The City previously held three public meetings in February to learn residents’ priorities for proposed projects totaling nearly $280 million. In order to keep the ad valorem (property) tax rate the same, the City must bring the final package down to around $210 million.

“There were some very difficult decisions to make to reduce the proposed project list,” said City Manager Michael Spurgeon. “Without a doubt, every project on that preliminary list deserved to be on there because the investments made to infrastructure have a direct effect on the economy and quality of life in our community. Thanks to the feedback we received in February, both at the public meetings and by residents directly contacting the City and the Council, we were able to identify many projects that are a major priority for the people that live in Broken Arrow.”

A total of 94 projects remain on the pre-final list, including:

  • Widen Houston (81st) St from Garnett to Aspen
  • Widen 23rd St (County Line) from Omaha (51st) to Albany (61st) St
  • Improve intersections at 9th St (Lynn Lane)
  • Improve drainage in neighborhoods
  • Construct Fire Station No. 7
  • Construct meeting center for veterans
  • Construct Senior Citizen Center annex facility
  • And more


The City Council will decide on the final package in June. Residents will vote on the bond package August 28.
