The Goldsboro City Council held these public hearings at its meeting Monday night.

*A request by Araneum, LLC for a zoning change for property on the east and west sides of North William Street between Royall Avenue and Tarboro Street from general industry to residential. The change would permit renovation of the old Borden Manufacturing Co. buildings for approximately 65, not 129 as stated in the council agenda packet, loft condominiums. Two people spoke for the project.

*A rezoning request for property located on the northeast corner of West Grantham Street and Elizabeth Street. The applicant, Redco Properties, LLC, requested that the zoning be changed from general business and watershed protection to highway business and watershed protection to allow a wide variety of commercial and highway-oriented uses such as a high-rise advertising sign. The current zoning would not permit the sign. The property is currently vacant but was formerly the Wayne Motel. No one spoke.

*A conditional use permit requested by Bobby Reavis for property on the northwest corner of East Ash Street and Daisy Street. The site is the former location of Snipes Ford dealership. The permit would allow for the site to be used as two automobile sales offices. There will be no service or repair of automobiles at this location. A total of 14 vehicles are to be displayed on the site. Hours for the used car lot will be 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Saturday. No one spoke.

*A contiguous annexation request by Ivey Family Properties, LLC for property located on the east side of N.C. 111 South between U.S. 70 East and Ditchbank Road. No one spoke.
