Hampton to get new bus terminal

Comment on this story

By Sarah Ford,

HAMPTON — Hampton trustees this week agreed to spend up to $800 for a concrete slab for a new MetroLINK bus terminal the transit agency plans to erect here.

The covered terminal for the new bus stop, which has no completion date set, will be near the police station at 901 4th street. Hampton trustees requested that location to meet the demands of residents who live in those neighborhoods.

It will be the second MetroLink terminal in Hampton.

In other action, the board discussed a Toys for Tots drop-off event at the Hampton Heritage Center from 5-8 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 30th. Donations of new, unwrapped toys will be accepted, and cookies and beverages will be served.

And on Saturday, Dec. 1st, a holiday trivia night will take place at the Hampton Heritage Center, with funds benefiting Hampton Heritage Days, tentatively set for the spring of 2013.

Pre-registration is recommended, and forms can be picked up at the Village Hall during regular business hours. Teams of up to eight will play 10 rounds of trivia, at a cost of $80 per team. The 1st place prize is $160 and 2nd place is $80.

Trustees also voted to close the Hampton Heritage Center one additional day during the week, though they didn't decide which day yet. The change will only occur during the winter months, when visitors to the center decrease.
