About Us 
Welcome to the City of New Bern's Department of Development Services. Our offices are located at 303 First Street.  Our primary focus is providing assistance to the community in developing plans, ordinances, implementing projects, and administering codes that produce orderly growth while maintaining community character and New Bern’s small town charm.

Want to Serve?
Citizen volunteers are important to this Department’s mission. Our staff provides support to four citizen boards: Planning and Zoning Board, Board of Adjustment, Historic Preservation Commission, and the Greater Duffyfield Residents Council. If you are interested in volunteering or have questions and comments, please contact Development Services or complete and submit this short form and a city representative will contact you when an opening occurs.
