NORFOLK, VA – The City of Norfolk received $154.1 million in American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funding. A virtual town hall meeting hosted by Councilwoman Andria McClellan and Councilwoman Danica Royster is scheduled for Thursday, January 27, at 6:00 p.m. via WebEx.
During the town hall, residents will learn the ABCs of the American Rescue Plan Act Funds allotted to the city. They can also sign up to speak with their 123s - or top three requested priorities for these funds. Speakers will have 3 minutes.
To sign up to speak for this virtual town hall, residents must register with the Clerk’s office no later than 3:00 p.m. on Thursday, January 27, by calling (757) 664-4253 or emailing email@example.com. Residents should indicate if they will be participating online or over the phone.
Residents can also use the online survey, the Prioritize tool or email the city at ARPACommunication@norfolk.gov to share their priorities for ARPA funding.
Feedback from these resources and from previous public meetings can be viewed with the new Public Engagement Dashboard, an online collection of all input provided by residents that is updated daily. All ARPA funding tools and information is available at www.norfolk.gov/ARPA.
Resident feedback will be used to create a community-based City Manager's recommendation for City Council consideration on ARPA funding. City Council will hold a public hearing once they have received the community-based City Manager's Proposed Plan.
