Newport News Green Foundation
The EDA/IDA continued its policy of supporting the mission of the Green Foundation, both through financial contributions and staff support. In 2013, the organization welcomed the addition of a new executive director, Angela King. The mission of the Green Foundation is to promote the creation and preservation of green space throughout the City of Newport News through advocacy, acquisition and assistance to others in order to make Newport News a more visually attractive place to live, work and play. The Green Foundation has acquired 26.03 acres of land, consisting of 27 parcels, geographically located throughout the City, along the major commercial corridors.
