    Norfolk Off-Topic

    Norfolk State University is in the process of increasing on campus housing with the addition of new dorms. I'm not to thrilled with all the parking spaces, but always cheer increased density. https://pilotonline.com/inside-business/news/continuing-education-work-development/article_d9f8a08a-756b-11e8-ad22-634c8696e591.html

    Norfolk Off-Topic

    Editorial about Norfolk city council woman Angelia Graves' opposition of recycling plant off of St. Julian Ave. She and other residents are kind of late voicing opposition to this project. They should sit down with Meeks and have a discussion about their concerns and maybe he will be amenable to their suggestions. https://pilotonline.com/news/local/columnist/roger-chesley/article_feea3c6e-2c50-11e8-ad00-97a4ebdd8efd.html

    I think we lose perspective when you compare Norfolk to other cities. Norfolk has come a long way from the 1980s when I last lived down there. The vibrancy of the city is amazing. And I credit the leaders, NRHA and the citizens for doggedly pursuing making Norfolk into a World Class city. The country and the world is taking note.
