Fox Hill Neighborhood Center

The city is planning to replace a recreation center in Fox Hill destroyed by a tornado in 2014. The new center could be about 18,000 square feet and include stage areas, basketball courts and kitchens, although final plans are not yet set. The Hampton City Council has set aside $3.5 million to construct a new neighborhood center in Fox Hill.  The City seeks your input about sites being considered for the new facility.

Land use analyses of several sites were conducted to determine the suitability of constructing a neighborhood center.

A community meeting was held to discuss the Fox Hill Neighborhood Center on Thursday, January 12th at 6:30PM at Asbury School on 14 Beach Road. Attendees were able to rank their preferred site amongst the top five sites that were deemed most feasible. Those five sites include (in no particular order): 

  • Jones Middle School – 1819 Nickerson Boulevard (Only a portion of the site will be used, the school is NOT being demolished.)
  • Cornerstone Church – 65 Hall Road 
  • Hampton Soccer Complex – Intersection of Old Buckroe Rd & Andrews Blvd (A portion of an existing field would be used for the center)
  • Willow Oaks Shopping Center – 223 Fox Hill Road, Suites A & B
  • Gosnold’s Hope Park – 901 E Little Back River (front portion of the park)
If you were not able to attend the community meeting held on January 12th, please complete the survey to select your preferred location.  The deadline to complete this survey will be on Friday, February 17, 2017.

If you have questions or concerns about this project, please do not hesitate to contact Laura Fitzpatrick, Assistant City Manager (lafitzpatrick@hampton.gov or 727-6392).
