Welcome from Mayor Craig Thurmond

It is my pleasure and honor as Mayor to welcome you Broken Arrow. Broken Arrow has a rich history dating back to before Oklahoma statehood. Today, Broken Arrow enjoys all the modern conveniences within a safe and enjoyable city. I’m proud to say that we are frequently rated among the safest places to live in the U.S. and the best communities to buy a home.

Economic development is the engine that runs our city. From our bustling merchant centers like New Orleans Square to our award-winning Rose District, retail development opportunities abound. Our City and BAEDC staff work as a team to recruit and retain retail, manufacturing, and service sector employers in Broken Arrow. Broken Arrow boasts the 3rd largest manufacturing sector concentration in the state of Oklahoma. These companies and the many others that have set up in our city depend on our well-educated and skilled workforce.

Whether you’re here for business, pleasure, a child’s sports tournament, an industry conference at Stoney Creek, or looking to make a home here, I want to welcome you to Broken Arrow. Our city council and staff stand ready to assist you with relocation or expansion plans. Welcome home to Broken Arrow.
