up to

existing posts. Joining stucco with wood is not always successful. He would like to see the Italianate

rhythm continued on the porch. He thinks there could be an outside window up above. He recommended

consulting with the contractor on these details. Other houses under similar situations have suffered from

rot. He likes the posts and wants to preserve them. Mr. Rockwell thought a window could be added.

They considered clapboard, but that would make it look more like something stuck on. The wall will be

flush with existing columns. Ned Roberts suggested installing a shutter ( false)window on the street side

and that would allow the applicant to still use the space for coats, etc.

Mr. Wilkenfeld noted the porch has a certain grace, which may be lacking in the new design.

Mr. Myers said everything is good but he is uncomfortable about the porch. Mr. Salvage said if he

centers the window under the window above and adds a blind window with frame that should be all right.

MR. SALVAGE MOVED TO APPROVE APPLICATION # 01-092 SUBJECT TO THE FOLLOWING:

1)THAT THE DESIGN OF THE ENCLOSURE OF THE SIDE PORCH BE COORDINATED WITH

MR. BURRISS,INCLUDING THE BLIND WINDOW AND THE CENTERING OF THE WINDOW

ALONG THE DRIVEWAY SIDE. MR. PARRIS SECONDED,AND THE MOTION WAS

UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.

It was added that installing landkcaping along the driveway side is optional.

Virginia and Robert Abbott,1028 NewarkG- ranville RoadF -ence and Landscaping

Mr. Dorman said the applicant wants to install a wrought iron fence with stucco columns in the

front and side yard that would connect with existing fencing. They also wish to instalilandscaping in the

front yard near the front entrance.

Virginia Abbott explained the plantings she has in mind,including a tight hedge thit can handle

harsh conditions next to the road. She described the fence design,which met with general approval.

Frits Rizor.326 North Pearl StreetF e-nce and Exterior Renovations

Mr. Dorman said the request is to install a picket fence to enclose the back yard,replacing the

existing chain link fence. His neighbor has agreed to the plan;2 ()Add a railing to the front porch;3 (3)

Reduce the size ofthe deck and resurface it;and 4()Add a railing to the deck.

Fritz Rizor said the width ofthe pickets would equal the space in-between.

MR. SALVAGE MOVED TO APPROVE APPLICATION0 #10-96 AND TO GIVE THE APPLICANT

THE OPTION OF GOING TO 2"SPACES ON THE FENCE. MR. PARRIS SECONDED,AND THE

MOTION WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.

BruceWestall,241 East Maple StreetS -econd Story Addition.

Mr.Dorman showed where the new bath and walk-in closet would be added to the second floor.

Ned Roberts said they are going to raise the roofover the kitchen,and the fascia will match up the gable

and tie into it with the same pitch.

MR.WILKENFELD MOVED TO APPROVE APPLICATION0 #1-097 AS PRESENTED. MR.

PARRIS SECONDED,AND THE MOTION WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.

Vincent Paumier,329 North Granger StreetB -arn Addition

Mr. Dorman said the applicant was unaware he needed a permit to demolish the shed which was

attached to the barn and has already started construction. The new addition will duplicate the footprint of

the former structure. The back and side will be enclosed but the front will have a partial opening. He will

need a variance for the rear yard setback and will go to the BZBA on August 9. The metal roofwill

match the existing barn roof,and the paint and siding will match the siding.

Brian Rapp represented the applicant,who was out of town. He did not know whether a door

would be added. The storage is for bikes and lawn equipment and cannot be seen from the street.

MR. PARRIS MOVED TO APPROVE APPLICATION0 #1-098 WITH THE FOLLOWING

CONDITIONS: 1 ()THAT THE APPLICANT BE GIVEN THE OPTION OF PUTTING A DOOR ON

THE FRONT ELEVATION OF THE STRUCTURE;2 ()WE ALSO GIVE RETROACTIVE

APPROVAL OF THE DEMOLITION AND REPLACEMENT OF THE PREVIOUS STRUCTURE;

AND ( 3)APPROVAL SUBJECT TO BZBA APPROVAL FOR THE REAR YARD SETBACK. MR.

SALVAGE SECONDED,AND THE MOTION WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.

Jon Ravmond.Village Coffee Company.132 East Broadway L Awning Sign,

Mr. Dorman said the applicant wants a red and black awning with the words " Village Coffee

Company"on the valance. He is asking for a similar smaller awning over the rear door.

MR. WILKENFELD MOVED TO APPROVE APPLICATION # 01-099 AS PRESENTED. MR.

SALVAGE SECONDED,AND THE MOTION WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.

Old Business:

Denison University, 135 NorthMain StreetM -odification to Add Roofing Materials

Mr. Dorman said tonight's concern is with roof shingles and the previously approved porch.

Mr. Parris asked whether the porch floor is a subfioor or the final floor and was told it is the final

floor. Mr. Burriss noted that when the applicant was here before we asked if there would be a traditional

porch floor and the answer was yes,but this is not traditional. He also thought that the panels should have

4

Granville Planning Commission,7/23/ 01

a solid frame around them. He thought there was sufficient overhang to get under it and add cove

molding.

Mr. Myers asked whether there could be a 2/6 trim board over the ends,and Mr. Burriss wants to

be sure the project is both functional and visually appealing.

Mr.Myers summarized: 1 ()It's a minor modification2; ()The porch floor will be painted dark

and should match the house; 3 ()Modifications to the lattice;4 ()Modifications to the front door; 5 ()

Modification ofroofing materials;and ( 6)Applicant is to come back with color samples for the Village

Planner's approval.

Dan Spence from Denison thought a thermo-pane window would be ok. Originally the Planning

Commission approved re-shingling the small roof and replacing the slate roof Dan Spence said the

roofer started to work on it and found the slate too soft and deteriorated to be reused. They would have as

much money working on slate as we did in putting on a shingle roof. SlateLine is supposed to resemble

slate,or they could use TimberLine.

Mr. Burriss wants the color of roofto tie in with other colors.

MR. SALVAGE MOVED THAT WE FIND THIS TO BE A MINOR MODIFICATION OF

APPLICATION0 #1-045. MR. BURRISS SECONDED,AND THE MOTION WAS UNANIMOUSLY

APPROVED.

MR. SALVAGE MOVED TO APPROVE MODIFICATIONS TO APPLICATION0 #1-045 AS

FOLLOWS: ( 1)THE PORCH FLOOR WILL BE PAINTED A DARK COLOR TO BE APPROVED

BY THE VILLAGE PLANNER;2 ()FRONT DOORS CAN BE EITHERWOOD ORMETAL BUT rN

EITHER CASE WILL BE DESIGNED TO MATCH THE EXISTING FRONT DOOR;3 ()APPROVE

USE OF THE GAF SLATELINE SHINGLES FOR THE MAIN ROOF AND A METAL ROOF ON

THE PORCH AND BAY WINDOW,WITH COLORS TO BE APPROVED BY THE VILLAGE

PLANNER;AND ( 4)WE WANT A TRIM BOARD AROUND THE TOP AND SIDES OF THE

LATTICEWORK OF THE PORCH AND TOP OF LATTICE WORK OF PORCH WITH COLORS TO

BE APPROVED BY THE VILLAGE PLANNER. MR. WILKENFELD SECONDED,AND THE

MOTION WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED

Comments for the Good of the Order:

Mr. Salvage brought up the fact that at our last meeting we approved an awning over the ATM at

Park National Bank,but the letters are excessively big. According to the approval, sign was to be 8"x12",

but the bank rep said she wanted 8"x12"letters. Mr. Myers suggested telling her to take the letters off or

come in for a modification b(ut it's likely to be denied).

New Business:

Park National Bank,119 East BroadwayA -wning Sign

Mr. Dorman said the applicant wants to replace the awning with a blue one and place the letters

ATM"on both sides. A variance will be needed for the number of signs and for maximum allowable

square footage. Jenny Nelson added that the awning over the ATM machine will be navy blue with 8"

red letters and will be the same size as the existing worn out red awning. They will remove the letters

ATM"from the window.

Mr. Wilkenfeld suggested making the letters white to be more visible, and Ms. Nelson agreed.

MR. PARRISS MOVED TO APPROVE APPLICATION # 01-087 WITH THE STIPULATION THAT

THE LETTERS "ATM"BE WHITE. MR. WILKENFELD SECONDED, AND THE MOTION WAS

Old Business:

Taylors' Drugs,200 East BroadwavL -andscaping

Mr. Dorman said the Village wishes to modify a previous approval to incorporate an agreement

between GPC and the Tree and Landscape Commission on the north side landscaping. The plantings are

already in place,but Mr. Dorman is not sure they are what GPC approved.

Jim Siegel expressed several points of deviation after reviewing the plantings: 1 ( )The two trees

planted on the Prospect Street side are not ash. They turned out to be silk lilacs. 2( )As for the plantings

on the back across the north side, the three pear trees that are in are really what the Tree & Landscape

Commission recommended. They will do a nice job of screening. 3 ( )The shrubberyy (ews)was not

really the variety that they originally said they were going to install, which was another yew ( hicksii).So

something happened there. 4( )Regarding the new tree planted on the Broadway side next to the entrance,

although Mr. Siegel thinks it is probably the right species, he is not happy with the appearance of it. It

does not have the canopy it should have. Mike Flood says he wants everybody to agree on landscaping,

and they can change the plantings.

Mr, Myers said the north side is a big wall and the hicksii yews will take 8-10 years to minimize

the impact. The trees we lost on Prospect would have done much to make the building look like it has

been there for a while. Regarding the silk lilacs,Mr. Siegel wanted them in originally,but in talking with

Mike Flood,we should go with the ash to match the other ones on Broadway,with a couple of different

varieties.

