Tuesday night there was good news for one of the county's oldest buildings. The school board voted to renovate New Hanover High School's Jap Davis Field House. The county condemned the building in July, but it was announced Tuesday night that the building can withstand the renovations. New Hanover High principal Chris Furr said, “I think the important thing is to have a facility that is going to be usable for the kids and the coaching staff not just short term, but long term as well.” The school board voted unanimously to a major renovation, including replacing plumbing, electrical and ventilation work. It is expected to cost about $750,000.
