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.  To watch videos introducing the project, click here and here.  To read the adopted vision, click here.  

What should Vision 2100 tell us?
Vision 2100 is all about how we make our decisions.  Whether it’s the city’s infrastructure investments or its response to development proposals, Vision 2100 aims to ensure that resources are used efficiently, with an eye towards 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.

Visioning Community Meetings
The city hosted a series of visioning meetings in the summer of 2016.  The goal of those meetings was to take the asset information collected during the earlier asset mapping meetings and use it, along with other available information, to create a resilient vision for Norfolk as the ‘Coastal Community of the Future’.
