At its regular meeting on April 1, 2015, the Granville Village Council scheduled a hearing for April 15, 2015 at 7:30pm in the Granville Village Council Chambers, 141 East Broadway, for the following:
Ordinance No. 04-2015, An Ordinance to Amend Section 1165.03 of the Codified Ordinances of the Village of Granville, Ohio Pertaining to Open Space District Standards
There is currently no minimum lot frontage for parcels zoned Open Space District (OSD). This ordinance would adopt a minimum lot frontage standard to prevent the creation of lots with no public right-of-way frontage, essentially land locked parcels. All other residential zoning districts in the Village of Granville Zoning Code have a minimum lot frontage requirement to a public right-of-way. The proposed change would establish a minimum lot frontage to a public right-of-way of one hundred (100’) feet total.
Ordinance No. 05-2015, An Ordinance to Amend Section 1171.02 of the Codified Ordinances of the Village of Granville, Ohio Pertaining to Planned Unit Development
There are currently no provisions within the Planned Commercial District for single family residential. In this area, there are many single family structures that have been converted to commercial uses. However, there are still a number of properties being used residentially. These single family homes are considered to be grandfathered, nonconforming uses, meaning the property owner cannot expand the structure or build anything on the property that would be considered residential in nature (i.e. a swimming pool). With the construction of the Cherry Valley interchange, southern Cherry Valley Road will have less traffic and essentially isolated. Many of these structures may convert back to residential properties. This ordinance would divide the Planned Commercial District into Permitted and Conditionally Permitted Uses, with single family residential added as the only proposed Conditional Use.
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.
