Comprehensive Plan update continues with future growth scenarios

Broken Arrow Next

The City of Broken Arrow will host an Open House to collect feedback and comments on the next phase of the Comprehensive Plan Update. Stakeholders will review future growth scenarios, including the current development trend and alternative growth opportunities for the future.


The open house is scheduled for Thursday, June 21 from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. at Central on Main (210 N. Main Street).


During the Open House, attendees will also have a chance to provide input on their vision for the future of parks and recreation in the community. All Broken Arrow residents, businesses, and other interested persons are invited to participate in this important meeting regarding the future of the City.


The Comprehensive Plan is an aspirational and strategic policy document to help guide the City’s future development pattern and further enhance quality of life over the next twenty years. Since the last Comprehensive Plan adopted in 1997, Broken Arrow has seen significant growth and its estimated population has climbed to approximately 112,000—making it Oklahoma’s fourth largest City. Today an update is needed to proactively prepare and respond to new and emerging market conditions in Broken Arrow.  Through this 18-month planning process, many future community needs will be identified, prioritized, and incorporated into the Comprehensive Plan. The scenarios presented at this open house will guide the recommendations in the final plan.  


Additionally, the City of Broken Arrow has initiated an update to the city’s Parks and Recreation Master Plan. This plan will identify needs and develop strategies to enhance the parks and recreation system. Part of the open house meeting on Thursday, June 21 will focus on introducing the plan process and seeking input from residents on their vision for the future of parks and recreation in Broken Arrow.


The plan development process for the Comprehensive Plan and the Parks and Recreation Master Plan Update is being led by Halff Associates Inc., professional planning consultants helping the City of Broken Arrow develop the plans.
