GROUPS OFFER PROJECTS FOR CITY TO CONSIDER

Projects ranging from the prosaic to the panoramic were suggested to the Greensboro City Council and Greensboro Planning Board Thursday evening at a public hearing as the council begins planning long-range building priorities as part of creating a budget for 1990-91.

Proposals included completion of Murrow Boulevard through southeastern Greensboro, building a new picnic shelter at Fairview Park and improving a small park on Braceywood Road that nearby resident Grant Mastin called ``little more than an overgrown cat box.'The council also reviewed the six-year plan as adopted last year; city staff are recommending few changes.

More than $267 million would be spent through mid-1996, with the bulk of it to be paid for with city bonds - $87 million already approved by city voters and $138 million to be approved in the future.

Between $33 million and $65 million in bonds could be placed on the Nov. 6 ballot for Greensboro Coliseum improvements, a new or expanded main library and expanded neighborhood redevelopment.

Among those making presentations were members of the Greensboro Youth Soccer Association, which will serve as host for a 12-state regional tournament here in 1992.

The association is raising private money to complete a soccer complex at Bryan Park. Members showed officials a videotape they are using to help solicit money, although they said the video was for information only and that they were not seeking city money.

``Bless you,' said Mayor Vic M. Nussbaum Jr.
