     The City of New Bern is undertaking a bold new effort at flood mitigation and resiliency planning and we need
     your help. 
Residents and visitors remember the devastating effects of hurricane Florence in eastern North Carolina, and the
     images of hurricane Laura’s devastation in Texas and Louisiana illustrate the need for hazard mitigation and resiliency planning
     in coastal communities.  

     Earlier this year, the City began working with our consultant partners on a multi-phase, long term hazard mitigation and
     resiliency plan that will include significant public input. Once it is complete, the City hopes this plan will become a model for
     other coastal communities. We invite you to be a part of this endeavor as we work together to plan for New Bern’s future. 

    Here’s How You Can Get Involved:

     Complete our public participation survey! It will only take a few minutes. Access the survey here. The survey launched
     today and will close on September 24th, 2020. Encourage your family and friends to participate too! We will post the results
     once the survey closes.
