dc.description.abstractNewport is a small village in Giles County located “between Gap Mountain, Salt Pond Mountain, and Spruce Run Mountain. It is the center community for Spruce Run, Mountain Lake, Clover Hollow, and Sinking Creek.”* The Village Green came into existence in 1997, following a conceptual design process through Professor Eran Ben Joseph’s undergraduate landscape architecture studio at Virginia Tech. Since that time, it has served the church and community well. Annual community events are hosted there (Easter egg hunt, ice cream social, Fourth of July event, etc). It also serves as a venue for weddings, community movie nights, and music events.

Some additional site features are desired to better accommodate these growing uses of the site. Additionally, some of the vegetation on the site is reaching maturity and requires updating. The Trustees would like to use these needs as an opportunity to take a comprehensive look at the Village Green and to update the conceptual master plan with a fresh look to the future. The Community Design Assistance Center (CDAC) was asked to assist in this process by working with the project stakeholders and the larger community to develop an updated conceptual master plan for the site.
