Main Street Broken ArrowWelcome to Main Street Broken Arrow Oklahoma!  From the time Broken Arrow became a town in 1903 until the mid 1960's the population remained fairly constant.  However when the Broken Arrow Expressway opened in the mid 1960's everything changed!

Despite a growing population, the quality of public safety in Broken Arrow never changed. Broken Arrow rated the stste of Oklahoma's Safest City in 2004 and #46 in the nation, based on major crime reports in cities of 75,000 or more.  In 2006 Broken Arrow again earned the rating of Oklahoma's Safest City and was ranked 20th in the nation.  The latest survey in 2007 recognized Broken Arrow, Oklahoma as the 22nd safest city in the nation.

Broken Arrow is one of only 2 cities in Oklahoma to be named on the list of "AMERICA'S MOST LIVEABLE SMALL CITIES!"  Broken Arrow has also been honored as a "TREE CITY USA" every year since 2001 by the National Arbor Day Foundation for our committment to trees - not only in our parks but the community as a whole. 

Broken Arrow is still building new homes at the fastest rate in Northeastern Oklahoma.  There are plenty of options and opportunites in Broken ArrowBroken Arrow also encompasses 2 counties both Wagoner County and Tulsa County

How is the job market these days in and around Tulsa and Broken Arrow?  I know at some times companies leaving the area have been a problem.

Hi Joan - The job market here remains pretty steady.  I have been her since 1996 and Broken Arrow has really grown with development and revitalization.

After the devastating Ice Storm we had in December we lost alot of trees.  Some of these were over hundreds of years old.  I had a beautiful Redbud Tree (Oklahoma State Tree) that was over 100years old and it is gone!  My next blog will be on the Ice Storm! Thanks for the comments

My Parents, and brother and his family live in Broken Arrow in Forest Ridge.  That storm really changed the whole landscape of that area.  It really was devastating!  I couldn't believe how full the parks were where they were dumping the trees.

Hi Cindy - They still have most of those dump sites open.  I knew the city would help the residents during this time.  Thanks for the view!

Kelly, being originally from Kansas I thought I was familiar with most of Oklahoma but I am not familiar with Broken Arrow.  It sounds like a very nice place to live. How far from the big cities?  Is it close to Tulsa?

Hi Marchel - We are 15 minutes from downtown Tulsa.  Broken Arrow is located just SouthEast of Tulsa.  We are also 30 minutes from Muskogee and about 3.5 hours to the Texas/Oklahoma line on Hwy 75..  Thanks for the comment
