Property Transferred to Housing Authority
City Council conveyed city-owned vacant property at 646 Hampton Avenue to the Newport News Redevelopment and Housing Authority, which will, in turn, transfer it to Habitat for Humanity. With the support of Newport News Shipbuilding, Habitat for Humanity is building a home on the site in the spring. This will be the 16th home funded and constructed by employees of Newport News Shipbuilding, of which 13 are in Newport News.