Granville Planning Commission,July 9,2001

Mr.Burriss asked whether the space onProspect would be sufficient for ash trees,and was told

yes,that they were very generous on the size ofthe tree pits. Mr. Siegel said the Green Mountain Sugar

Maples have been in on Broadway about 4 years or less and are the same as those in front ofthe post

office.

Consensus agreed with recommendations byT&L and there is no need to take official action. Mr.

Dorman will work details out with Joe Hickman and the applicant.

Work Sessions:

Dan Rogers.210 EastMapleN -onc-ompliant Garage

Mr. Salvage recused himselffrom this discussion. }

Ned Roberts presented the new drawings with greater detail,as requested. He said there are two

different front elevatioonnse-showing the garage with two windows together so the doors are more

4 colonial style. Gingerbread details accent cornices and corner detail. 2 ()Shed roofover the garage door

f j /L-would have a 5 pitch,but he thinks it looks very busy. So the proposal is with orwithout the shed roof.

A shed roof would have cornice detail on either side.

Mr. Burriss had concerns about ( 1)the bracket detail,the marriage ofit to the building. The house

has a clean band over the windows,which should be duplicated on the garage. M (r. Rogers said this

would be on the drawing.2) ) I(fthe smaller roofwe asked to see over the garage doors occurs,the

brackets need to be larger to be in scale. He wants to see more detail on the actual proposal. Mr. Myers

R, thought the first band could be uninterrupted and the second,on a smaller window,cou}d be interrupted.

M.5--More discussion ensued on the bands,window styles,on ceiling height,etc.

might. The placement and size ofwindows in the rear were discussed,and suggestions were made to put

triple windows downstairs and to make the two upstairs windows equidistant under the bracket.

Regarding the roofover the door,Mr. Burriss thinks it does help break down the massing and he

likes the feeling ofthat detail.

Methodist Church,102 East BroadwayM -ajor Expansion Project

Mr. Dorman said that the church,at the suggestion ofPlanning Commission,has been to 2 BZBA

meetings and has been tabled twice. They have gone back to the drawing board and are here to discuss

their latest architectural and site drawings.

Mr. Waggoner again said the church wants to maximize the space for their needs. With John

Minsker and Shane Chalker,they described changes to the plans. The addition will go right to the curb.

enthusiasm of GPC. Much discussion ensued about the possible location for the elevator,which is made

more difficult with the five levels inside the church. The Planning Commission suggested finding a way

to internalize the ramp system,which the Church agreed to do.

Mr. Burriss wanted to ensure balance and provided suggestions for the little door on Broadway.

Mr. Wilkenfeld wants more space along the alley and more greenspace. They could just move the

new building back a couple offeet by forfeiting a couple offeet inside.

Michael Eisenman,117 East Elm StreetS -ign

The application is for a black and white,3.25 square foot sign on the existing signpost for the

former tenant's sign. Mr. Myers thought entarging the word P"odiatrista"nd his name and making the

telephone number smaller could improve the design. Mr. Wilkenfeld suggested omitting the area code,

and Mr. Salvage suggested a border around the sign. Dr. Eisenman said it would be luster board,a shiny

material with black letters applied. It will not be painted.

MR. SALVAGE MOVED TO APPROVE APPLICATION0 #1-080,SUBJECT TO THE FOLLOWING:

1)THAT THE APPLICANT HAVE THE OPTION TO PUT A BLACK BORDER AROUND THE

SIGN;AND ( 2)THAT THE TEXT IS MODIFIED SUCH THAT"PODIATRIST"IS BOLD OR A

LARGER FONT SIZE TO SET IT OFF,AND THAT THE PHONE NUMBER MATCH THE REST OF

THE TEXT (Not bold and smaller).MR. WILKENFEND SECONDED,AND THE MOTION WAS

UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.

Mr. Lucier reminded the group that Mr. Pinkerton had at one time applied for a change ofuse for a

beauty shop and was approved for it. Ifthis were still in effect,it would require a change ofuse back to

what it had been previously. Mr. Salvage thought that technically,Dr. Raker o(wner)should make the

application to return the building to the former use.

CertifiedOil Company,433 SouthMain StreetR -enovation

Following up on several work sessions,Andy Furr presented formal plans for the razing and

renovations,taking into account all suggestions by GPC. Mr. Furr has been talking to IGA owners about

traffic patterns but has not come to final decision.

Mr. Furr explained the facade with dormers for the plan,which was redrawn according to

recommendations ofMr. Burriss. He also explained the lighting plan in detail,which met with praise

from GPC. If and when the Village adds streetlights in the area,two of Certified's pole lights closest to

South Main Street could be eliminated,but Mr. Furr wants to keep the ground light for the sign.

Mr. Myers had several suggestions on the landscaping plan,to which Mr. Furr agreed. The plan 2

Old Business:

Shurtz Management,204 Mitnson StreetS i-gns

MR. SALVAGE MOVED TO TAKE 01-046 OFF THE TABLE. MR. WILKENFELD SECONDED,

AND THE MOTION WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.

At the last meeting GPC wanted to table this because the applicant was not present to answer

questions. Tonight David Shurtz explained the rationale for the No Parking signs,saying that vehicles

from the construction company and others park there in the grassy area. This is private property and they

don't want cars there. One sign is between the two garage doors, and the other is on the parking lot at the

north side.

Mr. Parris observed that this was originally tabled because it was seen as an obscure location, but

Mr. Shurtz said people park there overnight sometimes and he cannot complain to the police ifthere are

no signs prohibiting parking. The building is not being used now except for storage. When asked whether

he would take down a sign when new tenants arrive,Mr. Shurtz said this is up to his father. It's a narrow

drive and cars have smashed into the culvert several times. Ms. Lucier asked whether one sign might be

sufficient, and Mr. Shurtz stated that people probably don't understand where our property line is, and this

would be a gray area without a sign.

There are two tow-away signs and one business sign. Mr. Salvage is not sure whether this signage

would fall under our rules for variances. He thinks we have allowed for some ofthese under the Ohio

Revised Code. He does not see a need for the variance. People see a parking lot and want to park there.

Perhaps they could remove the business sign.

MR. SALVAGE MOVED TO APPROVE APPLICATION # 01-046 WITH THE CONDITION THAT

Granville Planning Commission,6/11/ 01, 3

THE CURRENT BUSINESS IDENTIFICATION SIGN BE REMOVED. SECONDED, MR.WILKENFELD AND THE MOTION WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.

Granville Schools.248 New Burg StreetT -woS-torv Addition

Mr. Salvage recused himselffrom this application and presented the application on behalf ofthe school. }

MR..PARRIS MOVED TO TAKE THE APPLICATION OFF THE TABLE. MR. WILKENFELD

SECONDED,AND THE MOTION WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.

Mr. Dorman said the school would like to have a two-story addition,brick with a metal roof In addition to the high school addition,the first phase would be to extend the asphalt driveway in front of the middle school to the front ofthe high school, which would require a new curb cut. Phase II would be a new addition between the two schools.

Mr. Salvage explained that as part ofthe construction program,the school wants to add to their

science space and to add nine new teaching rooms because of a tremendous growth in the high school

population. There is adequate parking, and the storm water has been planned for.

Ms. Lucier asked whether the parking,in the front driveway extension,was for teachers,students,

drop-offs,or visitors;and Mr. Salvage replied the intention was not to have busses circle around the

building. Some of the additional parking will be for visitors and some for staff. They are encouraging

drop-offs in the rear. With an extra curb cut,Ms. Lucier was concerned about safety for bikers crossing

the road Mr. Salvage said the school wants to increase security after hours so they can only use the main

entrance. The architect said they want to isolate busses from cars. AA*1 46#-

Mr. Dorman said the Tree and Landscape Committee would meet tomorrow night and make their

recommendations to GPC. Jim Siegel added that he had an opportunity to review the plans with Mr.

Dorman and then he went out and paced off some of the area. He had a few concerns about some of the

trees that will be lost as well as some ofthe trees along New Burg where the new curb cut will be.

Regarding some of the species that the landscapers chose,he is concerned about the over proliferation of

ash because of illnesses or insects. He recommends finding a good balance between hardwoods and

ornamentals, adding good color. He said they would lose one and maybe two 5-6-year-old ash trees with

the new curb cut.

Mr. Salvage said the timeline starts this summer, although the construction schedule has not been

finalized. The new intermediate and high school should be ready for the 2002-2003 school year. They will

keep the modular units for another year.

Mr. Salvage requested that GPC consider the addition and the driveway extension separately from

the landscape plan. The architect was told a landscape plan was required and quickly drew one up,

although he would rather have delayed it until a more thorough study could be made. Mr. Myers was

concerned about the foundation plantings around the building and recommended clustering with a rain

strip plan, rather than little bushes,which would require much maintenance. Mr. Siegel agreed.

MR. PARRIS MOVED TO APPROVE APPLICATION # 01-054 WITH THE FOLLOWING

CONDITIONS:

1. THAT THE LANDSCAPE PLAN IS SEPARATED FROM THIS APPLICATION AND WILL

BE CONSIDERED LATER.

2. THAT MINOR ADJUSTMENTS IN THE POSITION OF THE PROPOSED DRIVEWAY BE

ALLOWED IN ORDER TO SAVE AS MANY EXISTING TREES AS POSSIBLE.

MR. WILKENFELD SECONDED,AND THE MOTION WAS APPROVED BY MAJORITY. ( MR.

