Christine Beckman, 452 West Broadway, Fence
For the new fencing in the rear, Ms. Beckman requests a 6' cedar privacy fence (neighbor friendly) and prefers the finish to be natural. She has not yet talked to the neighbors, but she will soon.
Mr. Burriss noted that we require some sort of finish, stain or color, and frequently the color matches the house. Mr. Tyler added that even a natural finish requires a stain or color.
Mr. Burriss also noted that there is no gate pictured on the site plan but Ms. Beckman did not know where to put the gate although it would likely go along the driveway. She wants the fence next to the neighbor's fence, but Mr. Burriss said she cannot have it one foot from the other; rather, she should have a minimum of 3 feet between.
Ms. Beckman also wants a lattice over the driveway, and, lacking a picture, GPC agreed to defer approval to Mr. Strayer.
Of the sample fences pictured, GPC preferred No. 1, the white one pictured.
MR.TYLER MOVED TO APPROVE 06-141 FOR FENCING WITH THE FOLLOWING MODIFICATIONS : (1) GATE TO BE ON THE EAST SIDE OF FENCE ALONG DRIVEWAY, NEAR THE HOUSE; (2) GATE ON THE REAR; (3) ARBOR TO BE APPROVED BY THE VILLAGE PLANNER; (4) TEXTURE AND COLOR OF FENCE TO BE #1 IN THE PHOTOS SENT TO US; (5) FENCE TO BE TREATED WITH NATURAL CLEAR STAIN OR COLOR; (6) 3' SEPARATION TO BE BETWEEN THE EXISTING FENCE TO THE NORTH AND THIS ONE. MR.BURRISS SECONDED, AND MOTION WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.
Angela Amos Barker, 204 South Main Street - Sign
MR. BURRISS MOVED TO TAKE THE APPLICATION OFF THE TABLE. MR. TYLER SECONDED, AND MOTION WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.
The application had been tabled pending picture of sign design, which Ms. Barker presented this evening. The new wooden sign will hang on the existing signpost but will have new fonts, and the color is to be burgundy, white, and black.
MR. BURRISS MOVED TO APPROVE 06-134 FOR FREESTANDING SIGN AS IN THE DRAWING SUBMITTED TONIGHT. MR. TYLER SECONDED, AND MOTION WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.
Wellert Corporation, Arby's, Speedway Drive - Development Plan
Paul Quinn showed the site plan, which has not changed much. They made the revisions GPC recommended. After a question about the engineering site plans, they were sent to the village engineer and the recommendations he made were completed.
Gordon Blissman showed the landscaping plans and has met with the Tree and Landscape Committee, who seemed comfortable with the plans. He showed the rendering coming in off Speedway Drive. They are landscaping both entrances and they will be compatible with Speedway. The evergreens will be exactly alike
Mr. Burriss said on the southwest side we talked about the placement of the tree on the lot so that the tree on the Arby lot and the Speedway tree will be staggered, and Mr. Blissman showed their location.
Mr. Quinn said they will be using the same material for the base for the post lights.
Mr. Burriss asked about the awnings and was told they will be green and the roof the same green. Speedway wanted us to use the same parking lot lighting, and ours is green. The canopy has green posts. He asked about the bollards around the gas meter which shows a yellow color but was told they will match the brick.
Mr. Tyler thought the applicants have made a lot of alterations to Arby's typical cookie cutter design, and Mr. Gilbert said a lot of times a municipality wants changes.
There will be a hose for cleaning the dumpster. The grease will go into a pit for a truck to pick up weekly.
Mr. Burriss said we prefer the green columns for lighting, and recommended picking up the color supporting the canopy lighting. He suggested a fluted parking light post. We need to be sure lighting does not escape.
Regarding signage, Mr. Quinn showed material for the 24' monument sign. The hat is 13.5 sq.ft. Mr. Strayer said the freestanding sign can be 18 sq.ft. They will match Speedway's monument sign. Regarding signage on the building, Arby's wants 4, but the code says one per building, but it's up to GPC as to how to approve this. Mr. Burriss wants to eliminate one sign on the building. Mr. Quinn said they could probably go to 30" from the requested 36" and keep four of them, 5.5' long.
Mr. Burriss asked what the menu board would look like and was told it is on the specs. The red will be gone, and the canopy over the ordering window will be green.
Next steps: Need foot candle schematics
Need material from the engineer
Need any changes GPC makes tonight
This will be a recommendation for approval with conditions to Village Council, who will use GPC's Finding of Fact with conditions. They will have revised plans to look at.
Mr. Burriss is comfortable and said they have done everything we asked for.
MR. BURRISS MOVED TO APPROVE 04-024 WITH THE FOLLOWING CONDITIONS: (1), THE WALL SIGNS WILL BE DOWNSIZED TO 30"; (2) FOOT CANDLE DIAGRAM FOR LIGHTING IS TO BE SUBMITTED AND APPROVED; (3) ALL OTHER GRANVILLE DEPARTMENT HEADS MUST APOPROVE DRAWINGS; (4) BOLLARDS WILL NOT BE YELLOW BUT PAINTED A COLOR TO COORDINATE WITH THE BRICK; AND (5) MONUMENT SIGN IS TO MATCH THE BRICK. MR. TYLER SECONDED, AND MOTION WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.
Finding of Fact: MR. TYLER MOVED TO APPROVE THE FINDINGS FOR ITEMS A UNDER NEW BUSINESS AND A AND B UNDER OLD BUSINESS AND WE FIND THEM CONSISTENT WITH RELEVANT SECTIONS OF THE CODE AS OUTLINED IN THE VILLAGE PLANNER'S MEMO OF OCTOBER 1O, 2006. MR. BURRISS SECONDED, AND MOTION WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.
Adjournment: 8:06 p.m.
