South Boston Council meets Tuesday / October 14, 2019
Meeting a day later than usual because of the Columbus Day holiday, members of South Boston Town Council will gather for their regular monthly meeting on Tuesday night at 7 p.m. at Council Chambers on Yancey Street.

The October agenda includes a public hearing on a special use permit application to allow dwelling units in a B-3 central business district. The dwellings are planned for 616 North Main Street, at a renovated home owned by Joseph and Jami Cirotti.

The Cirottis intend to convert the brick home across from Jeffress Street into four single-bedroom apartments, pending approval of the special use permit. The Town Planning Commission has recommended approval of their application.

In other business, Council members will consider a report by the town Board of Viewers to close a public right-of-way to make room for the SOVA Innovation Hub that is being built by Mid-Atlantic Broadband in downtown.

Council members also will be asked to adopt a resolution endorsing the ballot initiative for a 1 cent sales tax to support school construction in Halifax County.

The 7 p.m. meeting will include a citizen comment period.
