What is the Neighborhood Revitalization Program?
The Neighborhood Revitalization Program (NRP) is a coordinated inter-departmental City task force lead by the Housing and Community Services Department. NRP's mission is to improve living conditions and quality of life in focus neighborhoods throughout the City. Building and fire inspections are conducted to ensure decent, safe and sanitary housing. The Recreation and Parks Department provides on-site afterschool programs to improve the environment for youth. A Community Outreach Specialist works in the neighborhoods to assist and educate residents about city wide resources and coordinate educational and cultural events.
Ultimately, the goal of NRP is to improve the living conditions and quality of life in the neighborhood, resulting in a safer area and increased property values.
