“Home on the Range” Benefit concert for RCS

Important information for Greenbrier residents

On Sunday October 2nd from 5:00 pm to 8 pm the Emerald is hosting the event with expectations of a very large turnout.  For more information about the concert, please contact Kim Briele or Shannon LuQuire at www.newbernconcerts.com.  A brief description of Home on the Range can be found by clicking here.

The GPOA is not involved in the marketing or production of this event in any way.  This notice is to provide Greenbrier residents with the facts about the event so that you can be aware of the activity in our community on Sunday Oct 2nd.

Since we do not have an email address for everyone in Greenbrier, I have requested the concert organizers place a flyer in every Greenbrier paper box.


Residents asked to use the main entrance only.  As you enter, IDs may be requested by a guard located at Greenbrier Parkway and Rosemary.  This is to identify residents.  (There were plans to distribute passes for residents coming and going but those plans are no longer valid-so, no passes will be issued)  If you are stopped, please have your driver’s license available so that the guard can see that you are a resident of Greenbrier.

Are you expecting GUESTS on Sunday, Oct 2nd?

Guest Passes will be available for distribution on September 29th at the Emerald for anyone who is anticipating guests on the day of the concert. Officers will be instructed to look for the colored pass on the rear view mirror to make it more convenient for the guests, but passes are not required. Guests without a pass will let the officer know they are visiting a resident. The pass for guests allows traffic to flow more smoothly.

More Lake Issues

The heavy rain on Thursday night, Sept 22nd, caused a section of the berm to give way.  Jerry Briele, owner of The Emerald, is working with an engineer to find a way to resolve this.  Representatives from the City and the contractor met with Jerry at the site early Friday to access the situation. Stay tuned.

Message from the GPOA Board, July 29, 2016

Greetings friends and neighbors. Just to give you an update of our work to date on the Lakes/Ponds drainage issues.

Your GPOA has been working diligently to facilitate and expedite the repair of equipment which controls the flow of water into several bodies of water in Greenbrier. Since the Emerald Golf Course owns the lakes/ponds that abut the golf course, the GPOA has no authority to direct work or pay for required repairs. What we can do is serve as a facilitator between multiple parties – The Emerald, City of New Bern, GPOA, individual property owners.

Despite a visual lack of progress, there has been movement in the right direction. Various infrastructure repairs to road and pipes have been made by the City. Jerry Briele – Emerald Club Owner/Manager is meeting with contractors to get quotes for price and method of repair for equipment in the lake. The GPOA has maintained constant contact with City officials at the highest level to help broker any available City resources.

This is a complex issue and development of an action plan has been fraught with complications. The situation remains fluid, but is moving through a critical stage; securing a contractor to do the actual lake repair.

We are all anxious about this situation and we appreciate the concerns everyone must have regarding property values. Please rest assured, we are devoting all of our resources to affect a resolution to this issue. We will continue to post updates on the usual GPOA forums and email blasts like this one.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.
