New Business:
Villaize of Granville - Welcome to Granville Signs
Mr. Dorman said there are three types of signs: 1( )A larger two post, welcome sign, 2()the
same sign but smaller and mounted on one post; and (3)service organizations sign. He stated that after
the last work session we needed to select one of two color schemesw-h- ite lettering on green with white
posts or green letters on white with green posts.
Constance Barsky, from the Beautification Committee, stated her issues with the proposal: 1()
The nature of the logo vs. the logo on the letterhead. The proportions on the letterhead seem to be
better. 2 ()The committee still prefers black lettering on a white background
Suzy Murr added that the size jumped out at her and wondered whether it would rest on lower
posts. Also, the logo is not the one the committee proposed.
Consensus agreed the sign was too large.
Mr. Burriss wondered whether the grass would be maintained under the signs, and as such he
would like to see the sign installed higher
Mr. Parris thought the height of the posts would be more determined by the location and
topography and its relevance to the road. Mr. Dorman said no determination has been made about
where the signs will go. Mr. Myers thought there could be a little sign at each entrance and did not
think the larger sign would even be needed. He likes the sign hanging on the post.
For the organizational sign, Mr. Burriss asked whether each organization would have meeting
times listed and was told yes. Mr. Myers stated that the size of the service sign needs to be as small as
Granville Planning Commission,9-24-01
possiblenmaybe,4- x,!2'.Mr. Parris stated his concern that white signs tend to lookdirty after some
time.4 #1,54",, ,i·n#'%su,:
Ms.Lucier stated that the Village Council preferred the green background,and that it appears
the consensus of the Planning Commission is for the green also.
Mr. Burriss likes the hanging sign but it needs to be at a proper height to reflect headlights.
The logo was controversial and it was determined that it should be bigger. After some
discussion about the logo,in which the Planning Commission stated they did not really like the logo,
Ms.Barsky said a compromise could be the white background sign and no center graphic. Mr.
Dorman will have a new mock-up made illustrating this idea,and will determine the size needed for the
service organization sign.
MR. SALVAGE MOVED TO TABLE APPLICATION0 #1-122, PENDING THE RECEIPT OF
ADDITIONAL SIGN SAMPLES. MR. BURRISS SECONDED, AND THE MOTION WAS
UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.
Rob Firchau,126 North Prospect Street C-hange ofUse
The applicant wants to change the building from a coffee shop to a retail shop for specialty
foods. No issues were raised.
MR. SALVAGE MOVED TO APPROVE APPLICATION0 #1-129 AS PRESENTED. MR. BURRISS
SECONDED,AND THE MOTION WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.
Rob Firchau, 126 North Prospect StreetW -all and Sandwich Board Signs
The applicant wishes to install two signs: 1 ()A 4'x4'wall sign to replace the existing sign on the
south side,and 2( )A 2'x4' sandwich board sign.
Mr. Firchau said the lettering on the sandwich board is both dark olive green and black. All
lettering is black with green logo. The green on the wall sign is Pantone 371 and will have a black edge.
Since a wall sign may not exceed 8 square feet,a variance is required for this 16 square foot sign.
Mr. Salvage applied the application to the criteria in 1147.03:
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. The sign is in an existing sign location.
B. That a literal interpretation ofthe provisions ofthis 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 is clear,we have wall signs everywhere,and a literal
interpretation would deprive the applicant ofrights commonly enjoyed by other properties.
C. That the special conditions and circumstances do not result from the actions of the applicant.
No.
D. That the granting of this 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
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.

