With nine public hearings to be held, the Goldsboro City Council will have a full docket at its meeting Monday night, which includes two requests for conditional use permits for one existing and one new pub downtown.

One hearing will be held for expansion of the Flying Shamrock located on the west side of North John and Mulberry streets. The new space will include seating for 96 people, three pool tables, storage, offices and restrooms. Hours of operation for the new space will be from 4:30 to 11 p.m. Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, 4:30 p.m. to 1 a.m. on Fridays, noon to 1 a.m. Saturdays and noon to 11 p.m. Sundays.

Allen F. Redmon is requesting a permit for property located on the east side of North Center Street between Walnut and Mulberry streets. The proposed bar will be called "Redmon's on Center Street Pub and Grill." Maximum occupancy for the site will be 50 people.

The other two conditional use permit hearings will involve child care facilities.

The first is for property located on the north side of Royall Avenue between Wayne Memorial Drive and Jefferson Avenue where 35 children will be served by the operation and a large outdoor play area is included as part of the site plan.

The second is for property located on the north side of West Elm Street between H.V. Brown lane and the Seaboard Coastline Railroad, a site that is utilized by Antioch Missionary Baptist Church and an existing day care center that serves 50 children. The church has proposed to use the property to add onto the east and rear of the church building for classrooms, accommodating an estimated 36 more children.

Four hearings will be held for rezoning requests.

The first will be for Family Works Psychological Center to change property located on the southwest corner of East Ash Street and North Andrews Avenue from residential to office-residence. The property will serve as a doctor's office. The office-residence zoning district is designed for low-intensity business uses that are next to and compatible with existing residential neighborhoods.

The second hearing will be held for property located on the east side of Thoroughfare Road between Central Heights Road and Millers Chapel Road. Keith Mitchell is requesting to change the property's zoning from residential to office and institutional.

The third hearing will be held to consider rezoning property located on the south side of East Ash Street between Carriage Road and Meadow Road from a single-family residential and noise overlay zone to a more dense, multi-family residential unit residential and noise overlay zone. With the square footage of the property, up to seven residential units could be constructed on the property.

The last rezoning hearing will be held to change property on the south side of East Ash Street between Barrow Court and Malloy Street from residential and office and institutional to neighborhood business conditional district. The applicant hasn't yet indicated a use for the site, but a conditional district has been requested.

The last public hearing of the night will be held for residents to express concerns regarding housing and non-housing needs related to the Commun-ity Development Block Grant and HOME Investment Partnerships programs.

In other business, council members will discuss reversing a condemnation request, closing city streets for the Sunrise Kiwanis Club's 30th Greater Goldsboro Road Run and financial items.

The first April council meeting will be held in the newly renovated City Hall.