SALVAGE HAD RECUSED HIMSELF.)

Work Session:

Dan RogersN -onc-ompliant garage

Mr. Salvage recused himself from this discussion. }

Granville Planning Commission,6/11/ 01, 4

Mr. Rogers has filed an application,but this is a work session,said Mr. Dorman. He showed

pictures ofthe current garage and the planned garage.

Ned Roberts,builder,said the main difference is to change to more of a saltbox style and getting

rid of the hip roof idea. The overhang has been redesigned,and the rear windows were changed. The door

will be six-paneled and recessed.

Ms. Franks objected to the roofline. Ned Roberts said they have agreed to do this,and they want

something on paper so they can move on.

Mr. Myers wanted to deal with the roofline. Options are ( 1)hip roofthat matches house or ( 2)a

gable saltbox. Mr. Burriss felt the saltbox was more in keeping with a carriage house for the time period

of the house. In the historic context for a home of the size of the Rogers's, the garage would have been an

out-building;more of a service structure and a saltbox is more in keeping with that. A hip roof is more ,

massive. Lt*<

There 0 was discussion at one point of adding a cornice,and Dan Rogers said that has been in tha

,/'plans from the beginning;he wanted the building to look like the house. There will be brackets to match

the house. Mr.M- pesa»id the structure should be subordinate to the house. Ned Roberts understands about massing They suggested an awning roof like an eyebrow, over

Vt»the sliding garage doors,and that would break up the massing either with a saltbox or hipped roof. Mr. Rogers explained the guttear-ndd-ownspout plan,and it was found acceptable.

Mr. Parris was concerned about windows,setting precedents,and about variances needed. Mr.

Dorman stated that BZBA granted variances-imtialty and they would have to apply for setback and lot

coverage again,depending on what GPC approves. d>ALUL4 /f»4-*.'Z . 0.-2 Z*c1* 4- - Members discussed the issues of deadlines passed and about noncompliance, and the fact that this

property has gone from one Board to another for a long time. The Legal Advisor said they could apply

and apply and apply if nobody approves it. He said he would check into this issue.

Mr. Myers thought the roof was fairly big and he hopes that the roof with brackets and window

detail will improve the odds with a new application and decrease the massing

Mr. Burris said at one point we had an application for the second roof over garage doors and

pedestrian entrance and he is hoping for consistency. They could be detailed more. Let the pedestrian

entrance and the vehicle entrance each stand on their own. Mr. Myers added that if we were to consider

a hip roof and bracket,the doors themselves would need to be brought into the same vernacular and match

the house more. He thought the design was too big for alhed=xeef. n . E* **ry 4«-f L/ -,d-+'' -

Mr. Burris liked the initial plans and considered them more appropriate for the historic elements of

the village, but he is willing to look at any proposal.

Mr. Wilkenfeld said that when you look down the driveway,you don't see the space between the

garage and the house so it almost looks like the garage is an extension from the house and there is nothing

to differentiate them. He also said the existing shed should be removed as part ofthe application.

Mr. Burriss wants to match brackets to those on the house. The more options you can explore in

the drawing, the better offwe will all be. He prefers a hip roof and two windows together and two little

windows on the sides on the second fioor. Paired windows are a good feature and a stronger tie than four

Mr.Myers summarizes: What he is hearing is that ( 1)GC is Willing appropriate detailing and ( to entertain a hip roofwith probably preferred; 2)a small roofover the garage doors3) )(window patterning on the proposal is aterial on the new hip roofovegr-afa2g2«5§h=au§ld=be=me5t)w*e*need

VILLAGE PLANNER'S MEMO OF JUNE 7, 2001. MR. BURRISS SECONDED, AND THE

MOTION WAS APPROVED BY MAJORITY (MR. SALVAGE WAS RECUSED).

Mr. Wilkenfeld asked the Legal Advisor whether there was anything that could be done by

Village Council or us to prevent setting a precedent in the future. The Legal Advisor said short of

disapproving the application and prosecuting them, and that is about all you could do. Village Council

would have to do that. Punitive aspects have to come from Village Administration. More discussion

ensued on inspection and enforcement, and Mr. Dorman said he does do inspections. The Village did

issue a desist order on Dan Rogers to halt construction, but there was no further penalty.

Shurtz Management,204 Munson Street -Signs

Mr.Dorman said the application is for two existing signs at Lost and Found Treasures: ( 1)a metal

sign sayingP "rivate Property Tow Away Zonel,o"cated on the wall between the garage doors and 2( )a pole sign with the same wording,located north of the parking lot. This puts him over the allowable

number of signs,and a variance would have to be granted.

Mr. Parris asked whether the applicant expressed problems with people parking in that area,since

it would seem an obscure enough location to prevent parking there.

Mr. Wilkenfeld wondered why he couldn't have just one sign. Mr. Dorman said the shop is

temporarily closed and they might be trying to protect themselves.

Mr. Salvage wanted to table the application until the applicant could be present and MOVED TO

TABLE THIS SO THAT THE APPLICANT COULD BE HERE TO PRESENT HIS APPLICATION.

MR.PARRIS SECONDED,AND THE MOTION WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.

Rav Paprocki, Granville Antique Show -Sifins

Mr. Dorman stated the applicant wants to put up 6 small temporary signs and 3 larger banner signs

advertising the Antique Show at various locations. Mr. Paprocki stated that Betty Morrison requested the

signs at the IGA,the entrance to the high school,and various telephone poles. Signs would be up until

June 15. He said they put up identical signs last year. Also included would be 3 changeable copy signs.

Mr. Myers thought this is a lot of signs and does not want to give blanket approval for next year,

for fear of setting precedents,and Ms.Lucier thought this could be a warning as the last year for the big

yellow changeable copy signs and that they should move to banner signs.

Granville Planning Commission,5/29/ 01 2

Mr.Wilkenfeld wanted assurance the signs would be placed far enough back from the road so as

not to impede traffic

Jon Ravmond,Villate Coffee Shop, 132 East BroadwavC -hange ofUse and Sign

Mr.Dorman explained that the applicant is relocating the shop to half ofthe old Taylor's and

needs 1( )A change ofuse,and to relocate the business'cement tables;and 2()To install a window sign

and an existing sandwich board sign.

1)Consensus agreed with the Change of Use application

2)Mr.Raymond said the tables are 300-400 pounds each,sturdy,sealed,and decorative and would not

tip over in a storm,as plastic tables are likely to do at the current location. They would be placed so as

not to impede pedestrian traffic. Mr.Myers stated that Village Council must approve outdoor tables

yearly since they are in the right of way,and GPC can only make recommendations. Mr. Parris had a

problem with approving the tables outside in the winter,and Mr.Wilkenfeld was nervous about possible

emergency situations.Mr. Myers also was thinking about the aesthetics of the tables. Consensus preferred

temporary tables. Mr. Parris recommended heavy umbrellas and asked Mr.Raymond to consult with

Victoria's to see if there is a problem.

3)The 8 square foot sign on the window is painted and takes up little room. This sign was agreeable to

all.

4)The shop already has a sandwich board and they want to move it to the new location. Mr. Wilkenfeld

expressed reservations about a proliferation of sandwich board signs in the Village and thought one might

not be necessary on Broadway,but it was recognized that other businesses have them. The sign must not

interfere with the street ROW nor create a safety hazard for pedestrians. Mr. Myers wanted to deal with

sandwich boards in general later.

Greg Ream will take down the big red awning and Mr.Raymond will put up an awning later on

his half ofthe building;his wife,an artist,suggested black and red stripes. Mr.Myers thought that might

be all right as long as it is simple with broad stripes. We would need to see a fabric sample.

MR.SALVAGE MOVED TO APPROVE APPLICATION # 01-052 FOR A CHANGE OF USE FROM

Mr.Myers stated that the application is incomplete;lacking site plan,elevations and descriptions. Mr.Salvage disagreed and stated the site plan was partially presented earlier and d"idnt' think this is deal because it would look like the old school.M" r.Burriss said schools have always been a big community pride and he is not comfortable with approving this sources of certain things for applications and did as is. Mr.Parris added that we require Dorman not think the application should ever have gotten this far. Mr. said the two-story addition would be 29,110 square feet.

Vic Trevinko from MKC Associates said he has an expanded site plan from what was submitted originally,but Mr.Myers is still of the opinion that the application was incomplete when submitted.

Mr.Dorman said the condenser would be 12' from front of house,6'7-' from the south property line. The Board ofZoning and Building Appeals will need to grant a variance for the side yard setback at their meeting on June 14.

Ms. Sperling added that it is on a hill and the unit would be tucked in behind the deck. It won't be

seen from Main Street.

In answer to a concern by Mr. Burriss about screening,Ms. Sperling said she would use oak leaf hydrangeas,which met with great approval with the Commission.

2)fill in parking areas with gravel and raise to level of the shared driveway and add retaining wall, 3 ()

repair leaded glass windows and replace broken windows.

Jared Wilson asked what kind of retaining wall would be best,and Mr.Myers suggestedo "ne that

Mr.Parris reminded the applicant that the porta- pak unit was to be the same color as the second

floor,but now there is no second floor. Given the proposed location ofthe porta-pak unit,you will only

see the end,so he wanted it a similar color so it doesnt' look like a"trailer on a roof"

Mr.Dorman said the Board ofZoning and Building Appeals has already approved all variances.

