Comprehensive Planning

The Comprehensive Planning program is dedicated to developing, refining, and facilitating implementation of a long-range, comprehensive planning vision for Norfolk that promotes an equitable, resilient, healthy, and sustainable community. This program’s primary responsibility is to prepare, update, maintain, and implement the city's Comprehensive Plan, and to ensure all development actions are consistent with the Comprehensive Plan and other relevant city policies. Norfolk’s current Comprehensive Plan, also called the General Plan, is plaNorfolk2030. The program is also responsible for preparing, updating, maintaining, and implementing small area and neighborhood plans throughout Norfolk. 

The Department of City Planning is kicking off the process to create a new Comprehensive Plan - NFK2050.  Please visit the project website for more information.
