What is Vision 2100?
In the fall of 2015, as a part of its overall resiliency efforts, the City of Norfolk began a planning process, called Vision 2100. Vision 2100, adopted on November 22, 2016, provides a long-term strategy to address the challenges of sea level rise, infrastructure needs, and population growth. It's overall goal is to design the coastal community of the future, ensuring that Norfolk will be a dynamic, water-based City well into the future.

How does this relate to other efforts? Vision 2100 is integrally linked to the city’s efforts as part of the 100 Resilient Cities initiative as well as the city’s Neighbors Building Neighborhoods initiative. The input collected as part of the Vision 2100 planning process is informing those efforts and the strategies developed for each are reflected in the other.
