Goldsboro City Council determined a date for the redistricting public hearing during its work session Monday evening.
The hearing will be during the May 2 council meeting in City Hall at 7 p.m. and will allow for public input into the lines dividing the city limits into its six districts. Each citizen at the hearing will be permitted to speak for a maximum of three minutes on the district lines.
The 2010 census data indicated that a realignment of districts was needed to maintain a universal deviation of population density and racial balance. Planning Director Randy Guthrie presented the proposed districts to the council April 4.
