Social District Committee Postpones Proposal — To Be Taken Up at an Undetermined Date

Middle Street in Downtown New Bern

After meeting with the public and hearing about trash problems and late-night behavioral issues in downtown and adjacent neighborhoods, the Social District Committee believes that our immediate priority should be focused on solutions to these issues.

Although the committee plans to revisit social districts at a later time, we have heard the concerns of downtown residents and any future proposal would address those concerns.