Granville Planning Commission,9-24-01
MR. SALVAGE SAID THAT BECAUSE OF THE ARGUMENTS CITED,I MOVE TO GRANT A
VARIANCE ON THE SIZE OF THE WALL SIGN FOR APPLICATION # 01-130. MR.BURRISS
SECONDED,AND THE MOTION WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.
MR. SALVAGE MOVED TO APPROVE APPLICATION # 01-130, SUBJECT TO THE FOLLOWING:
1)THAT ON THE WALL SIGN THERE WILL BE A BLACK BORDER;AND 2)THAT ON THE
SANDWICH BOARD SIGN WE APPROVE THE USE OF BOTH OLIVE GREEN AND BLACK
LETTERING. MR. PARRIS SECONDED,AND THE MOTION WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.
St.Luke's Episcopal Church,118 SouthMain StreetG -round Sign
Mr. Dorman said the applicant is proposing a 3'x2' ground sign on an existing pole with a white
background,blue lettering and border,and the crest as shown.
Ginny Sharkey from the church had nothing to add.
Mr. Parris asked Mr. Dorman to explain why this sign is nonconforming and was told that as the
pole exists, it is within the right-of-way. To be outside ofthe right-of-way,the sign would have to be 5'-
6' inside the building. This requires a variance.
Mr. Salvage said this replaces a sign that was there in front ofthe property owned by the Village.
Mr. Parris 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. The special circumstances include the placement of the building on the lot, and that the
pole for the sign is already in place.
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. We have to grant variances,because of these types of
situations, quite often in the Village, so I do not think we would be doing anything we have not
seen fit to do for anyone else.
C. That the special conditions and circumstances do not result from the actions of the applicant.
No, they did not place the building where it is now.
D. That the granting of this 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,it is the
nature ofthe location.
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.
MR. PARRIS MOVED TO APPROVE A VARIANCE FOR APPLICATION # 01-131 TO PLACE THE
SIGN ON THE EXISTING POLE,WHICH IS IN A NONCONFORMING LOCATION. MR.
BURRISS SECONDED,AND THE MOTION WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.
Ginny Sharkey stated that they want to identify this as a part of St. Luke's rather than Sensibilities.
You can see it from both directions. The front door is on the north side and will have no sign. This sign
will be temporary until the first lease is up in three years,at which time we might request a more
permanent sign. Mr. Burriss said the current sign at the church is so fantastic that it would be an
appropriate design for the new sign.

Old Business:
Granville Village Schools,248 New Burg Street M- odification
Mr. Salvage recused himselfin order to present the application. }
Mr. Dorman stated that the plan previously approved included a driveway extension that would
have extended across the school property with access to Burg Street. Now they want to remove that part
ofit and leave the greenspace. Mr. Salvage added that when they did the final architectural drawings,
they realized there would be a fire code problem,so they went back to dropping offschool children on the
other side ofthe school. There is no longer a need for an extension from the middle school and the
request is to leave that area with the current landscaping as is.
Ms. Lucier asked what were the benefits for the previous plan,and Mr. Salvage said they wanted
to fully separate passenger drop-offfrom bus drop off. Busses drop offin front and cars drop offin the
rear.
MR. BURRISS MOVED THAT THIS IS A MINOR MODIFICATION. MR. PARRIS SECONDED,

Work Session:
Dan Rogers.210 EastMaple StreetC -ontinuedDiscussion ofNonc-ompliant Garage
Mr. Salvage recused himselffrom considering this work session. }
Mr. Rogers repeated that the main issues were:1 ()Where the windows sit,and he said the window
will but up into the banding. 2 ()The shed roofor protection over doors;3 ()The style ofdoors;4 ()The
matching ofthe double window in the back;and ( 5)The side view ofthe shed roofover the garage door.
He explained these concerns to the group.
Mr. Myers stated that the front elevation over all has come a long way. He is not crazy about the
horizontal windows in the back. Mr. Rogers said the horizontal window matches the horizontal window
on the house.
Mr. Burriss stated that the window should be installed high enough to be over the headlights.
Repeating the window pattern makes it more comfortable with other windows. He asked how garage
doors will function and was told that it looks like four individual doors but there will be two sliding doors,
opening only halfway.
More discussion ensued on the windows,the detail ofthe bottom ofthe building,and the scale of
the little cornices.
Mr. Rogers is ready to make an application. Mr. Burriss requested detail on the bottom ofthe
building.

