Where are the greatest needs?
The areas of greatest needs were identified through a combination of public input and data-driven analysis that reflect the goals of Multimodal Norfolk.
The resulting maps of pedestrian and bicycle/scooter needs show Norfolk’s streets in four levels of need – Low, Medium, Moderate, and High – based on the concentrations of needs data from the analysis and public input.
The Needs Maps allow projects to be evaluated according to their level of multimodal need. This assures that we focus on the highest need areas first. However, the Needs evaluation is one of several factors that determine when and how a project gets funded. More information is available in the Draft Plan and Draft Appendices.
How do we fund it?
The Resource Allocation Plan is a process for making sure the most important projects get as much funding as possible.
The Resource Allocation Plan matches funding sources to projects. It matches projects based on:
- Best chance of getting funded
- Long, medium, or short time frames
- Available funds
