Latest News
 The results of our first survey
can be found here.

275 people responded, most of whom
have been affected by a flood-related disaster.
We appreciate your feedback &
hope more residents & businesses
will engage with us as we move forward
with development of a resiliency plan.
Hurricane Florence roared ashore along the eastern North Carolina coast in September 2018 causing catastrophic damage to the Carolinas.  In New Bern alone, the storm is responsible for approximately $100 million in residential and commercial damages, mostly due to flooding. Since the storm, the City has sought many grants to repair and restore infrastructure, replace city equipment, and improve New Bern's resiliency.  Florence was just one of many storms to cause significant damage to New Bern.  A bold new effort at flood mitigation and resiliency planning has begun, and in early 2020 our consultant partners Moffat & Nichol, NEMAC + Fernleaf, and The Craig Group began working on a multi-phase, long term plan that will include significant public input.  Once it is complete, the City hopes this plan will become a model for other coastal communities.  You can find out more about this project by reading our project information sheet.