concrete or landscape timbers; to add a picket fence to the front yard, and a brick patio on the east side

what would look best. The picket fence around the front yard will be 42"high with posts and caps 46"

Granville Shopping Center,484 SouthMain StreetP -arking Lot Improvements
Mr. Dorman said the applicant is proposing to renovate the parking lot with cement planting
barriers and parking blocks to facilitate traffic.
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
10'to improve traffic flow. Mr. Wilkenfeld wants to make sure the.involved parties are in agreement.
Mr. Parris said that at one work session we talked about this a lot,and he thought everybody
t agreed upon the overaillayout. Now the whole thing looks different. He is not willing to overturn
something we have already approved,especially in light ofthe fact that IGA and Certified are still talking
out an agreement He recommended another work session.
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. Salvage asked what agreements were made with the Village. This application is in conflict
with an already approved application. He hopes some kind of accommodation can be reached. The
applicant and Certified Oil need to come back with something that everybody agrees on.
Ms. Ross requested to table the application until the issues can be resolved.

Brent G&igi Smith.225 West Elm Street G-arage/Familv Room
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

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:

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

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.

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.

The Chair swore in all those who planned to speak.
Minutes of November 13,2001:Consideration of Minutes will be postponed until the next meeting.
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

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.

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

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

Minutes of October 22,2001:
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

Granville Planning Commission,11-13-01
FOLLOWING: 1 ()THAT THE APPLICANT WILL PROVIDE MORE DETAILED DRAWINGS,
AND FINAL APPROVAL TO BE GRANTED BY MR. BURRISS;AND ( 2)THAT THE
CONCRETE PAD AND WALKWAY TO THE STREET BE BRICKED WITHIN 2 YEARS. MR.
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.

New Business:
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
MR.SALVAGE MOVED TO APPROVE APPLICATION0 #1-047 AS SUBMITTED WITH
THE STIPULATION THAT ANY SIGNS PLACED ALONG ROADWAYS WOULD NOT
INTERFERE WITH SIGHT.DISTANCE FOR TRAFFIC. MR.WILKENFELD SECONDED,AND
THE MOTION WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.
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
A DRUG STORE TO A COFFEE SHOP;AND (2)TO STRIKE THE CEMENT TABLES FROM THE
APPLICATION. MR. WILKENFELD SECONDED,AND THE MOTION WAS UNANIMOUSLY
APPROVED.
MR. SALVAGE ALSO MOVED TO RECOMMEND THAT WE INDICATE A WILLINGNESS TO
ALLOW THE APPLICANT TO PUT TABLES IN THE PUBLIC RIGHT OF WAY IF THE VILLAGE

Granville Schools,248 New Burer StreetB -uildiniz Addition
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. BURRISS MOVED TO TABLE THE APPLICATION AND MR.WILKENFELD SECONDED.

Jov Sperlin2, 231 South Main Street- Air Conditioner
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.
MR.WILKENFELD MOVED TO APPROVE APPLICATION # 01-057 WITH THE CONDITION
THAT THE MAPLE STREET SIDE BE SCREENED WITH APPROPRIATE VEGETATION. MR.

Mr. Dorman said that since we discussed this at the last meeting,there have been other pieces to
the renovation. The applicant wants to (1)replace slate shingles with estate gray dimensional shingles,
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
stands up."Mr. Wilson said there is a 2' drop and leveling it would make it more accessible. He added,
in answer to a question from Mr. Burriss, that there is insufficient room for planting between the parking
area and the house.

centering it on the dining room addition,so that she can match a window on the first floor with a window
on the second floor.
Ned Roberts added that the reason she wants to move it is to improve the floor plan and to better
match up windows.

