ACTION APPROVED BY CITY COUNCIL-2007
 
 
BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF HISTORY AND NEIGHBORHOOD OBJECTIVES
In 2005, the City asked NRHA to undertake a blight study of three Wards Corner communities: Denby Park, Monticello Village and Oakdale Farms. NRHA contracted with the University of North Carolina to undertake this study in the fall of 2005. In 2006, The Center for Urban and Regional Studies at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill completed a study of the Wards Corner study area. As a result of the findings in this study, NRHA and the City of Norfolk entered into a Memorandum of Understanding for Wards Corner in the fall of 2008. Under this MOU, NRHA will provide the following rehabilitation programs to the communities beginning in FY 2009: Norfolk Home Rehabilitation Program, Home Appeal Program and Home Style Program. The goal of these programs is to provide funding for rehabilitation activities in Denby Park, Monticello Village and Oakdale Farms.
