This is our opportunity to create jobs, generate millions of dollars for schools and make our city the leading tourist destination in Virginia. Join our cause and help bring this once-in-a-lifetime project in Norfolk.
"Hundreds of millions of dollars stand to be invested in our city, which will bring thousands of new jobs for residents. New opportunities will be presented to our businesses and entrepreneurs, and our city will potentially benefit from millions of dollars in new tax revenue that will be committed to public education. This would be the first project of its size to be financed without taxpayer subsidies, and the land for this project will be purchased at full-market-value."
“From the beginning, the Pamunkey Indian Tribe has been an incredible economic development partner. From their commitment to all site improvements without any city funds, to their commitment to our community, this partnership is already reaping benefits for our city and will continue to for decades to come.”
"The Norfolk Resort and Casino is projected to be a $500 million economic development project, generating nearly 2,500 jobs. The annual tax revenues to the City of Norfolk from this commercial casino will be used to address flooding and sea-level rise, support our schools and make our neighborhoods safer.”
“I made the decision to support the Norfolk Resort and Casino because the development will provide continuous revenue to our city for equity in education to our Scholars. I support this project because it will help build our communities. Where it would take years to generate enough money, now there will be revenue. The job and career opportunities will provide Norfolk residents a better chance to be self-supporting and support families. Residents also have the potential to gain executive-level jobs. College Students have a chance to practice their career jobs on-site and get hands-on experience. The Norfolk Resort and Casino is an economic development project without subsidies.”
“As a parent and supporter of Norfolk Public Schools, the school system has been a priority since I first joined Council. This project provides an injection of revenue the City of Norfolk desperately needs to improve the educational facilities for our students. I’m all in!”
