At the regular meetings on February 20, 2013 and March 6, 2013, the Granville Village Council scheduled a public hearing and request for public comment for March 20, 2013 at 7:30pm in the Granville Village Council Chambers, 141 East Broadway, for the following:
Ordinance No. 05-2013, An Ordinance Adopting Permanent Zoning (Village Gateway District) for the Raccoon Creek LLC, Property on Columbus Road and Weaver Road
This ordinance would establish permanent zoning for the Raccoon Creek, LLC property owned by Metropolitan Partners and located at the northeast intersection of Columbus Road and Weaver Drive. The property owners have requested that the property be zoned "Village Gateway District." The Granville Planning Commission, after conducting a public hearing on the request on December 10, 2012, determined that the property is suitable for the "Village Gateway District" zoning designation and recommended that the property by zoned accordingly.
Ordinance No. 06-2013, An Ordinance to Amend Sections 1157.14, 1164.04, 1169.03 and 1185.01 of the Codified Ordinances of the Village of Granville, Ohio
This ordinance would remove inconsistencies and streamline the general zoning process. The proposed modifications to the Zoning Code were recommended for approval by the Planning Commission at their January 28 meeting. The recommended revisions are as follows:
1) Section 1157.14, Accessory Structures (General Zoning Regulations): Adopt the same requirements for accessory structures within the Planned Unit Development District (i.e. Bryn Du area, Erinwood area, Village Green area), Suburban Business District (where housing could be permitted) and the Village Gateway District (where housing could be permitted) as they currently exist within the Suburban Residential District and Village District.
2) Section 1163.03, Development Standards (Suburban Residential District): Remove the requirement that any new structure would require review and approval by the Planning Commission. By removing this requirement, applicants would be required to receive administrative approval through, but would no longer be delayed for a month or more.
3) Section 1169.03, Development Standards (Institutional District): Removal of the Planning Commission review and approval requirements similar to Section 1163.03 above. In addition, the commercial area would also be required to submit for construction engineering review as well (i.e. building additions, new buildings, new parking areas, etc.). The proposed change would not affect the lower "Fine Arts Quad" area, which is zoned Village Institutional District, only the upper portion of the campus and areas along North Pearl Street.
4) Section 1185.01, Swimming Pool Requirements; Definitions (Swimming Pools): Clarification of language regarding the height at which a fence or wall shall be erected surrounding a swimming pool. The current Code language is ambiguous about height as it states "shall be so walled or fenced as to prevent uncontrolled access." This leaves the determination for what the required height of the wall or fence should be to the Village Planner/Zoning Inspector.
Ordinance No. 07-2013, An Ordinance to Accept Certain Infrastructure Improvements Associated with the Waterline Extension Across the Frontage of 1919 Lancaster Road in Granville, Ohio, for Public Maintenance and Operation by the Village of Granville
This ordinance would authorize the Village to accept the infrastructure improvements installed along Lancaster Road in connection with the Mill Race District LLC development.
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.
