Carolina Colours is a 2,000-acre residential community that offers a small-town, natural setting featuring streams, lakes, creeks, woods and rolling topography. Amenities include a championship golf course, pool, tennis courts, walking and biking trails, a commercial center and playgrounds. Situated within the town limits of historic New Bern and a short drive to the Atlantic Ocean, Carolina Colours features 50 neighborhoods, each shaped by its natural surroundings. McKim & Creed furnished surveying, master planning, land planning and and permitting services, along with water, sanitary sewer and stormwater engineering, for this expansive community. Careful planning and design maximized the topography and natural attributes throughout the site, exemplified by the non-disturbance of fewer than three of 485 wetland-habitat acres, as well as the 50-ft. buffers and bottomless or natural-bottom culverts that protect blue-line streams and help preserve stream habitat and facilitate fish passage.
