For our work in housing revitalization, Positively Paseo was awarded the 2012 APEX Award for Housing Revitalization from the Oklahoma Housing Finance Agency and a Citation of Merit from the Oklahoma State Historic Preservation Office. What an honor to be recognized for our work to revitalize the Paseo Historic District!
In 2010, The Paseo Historic District was designated one of the "Top Ten Great Neighborhoods in America" by the American Planning Association. The APA considered the synergy between Paseo's recent (and ongoing) housing revitalization and its commercial and arts district. Affordable, quality housing options, proximity to job centers and public transportation, and quality neighborhood schools led to the APA's determination. Paseo is the first neighborhood in Oklahoma to receive this honor!
