Successes in Denby Park

May 22, 2015

The Wards Corner community has pressured the City of Norfolk to clean up the crime infested “Texas Streets” area of Denby Park since the completion of the Wards Corner Comprehensive plan in 2004.

Since 2011 the City has purchased 193 substandard crime inducing apartment units and demolished them.  As a result, crime has dropped demonstrably.

Louis Eisenberg has provided pictures showing the successes in Denby Park and Monticello Village in the form of new residential construction, below.  It’s hard to believe that any of the below investment and construction would be feasible without the reduction in crime.  This is a huge success that should be celebrated in Wards Corner.