Mr. Dorman stated that the applicant wants to refurbish the porch to make it conform to safety

codes. They will re-roof it with slate and replace windows. The porch railing will be raised. Jeff

Howell, contractor, brought in the sample spindles, new and old, which are similar, except that the new

one is 1' taller. They also want to replace the existing wooden doors with 6-pound aluminum doors with

the same look. It would be a direct replacement of three doors, and the existing storm doors will be left

alone. The windows will be painted the same color. The deck will have tongue and groove

construction. There will be new gutters and spouting. Paint color will be similar to what is there, and

Mr. Howell will bring in samples to show Mr. Dorman.

Albert Packer,225 Summit Street -Additions

Mr. Dorman stated the applicant wants to build an 864 square foot, one-story addition with a

basement and deck,and a covered porch will be added to the existing garage. The applicant will also

replace some doors and windows.

Mr. Packer said this is a small Gunnison house,which has a history,built after WW II. His intent

is to leave what you see from the street and add to the back. He will remove the existing aluminum

siding and replace it with 3"vinyl board,the material used in historical reproductions. You won't see the

joints. The existing rear porch will need to be demolished.

Mr. Burriss asked ifthe addition would stick out,and Mr. Packer said it would be 3' wider on the

east side.

New Business:

Mark J &ulie Zarbaugh.313 Spellman Street -New Garage

Mr. Dorman stated that the applicant is proposing to build a 26' x 26' garage, with a 6' x 12'

cutout that helps to break up some of the massing. The siding, trim and shutters are intended to match

the existing house. The garage will be replacing the existing 16' x 16' garage. The applicant is

proposing an octagon vent detail on both the front and back facades of the garage. Mr. Dorman pointed

out the octagon window on the applicant's house, which was approved by Planning Commission a

couple years ago, for which the vent details will simulate. The proposed garage will be 19';

approximately 5' taller than the existing garage and that is to account for the increased width of the new

garage.

Mr. Zarbaugh explained that a variance was needed for lot coverage and side and rear setbacks,

which he was approved for by the BZBA on April 12. He then stated that he would be utilizing two of '

the four footers from the existing garage,in fact he would be extending the south footer 10' to the east

and the west footer 10' to the north toward the street.

Mr. Burriss asked Mr. Zarbaugh to move the vent details down a little from where they are

proposed on the PowerPoint Presentation to give it a more comfortable fit.

BURRIS SECONDED, AND THE MOTION WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.

IGA,484 South Main Street R-ear Addition

GPC,April 23,2001 2- »

Mr.Dorman explained that there are two options for the IGA to proceed with their plans: ( 1)a

twos-toryaddition where the first fioorwould house a bakeryd/elmi/eat preparation are,the second story

would be office space and a portap-ak mechanical room would be next to it onthe north end,and ( 2)a

one-story addition with same services and the porta-pak mechanical room on the roofofthe first story.

The resulting footprint would increase from 28,975 square feet to 35,242 square feet in either case. The

consensus ofthe group preferred the two-story option.

The density and lot coverage maximums will be exceeded and will require a variance as will the

maximum single tenant or single use. The parking situation at present will not be addressed until the front

faade is proposed.

Mr. Ross and Laura Andujar explained to the Commission the details oftheir plans,saying the

second floor will remain empty for now.

Mr. Parris asked about the appearance and height ofthe second story from the front ofthe store

and was told it would show from the front.

Mr. Wilkenfeld asked whether Boxes and Bows had a second exit,and Mr.Ross said they would

be adding one.

Mr. Myers asked about the material ofthe addition and was told it is plain block. He also

wondered why they need the second-floor shell and was told it would be easier now since they will need

more space in the future. Ms. Andujar said that according to the code and regarding new construction and

substantial improvements the addition could not exceed 50%ofthe appraised value ofthe store for flood

insurance purposes. But this is the purview ofthe insurance company,not the GPC. Mr. Dorman thought

the IGA might be able to get a variance from our Flood Hazard Overlay District from BZBA,but we have

no control over FEMA.

Greg Ross said another option was to raise the fjoor level above fjood level,but that would not

work,and Mr.Dorman mentioned floodproofing one foot above flood level,which would also not work

for the IGA.

Mr. Myers thought it would be awkward for GPC to act on this application prior to its being

censidered by BZBA for the variances.

7 j„i*us,,Mr.20S :as*ked about whether the structure that looks like a trailer would be screened from the

>v- street. He wondered whether they could carry the front fagade across and wrap around the side without

having to cover up the whole side. This should be painted to match the building. This will be very

visible from Main Street. In this way the applicants would have a stronger presentation.

The applicant decided to go to BZBA and get variance first and asked the Planning Commission

to table the application.

MR. WILKENFELD MOVED TO TABLE APPLICATION0 #1-034 AT THE REQUEST OF THE

APPLICANT. MR. PARRIS SECONDED, AND THE MOTION WAS UNANIMOUSLY

APPROVED.

The Jerry McLain Co.2,03 Cherry StreetW - indowA &ir Conditioner

Mr. Dorman stated that the applicant is proposing to install an additional second story window

that will match the other 2 that are already there, and the second part of the application is to install an

air conditioner unit on the south side of the house. Mr. Noblick was on hand to answer any questions.

Mr. Burriss asked about the relationship of the proposed window to the existing ones and Mr.

I ri

GPC,April 23,2001 3

Noblick, draftsmen, said they tried to center it under one bracket whereas the other two brackets. Ms. Cochrane, two are centered on owner, added that the existing windows on the first floor do not necessarily match up either. Mr. Noblick was asked about screening the air conditioner and he mentioned that John Klauder would add landscaping later.

MR. WILKENFELD MOVED TO APPROVE APPLICATION # 01-038 WITH THE CONDITION

THAT THE AIR CONDITIONING UNIT BE SCREENED BY APPROPRIATE VEGETATION.

MR. BURRISS SECONDED, AND THE MOTION WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.

Helmut E &velyne Poelzing, 126 West Elm Street A-dditions

This application was tabled at the last meeting.

MR. PARISS MOVED TO TAKE APPLICATION # 01-028 OFF THE TABLE FOR

CONSIDERATION. MR. WILKENFELD SECONDED, AND THE MOTION WAS

UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.

In review, Mr. Dorman explained the revised project, consisting of a number of additions:

1) Eliminate screen porch and expand sunroom on north side of the house

2) Expand dining room including a bay window on west side of the house

3) Add a detached one-car garage on east side of the house farther to the rear

4) Expand front porch to full width of the house

5) Build a small arbor on west side of the house

Mrs. Poelzing stated that two pine trees and a stump would have to be removed if garage is

located 43' from the sidewalk, but only moving it 38' from the sidewalk would result in losing only one

tree. Mr. Myers thought the trees would probably die anyway from the excavating and construction.

On April 12, the applicant received a variance from the BZBA, for the side yard setback.

Mr. Burriss added some suggestions for the roof, gable vs. hip, in order to gain greater

difference from garage; it would also define the front elevation in a stronger way. The separation needs

to be strong. It also breaks up the roof'line. He said to extend the overhang out. He asked for details

on bay window roof and Mrs. Poelzing said they are yet to be defined. He said in order for GPC to

approve design elements, we need details about roofing materials and style. ·She thought it would be

relatively flat, mot likely a 45 ° angle.

Ms. Lucier asked about the windows on the rear and is there anything to be gained by having

them match the others, and Mrs. Poelzing said they are just old windows.

Mr. Burris asked about the bay window, and Mrs. Poelzing said it was not original to the house.

Mr. Wilkenfeld asked about plantings between the two driveways, and Mrs. Poelzing said it

would be done in flowers. Mr. Myers recommended oak leaf hydrangea. The garage door will be

wood with panels. The applicant described the latticed arbor in detail. It will have no fencing.

Mr. Burriss thanked the applicant for her hard work on redesigning the project following our

last meeting, and Mrs. Poelzing said she appreciated GPC's suggestions.

Work Session:

Zoning Code 1-Village Heritage Overlay District.

Chapter 1133.

Mr. Myers thought the Purpose might be too narrow for the entire code,although it is good for

architectural review. Mr. Wilkenfeld would like to see us put as much legal teeth into this as possible

Translate this into zoning code issues. We need to look at doing something ofreal significance here. He

reported that Rob Drake had said we have a right as a community to put in the toughest laws we can. Mr.

Wilkenfeld wanted to make this as good as possible. He does not think we are going to accomplish that

tonight,but we could strive for these things.

Mr. Parris thought the Purpose statement has to be rather broad based and the law has to be in the

rest of the code

Mr. Myers wondered how tough the code should be. Will we different opinions than the

community. We have to be careful about architectural statements and adding things about planning.

Members only had time to review the Purpose statement tonight,and another session will be

devoted to more ofthe code.

Comments for the Good of the Order: It was determined that it is the responsibility of Mr. Dorman,

the Village Planner, to set the agenda for meetings. When members are approached about being placed

on the agenda, they should be referred to the Village Planner. If a hardship occurs in a time crunch,

Mr. Dorman can tell the applicant that he will have to poll GPC members to see whether the applicant

should be added to the agenda.

New Business:

Ilkka Aro, 335 Summit Street -Addition

Mr. Dorman stated that the applicant wants to add a master bedroom suite of 415 square feet on

the east side of the house. No variances are necessary. Mr. Aro added that they have two bedrooms and

want to add another,preferring to remain there while their child is in school nearby. New windows will

match the existing ones.

Mr. Salvage stated that these are great drawings, and Mr. Myers complimented the applicant on

the nice application.

MR. SALVAGE MOVED TO APPROVE APPLICATION AS SUBMITTED; MR. BURRIS

Denison University - Signs

Art Chonko described the plans for various construction and informational signs to be placed

around campus, including those at entrances on North Pearl,Burg Street, and Main.

