City Services

The North End Huntington Heights Preservation Association is a privately funded, not-for-profit entity and not affiliated with the City of Newport News government.  Though NEHHPA does communicate and advocate on behalf of the neighborhood as a whole with the City we are not a provider of public services.  This page is intended exclusively for informational purposes to connect residents of the historic district with various City departments and services.
