City Council to meet Monday

Two presentations will highlight the Goldsboro City Council's 5 p.m. work session ahead of its regular meeting at 7 p.m. Monday.

Wayne County Chamber of Commerce President Marian Mason will address the council, sharing the Chamber's annual report, while a representative from the city's Finance Department will discuss Goldsboro's Three Year Capital Needs.

The council's consent agenda contains five recommendations from the Planning Commission concerning conditional use permits and site and landscape plans.

Council is expected to approve the permits for A.B. Daughety's Internet gaming facility on New Hope Road and David Simmons' private cemetery, as well as the site and landscape plans for the Community Church of Christ at the corner of Harrell and Slocumb streets and Longhorn Steakhouse on North Berkeley Boulevard. A revision to the site and landscape plans for Toyota of Goldsboro is also slated for approval which alters the requirements for trees and buffers on the property.

An appointment to the Historic District Commission and approval of the acquisition of state controlled substance tax remittance rounds out the consent agenda.

The council also will consider the rezoning request of the southeast corner of the Wayne Memorial Drive and Tommy's Road intersection.

The rezoning request came under fire earlier this month from residents of that area and parents of children who attend nearby Tommy's Road Elementary School concerned about traffic and safety.

A representative of Redco Properties, Tands' real estate company, said his company had an option on the property and aimed to bring a Bojangle's to the intersection.

Last week the Planning Commission decided to alter the rezoning request from general business to shopping center and recommended the rezoning be approved as amended.