Greg Ross stated that because ofcost issues,they want to add a one-story addition onto the back,
and he provided architectural drawings. He said that eventually he would like to see a second floor.
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.

Howell, contractor, brought in the sample spindles, new and old, which are similar, except that the new

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

Mr.Dorman explained that the applicant wishes to renovate the house with a new patio,staircase
connecting living level to the patio,replacement windows and door,and to screen the air conditioner. Mr.
Jakob explained that the house slopes down and has no rear exit except through the basement. A sun

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

Frank Murphy.33 Wexford Drive - Lot Split
Mr. Dorman said the application is to split Lot 101 and divide it between Lots 102 and 100 in
order to increase the size of these two lots. The previous lot split, approved last December, intended to split some of Lot 100 and add to 101, but it did not work out.
Frank Murphy, who lives at Lot 101, said that this proposal would decrease the total number of
lots by one.

Mr. Dorman explained that the applicant wishes to construct a restroom building near the soccer
field and lacrosse field. It will be splitface concrete block with asphalt shingles. It will have vinyl siding
and louvers.
Art Chonko said it would be similar to the one on the other side ofthe street. Everything is
compliant with the building codes.

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

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.

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.

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

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.

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

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

Minutes of December 11, 2000: MR. SALVAGE MOVED TO APPROVE MINUTES AS PRESENTED. MR. BURRIS SECONDED,AND MOTION WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.
Work Session on " Welcome to Granville"Signs
Mr. Myers shared drawings of the proposed signs. Several changes were agreed upon:
Sign should be below post caps ( 3-4")
Add S"ettled in 1805"to all signs
Add post bases on big signs, base needs to feel like a base
Color scheme to be a white sign with dark green lettering and dark green posts. GPC wants to
see the green, and to keep the dark green sign with white lettering and white posts an option.
Mr. Myers will ask his graphic designer to prepare this for the sign company. The Village will make a formal application and then we will have another work session with the sign fabricator present.
New Business:
Village of Granville. 141 East Broadway -Signage
The Village wants to replace signage for (1)Police Department and ( 2)Village Offices. Such
signs are exempt from regulations,although these are almost consistent,except for the number of signs permitted.
1) The Police Department wants three signs
Wall sign, mounted beside the police station door.
A pair of back-to-back signs mounted on light pole
Ground sign placed in planting bed at the front of the Village Hall
GPC members agreed that the status quo is unsatisfactory, but the application has drawbacks:
Does not like the fact that the awnings cover the transom.
A suspended sign, consistent with the Welcome To Granville Signs,with approved lighting
would be preferable.
Ms. Lucier thought the word POLICE could be added to the message board, and the message
board could be moved closer to the corner of Broadway and Prospect.
Mr. Myers thought any signs with an arrow pointing to the police station are a huge mistake.
1/22/ 01-Granville Planning Commission -2
If kiosks,with directories,are installed much of this signage would be unnecessary.
Reader's Garden might not appreciate a sign in their lawn.
The group wondered what happened to the old sign, and asked Mr. Dorman to find out.
Relative to the proposed sign in the Village Hall window,the following comments were
expressed:
Awning should be no lower than top of the transom.
The existing door and sidelights were to be temporary.
The idea of a new door should be revisited,similar to the old wooden door that had nice brass
hardware and a kickplate. GPC never really liked the aluminum door.
Investigate new door before considering signage.
If the awning could be moved up,and the transom is visible,this is not as big an issue.
Look at lettering on transom becoming gold leaf.
Add no more signs on big windows.
What happened to the side- mounted lights?
MR. SALVAGE MOVED TO APPROVE APPLICATION AS PRESENTED. MR. PARRIS

Minutes of February 12, 2001: MR. SALVAGE MOVED TO APPROVE MINUTES AS
PRESENTED. MR. PARRIS SECONDED,AND MOTION WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.
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.

2/ 26/ 01-Granville Planning Commission -3
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.

