The board of directors proposes the partnership vote

At the Northeast Community College Board of Governors meeting Tuesday afternoon, the board introduced a motion to approve a “collaborative partnership with the City of Norfolk and Norfolk Public Schools,” as per the agenda.

The Norfolk Public Schools Board of Education recently approved a collaborative partnership between itself, Northeast Community College and the City of Norfolk to pay one-third of the cost for improvements to the softball facilities at Ta-Ha-Zouka Park, not to exceed $400,000.

The proposed changes to the softball facilities would include a player locker room, improve the condition of available restrooms, and make sidewalks ADA compliant, among other renovations. The changes were initially part of a local sales tax proposal that was rejected in November 2022.

The board presented the motion for the next meeting, scheduled for Thursday 13 April.
