HAMPTON—On Wednesday, November 9, Hampton City Council heard presentations from City Council Staff and NorthPoint Development on a proposal to rezone approximately 63 acres of land at the former site of the Virginia School for the Deaf, Blind, and Multi-Disabled, which closed in 2008. The parcels in question are located at 700 and 750 Shell Rd., near the intersection of Pembroke Avenue and Aberdeen Road. The request was to rezone from One Family Residential (R-13) to Light Manufacturing (M2) with 12 proffered conditions.
Nearly 50 members of the public also stepped up to the microphone during the open portion of the meeting to voice their approval or disapproval of the rezoning application by NorthPoint Development. Proponents for the application stated the proposal would bring 200 temporary construction jobs to the area during the building of an industrial commerce center and another 250 permanent jobs to workers at the center once construction was completed as well as economic growth and tax revenue for the City of Hampton, which in turn would reduce tax burdens on residents.
