The Board of Aldermen will meet on July 9, 2024 at 6 p.m. in the City Hall courtroom in downtown New Bern, NC.

Members of the public will be given four minutes to address the board during the “Request and Petition of Citizens” portion of the meeting.

On the consent agenda, the board will consider scheduling a public hearing to rezone 3402 and 3402A Trent Road from split Commercial C3/C4 to Commercial C3.

A representative for the applicant, Tarheel Building Systems, Inc. told the New Bern Planning and Zoning Board that the back of the parcel was going to be used for conditioned mini storage.

According to the meeting packet, the Board of Aldermen will consider calling a public hearing to change the approval process for major subdivisions. Currently, the Planning and Zoning board approves plats for large developments. The change would give the zoning administrator the authority to review and approve major subdivision plats.
