Norfolk is a historic city on the water. For 400 years, the city has been a key part of America’s history, commerce, and innovation. We are known for resilience—surviving wars, a plague, hurricanes, and social upheaval. Time and again, we reinvent and rebuild ourselves. We recognize the challenges before us and are addressing them head-on with a conviction and passion that is unique to the people who make Norfolk home today.
At the core of our resilience strategy is a commitment by each citizen, organization, and municipal system, and by leadership from all sectors, to acknowledge our stresses and vulnerabilities and to work proactively to find solutions.
