This is the proposed site for a new regional juvenile jail.

It’s at the former Tidewater Auto Auction site near McDonald’s, across Military Highway from Sunset Manor. It is next to Pauline Bradshaw’s dance studio and it is adjacent to Washington Manor, Gatewood Apartments and Woodshire Mobile Home Park. The Oak Manor neighborhood is just across the railroad tracks.

I understand that the jail has “zero easement” to surrounding property, meaning its walls can be right on the property line.

This is a terrible location for this proposed facility. There are a lot more places in the city where it would be more suitable.

If Deep Creek ever had any hope of that area being developed into a nice commercial corridor, this won’t help!

How can you help? Write or email city council (council@cityofchesapeake.net). Concerned residents will meet on May 30th at 6:30 p.m. at a location to be announced. Join the opposition!

The first City Council meeting will be held on Tuesday, June 13th at 6:30 and the final City Council meeting will be on Tuesday, June 27th at 6:30 for the final voting. When you attend these meetings, please wear purple to support Deep Creek.
