Partnering with the Community
What makes the Norfolk Resort and Casino different from other casinos is our firm and unwavering commitment to community. We look forward to being your neighbor on the waterfront and hope to build a reputation as a compassionate corporate citizen of the City of Norfolk.
Unlike international corporate casino operators, the Norfolk Resort and Casino operators are members of the community and plan to reinvest a great deal of time, energy and financial resources back into Norfolk, the Hampton Roads region and the Commonwealth of Virginia as a whole. To this end, you can count on the Pamunkey Indian Tribe to be a true partner with the City to make this a project of which we can all be proud. The Pamunkey Indian Tribe know what it is like to need better access to essential services and resources and is excited to do their part to give back to the Norfolk community.
The Tribe doesn’t plan on waiting for the Resort and Casino to open before getting involved in the community. The Tribe is currently working on some exciting plans to grow its roots in Norfolk. The Tribe recognizes the food insecurities some residents of Norfolk face and are partnering with churches and local organizations to provide meals to those in need. Food insecurity is an issue close to the heart of the Tribe, and they are committed to addressing this complex issue in Norfolk. In addition to hands-on partnerships with community organizations and philanthropic causes throughout the City, they are going to be contributing to Norfolk’s flood resiliency plan along the Elizabeth River, making them the first private developer in the entire City to provide critical funding for this important and time-sensitive undertaking that will help protect Norfolk from sea level rise for generations to come. With a reservation surrounded by the Pamunkey River and much of its land at wetland, the Tribe is particularly sensitive to flooding and pleased to be part of helping the City address this issue.I'm Ready To Vote YES!
