Susan and Charles Rockwell, 129 West Broadway – Utility Shed
Mr. Dorman said the application is to install an 8’x 8’ x 7’ vinyl utility shed with a wood base, behind the garage and at least 10’ from the west property line. Mr. Rockwell said it will be painted white, and it will not be visible from the street.
MR. PARRIS MOVED TO APPROVE APPLICATION #02-103 AS SUBMITTED. MR. WILKENFELD SECONDED, AND THE MOTION WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.
William Zink and Mary Van Paepechem, 425 Burg Street – Lot Split
Mr. Dorman said the applicants propose to split 0.007 of an acre at the rear of the property so the Goldblatts at 419 Burg Street could have a more functional lot. No variances would be required, and a survey has been completed. David Neel said the Goldblatts acquired another portion of this lot several years ago when another person owned it. Because of the steep terrain, it’s an unbuildable strip of land.
MR. WILKENFELD MOVED TO APPROVE APPLICATION #02-108 AS PRESENTED. MR. PARRIS SECONDED, AND THE MOTION WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.
The Broadway Deli, 126 East Broadway – Valance
Mr. Dorman said last year the applicant came in and received approval to paint the building and remove the awning over the first floor window, as well as install small awnings over each second story window. Tonight the applicant is requesting a modification to install a valance on the outside of the first floor window. The valance would be similar to the awnings on the second story with the same red and white stripe and scallop pattern. The applicant was not present tonight. Mr. Salvage remembered that the Planning Commission had suggested at the first hearing that the applicant might want an awning over that window, but at the time they did not want it. Mr. Salvage sees no problem with this request.
MR. WILKENFELD MOVED THAT THIS IS A MINOR MODIFICATION TO APPLICATION #01-123. MR. PARRIS SECONDED, AND THE MOTION WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.
MR. PARRIS MOVED TO APPROVE A MODIFICATION TO APPLICATION #01-123 AS PRESENTED. MR. WILKENFELD SECONDED, AND THE MOTION WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.
Village of Granville - Village Hall Improvements
Mr. Dorman reviewed that in 1999 or 2000 the Village came through with improvements to Village Hall in two phases. Now both permits have expired and are void. Joe Hickman and Mr. Dorman tried to recreate a list of things to be done, some of which require Planning Commission approval and others do not. Tonight Laura Andujar, Architect, will talk about some of the things we are looking at. They were considering a fence on the roof to screen the mechanicals. Ms. Andujar showed the Commission the plans to date, noting they will improve the drainage system. They are seeking a railing to give a new look to the entrance, which would be subject to Planning Commission approval. Mr. Burriss had asked previously whether the awning should be moved up above the transom. There will be a new entrance door and coach lights to either side of the entrance. Mr. Parris thought they might order sidelights and transom to match the door and it would go a long way to warming that up. They could put in a whole new unit with wood frame. They make composite frames now. They might continue the transom line across and divide it up evenly between the windows. If the opening were moved in a little bit, there would be room for some nice trim inside and out. It might be important to see how wide the door must be to accommodate wheelchairs. The front door is the top priority, and then they will consider changing the window appearance. Mr. Wilkenfeld asked whether the rail would be on both sides of the ramp and was told yes. Mr. Parris thought they could put in a simple rail on the back and a more attractive one on the front. Finding of Fact: MR. PARRIS MOVED TO APPROVE FINDINGS FOR A AND B UNDER NEW BUSINESS (Rockwell, Zink) AND ITEM A UNDER OLD BUSINESS (The Broadway Deli), AND WE FIND THEM CONSISTENT WITH THE RELEVANT SECTIONS OF THE ZONING CODE AS OUTLINED IN THE VILLAGE PLANNER’S MEMO OF AUGUST 9, 2002. MR. WILKENFELD SECONDED, AND THE MOTION WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.
Adjournment: 8:05 P.M. Next Meetings: September 9, 2002. AUGUST 26 MEETING IS CANCELLED.
