PUBLIC NOTICE OF LEGISLATION - VILLAGE OF GRANVILLE
The Granville Village Council adopted the following legislation at the June 1, 2011 regular meeting:
Ordinance No. 11-11, An Ordinance to Amend Sections 1159.01, 1159.02, 1159.03, 1159.04, 1159.05, 1159.07 and Repeal Existing Section 1159.06 of the Codified Ordinances of the Village of Granville, Ohio Pertaining to Village District
This ordinance updates permitted uses in the Village District by including counseling offices under business and professional offices and adding compatible nonprofit, institutional uses to address service organizations such as the Historical Museum in the Village District. Another change in the ordinance is to delete the need for a change of use approval by the Planning Commission in the Village Business District. With this modification, the Planning Commission would no longer review changes of use. The applicant would still need to apply for administrative review for their Occupancy Permit, which is consistent with every zoning district in the Village. Any physical changes (i.e. exterior modifications signage, site plan improvements) would still require Planning Commission review.
Ordinance No. 13-11, An Ordinance Granting Approval and an Easement to the Granville Historical Society to Allow Construction of an Addition to a Building Located at 115 East Broadway that will Encroach onto Village Owned Property Located at 118 South Main Street
This ordinance grants an easement of encroachment to the Granville Historical Society to accommodate the proposed addition to the Historical Museum. The easement is a narrow strip 2.53 feet in width and approximately fifty feet in length and is located just west of the Historical Society’s parcel. It should be noted that a portion of the existing museum structure just to the north of this proposed addition encroaches on the Village owned property a total of 8.1 feet.
All legislation is available for review at the Village Offices during regular business hours, which are normally 8:00am - 4:30pm, Monday through Friday. The Village Offices are located at 141 East Broadway.
