Bike and Pedestrian Committee

About Us

The Board of Aldermen has established a Bicycle and Pedestrian advisory committee to provide support and assistance as it relates to the New Bern Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan, approved in October of 2022. The Committee was formed to guide the implementation of the plan. Members will be responsible for evaluating progress of the plan, offering input to the Board, assisting City staff in applying for grants, organizing related events and educational activities, and advocating for local project funding.

The committee is comprised of five voting members, each appointed by the Board of Aldermen. Voting members will serve staggered terms with each term being three years. Vacancies will be filled by the Board of Aldermen. The Board of Aldermen appointed Jessica Rhue, Director of Development Services to serve as the Chairman of this committee. Other members include Alderman Bob Brinson, Board of Aldermen appointee; Deanna Trebil, MPO Administrator and representatives from the City’s Public Works and Parks and Recreation departments.

A majority of the voting members of the Advisory Committee will constitute a quorum. Meetings will be no less than quarterly, with special meetings being called by the Chairman as needed. The Committee generally meets the first Monday every other month at 5:30PM in the Development Services Conference Room at 303 First Street. These meetings are open to the public. The 2024 meeting calendar has been established as follows:
