PUBLIC HEARING NOTICE
Notice is hereby given that the Roanoke Rapids City Council will hold an evidentiary public hearing on Tuesday, August 15, 2023, at 5:30 p.m. at the Lloyd Andrews City Meeting Hall located at 700 Jackson Street to hear the following item(s):
1. A Special Use Permit (SUP) request* from Anthony Floyd (Applicant & Property Owner) for a Restaurant, Bar & Grill with Live Music at 1037-1039 Roanoke Avenue (Halifax Co. Parcel 0903084). Currently the business known as “Crickets” operates as a Restaurant and Bar/ Dart Room, Live music requires a Special Use Permit.
*The decision to determine if the Special Use Permit Request meets the standards is quasi-judicial and subject to procedural due process requirements. Once an applicant makes the showing that the standards have been met, the burden shifts to those who oppose permit issuance to present countervailing substantial, competent, and material evidence that the standards would not be met. When there is substantial evidence on both sides, the City Council makes its determination as to which is correct when making its final decision.
Related information is available for public inspection in the Planning and Development office at the J. Reuben Daniel City Hall, 1040 Roanoke Avenue. Any persons, firms, organizations, or corporations interested in this matter are urged to attend the meeting.
The City of Roanoke Rapids will provide reasonable accommodations and services for any qualified disabled person interested in attending the meeting. To request the above you may call the Planning and Development Office at (252) 533-2844 no later than three (3) days prior to the date of the meeting.
