The Greensboro City Council will hold its one business meeting of the month on Tuesday, March 21 in the Katie Dorsett Council Chamber beginning at 5 p.m.

While the meeting officially begins at 5 p.m., that start time is to hold a closed session and the public portion of the meeting will not begin until 5:30 p.m. If the closed session runs long the public portion of the meeting may start later, but the council by agreement does not start the public portion before 5:30 p.m.

Also, a special note to Summerfield residents, there is no public forum at this meeting.  People are invited to speak on agenda items but may not speak on non-agenda items.  The next meeting with a public forum where people can speak on the topic of their choosing – like a proposed de-annexation in Summerfield – is at the Tuesday, April 4 meeting beginning at 5:30 p.m.

The consent agenda has 17 items, which are purportedly routine and noncontroversial items that are not discussed and voted on with one vote for entire consent agenda.

There are three requests for annexation and original zoning on the agenda.

The annexation and original zoning requests are:

  • 4.8 acres on Kallamdale Road to be annexed and zoned Conditional District – Residential Multi-family – 12 (CD-RM-12)
  • 39.2 acres at 6450 and 6454 US 29 North to be annexed and zoned Conditional District – Single-family Residential – 5 (CD-R-5).
  • 4 acres at 9064 W. Market St. to be annexed and zoned Light Industrial (LI)

The City Council will also consider authorizing a low income homeowner assistance pilot program.  This program would grant a property tax refund to low income homeowners who meet the criteria.  The amount of the refund would essentially eliminate the 30 percent tax increase the City Council implemented in 2022 for these low income homeowners.

The City Council tentatively gave its approval for this program at the March 16 City Council work session.
