In the first Appeal heard tuesday he said the approval by Steven Bloomfield the assistant director of City planning was improper. The second Appeal contended that the revised site plan submitted by Koetzle after Bloomfield a approval imposed restrictions pm the construction had not met those restrictions. Koetzle has been granted a zone change under the City a planned unit development pud ordinance. It is the first time the ordinance has been used resulting in some confusion about procedures for hearings and appeals in the Case. The hearings on both appeals were held in succession and group Given Chapel in sunday service founding ceremonies were held sunday for the five mile Chapel in Anderson township after the Chapel was deeded to the five mile Chapel society from the methodist Church. Nancy Bissinger a member erf the society which has been organized to restore the Chapel said about 125 people attended the ceremonies filling the Small Chapel at 6977 five mile Road for the 3 . Ceremony. The Chapel was built in 1844 by Anderson townships Early settlers and was recently placed on the National Register of historic places. A Small graveyard on the Chapel grounds includes a Marker which features Bas Relief sculptures of the Markley family. It is signed by prominent sculptor Thomas of Hare. Bissinger said 98 people signed the Register at the ceremony but More were in attendance than those who signed in As guests.

A the acoustics in there Are great and when everyone joined in it sounded just the five mile Chapel society is attempting to raise funds for the restoration and maintenance of the Chapel and is currently trying to its. Membership and contributions. A a we be got to raise quite a bit of Money to do the things we should do to make the Chapel the kind of place it should be a Bissinger said. A we have about one third of what we need so three projects for the Chapel Are top. Priority for the society. First Bissinger said drainage problems around the Structure must be solved before any other work can be done. The Chapel currently has some water leakage which experts have said should be solved before other work is started. Ground water around the building does not Drain efficiently enough without help she said necessitating the outside work second the structures roof must be replaced she said the Chapel now has two roofs he original shake with a slate roof built Over it. Both will have to come off she said and a new shake roof will be built. A a that a probably the biggest Job a Bissinger said. A it will be expensive to take the old roofs off and even More expensive to build the new one. That a where the big Money will come the third project the society plans to undertake is the restoration of the Chapel Belfry. She said the Steeple while a not ready to crumble is weak and needs repair. A we Hope to have All three projects completed this summer. There is already some leakage into the Church and something should be done to it As soon As possible a Bissinger said. The society plans to encourage use of the Chapel for an assortment of occasions and will ask a donation for its use. Most of the Money for the Chapel restoration however will hopefully come from new members of the society Bissinger said. A a we re hoping people will use it for weddings meetings and any use consistent with its use As a Church. Retreats especially for youth groups would be great a she said a we wont charge a set fee for its use but we certainly will ask for donations. Its one Way we Hope to make the society is soliciting new members she said hoping to attract More membership donations. A we would very much like people to join. Besides the fact that we obviously need Money we need people to work on All of our projects. The More people we get interested the easier we can approach the goals we be set so one fund raising project the society is currently promoting Bissinger said is asking contributors to buy bundles of shake for the new roof for a $45 contribution a we would really like to get other people As interested in this project As we Are a she said. A was soon As people see the Chapel they become interested in it and realize its Well Worth saving and restoring.
