New Bern Station Area Planning Ask-A-Planner

Tarboro Road Community Center

Let’s Discuss Rezoning for the New Bern Avenue Transit Overlay District  Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) stations are planned along New Bern Avenue. Zoning changes are proposed to add the Transit Overlay District (TOD) to the zoning map along the future New Bern Avenue Bus Rapid Transit route. The TOD requires walkable development in core areas around transit routes and incentivizes the inclusion of affordable housing units in new buildings. During the meeting you can expect to learn about: What will happen during the rezoning process. Which properties are included in the proposed rezoning. What would actually happen to the properties once rezoned.
