About Green Run

Green Run is a residential and commercial community covering nearly six square miles in the center of Virginia Beach, Virginia. Built between 1968 and 1986 by Oscar Ferebee Jr., Green Run was the first Planned Unit Development (PUD) built in the South Hampton Roads region and contains 36 neighborhoods, including 4200 single-family homes, townhouses, three condominium projects, and three apartment communities with roughly 900 apartments. Additionally there are several schools and retail establishments within the confines of Green Run PUD.


While Green Run was originally planned to have four boroughs that would include single family homes, apartments, schools, retail establishments and recreational amenities; over time the needs and viability of the plans evolved and changed and today we have a large community with over 16,000 residents. When a person purchases a property that is in Green Run they are automatically made a member and with over four thousand individual properties the monthly dues are some of the lowest for common interest communities in the state. Owners have the member benefit of access to several amenities including three pools, tennis courts, several playgrounds, walking trails, open spaces and a clubhouse as well as Ferebee Field which is a large baseball field in the community currently utilized by Green Run Little League in partnership with Green Run Homes Association.


The Green Run Homes Association is overseen by a board of nine directors that are volunteer owners and/or residents. Three board positions are elected each year by the membership and serve for a three year term. The day to day operations of the Association are administered by a community manager and various staff members. The Association is responsible for maintaining the numerous amenities that are owned by the Association and collection of monthly dues.


Volunteers are a vital part of the Green Run Community with most events and activities being planned and orchestrated by dedicated owners and residents. In addition we regularly partner with several local groups including Green Run High School, Green Run CommUNITY Leaders, Green Run Elementary, Green Run Youth Leaders and various departments within the City of Virginia Beach with the intended result of bringing residents together to foster fellowship and a strong sense of community.
