Public hearing on parking to be set

Council expects large crowd; location not determined

    The Statesboro City Council is expected to set a public hearing to allow residents express their thoughts on the proposed front-yard parking ordinance being considered by the city.
    The proposed date of the hearing is Monday, February 26 at 6 p.m. The location for the hearing hasn’t been set yet as officials expect a large crowd. The meeting could be at city hall, though there have been discussions of holding it at the fellowship hall at Pittman Park United Methodist Church to accommodate the crowd.
    The council already tabled a scheduled vote on an ordinance that would have limited parking to only on a paved driveway or on the side or rear of the house and also would have capped the total driveway space in a yard to 25 percent.
    It was tabled to allow the council more time to look into the matter as well as to allow public input on the issue.
    Other items on the city’s agenda include:
    • a request to rezone property at 204 Best Street from R-15 to Commercial Retail to allow a group daycare center;
    • a request to rezone property at 605 Brannen Street from Office to Commercial Retail;
    • a resolution authorizing the sale of two lots in the Statesboro Pointe Subdivision to Habitat for Humanity of Bulloch County;
    • a resolution regarding the fees and charges to the finance department;
    • a resolution to adopt the second budget amendment to the 2007 budget;
    • a resolution declaring certain property surplus and authorizing its disposal;
    • a motion to set the annual budget planning retreat;
    • a motion to award a bid in the amount of $17,040 to Kustom Signals Inc. for four police vehicle cameras;
    • a motion to approve the renumbering of the addresses on North Street and Overland Street as requested by Bulloch County E911 to correct duplicate numbers.
    The meeting will be at 9 a.m. in the city hall council room.