Signs will go up and down depending on when the work is to be completed. They will combine signs

wherever they can, but some have different removal dates. The bigger informational sign at Main will

remain up until the end of the project, around May 2003. The sign on Burg will hold changeable

informational signs directing people to proper destinations. None of the signs will be lit.

Mr. Wilkenfeld wanted assurances that none of these signs would interfere with automobile

visibility.

Mr. Salvage asked whether the signs fit within the code, and Mr. Dorman replied yes, the big

sign is larger than code, but GPC has authority to approve the size for temporary signs not otherwise

listed in the code.

Mr. Salvage said the contractor signs probably could not be combined, but they should be of

similar colors and side by side, with each having its own logo.

Mr. Myers summarized that on the Pearl Street sign, we want no interference with traffic

visibility. The construction sign should be the same size, black and white with personal logos, which

remain up for the duration of the project.

MR. SALVAGE MOVED TO APPROVE APPLICATION0 #10-27, SUBJECT TO THE

HelmutE &velyne Poetzing, 126 West Elm Street M- ajor renovations

Mr. Dorman explained the project, consisting of a number of renovations:

1)Expand sunroom

2)Expand dining room

3) Remove part of front porch and add an attached one-car garage

4) Expand front porch to full width of house

5) Build an arbor on east and remove existing concrete

Mrs. Poelzing explained that they just bought the house for their retirement and wish to make it

larger.

Mr. Wilkenfeld stated that this is a historic house in a historic area. In the past similar requests

for modern garages on historic houses have been denied

Mr. Parris asked whether there would be parking in the existing driveway under the arbor, and

Mrs. Poelzing said there is parking there now.

Mr. Myers asked whether they would remove the driveway, and she said all the area will be

replaced with brick in front and flowers in the rear. There is room for one car there. Brick will replace

existing concrete. On the west there will be a new driveway in brick, identical to the other side so the

house has balance.

Mr. Parris asked whether she would be willing to address the look of the garage door and roof

somewhat to make more of a carriage house look, and Mr. Wilkenfeld added that the plans go from one

side of the lot to the other so there is a massing problem. Mrs. Poelzing said the neighbor's house is

far away.

Mr. Myers asked about setbacks and Mr. Dorman said they are OK on the west but the east

plans would require a setback variance. Other requirements are met. Mr. Myers added that (1)on a

66' lot, two curb cuts is a potential problem and breaks rhythm of the street. 2 ( ) S"nout"houses with

garages jutting out before front facades are a challenge and would not be good in this historic

neighborhood. He suggested making the porch smaller. He would have a problem approving this

application and suggested she find a way to use the existing garage. Extending the porch and putting

the garage on the west side is going to be difficult for us to accept in a historic district. He suggested

moving it to the back on the east side to save the integrity of appearance. He also suggested moving the

arbor to the west side in line with house and connected to it. There is already green space there.

Mr. Burris asked about the bay window, and Mrs. Poelzing said it was not original to the house.

Mr. Burris said he is sympathetic to her needs, as far as space is concerned, but wants to help her with

some architectural details to make the addition feel like it belongs with the house. Other homes in this

r-

GPC,4/9/01, 3

area maintain architectural integrity, and there are ways to achieve what you want in a slightly different

language. We would be glad to look at other plans, or we could plan a work session.

Mrs. Poelzing said the windows will not change, and you will have the same feeling of the house as now.

Mr. Burriss said the house is a nice rectangle and that's a strong character. Putting the porch all

the way across makes it uncharacteristically horizontal. The walls are vertical on one plane and a

change would bother him. Consistency is important.

MR. WILKENFELD MOVED TO TABLE APPLICATION # 01-028, WITH THE APPLICANT'S

AGREEMENT. MR. SALVAGE SECONDED, AND IT WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.

Old Business:

Taylor's Drug Store, 200 East Broadway

Greg Ream stated there would be a step down between the drug store and the bank on the north

side. The initial plan did not take the grade change into account, and they need to accommodate

rainwater runoff. It's about a 36"drop. They want to step it down and meld the two properties into

one, and remove the retaining wall. Plantings will be added

t Mr. Burriss asked whether the step could be a pedestrian walkway, but Mr. Ream said it would

be pretty steep for walking.

MR. SALVAGE MOVED THAT THIS IS A MINOR MODIFICATION; MR. WILKENFELD

SECONDED, AND THIS WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.

Mr. Ream reported that Mr. Siegel from the Tree and Landscape Committee said it was foolish

to put in another tree to replace the one being removed because of the width of the bed. He said the

bed was choking the tree because it's bigger around than is logical for a tree of that height. They could

add other trees later. Mr. Myers prefers deciduous trees, i.e.,maple or ash trees.

Mr. Ream explained about curbs and drainage. He said the width for plantings is 5' curb to

curb.

Mr. Burris prefers: (1)a neat definition in the parking lot and (2)as much space for plantings as

AND IT WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.

GPC,4/9/01, 4

Mr. Dorman said that change would-have to be reviewed and approved by the Tree and

Landscape Commission,but Mr. Myers said GPC could approve them, especially with his own

certification. Mr. Salvage said he believed that the Tree and Landscape Commission was a subcommission

of the Planning Commission and asked Mr. Dorman to verify that.

Work Session:

Debra Troutman,205 South Pearl St.

Mrs. Troutman brought in color samples for an exterior painting project. Most of the planned

projects are maintenance only, but the shutters created some discussion. Mr. Burriss said space is

needed between the shutters for siding to be exposed. On the first floor there is a light and the

applicants should not get too close to it. Protect the bay and picture window, but shutters probably

would not be needed there anyway. The GPC encourages shutters that look like they could close in

order to be the right scale. The window at the side entry probably should be shuttered. Windows on

the rear probably would not be shuttered. Functional shutters, in their day, would not allow trim to

show when open.

Mr. Salvage does not think GPC approval is required for the maintenance projects they have in

mind, but she should probably bring in plans for patio and shutters. Mr. Myers said they would like to

see drawings with sizes, spacing, etc.

Mr. Burriss said shutters must be to scale. Originally shutters would have been louvered rather

than paneled but we willlook at either. Panels were used earlier as a defensive system, and not every

window needs a shutter.

Certified Oil, S. Main Street

Mr. Furr reviewed discussion from the last work session: 1()lot coverage,which will stay the

same except if they shared space with IGA; 2()for signs,they proposed brick columns,which is yet to be

resolved;3 ()building desigsindin-g material will not be clapboard because it is not economically

feasible,so the building will be brick;4 ()parking has not been changed;5 ()for landscaping,low-profile

shrubs will be in front;6 ()for lighting, they want a flat lens with no glare.

Issues still to be resolved are (1)easement from IGA. They need to avoid stacking and will recurve

the lines;2 ()signage;3 ()curb cuts;4 ()traffic flowpeo-ple should not have to drive into the IGA

to get gas.

Mr. Burriss asked about the roof overhang and was told there is a 1' overhang outside the gutter.

Siding will be brick. Mr. Burriss suggested dormer-type vents across the back and front. He would like

to see the transom detail on the windows. A coping on the roof would breakup the massing and allow for

another color.

Mr. Myers asked whether there were any problems with the plans Greg Ross of IGA shared with

Certified. and there is no problem. There will be a sidewalk and lots of green space and 59%lot

coverage.

Mr. Myers asked whether a diesel pump was necessary,out in the middle by itself,and Mr. Furr

agreed to incorporate it with the other gas pumps. Certified does not want to attract semi truck traffic,

however Mr. Furr fears that a gasoline customer will get impatient while waiting for a truck to fill up with

diesel.

Regarding the canopy,Mr. Burriss stated that a good column has a base and capital, but Mr. Furr

thought that would be hard to do and they would have to work around the gutters.

New Business:

First Presbyterian Church.110 W.Broadway.Widen Roadway

Mr. Burriss recused himself from this hearing.}

Mr. Dorman stated that as you recall at the November 27, 2000 Planning Commission meeting

you heard an application from Robertson Construction ( for the First Presbyterian Church)to approve

the as-built width of Locust Place, in the area of the 3 parking spaces, at 15'.At that meeting Planning

Commission did not approve the application. Robertson Construction ( for the church)is back tonight.

There has been an agreement reached with the neighboring property owners to widen Locust Place to

16' from the Village sidewalk to the existing No Parking sign, which is approximately 70' to the north.

Dan Stevens explained that there will be a 6"curb, and they will remove the sidewalk.

Ms. Lucier asked whether this was consistent with the appeal ruling that Village Council made,

and the answer was yes.

Bob Seith said this is a good faith effort to resolve the problem, and we need to do it and get on

with it.

MR. WILKENFELD MOVED TO APPROVE # 01-020 TO WIDEN LOCUST PLACE. MR.

SALVAGE SECONDED, AND IT WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.

Granville Thrift Shop. 454 S.Main Street -Sign

Mr. Dorman explained that the applicant would like to relocate an existing wall sign that was

installed at the old thrift shop building and move it to the new thrift shop building located at 454 South

Main Street. He directed Planning Commission's attention to the photos enclosed in the packet as to

where the sign is located and what it looks like.

MR. WILKENFELD MOVED TO APPROVE APPLICATION0 #1-021 AS PROPOSED. MR.

PARRIS SECONDED, AND IT WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.

Work Session with Concorde Capital Corporation:

Mr. Dorman said that Joe and Larke Recchie wish to develop the Reese property across from

1

GPC,3401,*2

Fackler's on Granville Road,dedicatingthe front area for school space,or other civic use,and the rear

area on theS *hssid;eottheva-Hey for an independent living community.Mr.Recchie explained that he

has not yet purchased the property but thatthis is his plan and not the plan ofthe current owners. The

development will consider carefully the schools'needs,the terrain and valley,the neighbors,and

economic issues.

