The OAPA Physical Improvements committee has reached out to designer and Old Allentown resident, Deb Rabinsky to select the best paint colors for residents

to choose from. Rather than residents being overwhelmed with hundreds of possibilities, we will be narrowing it down to make resident choices easier to make.

The Physical Improvements committee is also using a research based perspective derived from an architecture journal article in which a study was conducted right here in Center City Allentown. The study gathered information on residents of diverse cultural backgrounds and also of their individual perspectives. Our community outreach will address resident concerns and outlooks brought up in this research.

When complete, residents will be given an easier choice of colors to choose from by being able to use the OAPA Façade Paint Color Guide.
