Oh, and there’s a Forsyth County Commissioners budget workshop, special meeting AND commissioner briefing all today. Yep, they’re separate events.

Preservation Greensboro is holding a press conference at 1:27 p.m. — Ivan Saul Cutler seems to be a big fan of unusual start times — to announce a major material gift from Sherwin-Williams. It is also to declare that Mayor Nancy Vaughan has said the Blandwood Mansion is a natural location for major economic development announcements (I know, not that exciting, given there isn’t an actual big announcement right now).
