Six presentations are slated for the Goldsboro City Council's work session Monday at 5 p.m. in the City Hall Annex, including a follow-up from Planning Director Randy Guthrie on street resurfacing.

Council members asked at the March 19 meeting about the addition of several roads to the city's list tapped for resurfacing.

Other presentations will feature discussions of downtown's holiday decorations, the reconsideration of a site plan for apartments on Malloy Street and a discussion of surplusing vacuum sewer equipment.

Parks and Recreation Director Scott Barnard also is expected to speak on tree removal and stump grinding at the golf course, as well as the management of the Veterans Memorial Park.

Presentations during the regular meeting at 7 p.m. in Historic City Hall will include representatives from Disabled American Veterans and the National Day of Prayer.

Three public hearings are scheduled, with two concerning rezoning requests.

Soldiers for Christ Ministry has requested the northeast corner of the intersection of South Slocumb Street and Day Circle be rezoned from general business to office and institutional.

The second rezoning request comes from FLO-T, LLC concerning the north side of Lockhaven Drive between Gloucester Road and Wayne Memorial Drive. The request is to rezone it from R-1 residential to R-9 residential.

Another public hearing is scheduled to discuss the closing of Poplar Street from Newsome Street to its northern end. The stretch of road is used primarily as parking for New Stoney Hill Church.

The consent agenda contains an item which seeks to allow Parks and Recreation to accept a donation of trail construction funding and the closing for the 34th annual Greater Goldsboro Road Run. Two items of federal property forfeiture and departmental reports round out the consent agenda.

The sole item requiring individual action concerns the rezoning request for the southeast corner of the intersection of North Berkeley Boulevard and Ridgecrest Drive. The request seeks to rezone the land from office and institutional to neighborhood business to allow for either a retail store, a restaurant or some combination of the two.
