At its regular meeting on July 18, 2012, the Granville Village Council scheduled a public hearing and request for public comment on August 1, 2012 at 7:30pm in the Granville Village Council Chambers, 141 East Broadway, for the following:
Ordinance No. 13-12, 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
This ordinance will reduce the amount of compensation for the 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. He noted that there was no compensation paid by the Bank for their encroachment. There are other examples of the Village authorizing private use of public property without compensation such as the stairway to the Kussmaul Gallery building.
Ordinance No. 15-12, 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 in 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 in Village public places with a permit from the Village Manager. Village policy will dictate that permits will only be provided for events located at the Bryn du Mansion property.
Ordinance No. 16-12, 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. The proposed agreement differs from the preceding agreement as follows:
1. This agreement is for a five year period beginning January 1, 2012.
2. The preceding agreement discussed a number of plumbing issues, which due to changes in the Village’s system and/or
Owens Corning’s system, are no longer valid and therefore were deleted from the new contract.
3. The preceding agreement called for a complex system of billing by the Village based on distribution costs and other
Village costs for pumping and treatment of the water. The new contract simply charges a rate of 1.3% times the current
Village resident rate. When Village rates increase, the Owens Corning rate increases.
4. The contract clarifies the necessity that the Village be in compliance with all Ohio and federal water quality statutes and
indicates Owens Corning’s responsibility to assist the Village in maintaining compliance.
5. The wording of the contract has been streamlined and modernized.
Ordinance No. 17-12, 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. 18-12, An Ordinance Affirming the Decision of the Council of the Village of Granville to Remand to the Board of Zoning and Building Appeals the Application for a Lot Split Submitted by Terra Nova Partners, LLC and Adopting Decision Findings and Conclusions of Fact
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.
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.
