Notice is hereby given that the Roanoke Rapids City Council will hold an evidentiary public hearing on Tuesday, June 6, 2017 at 5:15 p.m. at the Lloyd Andrews City Meeting Hall located at 700 Jackson Street to hear the following item(s):

1. A Conditional Use Permit request from Michelle Newsome Taylor (Applicant) and Becker Village Mall, LLC (Property Owner) to conduct Electronic Gaming Operations (Internet Sweepstakes) in Suite 145 of Becker Village Mall at 1620 E. 10th Street (Halifax County Tax Parcel 0900046). The requested use for electronic gaming operations is proposed to operate daily from 8:00am – 2:00 am. The tenant space was previously occupied as “Goldmine.”

The decision to determine if the project 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.


The Proposed 2017-2018 Budget for the City of Roanoke Rapids has been submitted to the City Council and is on display for public inspection in the Office of the City Clerk (2nd floor of City Hall). A public hearing on the proposed budget is scheduled for the June 6, 2017 City Council Meeting to be held at 5:15 p.m. at the Lloyd Andrews City Meeting Hall.
