Norfolk seeks citizen input on “green infrastructure” plan

The City of Norfolk is developing a new ‘green infrastructure’ plan. Come learn about Norfolk’s tree canopy, how to better protect the City from storms, reduce flooding, restore habitats and provide more recreation access.

Do you want:

  • Less flooding and clean water?
  • Access to fishing and boating?
  • Safer streets and cleaner air?
  • Attractive neighborhoods?
  • Thriving business districts?
  • Healthy and safe shorelines?

If yes, please attend one of these community forums to see the draft plans and provide your input!
