A Goldsboro internet café wants to nearly triple its number of electronic gaming machines. This week, the Goldsboro City Council held a public hearing on the proposal to allow Longhorn Internet Café on U.S. 117 South, between Arrington Bridge Road and S. George Street, to increase its number of electronic gaming machines from 35 to 101.Goldsboro Planning Director Jennifer Collins explained the applicant was seeking a conditional use permit to allow for fewer paved parking spaces. While there is sufficient room for more parking spaces, the applicant does not wish to pave the site. Therefore the applicant is seeking the modification from city rules allowing them to only provide 52 parking spaces to serve the site when 152 spaces would normally be required.