SECONDED,AND MOTION WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.
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.

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.

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.

Minutes of July 23,2001: MR. SALVAGE MOVED TO APPROVE THE MINUTES AS
SUBMITTED. MR. WILKENFELD SECONDED, AND THE MOTION WAS UNANIMOUSLY
APPROVED.
Work Session:
Robert Kent -Brvn Du Woods. Phase V
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
the reserve area. Members agreed with the updated plans.
New Business:
Russ Adams. 111 North Prospect Street P-rojecting Sign
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.
MR. SALVAGE MOVED TO APPROVE APPLICATION # 01-063 SUBJECT TO THE SIGN NOT
BEING SANDBLASTED, BUT BEING A FLAT BOARD SIGN WITH VINYL OR PAINTED
LETTERING. MR. PARRIS SECONDED, AND THE MOTION WAS UNANIMOUSLY

GPC,8/23/01 2
APPROVED.
Robert Seith,116 LocustPlaceS -torage Shed
Mr. Seith is requesting a wood shed to enclose the equipment presently under tarps in his yard,
The shed will be over a stone base and will have a tongue- in-groove floor and vinyl finish. The beige
color will match the house as best he can. It is to be lighter in color than in the picture provided with a
darker roof Two little windows will be on the north side. It will have a little ramp at the entrance to
drive his tractor in.
MR. SALVAGE MOVED TO APPROVE APPLICATION # 01-102 SUBJECT TO THE FOLLOWING:
1)THAT THE STYLE THAT WAS PRESENTED TONIGHT IS THE STYLE THAT WILL BE
BUILT;2)THE COLORS WILL BE AS FOLLOWS: THE SIDING IS BEIGE,THE TRIM WHITE
AND THE ROOF CHARCOAL;3)A WOOD RAMP TO THE ENTRANCE DOOR WILL BE
PROVIDED;AND 4)THERE WILL BE TWO ( 2)WINDOWS ON THE NORTH SIDE OF THE
STRUCTURE. MR. WILKENFELD SECONDED,AND THE MOTION WAS UNANIMOUSLY
APPROVED.
Bernie Williams,113 East Elm StreetS -ide and Rear Fence
Mr. Dorman stated that the applicant wants to replace the split rail fence at the Main Street
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.
MR. SALVAGE MOVED TO TABLE THE REQUEST FOR MODIFICATION TO APPLICATION
01-087,PENDING RECEIPT OF A NEW DRAWING WITH SPECIFICATIONS. MR..PARRIS
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.

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
SECONDED, AND IT WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.
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

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.

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.

PLANNING & ZONING
MEMORANDUM
TO: Planning Commission Members
FROM: Seth
DATE: May 10,2001
SUBJECT: Change in Landscape Plan for Taylor Drug
At the April 9,2001 Planning Commission meeting,the commission approved a modification to the Taylor Drug permit approved last year. The modification entailed
permitting the applicant to reduce the elevation on the north property line and to create a 5' wide planting bed,providing the bank concurred. In addition, Greg Ream noted that
Jim Siegel of the Tree L&andscape Commission mentioned that it would be pointless to replant a tree in place ofthe tree on the north side that would have to be removed. This
initiated a long discussion about replacing that tree and making other landscaping
changes. In the end,Planning Commission approved the replacement ofthe tree to be
lost with an ash tree,and on the originally approved Landscape Plan where it called for
red spires,those should also be replaced by ash trees. After the motion was made,I
stated that because this is a change to an approved Landscape Plan,the Tree & Landscape
Commission should also review and approve the change. I received instruction from the
Commission to confirm whether or not Planning Commission can make landscaping
decisions without coordination with the Tree & Landscape Commission.
After reviewing the Tree &Landscape Chapter of the Zoning Ordinance and
having discussions with both Joe Hickman and Jim Siegel,I feel that Planning
Commission has unintentionally breached a certain level ofprotocol as far as the
landscaping code is concerned. To begin, Chapter 1193.08 ofthe Zoning Code,in
paragraph 2 states that, T "he Planning Commission shall,prior to its consideration of a
landscape plan,forward a copy ofthe plan along with any other information provided by
the developer to the Tree and Landscape Commission for its review and
recommendation. Upon receipt ofthe recommendation and/ or comment from the Tree
and Landscape Commission,the Planning Commission shall begin its review."The third
paragraph goes on,I n" the event recommendation is not received within thirty days after
the transmittal of the plan to the Tree and Landscape Commission, the Planning
Commission may proceed in accordance with these regulations."The Zoning Ordinance
does not address modifications made to an approved Landscape Plan,so we must default
to the only process that is specifically described in the code,and that is to give the Tree &
Landscape Commission a chance to review your recommendations to change the red
spire trees to ash trees. The code does not say that Planning Commission must
automatically approve whatever recommendations the Tree and Landscape Commission

