Craven 100 Alliance
The private sector, Craven County, and the cities of New Bern and Havelock came together to form the Craven 100 Alliance, a public-private economic development partnership. Under this new organization, the four partners will now collaborate on long-term planning and set the direction for economic development in Craven County along with local stakeholders in each facet of economic development.
The Craven 100 Alliance will build on the efforts and success of the groups that preceded it, while forging stronger relationships with strategic partners in order to fully leverage their broad range of resources. When we are successful, Craven County benefits from increased job openings, improved tax revenues, and a secure population.
