Zoning Board Okays Two Variances Here \ Two variances have been approved by North Canton ZoriingBoard of Appeals regarding a jewelry store and a building addition. Both passed by 4-0 vote of the board. Michael Karlo was granted a variance to allow opening of ajewelrystore at the southeast corner pf Bachtsl andS. MainStreet. A request also was granted to Melvin Ripple for an addition to His home at 824 Clearmount Ave. SE. Hi II id n nt^iiOpl I 1(11 Id rea Apartment Co Some 35-40 southeast area residents gathered at the Monday, May 5 meeting of the North Canton Planning Commission to show their disapproval of the multi-family group development to be called Meadowbrook Park Apartments, which Dwight Barnhart plans to construct on the corner of Sunford SE and Schneider SE. The land, which was rezoned in Plain Township in 1964 to multi-family from single family, was annexed into North Canton from Plain Township in late 1966 or early 1967 un- der the multi-familyzoning. Mr. Barnhart explained to the City Planners that the contour of the apartment buildings will be low, featuring flat roofs. The bottom half of the buildings will be brick and the top half Will be asphalt brown shingle. ■ "We want to blend the structure around the surrounding neighborhood," stated Mr. Barnhart. ' Mr. Barnhart said that his company owns, manages and maintains all the apartments they build and they are strictly apartment iowners and builders. He stated that he wants Meadowbrook Park Apartments to be a private dev-' ' elopment, not open visually to the eye. There will be a play area in the center for children and each- apartment will feature an individual patio. The 21-units will have two bedrooms each and wili rent for around $250 a month. There will be one 6-unit structure, two4-un- it structures and one 7-un- '• it"*stnicture. Eachapart- ■rnent will have two floors.. Each unit will have two parking spaces - one covered and one, uncovered. Bob Kolopus of Hammon* tree & Associates, engines rs for Mr. Barnhart, ' stated that they have plans for a complete underground storm sewer, which will not only help the drainage problem for the 21/2 acres the apartments will be located on, but will also help the drainage problem of residents on Sunford and Schneider. The storm sewer plan was tobe presented before the Storm Sewer Committee of Council Tuesday, May 6. i If approved, drainage easements Will be necessary and four or fiveprop- erty owners in the area would have to give the City drainage easement.Water from. 27 acres now drains into the now existing trunk which this complex would be a part of. "Assuming you can't get the city's backing1 on your storm sewer plan, do you have an alternative plan?" asked William Plasket, chairman of the North Canton Planning Commission. "We do have another plan which won't solve, any drainage problems except ours," commented Mr. Kolopus. "Apparently the neighbors feel this plan will not help the water problem," stated Plasket. "I will be glad to speak with any of the neighbors who feel they have a better solution," stated City Engineer Dennis Flechtner, who feels the developers engineer's plans will solve the drainage problem. "I don't feel drainage is the problem ofthe Planning Commission,'' statedJ. Edward Juenemann* a member of the Commission, "and I feel the developer has met all the requirements." "i sympathize with the residents, but I think the developer has met all requirements," Mr. Juene- mann added. "The location of the sewer line can be adjusted," said Mr. Kolopus,"however, the line we chose (which would run across the back yards of 4 or 5 residents) is the Shortest distancebe- tween the existing trunk line and our property and is also the most economical." Attorney .yincerit Bam- aby, a representative of some '.of the property own* ers, stated that the residents feel the drainage , problem is only one of many problems which caused them to voice their concern. He said they are also concerned about the traffic hazards. "All of that was considered and established at the time of zoning in 1964, "Mr. Flechtner told the attorney. Planners agreed to accept the plans for the development, excluding land- s cap ing, providing the problem of drainage is solved by an adequate sewer system. "I do want to make this a good development,"stated Mr. Barnhart, "that's why I'm here." Planners will consider the landscaping portion of the development at a special session at 6:45p.m.before the Monday, June 2 regular meeting. Immediately following their acceptance of the plans for the Meadowbrook Park Apartment .complex, Ward 3 Councilmp- Ted Scheffler requested pin ners to consider rezoning the four lots In question from multi-family to single family residential with • an R-50 zoning. "The history of this zoning is filled with mistakes," stated Scheffler. According to Mr. Scheffler, the property was re- zones in 1964 in aperiod of 32 days, which is legal in Plain Township, however, it takes 90 days in North Canton. In 1966 or early 1967, the whole area was annexed into North Canton. At this time the four lots in question were zoned multi-family by Plain Township. Planners and Council made a mistake because they zoned this area single family and later had to amend this when they found out the zoning was multi- family. The surroundingproper- ty owners .made a mistake because they didn't fightfor zoning. The owners of the four lots made a mistake by letting it go through with no protest. Council corrected the owners mistake, their mistake and Planners mistake. "This land has had four zonings in 11 years," explained Mr. Scheffler, "so how can property ownes keep track if the City Planners can't even keep track?" "How can we fault (Continued to Page 2) Parade Set North Canton American Legion Post 419 is now takr ing applications of groups interested in marching in the North Canton Memorial Day Parade May 26 beginning at 9 a.m. Featured speaker this year is State Senator Dav- _ id Johnson.

Sen.Johnson Reports From The Capital GOVERNOR AND LT. GOVERNOR WILL RUN AS A TEAM! After a heated debate on the floor of the Senate SJR 4 was passed. This Resolution would amend the Constitution of theStateofOhio to require the Lt. Governor to be elected jointly with the Governor. The Resolution outlines the procedure for election of the team. , The Resolution states that inthe General Election for Governor and Lt. Governor, one voteshallbe cast jointly for the candidate nominated by the same political party. It further states that the General Assembly shall provide by law for the separate nomination for candidates for Governor and Lt. Governor. If accepted by both Houses the Resolution would go.to the people for their vote in the November election. , LEASING OF MOTOR VEHICLES ALLOWED COUNTY COMMISSIONERS AM H3. 84 passed the Senate this week. The stated purpose of this bill is to , permit Boards of County Commissioners to lease vehicles for county offices, • if leasing appears to be more economical than purchasing vehicles. In an opinion released in 1955 by the Attorney General of Ohio, itwas statedthat the Boards of CountyCom- missioners had no authority to lease motor vehicles for use in different departments under their jurisdiction, Under existing law the County Commissioners have permission only to lease motor vehicles for County Engineers and their assistants. .This bill permits the County Commissioners to lease motor vehicles for use by any de- par tm en t, commission, board, office or agency under their supervision. In leasing vehicles the Board of Commissioners would have to abide by the statutory competitive bidding procedure. This is a good bill in my opinion, because it will offer the County Officials another tool to try to save taxpayers money by allowing competitive bidding to lease vehicles. (Continued to Page 2) .
