Southeast Community Resource Area Master Plan Unveiled

NEWPORT NEWS—At a recent work session, the Newport News City Council and the Newport News School Board were given a presentation on the Master Plan for the Southeast Community Resource Area (SECRA).

The plan for this seven-block area between Orcutt and Wickham avenues and 28th and 36th streets, was developed with community input through stakeholder interviews, open houses, and a community survey, and includes a new Huntington Middle School; a community building that preserves the facade and cultural history of Huntington High School, and contains a library, gym, community programming, pool, and waterpark; courts; amphitheater; and a community garden. The vision for the area is that it will be a twenty-first century, one-stop shop that supports all residents, educates the mind, body and spirit, and creates a distinctive community gathering place.
