Newport (Oceana: Noveástranck, IPA: [novɛˈʔast̪ʁ̥aŋkˠ], meaning: new riverside) is a natural and historical neighborhood east of Hurbanova. It was originally planned to be an industrial neighborhood, but because of the Hurbanovan Uproar it was deserted and demolished. It is the largest neighborhood of Lovia in size, but the least densely populated.

Along the neighborhood lies the Newport-Forest district.

History Edit

In 2008 interest for a new neighborhood showed up. The original plans for making it, were created by the former mayor of Hurbanova and governor of Oceana, Oos Wes Ilava. His first draft was to create a residential neighborhood. He had plans to create almost five new neighborhoods. The name of Newport would be New Scotland. However, after some illegal actions he was forced to postpone his plans. He quit as mayor and governor and a few days later he was sent to jail for three weeks. He forgot about his plans while he was in jail. After three weeks of thinking about his illegal actions he was released. A lot had changed in Hurbanova and Oceana. Hurbanova had a new mayor, Ben Opať. He was having a conversation with Oos Wes and out of nothing plans for a new neighborhood retouched the light. Oos Wes immediately dropped plans for two neighborhoods and he proposed to build three neighborhoods. Ben, however, did not think it was necessary to build that many neighborhoods and was thinking about two neighborhoods. The plans for New Scotland were dropped.

In August that same year Bart Koenen proposed to build an enormous industrial neighborhood east of Hurbanova. His original plans involved an area twice as large as the current neighborhood. Oos Wes thought it was a little bit too large and proposed to make it a little bit smaller. Ben even wanted to make it that small that it would only in the area where the harbor was constructed later on. Jamal Hustróva liked the plans of Oos Wes and after a vote the bullet was through the church. Oos Wes worked out his plans and presented them on August 8. The neighborhood was finished after 8 days of blood, sweat and tears.

Demolition Edit

After the second Hurbanovan Uproar, Lovia became inactive and the Newport fast fell in disuse. Arthur Jefferson eventually demolished it and the area was almost completely empty and sealed off from the outer world. On March 9, 2010 the area was made free to public again by King Dimitri I and he handed it over to Oos Wes Ilava, who cleaned it up and made a natural environment of it.

  3. Voting results for these elections may not be fully accurate, as some people were still registrated in Hurbanova and East Hills, due to the transition to the district system. As a result, the amount of registered voters in the hamlet is lower than the actual amount; while some votes in built-up areas are actually votes from hamlets.
