Community meeting held in Wards Corner

Wards Corner Charrette hosted by the Norfolk Planning Dept

NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) — Both candidates for mayor of Norfolk were at a community meeting in Wards Corner Monday.

The city’s planning department hosted the Charrette, as a chance for residents to offer input on the future of Denby Park.

Nearly 200 substandard housing units in the neighborhood have been purchased and demolished over the last five years — This is part of the city’s goal of revitalizing that area and cutting down on crime.

Residents also shared what their vision was for Wards Corner, as a whole.
