Forum on Norfolk's public housing redevelopment

Three public housing communities in Norfolk soon could be demolished.

NORFOLK, Va. (WVEC) -- Beginning on Tuesday, you can have your say in the re-development of three public-housing communities in Norfolk.

It calls for demolishing nearly 2,000 homes, and replacing them with mixed-income, mixed-use development.

That includes restoring Church Street as a shopping district, and a large open space along Tidewater Drive to manage flooding.

The first of six meetings will be held at the Basilica of Saint Mary on Chapel Street. That meeting starts at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday.

Below is a breakdown for the number of households and people within the three communities:

Tidewater Gardens – 618 total units – 1,659 total household members

  • Adults – 735
  • Youth – 924

Young Terrace – 746 total units – 1,761 total household members

  • Adults – 857
  • Youth – 904

Calvert Square – 310 total units – 737 total household members

  • Adults – 357
  • Youth – 380

If City Council approves the agreement, demolition could begin as early as Fall 2018.