A. If it works out as an appropriate location for a school site,it would logically be on the road

frontage. They are not involved in any current debate on school locations or about

dedicating the space for some time in the future. The School Superintendent has expressed

interest in the site.

B. The remainder of the property would be for senior living. Considerations include

protecting the scenic views,as well as preservation of open space.

Mr. Myers asked for details about the senior living,and Mr. Recchie said it would be a senior

campus with: 1()a congregate building;2 ()ranchs-tyle cluster structures in a campus setting with a

combination of rental units and ownership;3 ()They see significant potential for the intergenerational

interaction and volunteerism for seniors and students at the school and students at the center,and; ( 4)

They would protect the pristine environmental aspects of the area.

The group discussed the following issues: 1)Road access to the facility i(.e.,Cherry Valley

Road,Milner Road,etc.a)n,d 2)Zoning restrictions i(.e.c,urrently zoning on a 92 acre parcel would

allow for 92 units).

Planning Commission told the Recchies that for the next work session they would like to see a

rough sketch of the site layout.

Work Session with Granville Ross IGA:

Laura AndujarR (obertson Construction)and Greg RossR (oss IGA)were there to present the

elevations for the proposed two-story rear addition to the Ross IGA, and to receive input from the

Planning Commission.

The drawings and elevations were discussed for a while and Planning Commission seemed to be

satisfied with what was being proposed. Discussion then turned to the front elevation,where the site

plan for the front and rear were discussed in great length, including the possibility of installing a

sidewalk from the existing sidewalk running parallel to South Main Street to the proposed front

entrance to the IGA. Thoughts turned to how Certified Oil could work a connection to the IGA

sidewalk through their property down to the South Main sidewalk. This possibility will be presented to

Certified at their April 9,2001 work session with Planning Commission. Other issues discussed

included parking both in the front and rear,as well as a lighting plan for the site.

Old Business:

Granville School District.248 New Burg Street - Temporary Contractors'Informational Sign

Mr. Dorman stated that the application was tabled at the last meeting. Essentially this is now a

sign application for a project identification sign and a construction traffic sign at the high school and

middle school. The construction traffic sign would be 6'tall x 4' wide and the project identification

sign would be 8' long x 4'tall.

Mr. Wilkenfeld suggested making the green darker, and Mr. Reash said it would actually be

black. The letters will be blue on white,and the red line in the picture will be black. Mr. Wilkenfeld

appreciated Quandel's willingness to cooperate, and Mr. Reash appreciated working with the GPC as

well.

MR. WILKENFELD MOVED TO TAKE APPLICATION 01-011 OFF THE TABLE. MR.

PARRIS SECONDED, AND IT WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.

MR. WILKENFELD MOVED TO APPROVE APPLICATION 0 #10-11 WITH 2 SIGNS.

New Business:

Robert Seith.116 Locust Place -Fence

Mr. Dorman explained that proposed project is to replace the existing 42"picket fence with a

42"board fence. The board fence will be similar to the fence recently installed at 134 North Pearl

Street and will be done by the same contractor. The spacing between the boards will be exactly the

same as 134 North Pearl Street at 2 1/ 6".Mr. Seith added that he has been patching the existing fence

for 10 years and it is pretty shaky.

Mr. Wilkenfeld asked if he was going to paint it, and Mr. Seith said yes and that his house has

got to have a white fence around it.

GPC,3/12/ 01,2

OF THE FENCE AT 116 LOCUST WITH THE STIPULATION THAT THE FENCE BE PAINTED

WHITE. MR. WILKENFELD SECONDED,AND IT WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.

Welsh Hills School.2610 Granville Road -Temporary Sign

Mr. Parris said he had to recuse himself from this application because he is presenting it. Mr.

Wilkenfeld suggested Mr. Dorman present it so that Mr. Parris could vote, and that was deemed

appropriate.}

Mr. Dorman said this is atemporary double-sided ground sign in the TCOD and will be 18'

from edge of pavement. A variance is requested because the sign is 12 square feet and the maximum is

10, and for allowable number of signs and allowable sign area.

Mr. Salvage applied the criteria for variance to the application:

A.That special circumstances or conditions exist which are peculiar to the land or structures(s)

involved and which are not applicable to other lands or structures in the same zoning districts.

The special condition is that this is an event sign that is certainly unique to that facility.

B. That a literal interpretation of the provisions of this Zoning Ordinance would deprive the

applicants of rights commonly enjoyed by other properties in the same zoning district under the

provisions of this Ordinance.As a general rule we grant variances for this kind of thing and a literal

interpretation would prevent the Planning Commission from acting in a way that is consistent with

actions in the past.

C. That the special conditions and circumstances does not result from the actions of the

applicant. We have consistently found that the sign code is a special condition that is not brought on

by the actions of the applicant and at times places an undue burden particularly on a facility of this size.

D. That the granting of the variance will not confer on the applicant any undue privilege that is

denied by this Ordinance to other lands or structures in the same zoning district. As a general rule

we grant variances for this kind of thing and a literal interpretation would prevent the Planning

Commission from acting in a way that is consistent with actions in the past.

E. That the granting of the variance will in no other manner adversely affect the health,safety

and general welfare of the persons residing or working within the vicinity of the proposed

variance. True.

Mr. Salvage said that to deny this sign would be treating the applicant differently from any

other applicant asking for a temporary sign for fund-raising events of a public nature. His personal

feeling is that we have to be consistent with past rulings, and the others agreed.

MR. WILKENFELD MOVED TO GRANT A VARIANCE FOR THE TEMPORARY SIGN

IN APPLICATION # 01-014 FOR THE WELSH HILLS SCHOOL BASED ON 1147.03. IT IS A

TEMPORARY EVENT SIGN SIMILAR TO OTHERS THAT WE HAVE GRANTED IN THE PAST.

THIS IS IN AN INSTITUTIONAL AREA AND THEREFORE NEEDS CERTAIN

CONSIDERATIONS, AND WILL HAVE NO ILL EFFECT ON THE HEALTH, WELL-BEING OR

WELFARE OF THE COMMUNITY. MR. SALVAGE SECONDED, AND IT WAS

UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.

MR. WILKENFELD MOVED TO APPROVE APPLICATION # 01-014 AS PRESENTED.

MR. SALVAGE SECONDED, AND IT WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.

Work Session on Denison's Construction Projects:

Seth Patton and Art Chonko wanted us to be aware of projects that were being started in 2001.

1

t'. GPC,3/12/ 01,3

They want a campus commons where most of the activity would be behind Slayter. Burg Street will

have to be moved but not in the near future. Mr. Chonko said they have received funding to build the

Burton Morgan and Life Science buildings with an underground parking lot to be located under the

campus commons. They will redesign the road around Olin and provide a new entrance to Burg.

Slayter will be remodeled later, and the existing Life Science will be upgraded.

Mr. Wilkenfeld asked about trees being cut down, and Mr. Chonko said they will save all they

can but they need to dig far enough to get a proper slope, likely 40' down. All the digging will be done

at once. Trees are to be milled, and they will replant trees later.

Mr. Parris asked about what permits they needed to harvest the trees, and Mr. Chonko said

none,but they will come before GPC again to get approval for the buildings and commons project. The

first step after cutting down trees is to relocate utilities underground if possible. Construction will

begin in May, and they want to be up and running by Fall of 2003.

The representatives explained what departments would be housed in the new buildings,

particularly those now in Knapp. Offices in Colwell will be moved as well as current tenants on 4th

floor Slayter. Mr. Wilkenfeld noted that one of the reasons Granville is so nice is because of the

college and was glad the road will be reopened. He thinks it's a wonderful plan but wondered what

the hillside would look like, and hoped it would not look unnatural, and Mr. Chonko said it would not.

Mr. Parris hoped they would not cover up the existing attractive buildings.

Mr. Salvage recommended doing something about the narrow brick part of Burg, and Mr.

Patton said there was an idea ten years ago to shave some of the hill and that may still be possible.

Mr. Patton stated Mr. Hickman is most interested in knowing about parking, landscaping and

stornn sewer.

Mr. Salvage thinks it looks terrific and would be a dramatic use of space.

The timetable is to finish cutting trees now, move utilities in April, and reconnect steam lines

before students return this fall, then begin construction. They hope to be done by Fall 2003. The area

will be fenced off with a construction entrance and no parking will be allowed behind Slayter.

New Business:

Jim Jenkins.464 South Main Street - Projecting Sign

Mr. Dorman introduced the application stating that the request is for a projecting sign at 464

South Main Street. The sign will be installed over the door where an existing night-light is located.

The sign would be 25"x 46"m,ade of lexan, blue and red lettering. The cabinet would be 8"thick

extruded aluminum with internal fluorescent lighting. The sign will be installed approximately 9' above

the business door using a2"steel bracket with horizontal guy bracing. Added to the application is a 1'

x 1' sign on the rear entrance door that says J"enkins Automotive EmployeesD &eliveries Only."

Mr. Jenkins said I would like to make one change to Mr. Dorman's presentation; I really want

all the lettering to be blue. As to the sign on the rear, I put it up, not even thinking of it as a sign,

because people were coming in that way where the mechanics are and I don't want that going on.

