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
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
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
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.
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.
