Granville Shopping Center,484 SouthMain StreetP -arking Lot Improvements

Mr. Dorman said the applicant is proposing to renovate the parking lot with cement planting

barriers and parking blocks to facilitate traffic.

Dean Ramsey,landscape architect,said there has been a lot ofdiscussion about the juxtaposition

betweentIGA and the gas station. When he talked to Ms. Ross,she told him that they have to widen the

approach by 10'.Mr. Ramsey said they are trying to make the traffic more functional. He showed GPC

members how the driveway would be altered to allow more stacking. This would avoid having people

cross in the middle. They would abandon a part ofthe bank space and enlarge the loop with one entrance

and exit'. Planting will be along walkway islands. Parking areas would be changed to get in more

parking.,They can put in some bollards with lights. Mrs. Ross is not completely happy with the new

traffic plan.

Andy Furr,from Certified,stated that this would be a revision ofGPC's prior approval. An

agreement has been reached with the Village,but there are other issues here. We agreed to move it back

10'to improve traffic flow. Mr. Wilkenfeld wants to make sure the.involved parties are in agreement.

Mr. Parris said that at one work session we talked about this a lot,and he thought everybody

t agreed upon the overaillayout. Now the whole thing looks different. He is not willing to overturn

something we have already approved,especially in light ofthe fact that IGA and Certified are still talking

out an agreement He recommended another work session.

Mr.Ramsey said the gas station's throat needs to be narrowed and moved back from the street.

He said he got a more accurate survey and it changed the parking slightly. He needed space for

movement of cars.

Mr. Salvage asked what agreements were made with the Village. This application is in conflict

with an already approved application. He hopes some kind of accommodation can be reached. The

applicant and Certified Oil need to come back with something that everybody agrees on.

Ms. Ross requested to table the application until the issues can be resolved.
