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

Work Session with Concorde Capital Corporation:
Mr. Dorman said that Joe and Larke Recchie wish to develop the Reese property across from
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
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
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.
