A Truly U.P.L.I.F.T.ing Event In an exciting drive-in awards ceremony at Harbor Park on Saturday, October 10, the Department of Neighborhood Development recognized 19 exceptional community partners for their contributions to Norfolk neighborhoods during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic. Each award winner exemplified the principles of Unity, Public service, Leadership, Innovation, Friendship, and Teamwork in their efforts to provide neighbors with resources and support. Selected individuals, businesses, and non-profits were celebrated by a medley of honks, kazoos, cowbells, and cheers from nominators and fellow awardees while adhering to social distancing guidelines. Congratulations to all the winners and thank you for your unwavering commitment to serving and inspiring Norfolk citizens. View the full list of award recipients. HRT Suspends Fares Hampton Roads Transit will not collect fares on its bus, light rail, ferry and paratransit services on Election Day, November 3, as a public service to the citizens in the region. The service will run from the start of the transit day until the end. The fares are being waived to give riders every opportunity to get to the polls to vote.

It's been a year since we launched the MyNorfolk app/online portal and our redesigned norfolk.gov website! We want to make sure we're making it easy to find what you need, submit requests and more. Let us know how we're doing by taking these two surveys: MyNorfolk app/portal | Website Providing Skills and Hope For 11 years, the CARES T.E.A.M. has provided support, services, and a path to self-sufficiency for people returning to our community after justice system involvement. Qualifying participants find education and training, resume and interview skills, and assistance to obtain necessary documents such as birth certificates, Social Security cards and driver’s licenses. Support includes unlimited amounts of encouragement and kindness. In October, Norfolk expanded these services to even more people, including anyone with a criminal history, recent or long past, along with adults with child support cases who are non-custodial parents, and youth and young adults who are transitioning out of foster care. To see if you qualify, email or call Family Services Supervisor Madonna Flores at 757-664-7799. New Operational Hours Beginning November 2, Norfolk Public Library (NPL) will reopen three additional neighborhood branches and Recreation, Parks and Open Space (RPOS) will reopen indoor pools. Effective October 24, Slover Library will have new operating hours. Barron F. Black, Park Place and Van Wyck branch locations will operate two days a week. The Jordan-Newby and Mary D. Pretlow Anchor Branches will keep the same operating hours. The new operating hours for Slover Library are: Sunday and Monday, Closed Tuesday – Friday, 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. Saturday, 12 p.m. – 5 p.m. RPOS will reopen indoor pools at Northside, Huntersville and Southside Aquatics. Reservations are required. November is Adoption Month Thanks to the caring and compassionate Family Services Team at the Department of Human Services (DHS), the City of Norfolk leads the way in completed adoptions this year for the Eastern Region of Virginia. Team Norfolk finalized the most adoptions – 30 – of the 120 children who found forever homes in the Eastern Region. That total matches the number of adoptions completed by Norfolk’s DHS last year. Statewide, 858 children found permanent adoptive families. “Finalized adoptions mean forever families for children who would otherwise linger in foster care,” DHS Acting Director Denise Gallop wrote. “One child at a time!” Bland Street Gets Local Artist Flavor Local artist Mensah Bey worked with community volunteers to complete Gathering in Abundance, a street mural on Bland Street near the Five Points Intersection in the Norview neighborhood. The 100’ long, brightly colored artwork draws inspiration from West African Adinkra symbolism. Ideas of unity, togetherness, abundance, and cooperation are used to inspire growth in community, business, and relationships. The artwork also uses pedestrian movement and dance to evoke a sense of activity and caution when entering/exiting this side street to a busy and popular intersection. The project was supported by a grant from the Bloomberg Asphalt Art Initiative with funding awarded to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Southeastern Virginia and Norfolk Arts.

Connecting you to our urban, waterfront community Volume 35 | June 2021 Connecting you to our urban, waterfront community. Providing Hope, Help and Resources Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, the number of homeless residents in Norfolk has nearly doubled. In an effort to continue to protect the most vulnerable members of our city, the Norfolk Community Services Board partnered with the Urban Renewal Center to set up a temporary shelter at the former Greyhound bus station to provide food, shelter, peer and employment services to members of the homeless community. Call the shelter at 757-708-4354 for more information and to find out how you can lend a hand. FY 2022 Budget Adopted Norfolk City Council approved the City’s $1.5 billion budget. Development of the City’s FY 2022 financial plan took place during a period of unprecedented public health and economic uncertainty. While this budget begins Norfolk’s recovery, city revenues remain significantly below pre-COVID projections. Click here for more information on the budget.

More Than Building Houses The Olde Huntersville Civic League had a plan - one that would not just build up the housing stock in their neighborhood, but one that would also build up its community. Working with the City, the neighborhood established a housing plan book that allows developers to streamline the permitting process, build on smaller lots and get families into homeownership faster. In doing so, one developer was then able to give back to the civic league - in a big way. A $10,000 donation will further the community's effort in building up people. Making Travel Safer The gate to the I-64 entrance ramp on 15th View Street will now be closed daily from 12:30 to 6:30 p.m. to manage traffic during rush hour and prevent wrong way entry activity. Concrete barriers have been installed on W. Ocean View Avenue at the 15th View Ramp and drivers will not be able to turn left onto the entrance ramp. Find out more.
