Notice is hereby given that the following public hearing will be held remotely on Thursday, May 28, 2020, at 6:00 PM, or as soon thereafter as possible, before the Historic District Commission. The City of Gastonia will hold remote meetings during the State of Emergency that has been declared by the Governor of North Carolina and officials from Gaston County in order to help slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus. Because of the risks to the public that would arise from continued in-person meetings, the City is instructing individuals who desire to speak during public hearings to register in advance and follow the instructions for remote access. “Providing remote access to these meetings is another way the City is complying with the guidelines of the State of Emergency,” said Todd Carpenter, deputy city manager. “It is also another way for us to continue to provide access to these meetings by those who would like to attend.”
