Minutes of June 25,2001: MR. SALVAGE MOVED TO APPROVE MINUTES AS PRESENTED.

New Business:

Park National Bank,119 East BroadwayA -wning Sign

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

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

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

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

ATM"from the window.

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

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

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

UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.

Old Business:

Taylors' Drugs,200 East BroadwavL -andscaping

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

and they can change the plantings.

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

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

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

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

varieties.

Granville Planning Commission,July 9,2001

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

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

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

office.

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

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

Work Sessions:

Dan Rogers.210 EastMapleN -onc-ompliant Garage

Mr. Salvage recused himselffrom this discussion. }

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

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

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

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

A shed roof would have cornice detail on either side.

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

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

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

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

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

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

4 together. Although Ms. Franks said the neighbor had no objections to the plans,neighbors in theu«tu?re

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

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

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

likes the feeling ofthat detail.

Methodist Church,102 East BroadwayM -ajor Expansion Project

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

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

their latest architectural and site drawings.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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