Good Job Norfolk, Newport News!

17 09 2008

Congratulations to Norfolk and Newport News for being named on the list of Playful Cities. Although I could not find information about Norfolk, I did find the reason Newport News was named. Taken right from the KaBoom! website:

The Play Committee in Newport News, Va. is working with the Newport News Commission on Youth to include play priorities in their 5-year strategic plan. One of the initiatives is to create a map with both playspaces and the public transportation system, encouraging those youth who use the public transit system for free to engage in more unstructured play. The city also is planning to relocate an under-used play structure to a high-traffic community center.

Good job Newport News and great ideas! Sounds like ideas that could serve the rest of Hampton Roads as well.
