PUBLIC NOTICE - VILLAGE OF GRANVILLE
The Granville Village Council adopted the following legislation at the November 17, 2010 regular meeting:
Ordinance No. 20-10, An Ordinance to Amend Section 303.03(b)(3) of the Codified Ordinances of the Village of Granville to Establish a 35mph Speed Limit on Lancaster Road and River Road, and Declaring an Emergency
This ordinance was initiated to bring the newly annexed roadways of Lancaster Road and River Road into compliance with Village code. State law and Village Code provide that the speed limit on through roads located outside the business district should be 35 miles per hour. The ordinance establishes a 35mph speed limit on the portion of Lancaster and River Roads in the Village effective immediately upon passage. This ordinance was adopted as an emergency measure for the immediate preservation of the public health, safety, and welfare of the inhabitants of the Municipality
Resolution No. 10-46, A Resolution to Reconfirm the Adoption of a Scenic Byway Management Plan through the State of Ohio Department of Transportation
This resolution reconfirms Council commitment to securing the adoption of a scenic byway management plan from the State of Ohio Department of Transportation. In conjunction with Granville Township and the Licking County Commissioners, the Village Council is requesting that ODOT reconsider the previously submitted plan that was denied in August 2010. The plan was originally prepared for the Village and Granville Township as part of the update to the Comprehensive Plan. The plan identifies roads that possess intrinsic qualities of an archaeological, cultural, historical, recreational or scenic nature; and over 40 miles of roads in the Village and Township may be eligible for scenic byway status. The proposed scenic byways include all or portions of Loudon Street, Burg Street, State Route 661, Hankinson Road, Cambria Mill Road, Welsh Hills Road, State Route 16/Old Columbus Road, Silver Street, State Route 37 and Broadway/Newark-Granville Road. Broadway/Newark-Granville Road runs through the center of the Village and provides the physical and historical connection that links the proposed byways into several loops radiating from the center of the Village. The Ohio Scenic Byway program promotes appreciation for and the enjoyment of roads that have retained a special character. It is an honorary program that does not place any specific burden on property owners along the roads. Rather, it provides a framework for preserving and promoting the special character of the roads for enjoyment by the public.
