Welcome to the City of New Bern's Department of Development Services. We hope you find this website useful. We believe citizen participation is essential to efficient and accountable government. Please take some time to browse around and let us know what you think of our site.

The Department of Development Services' 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.

Citizen volunteers are important to this Department’s mission. Our staff provides support to six citizen boards, Planning and Zoning Board, Board of Adjustment, Historic Preservation Commission, Neuse River Community Development Corporation, the Greater Duffyfield Residents Council and the Five Points Revitalization Advisory Board. If you are interested in volunteering or have questions and comments, please contact Development Services.
