Join EIRA this evening from 6-7p.m. tonight via Zoom for the Neighborhood Revitalization Program (NRP) Committee meeting! For the Zoom link information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Neighborhood Revitalization Program (NRP) Committee recommends neighborhood investment opportunities to the EIRA Board and community. It monitors past strategies relative to NRP priorities set out in the neighborhood NRP plan. Neighborhood-based priority setting, planning, and implementation are core to the committee’s work. The committee seeks to represent residents and other neighborhood stakeholders to focus on improving the quality of life in the area with a look to the future and the goals, objectives, and specific strategies that will help accomplish the larger NRP vision. NRP empowerment comes from funding provided to each neighborhood to help implement their approved plans. The committee works with the City, County, Parks, Police and School officials to advance their goals and improve their neighborhood. Developing new partnerships and renewing old ones helps produce creative solutions. The partnerships created are as varied as the people and interests involved in neighborhoods. In recent years the committee has put in place efforts to improve the parks and open spaces, improve public safety and refresh the Lake of the Isles warming house that benefits the larger community. The committee solicits ideas from the larger neighborhood for possible investment priorities. The committee chair and members do not have to be members of EIRA and the city encourages NRP committees to have representation from outside the neighborhood board.
