[ARCHIVED] Explore Your Neighborhood Through the Norfolk Open Data Portal

New datasets available for Norfolk residents

NORFOLK, VA – Norfolk residents have questions, and the city is excited to offer answers through new datasets related to Public Works, Parks & Recreation and General Services in the Open Data Portal.

You can better understand and research repairs related to ADA ramps, sidewalks, potholes and more through a new work order dataset from the Division of Streets and Bridges, and the Division of Environmental Storm Water Management. The dataset also includes storm water cleaning, structure repairs, pipe flushing and vegetation maintenance. Residents can search by ward, superward, civic league, cost and completed work orders.

Norfolk Parks & Recreation, Parks & Urban Forestry Division, manages more than 200,000 trees citywide, maintains parks, outdoor public spaces, city-owned lots and school properties. Service work orders include tree removal, tree pruning, mowing and more. A dataset is available for residents to better understand how their neighborhood is maintained.

Did you know buildings are responsible for roughly 40% of worldwide greenhouse gas emissions? The City of Norfolk measures and analyzes energy use in all city-owned and operated municipal buildings to help meet conservation goals.
