Welcome to the Housing Authority of
the City of New Bern!

Martin Blaney

We are quite excited about our new website and hope that you will find it helpful and user friendly. You will be able to find minutes of the Authority’s Board of Commissioners’ meetings, meeting agendas, calendars indicating upcoming events and other useful information. As we proceed in our efforts to revitalize our public and affordable housing inventory, we hope that you use this site to stay informed and connected.

We are also quite excited about our future, particularly the potential of our two new programs, the Rental Assistance Demonstration and the Choice Neighborhood Initiative. These have the potential to have a profound impact upon our public housing constituents, the Greater Five Points and Duffyfield neighborhood and the entire City. Watch this site for the addition of new information, progress updates and links. We hope this proves to be THE TOOL by which all New Bernians can be informed and kept up to date.

While our new initiatives present great opportunities, they also present formidable challenges. Only with the cooperation of the public, our residents, our partners and all stakeholders can we surmount these challenges. To that end, I pledge that the Authority and its staff will conduct our business in a manner that ensures we are proper stewards of the public trust, that we will respect the opinions of ALL others, and that we will manage our affairs in a respectful, transparent manner.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any comments or suggestions for our website….and, I hope to meet you at one of our upcoming public meetings!
