structure and will not be visible from Main Street.

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

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

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

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

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

Work Session:

Judy Guenther.230 East BroadwayC -hapike ofUse

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

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

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

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

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

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

prepared on site.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

among the three buildings there.

No one had serious opposition to the project.

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

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

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

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

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

proposed front facade.

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

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

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

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

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

would be fine.

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

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

ATM inside the building.

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

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

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

Gra, iville Historical Society

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

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

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

way in the 19505.

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

length combined with the concise Sinnett House.

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

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

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

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

but they need the same vocabulary.

3

Granville Planning Commission,10/ 9/0'1

Mr. Myers gave architectural suggestions.

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

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

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

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

group concurred.
