The New Bern Planning and Zoning Board will hold an informational session about the New Bern Redevelopment Commission plan and also consider a proposed redevelopment area boundary.

The meeting will be 5:30 p.m. Feb. 5 at City Hall, Pollock and Craven streets, in the second floor Courtroom.

Jeffrey Ruggieri, city director of development services, will present the plans at the meeting. Ruggieri is also executive director of the New Bern Redevelopment Commission.

The Redevelopment Agency is a way for the city to gather resources, identify areas of the city in need of significant improvements, and focus those resources on those areas.

The agenda for the meeting did not include specific plans, but in previous discussions, the redevelopment zone is generally targeted at an area near downtown called the Greater Duffyfield section.
