From business owners to life-long residents, the Norfolk Resort and Casino has received widespread support throughout the City and Commonwealth. The excitement is growing!
I'm ALL IN so my son's school can be funded.
"I have lived in Norfolk over 25 years and I desperately want MY city of Norfolk to get this revenue in perpetuity, to mitigate flooding and help rebuild and refurbish our schools. That's why I'm all in!"
"The reparative element is one of the most important aspects of this discussion for me. Creating opportunity for our indigenous Americans that also boosts our Norfolk economy and tourism is a win win situation."
"This project will help provide much-needed revenue for our schools and preventing it from going forward would be a detriment to our students' futures."
"As a life-long resident, veteran and father, I know that it is time for our city to get a much needed boost. This project will create new jobs in all sectors that will help our entire city rise up economically. Jobs that will allow our kids to want to stay in Norfolk, which is important to me. This project is coming at the perfect time and that is why I am all in!"
"I support this resort casino because it will bring new jobs to our shared community and revitalize a part of our city that has been vacant for decades. This development will elevate Norfolk with a world class development we can all be proud of."
"I support the Norfolk casino project because it will bring thousands of jobs to our community and put our city on the map. A fun and creative project like this can transform our city into a destination that people all over the country will want to visit."
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!”
