Reborn Oklahoma City neighborhood is finalist for national award

BY CARRIE COPPERNOLL Published: April 30, 2011

Riverpark is the first Oklahoma neighborhood that has been named a finalist for the award, said Georgie Rasco, executive director of Neighborhood Alliance of Central Oklahoma.

The group needs help getting there, Rasco said. They need to raise about $4,000 to make the trip to the conference for the presentation.

Riverpark was developed in the 1940s and is from SW 24 to SW 29 and from Portland to Tulsa avenues. The average home in Riverpark sells for about $37,000, Rasco said.

Riverpark shows that neighbors who work together can improve their community, regardless of income, Rasco said.

“It is literally nothing short of miraculous what they've done,” she said. “In Oklahoma City, we pull together as neighbors. ... We go out there and create the kind of neighborhood we want to have.”


The Riverpark Neighborhood Association needs to raise about $4,000 to make the trip to Alaska for the national conference. Donations are tax deductible and may be sent to Neighborhood Alliance, 1236 NW 35, Oklahoma City, OK 73118. Earmark gifts with “Alaska.” Donations also can be made at
