New Bern is making new efforts with flood mitigation, resilience plans

New Bern, NC. (WNCT) Residents and visitors have recalled the devastating effects of Hurricane Florence in East North Carolina, and images of Hurricane Laura devastation in Texas and Louisian have highlighted the need for coastal community risk mitigation and resilient planning.

Earlier this year, CTT began working with our consulting partners on multi-phase, long-term risk mitigation and resilience plans that would include significant public input.

Once completed, the City hopes the plan will become a model for other coastal communities.
