The City of Broken Arrow will host a workshop on May 31 to engage residents and business owners about redeveloping the Elm Place and New Orleans (101st) Street area. The workshop will be held from 6-7:30 p.m. at the Broken Arrow Nazarene Church, 401 W. New Orleans St.
Attendees will gain insight into market trends and explore ideas that can improve retail health and vitality for a part of Broken Arrow that has seen retailers relocate to other areas, such as the Hobby Lobby. Jason Claunch, president of Catalyst Commercial and a national expert in retail, will speak at 6:45 p.m. The Catalyst team will be available to answer questions and solicit feedback before and after the presentation.
Retail plays a critical role in Broken Arrow’s economy by supporting area residents and serving as an amenity for area employees. The City of Broken Arrow and the Broken Arrow Economic Development Corporation selected the Catalyst team to conduct a study and develop a plan to improve commercial quality at Elm and New Orleans.
“Catalyst has a strong track record of providing creative and innovative ideas for other commercial districts across Oklahoma,” said Norm Stephens, Economic Development Coordinator. “We’re excited to use ideas from this process and develop policies to improve retail quality for all of Broken Arrow.”
