Planning for Broad Creek Refresh
The Department of City Planning is embarking on a community-driven “refresh” of the 2004 Broad Creek Plan (Broad Creek Revitalization & Implementation Plan Book). Much has changed in the Broad Creek Community since the plan was adopted, such as the construction of new homes, a new school and library, and The Kroc Center, to name a few. But much has not changed, such as the continued land-use conflicts in portions of the community. It is important to build off these successes and address the issues that still remain, such as the industrial areas and some of the commercial nodes that still need attention. Revisiting the Plan with the community will lead to a revised vision and direction for Plan implementation.
The Broad Creek Refresh is a two-part effort:
- Phase I included amendments to the general plan, plaNorfolk2030, and the zoning map pertaining to specific properties within the Broad Creek Study Area: Affected Properties (PDF), Properties to be rezoned with streets (PDF), Future Land Use Map amendments (PDF)
- The general plan amendments and rezonings were adopted by the City Council on June 23, 2020.
- For more information on these Phase I amendments, please review these staff reports
- Phase II included a robust public participatory process which helped identify additional issues and opportunities to address in the plan. The draft plan will be presented to the City Planning Commission on June 24, 2021 and City Council (tentatively July 20, 2021) for adoption into the City's general plan, plaNorfolk2030
- The Department of Transit is managing another significant project in the Broad Creek area - the Princess Anne Road Corridor Improvements. For more information on this project, please visit: https://www.norfolk.gov/4877/Princess-Anne-Road-Corridor-Improvements
