NURVE is a comprehensive revitalization effort birthed to strategically address some of the complex issues that face the Nystrom neighborhood such as physical and economic blight, crime, at-risk youth, unemployment, and poverty.
NURVE aims to address these community needs through programs and services, capital improvement projects, and greater community participation.
The Nystrom neighborhood centers around the NystromElementary School and the Martin Lurther King Jr. Park and Community Center. The neighborhood consists of a 5 block by 4 block portion of Richmond that contains the Iron Triangle, Santa Fe and Coronado neighborhood councils. However, the impacts of NURVE will be felt beyond the physical neighborhood boundaries.