Mr. Salvage said, I don't think we are allowing internally lit Signs anymore, and Mr. Myers

said no, and I think that is consistent with the sign code. Mr. Myers reiterated that this is a plastic sign

lit from behind and these are not typically received as favorably as other types of illumination (i.e.,

externally lit signs).We would be more comfortable if we did not have an internally lit sign, and Mr.

Jenkins said that is not a problem, so you would recommend just a board sign with lights shining on it,

and Mr. Myers said that is generally what we have approved in the past.

Mr. Parris asked Mr. Jenkins if he operates during very many hours where it would be dark,

and Mr. Jenkins said this time of year we are open until six o'clock, but the lighted sign would

basically serve as a door marker.

Mr. Myers asked if the existing light above the door is going to stay, and Mr. Jenkins said no.

MR. SALVAGE MOVED TO APPROVE APPLICATION0 #1-008, SUBJECT TO THE

FOLLOWING CONDITIONS: ( 1)THAT ALL THE LETTERING BE BLUE AS INDICATED ON

THE T"IRE AND ALIGNMENT"ON THE SUBMITrED COLOR RENDERING,2 ()THAT THE

SIGN BE EXTERNALLY ILLUMINATED,WITH THE OPTION THAT THE APPLICANT CAN

CHANGE FROM THE LEXAN PANEL TO ANY SOLIDMATERIAL, AND (3)THAT WE ADD

TO THE APPLICATION, APPROVAL FOR THE EXISTING 1' X 1' EMPLOYEES AND

DELIVERIES ONLY SIGN ON THE BACK DOOR. MR. WILKENFELD SECONDED, AND IT

WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.

2/26/ 01-Granville Planning Commission -2 -,

Brian Sutliff.110 East ElmSt. T-enant Panel andWall Mounted Sign

Mr.Dorman introduced the project. The first proposed sign is a tenant panel sign to be placed

in an existing ground sign approved by Planning Commission in 1995. The sign will be 3.34 square

feet,wooden with a white background and gold and black lettering. The second sign would be a wall

sign to be placed next to the door on the second floor. The sign would be 18"wide x 6"tall,installed

4'6"offthe grounda (s measured from the second floor grade)I.t would be a plastic sign with a white

background and black lettering.

Mr. Wilkenfeld said he wanted Mr. Dorman to clarify the variance request;was there a

variance approved for the sign for the previous tenant. Mr. Dorman said he believed so,and that

because there are multiple tenants at all times,there must have been variances granted in the past. Mr.

Myers said he recalled that Planning Commission granted variances for those. Mr. Salvage said he

believed that the proposed signs are simply replacements.

MR. SALVAGE MOVED TO APPROVE APPLICATION0 #10-09 AS SUBMITTED. MR. PARRIS

SECONDED,AND IT WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.

Granville School District,248 New Burg Street T-emporary ContractorsIn'/formational Sign

Mr. Dorman introduced the application for several temporary contractors'/ informational signs

to be installed at the high school and middle school during the construction period. Sign # 1: A "i.

shaped"sign consisting of (2)32-square foot panels. Each panel will have a white background with a

black border and the blue Quandel logo in the center. The rest of the lettering will be black, and this

sign will be installed somewhere between the High School and Middle School. Sign 2#: A ground sign

to be 8' long x 2'tall with a white background and black border,Quandel logo on left and a black

arrow on the right. The sign will be installed on the west half of the High School front lawn. Sign # 3:

A ground sign to be 4'long x 3' tall with similar colors to the other signs, and will be installed next to

Sign # 2.

Mr. Reash explained that this signage package is what they usually do. The signs are all

important for safety reasons,and they are willing'to be flexible on sign measurements. There may be

other temporary signs for traffic and construction trucks and they will return to GPC for approval of

those later. There will be a temporary roadway for construction trucks next to the existing asphalt.

Mr. Salvage added that there will be a fence all the way to New Burg, and no pedestrian traffic

will be allowed. Signs will be behind the 6'- 8' chain link fence.

Ms. Lucier asked whether Sign # 1 could be (1)two-sided panel rather than V-shaped, and

consensus agreed with her. Mr. Reash said this would be fine.

Mr. Myers said he wanted to discuss Sign 2#and 3#. He said Sign 2#is too big for a

construction entrance,especially when combined with Sign # 3. Logos are not permitted in the code,

and the contractor thought they could eliminate the logos. These two are to separate construction traffic

from visitors' traffic. Mr. Myers thought it would be more appropriate to have directional arrows at a

point where the roads diverge, rather than together at the entrance. Mr. Reash thought the second sign

could be installed at a later date

A fourth sign not introduced by Mr. Dorman is a project identification sign to show general

information and to give contractors some publicity. Mr. Myers thought it was too big and would like to

see all these signs combined.

Mr. Wilkenfeld wanted all signs in one location, and Mr. Myers suggested making 1()and 2( )

smaller and pushing them together to make a square. Put the fourth sign out in the yard. Sign ( 3)will

go somewhere else when needed. Mr. Parris did not think the information about the school is

necessary on Sign ( 4).

Mr. Reash wanted to develop some new drawings, and agreed to table the application for the

time being.

MR. SALVAGE MOVED TO TABLE APPLICATION0 #1-011 PENDING THE RECEIPT OF

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION FROM THE APPLICANT. MR. WILKENFELD SECONDED, AND IT WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.

Work Session on Certified Oil, 466 South Main St.

Andy Furr and Don Glenn presented their preliminary site layout for renovating the gas station and store in keeping with other improvements in the area. The first page of their packet is a preliminary site layout. The next pages are the elevations for the proposed brick building, similar to the building put up in the historic district of Wellington, Ohio. Certified would be flexible on the color

of the brick, the pediment on the front fagade would have a Certified sign. The canopy would have a faux roofline similar to the roofline on the building itself. Mr. Dorman showed the Commission

pictures from a Certified in Hilliard, and consensus seemed to like the look of that building better,

although Mr. Furr said unfortunately it is a bigger building than what would fit on the lot in Granville.

Mr. Myers suggested that Mr. Furr try to retrofit the style of the Hilliard building onto the proposed

footprint for the Granville site.

Some of the issues relative to variances from the code were addressed such as parking, which

Mr. Myers said that the previous law director had determined that each space at the pump constituted a

parking space. Mr. Salvage had been going through the Suburban Business District chapter of the

zoning code, which is the zoning district for the Certified property, and said that the code no longer

specifies a minimum parking requirement, only a maximum number of parking spaces. One issue

raised was lot coverage and it was determined that although a variance was needed the proposed plan

has less lot coverage than what currently exists on the lot.

The other sign proposed is a brick monument sign that would advertise pump prices for three

grades of gasoline. Mr. Myers made the following suggestions/ observations: ( 1)To install,a 3' hedge

along the entire front property line to cut the view of the cars on the lot, and submit a landscaping plan;

2)General cleanu-p is necessary;3 ()Lot coverage needs a variance;4 ()To remember the building

density maximum of 5,000 gross square, feet per acre;5 ()Parking goes on the side; 6 ()Roofline should

be a 8/12 minimum pitch;7 ()Lighting plan required;8 ()Sign to be externally lit.

Review of updated changes to zoning code to be discussed at the next meeting.

Mr. Dorman introduced this and explained that in November 2000 the Commission met to

discuss the proposed Ordinance to replace TCOD with the new Village Heritage Overlay District and

amend the Architectural Review Overlay District. As you look through the changes, the bolded items

are new and the items crossed out are being removed. There was a purpose statement the Commission

liked that I worked into Chapter 1133. In addition, as I went through the Chapters, I made some

grammatical and verbiage changes that I thought were appropriate and those are bolded as well.

Mr. Myers said to clarify; you are restating the purpose in Chapter 1133, and Mr. Dorman

replied that actually the Chapter calls for a Purpose In&terpretation section, which has the

interpretation statement but does not have the purpose statement.

Mr. Dorman noted that a newer version of the book " Buildings of Main Street"listed in the

ReferencesA &dvisors sections has been purchased. Mr. Salvage suggested putting these in the public

library, which Mr. Dorman said he intended to do. Also, he noted that the third reference was a

preservation brief he obtained from the National Park Service website.

Mr. Myers said that I object to nothing you have done here, in the interest of moving something

along, however there are other things here that we are sort of band-aiding right now. For example,

what we review and the criteria for our decisions, in 1161. 06 are real general. Particularly when you

handle things like building massing, for example the garage issue,we have trouble defining massing

and describing it to someone. Use of details is so generic. Mr. Wilkenfeld interjected, that is what he

means by the code having no teeth. Mr. Myers said you could look at this two ways. For this group

2/26/ 01-Granville Planning Commission - 4

the code we have now is fine,but we have to look into the future and develop a code that will be

clearer.The new code for all of Downtown Columbus is six pages,and it works because the

Commission works so well together. What I am saying is this is fine for now,but I would still like to

get into it and clarify some of this.

Mr. Salvage asked Mr. Dorman to get all Commission members a copy of the Architectural &

Design Standards for the City of Hudson.

Mr. Wilkenfeld mentioned that in some Chapters of the code,where the requirements are in

chart form that it is so much easier to read,and maybe that could be done for Chapter 1161.

Finally,Mr. Myers said that if we want to advance with this we should get Mr. Burriss'

comments especially on the architectural part,and he suggested holding this work session over into the

next meeting.

Welcome to Granville signs.

Mr. Myers showed the Commission the final drawings,and they instructed Mr. Dorman to get

a sign company to draw the final detailed drawings.

The group discussed the color of the signs, and Mr. Myers suggested green posts with a white

sign but Mr. Salvage likes white on green. The Beautification Committee has also has an opinion on

coloring. Mr. Parris noted that a white sign would get dirty fast. Finally,Mr. Myers reiterated that

the drawings should be done with both color scenarios and color can be determined later.

