New Business:

First Presbyterian Church.110 W.Broadway.Widen Roadway

Mr. Burriss recused himself from this hearing.}

Mr. Dorman stated that as you recall at the November 27, 2000 Planning Commission meeting

you heard an application from Robertson Construction ( for the First Presbyterian Church)to approve

the as-built width of Locust Place, in the area of the 3 parking spaces, at 15'.At that meeting Planning

Commission did not approve the application. Robertson Construction ( for the church)is back tonight.

There has been an agreement reached with the neighboring property owners to widen Locust Place to

16' from the Village sidewalk to the existing No Parking sign, which is approximately 70' to the north.

Dan Stevens explained that there will be a 6"curb, and they will remove the sidewalk.

Ms. Lucier asked whether this was consistent with the appeal ruling that Village Council made,

and the answer was yes.

Bob Seith said this is a good faith effort to resolve the problem, and we need to do it and get on

with it.

MR. WILKENFELD MOVED TO APPROVE # 01-020 TO WIDEN LOCUST PLACE. MR.

SALVAGE SECONDED, AND IT WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.

Granville Thrift Shop. 454 S.Main Street -Sign

Mr. Dorman explained that the applicant would like to relocate an existing wall sign that was

installed at the old thrift shop building and move it to the new thrift shop building located at 454 South

Main Street. He directed Planning Commission's attention to the photos enclosed in the packet as to

where the sign is located and what it looks like.

MR. WILKENFELD MOVED TO APPROVE APPLICATION0 #1-021 AS PROPOSED. MR.

PARRIS SECONDED, AND IT WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.

Work Session with Concorde Capital Corporation:

Mr. Dorman said that Joe and Larke Recchie wish to develop the Reese property across from

1

GPC,3401,*2

Fackler's on Granville Road,dedicatingthe front area for school space,or other civic use,and the rear

area on theS *hssid;eottheva-Hey for an independent living community.Mr.Recchie explained that he

has not yet purchased the property but thatthis is his plan and not the plan ofthe current owners. The

development will consider carefully the schools'needs,the terrain and valley,the neighbors,and

economic issues.

A. If it works out as an appropriate location for a school site,it would logically be on the road

frontage. They are not involved in any current debate on school locations or about

dedicating the space for some time in the future. The School Superintendent has expressed

interest in the site.

B. The remainder of the property would be for senior living. Considerations include

protecting the scenic views,as well as preservation of open space.

Mr. Myers asked for details about the senior living,and Mr. Recchie said it would be a senior

campus with: 1()a congregate building;2 ()ranchs-tyle cluster structures in a campus setting with a

combination of rental units and ownership;3 ()They see significant potential for the intergenerational

interaction and volunteerism for seniors and students at the school and students at the center,and; ( 4)

They would protect the pristine environmental aspects of the area.

The group discussed the following issues: 1)Road access to the facility i(.e.,Cherry Valley

Road,Milner Road,etc.a)n,d 2)Zoning restrictions i(.e.c,urrently zoning on a 92 acre parcel would

allow for 92 units).

Planning Commission told the Recchies that for the next work session they would like to see a

rough sketch of the site layout.

Work Session with Granville Ross IGA:

Laura AndujarR (obertson Construction)and Greg RossR (oss IGA)were there to present the

elevations for the proposed two-story rear addition to the Ross IGA, and to receive input from the

Planning Commission.

The drawings and elevations were discussed for a while and Planning Commission seemed to be

satisfied with what was being proposed. Discussion then turned to the front elevation,where the site

plan for the front and rear were discussed in great length, including the possibility of installing a

sidewalk from the existing sidewalk running parallel to South Main Street to the proposed front

entrance to the IGA. Thoughts turned to how Certified Oil could work a connection to the IGA

sidewalk through their property down to the South Main sidewalk. This possibility will be presented to

Certified at their April 9,2001 work session with Planning Commission. Other issues discussed

included parking both in the front and rear,as well as a lighting plan for the site.

MR. WILKENFELD MOVED TO APPROVE THE FINDINGS OF FACT FOR A AND B UNDER

NEW BUSINESS ( First Presbyterian Church and Granville Thrift Shop)AND FIND THEM

CONSISTENT WITH RELEVANT SECTIONS OF THE VILLAGE PLANNER'S MEMO OF
