The Broken Arrow City Council will host a Town Hall meeting regarding Vision2 projects proposals.

The meeting is schedule for September 16th at 6 p.m. Central on Main, 210 N. Main St.

Several project recommendations have been made to council from the Build A Better Broken Arrow Committee and the Broken Arrow Economic Development Corporation which include infrastructure improvements and public safety projects.

“The next step in this process is to gather input from our residents on what projects they would like to see included,” said Broken Arrow Mayor Craig Thurmond. “We want our residents to participate in the process.”
The council approved resolution No. 755 at its Aug. 21 meeting which encourages residents of Broken Arrow to vote Nov. 6, 2012.

The $748.8 million Vision2 proposal would extend the 0.6 percent Vision 2025 sales tax rate through 2029. Broken Arrow’s portion of the Quality of Life package would be approximately $44 million.

Vision2 Proposals:

1.Approximately $386 million for economic development – improvements on key industrial sites at Tulsa International Airport and a $50 million closing fund to offer final incentives to companies considering locating in the area.


2.Approximately $361 million package for quality-of-life improvements to be selected by the county and each of its cities