New Business:

Walter Palawsky. 202 East Elm Street E -xterior Renovations

The applicant wishes to begin exterior renovations, and Mr. Dorman introduced them in a

PowerPoint presentation: 1( )Remove exterior door on east side elevation;2 ()Change gutters and

downspouts;3 ()Replacem/ odify brick patio; 4()Reinstall original shutters;5 ()Remove screening on

Elm Street side porch, restoring to original condition;6 ()Install white picket fence running east to

west, on the north lot line.

Mr. Parris asked if the fencing will be all vinyl or just the posts, and Mr. Palawsky said all

vinyl, and as Mr. Dorman's presentation showed, the neighbor's fence is a pretty accurate

representation of what it will look like.

Mr. Salvage asked if the door would be removed all together, and Mr. Palawsky said the one

on the north side o( f the east elevationt)h,at is correct.

Mr. Parris asked if there are two doors on the Elm Street side porch, and Mr. Palawsky said

just one, and Mr. Parris replied so that will be the main entrance.

Mr. Parris then said having looked at the structure this morning some of the windows are pretty

close together, is there room to put shutters on all the windows?Mr. Palawsky said no, that I will put

them up wherever they look right, and I am trying for symmetry and balance.

Mr. Wilkenfeld asked Mr. Palawsky to explain what is being done with the brick patio and he

did.

Mr. Parris said that it appears, with the way the blocks are under the supporting structures

porch on the east elevation)th,at originally there was a wood porch there and somebody tore it out.

He then asked if there are any plans to change the look of the slab, and Mr. Palawsky said actually I am

going to put the wood porch back, so it will look like the porch on Elm Street and then flow into the

brick between the driveway and the porch.

Mr. Wilkenfeld clarified that the fence ( on the north lot line)will run parallel to the van in the

picture in Mr. Dorman's presentation, and Mr. Palawsky said yes, exactly.

Work Session on Granville Christian AcademyG (race Haven):

Celeste Stevenson explained the school's plans to expand with one or two modular classrooms

because they have run out of space at the school. They are turning students away now,and eventually

they will build a new school on a new location. The area indicated for the modular classrooms was

originally reserved for a two-story addition,but the modular classrooms will be one story with no

bathroom facilities and connected to the present school facilities. Currently there is a 3.5-foot mound

with pine trees between the Village Green and us. One modular unit 6(0'x24w')ould house 48 students

in two classrooms,and two ( 60'x57') would house 96 students in four classrooms. The modular units

are just like the ones currently used by Granville Schools. They are state approved commercial

structures,that meet all building codes,are 5B construction,Use Group E and ADA accessible,with a

height range from 12'8"to 13'6"depending on the roof pitch. Some of the aesthetics include a

permanent foundation with skirting,white siding to match the church building,exterior decking and the

units will have gutters and downspouts. In addition,we plan to add more trees along the dividing line

between the Village Green and us.

Mr. Burriss asked if when you have multiple units do they appear'to be one unit or are they

separate. Ms. Stevenson said they are separate and will have a 10'walkwy between them.

Mr. Burriss asked about the existing AC units, and Ms. Stevenson said with the modular units

running parallel to the brick portion of the building,the units would be hidden.

Mr. Burriss asked what the proposal was for the existing storage shed, and Ms. Stevenson said

it would be removed.

Mr. Burriss stated that from what you have said, this is more than a temporary installation,and

Ms. Stevenson said but it is temporary,because they can always be moved and the plan is to return

them to the company,when we are finished, for reimbursement.

Mr. Wilkenfeld reiterated, so these are not visible from the road, and Ms. Stevenson said no.

Mr. Wilkenfeld asked if Ms. Stevenson has had the opportunity to talk to the neighbors whose

houses will be affected, and she said not yet. Mr. Wilkenfeld said I would like to bring them into the

loop and if you can work out some of their concerns when you come back to us that would be very

helpful.

Mr. Burriss stated that a site plan would be needed that showed the existing building,parking

lot and relationships there,but the distances to houses that would be affected;some indication of the

extent of the mound;and the location and some indication of the size of the trees on the mound ( which

could be done with photos as well).

Mr. Wilkenfeld asked Mr. Dorman to go through the code and make sure whatever is brought

in matches the code,and let Granville Christian Academy know of anything that might be pertinent to

their project.

Mr. Burriss asked if these were the only options they offer as far as exterior packages go, and

Ms. Stevenson said the company told her there are a lot of options.

Mr. Burriss said some thought to what will be done with the downspout water would be

appropriate,including where the current downspout water is goilg. The proposals should be submitted

on a site plan of the entire development.

There was some discussion as to the next step in the process, and Mr. Burriss mentioned

notifying the neighbors and Ms. Stevenson said how many houses, and Planning Commission told her

within 200 feet of the property.

21/20/1-Granville Planning Commission 3-

Mr. Salvage said you might open the door of discussion with the neighbors by simply sending

out a letter of explanation and what the proposal is and giving a number for the neighbors to call and discuss the proposal.

Mr. Burriss said he would also like information on the windows package,what the options are and what the school would like;further he stated that the more detail you can give us as to what you

want the better. In addition he said the proposal should include the roof slope, and it might be

beneficial for the school to obtain all the information and come back for another work session.

Mr. Salvage reiterated that this is zoned PUD, and Mr. Dorman confirmed that it is, and Mr.

Salvage then said that Planning Commission won't be giving final approval for this, it will have to go to

Council, and if you want these to be ready for next year you will have to move quick.

Mr. Parris noted that these units are being presented as temporary structures, with no end

point, and as such might be something you will want to discuss, in other words what is the definition of

temporary. Mr. Salvage then said that we would have to approve these as permanent structures.

Mr. Burriss added that the proposal would need to address any overhead wiring, where the

electrical meters will be located, and whether the HVAC units will be wall mounted or roof mounted.

Work Session for Granville Historical Society:

Dick Daley, President, introduced Bob Hill, Dave Neal, and George Wales. Bob Hill began by

saying they are simply in the planning stages for their proposal to move the Sinnett House behind the

Museum to enable them to have more space and at the same time giving the Public Library space to

expand. Preserving the historic Sinnett House, which was previously moved in 1946, would also do the

community a service. Although the Granville Fellowship will lose their home,the Historical Society

will do what it can to find a new home for the Fellowship.

Dick Daley stated the Museum's main goals: ( 1)Gather information of 208 century artifacts;

2)Exhibition space;3 ()Expansion of archives area;4 ()Add reading room for community access;5 ()

Store township and village records;6 ()Office for partt-ime person to assist with database creation.

David Neel said they had a survey done showing setbacks, etc. for the bank and museum. The

west side is 8' into the alley;PNB is right on the property line. On June 16, 1952, Village Council

passed a resolution granting them 9' into the public alleyway and an asphalt drive leading to the drivethrough.

They also have a right to the sidewalk leading to the ATM.

George Wales stated that there would be something like a glass-enclosed space between the

Museum and the Sinnett House. They will remove the kitchen; there will be a basement and maybe an

elevator.

Bob Hill showed his model of the proposed expansion. The basements would be connected.

The gables are the same.' The house- mover thought this project feasible with removal of one dead tree.

It will appear quite massive but only from the Aladdin.

Mr. Burriss thought the second story would be better if not over the entire structure, and the

second floor could be moved back a little. It's important to preserve the appearance of both buildings.

Mr. Parris noted the importance of preventing the Sinnett House from being destroyed. In the

absence of an alternative, he thought this plan might work, but he would rather see more land around it.

Mr. Salvage would like to see detailed site plan, including the bank and measurements.

Permission will be required from Village Council to use the public alley.

Mr. Burriss asked about the traffic flow behind the building, more detail of the side of Sinnett

House, said that the two buildings have to be comfortable with each other, and also to show setbacks.

He also suggested talking to the Newark Building Code office about their fire code requirements, etc.

Work Session on Methodist Church:

2/12/ 01-Granville Planning Commission -4

Architect Philip Markwood showed the updates with the site survey and the revised elevations

on front facade. There will be a small entrance on the west side,identical to that on the east,and

extensive renovations on the east side. The parking lot will be restriped to gain several more spaces,but

the parking on the east will be eliminated. He explained how the bank encroaches into the easement.

They are still working on design work and kitchen plans,but they want to remove the mansard roof on

the classroom building and put in a joint line with stucco,a new strip over it and tile atop. Bracketed

cornices with tile work will be on east and west sides. The steeple is almost identical to what was there

before but of a slightly different material,although it is not apart of the addition proposal,it is just

there for master planning.

Mr. Wilkenfeld feels a conflict because part of him wants to give the church what they need

and the other part of him says this is a very important corner in the Village and a big portion of green

space is taken up and creating a narrow alley and removing trees. He wondered about percentage of lot

coverage.

Mr. Markwood repeated the church's needs,with handicap access,etc. They cannot expand to

the north with different floor levels in the Education Building. The alley will be 12'111h"after

development versus 19-20' now.

Mr. Burriss finds this plan greatly improved over the previous one,but he is troubled about the

exit doors on Broadway. Moving the addition fagade back on the Broadway side would allow more

greenspace and break up the facade offering a softening effect of the corner instead of at a right angle,

so it is perceived as wider. Mr. Markwood thinks this might be do-able.

Mr. Parris was doubtful about mixing half-rounds,arches, and triangle windows on one facade.

Next steps are to finalize the site plan and get footprint approval from the BZBA. Also the

Church should talk to the bank people and inform them of plans.
