City of Norfolk Recycling Survey

The City of Norfolk has posted a survey in an attempt to gather feedback from citizens about their feelings about recycling, how much they do it, and how much they’d be willing to pay to make sure it continues. Please consider taking this survey to help the city with its decision making process regarding this important issue.

There is also a very interesting report posted on this website that the City will be presenting to City Council later this month. We also encourage our neighbors to sign up for Open City Hall so you can provide input on other surveys that the city posts in the future.

This is an key issue for our city to sort out with full feedback from all citizens. For further context, please read the below article published in the Virginian Pilot on February 14, 2019.

Norfolk Town Hall Meeting – February 12

To Hear Comments Regarding Mid-town Office Tower Project
Three members of Norfolk’s City Council will host a Town Hall Meeting, Saturday, February 12, 2011, from 9:00 to 11:00 a.m. at Granby High School.  Council members Tommy Smigiel (Ward 5), Angelia Williams (Ward 7) and Andy Protogyrou (Ward 1) have called the meeting to hear comments from citizens regarding the Mid-town Office Tower, a proposed construction project at the corner of Tidewater Drive and Virginia Beach Boulevard.  The project developer, Tivest Development, is asking for additional city support for the $32.7 million project.
An ordinance authorizing the City Manager to negotiate amendments to an existing agreement between the city and the developer is scheduled for a vote when City Council convenes Tuesday afternoon, February 15th at 2:30pm, and the hosting council members want to give Norfolk citizens an increased opportunity to voice their views on the project.
