WGI Helps Restaurants and Small Businesses in Norfolk, Virginia With OpenNorfolk
WGI worked with the City of Norfolk, Virginia and WPA architects to provide rapid response to COVID-19. Utilizing CARES Act funding, the City established a program for restaurants to move dining outside to allow for patrons to dine safely and at a safe distance. Over 300 businesses received assistance and now the program is expanding to assist with recreational opportunities for youth.
OpenNorfolk is a boots-on-the-ground community assistance program that is helping local businesses open safely under the governor’s Phase 1-3 guidelines. In phase 3, OpenNorfolk will continue to assist local businesses while focusing on neighborhoods and communities, aiming to fill needs for outdoor programming, safe places for families and kids, and community activation. The program will provide temporary, flexible neighborhood spots that ensure that the communities in which they are built can deliver their vision for a safe, healthy, educational summer pop-up park.
WGI helped design parklets to let businesses extend their sidewalk area quickly, for safe seating. This has allowed several businesses re-open or expand their service capacity during this challenging time.