A:
make,but it has created an awkward situation now that the process has been not followed
in this situation. The Planning Commission must appreciate the individuals that make up
the Tree & Landscape Commission and respect their opinions in matters oftrees and
landscaping.
At this time,the Tree & Landscape Commission has reviewed your
recommendation that the proposed red spire trees in the approved landscape plan for
Taylor Drug should be switched to ash trees,in addition that the tree that must be
removed on the north side ofthe property should be replaced with an ash tree. I have
attached a letter from Jim Siegel and in it he details the Tree & Landscape Commission's
recommendations regarding the replacement of red spires with ash. He states that the
Commission does not feel that ash trees are appropriate for the location and that
arborvitae be used as it is evergreen and provides upright,pyramidal growth and does not
require a large footprint growth area. In addition,the arborvitae does not shed leaves and
will not become a maintenance problem.
The following information is just FYI and gives us some things to think about,
because our code is very vague on the duties and responsibilities ofthe Tree &
Landscape Commission. The Commission was initially created in 1967 as the Granville
Improvement Board and I have not yet had a chance to look up the Ordinance at the
Historical Society to see if speaks to specific duties and responsibilities. In the early 90s,
as the Board began obtaining grants for tree planting and other landscaping projects a
movement was spearheaded to change the name ofthe Improvement Board to something
that more concisely reflected what the group did and was all about,and in 1992 Council
officially changed the name ofthe Granville Improvement Board to the Tree &
Landscape Commission, and that Ordinance does not specifically detail the duties and
responsibilities ofthe commission. In addition,the commission receives a budget of
around $ 20,000 per year to carry out its various programs. At the April 18th Council
Meeting, Council asked Joe to review the mechanisms that established the Tree &
Landscape Commission. Upon review of the available information, Council may choose
to modify their authority and perhaps their role.
Ifyou have questions or concerns about the information in this memo please call
Joe or myself to discuss them, otherwise I would like to address this issue at the May 14
meeting, so that Greg Ream can move forward on the landscaping portion of the
application modification the Planning Commission approved on April 9.

The TreeL/andscape Commission would like to recommend that two trees be planted in the tree
lawn on the west side of the new Taylor Drug Store. We are recommending that they be Ivory
Silk Tree Lilacs. Because of the narrow area on the west side,we feel these trees would be a
good choice.
I'was also told that ash trees had been selected to serve as a screen on the We corner ofthe
building site. We do not feel that this is a desirable choice. The growth habit of this tree,( over
the years reaching perhaps 80 feet in height with trunk diameters of possibly three feet)requires
a large tree lawn area,as well as a large open growth area. It also sheds its leaves in the fall
creating a clean up problem.
If the intent is to provide screening,we would like to suggest that arborvitae be used . This
evergreen provides a upright,pyramidal growth,remains green year round,does not need a large
footprint growth area,and sheds no leaves.
If additional information is needed,please let me know.
Thank you.
