Goldsboro City Council will have five public hearings at its meeting Monday night.

The first will be involve a request to change the name of Spring Court to Granville Place, while the second and third will discuss rezoning requests.

Auto Investments LLC has asked to change property located on the southwest corner of North Oak Forest Road and Summit Road from general business to highway business.

The zone change would allow for a variety of commercial uses that target the traveling public and would permit a high-rise advertising sign on a controlled access highway. A use for the current vacant lot hasn't been specified.

The company is also requesting to be annexed into the city limits, and a public hearing for the contiguous annexation will be required.

A public hearing will be held on a request by Kathy Woodard to change property located on the north side of East Ash Street between Piedmont Airline Road and Oak Forest Road from residential to neighborhood business.

The neighborhood business zone would allow commercial uses that have a low impact on surrounding residential development. A use for the property has not been specified, but it is currently used as a real estate office.

The fourth and fifth public hearings will cover conditional use permits, the first of which is a request from Bobby Reavis to amend a previously issued permit to move display vehicle and customer/employee parking spaces associated with the used car lot to the adjacent lot to provide additional parking for other uses previously approved.

The last public hearing will be on a conditional use permit request made by William Painter to allow the operation of a child care facility in conjunction with First Assembly Church.

The property is located on the south side of Summit Road between North Oak Forest Road and Berkeley Boulevard. The proposed facility will be included in the 25,900-square-foot church and will serve 20 infants ranging in age from 6 weeks to 12 months.

The council's work session will be at 4:30 p.m. in the large conference room in the City Hall Addition. Council will meet in the original council chambers at 7 p.m.
