The Greenville City Council met on Thursday night to quickly and unanimously vote to approve two rezoning issues, the extension of a lease with Greenville Industrial-Eppes High School Alumni Heritage Society and the issuance revenue bonds for the city’s stormwater system. 

In a less than 40 minutes, the council approved various appointments to boards and commission before proceeding to vote on two zoning issues. A third zoning request that was scheduled to be voted on, for the voluntary annexation of 3.3 acres located at the current terminus of Parkside Drive, was removed from the agenda at the applicant’s request. 

The first request, 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 residential-agricultural and general commercial to residential — high density multi-family, was approved unanimously by the council with little discussion. 

Members also unanimously approved 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 residential-agricultural to office-residential — high density multi-family. John Day, who was representing the requests said the proprietor planned on revitalizing an aging concrete building at the site, for use as a base of operations for a plumbing company. 

The council also unanimously voted to on extend 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.

Members approved the 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.
