Minutes of April 10: On Page 1, the second line under Denison, Mr. Strayer asked to change to "The silo will be 20' taller…" MR. WILKENFELD MOVED TO APPROVE WITH CORRECTION. MR. TYLER SECONDED, AND MOTION WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.
Denison University Track - Remodeling
Art Chonko explained the renovations planned to the football field and track, with new lighting, support buildings, sod, and outbuildings around the track. They are not changing anything at the parking lot.
Ms. O'Keefe asked how long night games will go on, and Mr. Chonko said around 10 p.m., similar to games now and games at the high school.
Mr. Wilkenfeld asked whether the new lighting will affect neighboring houses, and Mr. Chonko said probably it would not.
MR. WILKENFELD MOVED TO APPROVE 06-049 AS SUBMITTED. MR. TYLER SECONDED, AND MOTION WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.
Scott Hickey, 211 South Main Street - Driveway Replacement
Four years ago Mr. Hickey asked for and received approval to renovate his driveway, but financial issues precluded completing the project at that time. Tonight the exact same application is before you because the permit expired.
MR. WILKENFELD MOVED TO APPROVE 06-055 AS SUBMITTED. MR. MITCHELL SECONDED, AND MOTION WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.
Brian Barkett, 120 W. Broadway - Awning
The owner of a business behind Pinkerton's on Linden wishes to add a strip on the awning rather than replace the entire awning. It will be a solid metal.
Mr. Strayer said in the past we have had signs painted on the drop or top of the awning. The applicant realizes that but for economic considerations, he is requesting this design. The awning is dark forest green and the lettering can be black on white or vice versa.
Members had no problems with this project.
Finding of Fact: MR. WILKENFELD MOVED TO APPROVE THE FINDINGS FOR ITEMS A AND B UNDER NEW BUSINESS, AND WE FIND THEM CONSISTENT WITH RELEVANT SECTIONS OF THE CODE AS OUTLINED IN THE VILLAGE PLANNER'S MEMO OF APRIL 24, 2006. MR. MITCHELL SECONDED, AND MOTION WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.
Adjournment: 7:12 p.m.
Next Meetings: May 8 (Mr. Mitchell will be absent) and May 27 (may be rescheduled)
