Legislation Adopted August 1, 2012

The Granville Village Council adopted the following legislation at the August 1, 2012 regular meeting: 

Ordinance No. 13-2012, An Ordinance to Amend Ordinance No. 15-2005 Authorizing the Village Manager to Execute a Lease Agreement with Brews and Blues Holding LLC for Unoccupied Air Space Above the Porch at 116 East Broadway

Ordinance No. 14-2012, An Ordinance to Amend Ordinance No. 16-2005 Authorizing the Village Manager to Execute a Lease Agreement with Brews and Blues Holding LLC for a Stairway Located on Village Property at 116 East Broadway

These ordinances reduce the amount of compensation for leases between the Village of Granville and Brews for the air space above the sidewalk on the front of the building at 116 East Broadway and the stairway on the west side of the building.  Mr. Martin requested this reduction in compensation following recent negotiations for encroachment on East Broadway between the Village and Park National Bank.  There are other examples of private use of public property without compensation such as the stairway to the Kussmaul Gallery building.

Ordinance No. 15-2012, An Ordinance to Amend Section 529.07 of the Codified Ordinances of Granville

A review of Chapter 529 of the Village Code discovered that alcohol consumption, without a LCC permit, is not permitted on publicly owned places. This restriction includes most events held at the Bryn Du Mansion where alcohol is provided for many events.  This ordinance amends the Village Code to allow non LCC permit events on Village owned property with a permit from the Village Manager.   Village policy will dictate that permits will only be issued for events located at the Bryn Du Mansion property.  

Ordinance No. 16-2012, An Ordinance to Authorize the Village Manager to Execute a Contract Providing for the Sale of Water to Owens Corning Sales, LLC

The Village of Granville has provided water to Owens Corning for more than twenty years. The previous twenty year agreement expired in October of 2001. The Village has provided water following the terms of that agreement since 2001. Efforts were made to extend the contract, but no contract was ever finalized. The new agreement generally continues the provisions of the previous agreement regarding water supply from the Village to Owens Corning. The rates remain the same as currently billed, which are 1.3 times the rate charged to the Village users living within the corporate boundaries.  It is the same rate charged to the Village of Alexandria. 

Ordinance No. 17-2012, An Ordinance to Amend Sections 1171.03 and 1189.13 of the Codified Ordinances of the Village of Granville, Ohio

The proposed revisions to Village Code Sections 1171.03 and 1189.13 are part of an ongoing code modification process meant to streamline the zoning code and eliminate inconsistencies.  

1)    Section 1171.03, Development and Design Guidelines

a)    To remove the required frontage to a public right-of-way.  There are no lots within existing PUD developments that have 350 ft. of frontage, all the lots vary.  This amendment will now allow frontage to be determined by the Planning Commission during the review of development plans. 

b)    To remove the maximum height required in the Planned Commercial District (PCD).  The Planned Commercial District (PCD) is overlaid with the Suburban Business District (SBD) requirements, "See (b)(3) below."

                (b)   Additional Development Standards Relevant to PCD.

(3)   Building style and design shall be as set forth in the Building Style, Building Massing, Roof, Windows, Materials and Colors provisions of Section 1175.03 (a) of the Zoning Code (building requirements for the Suburban Business District).

This amendment will remove the maximum height requirements and allow the Planning Commission discretion to determine total height based on current SBD standards.

c)    To add a required setback for parking areas and accessory buildings. 

1.     Parking Areas/Driveways:  Currently, there are no setback requirements for parking/driveway areas in the PUD District.  The Suburban Residential Districts requires parking setbacks.  This change will require the same setback requirements for the PUD District as the SRD Districts.

2.     Accessory Buildings:  This amendment will require the same accessory building setback requirements for the PUD District as the SRD Districts.

d)    To modify the language regarding density.  There are two (2) references to density which contradict each other currently in the Code.  This amendment designates two (2) code sections relative to maximum density - one related to single family residential and one related to two-family and multi-family. 

2)       Section 1189.13, General Permit Procedures:  An amendment was made to make the language consistent with other code sections related to mailing procedures.

 Ordinance No. 18-2012, An Ordinance Assuming Maintenance Responsibility for the Full Width of Weaver Road and Columbus Road upon Annexation of Certain Territory in the Township of Granville to the Village of Granville, Agreeing to Cooperate in the Maintenance of Said Roadways, and Indemnifying the Township of Granville, and Licking County

This ordinance states the Village’s intention to assume the maintenance responsibility for the property requesting annexation along the full length of Weaver Road and Columbus Road from the Village limits to State Route 16, with the exception of the Cherry Street Bridge.  Under the annexation laws of the State of Ohio, when a proposed annexation divides or segments an existing street or highway, the municipality must agree, as a condition of the annexation, to assume maintenance responsibility for that street or highway to the nearest intersection.  

Resolution No. 2012-37, A Resolution Affirming the Decision of the Council of the Village of Granville to Affirm the Granville Planning Commission Decision on Application #2012-32 for a Wooden Fence Submitted by Dan Rogers for Property Located at 121 South Prospect Street and Adopting Decision Findings and Conclusions of Fact

During the June 20, 2012 meeting, Council voted to affirm a decision by the Granville Planning Commission that denied a wooden fence application for Dan Rogers for property located at 121 South Prospect Street. Council determined that the GPC’s findings regarding the application were in compliance and reviewed the criteria and evidence to make their decision. Assistant Law Director Mike King prepared Council’s Findings and Conclusions of Fact related to this case.  This resolution confirms the decision of the Council to affirm the decision of the GPC and adopt the findings and conclusions of fact. 

Resolution No. 2012-38, A Resolution of Appreciation and Thanks to the Granville Village Staff for their Dedication and Commitment to the Village of Granville and Residents
