The Greenville City Council is set to consider three rezoning requests and issuing revenue bonds for stormwater system upgrades during its meeting tonight.

Agenda items during the 6:30 meeting include three public hearings on re-zoning requests, before voting on two matters of new business. The council will also have an opportunity for appointments to several city boards and commissions.

The council will vote on a bond order resolution providing for the issuance and sale of stormwater system revenue bonds not to exceed $15 million from the North Carolina Local Government commission. The council approved action to file an application for the bonds at its Dec. 14. 

The rezoning requests include:

■ An ordinance to annex Parkside Bluffs, Section 2, Phase 1A, Lot 4 involving 3.329 acres located at the current terminus of Parkside Drive.

■ An ordinance requested by Amanda M. Garris and Karl B. Manning and others to rezone 21.7 acres located between Dickinson Avenue Extension and Greenville Boulevard and 800 feet west of Williams Road from RA20 (Residential-Agricultural) and CG (General Commercial) to R6 (Residential [High Density Multi-family]).

■ An ordinance requested by James F. Hopf and Amy A. Wells, trustees of the Philip E. Carroll trust, to rezone 1.0025 acres located along the southern right-of-way of Pactolus Highway and east of Mumford Road from RA20 (Residential-Agricultural) to OR (Office-Residential [High Density Multi-family]).

Also at the meeting, the council is scheduled to vote on extending a lease with the Greenville Industrial-Eppes High School Alumni Heritage Society for a portion of the C.M. Eppes Recreational Center for another three years.
