The City of Broken Arrow will host a public meeting to share the findings of a redevelopment study done for the Elm Place and New Orleans (101st) Street commercial district. The meeting will take place from 7-8:30 p.m., Tuesday, June 18, at the Broken Arrow Nazarene Church, 401 W. New Orleans St.
In early 2018, the City of Broken, in partnership with the Broken Arrow Economic Development Corporation (EDC), hired a consultant to study and develop a plan to improve commercial and retail quality at Elm and New Orleans. Neighbors have seen retailers relocate to other areas, such as the Hobby Lobby, and the Reasor’s grocery store recently closed.
The consultant, Catalyst Commercial, has spent the last year conducting surveys, talking with business and property owners, as well as leasing agents, and investigating how other cities have revitalized struggling retail and commercial districts.
“We’ve heard from the community for several years that they want to see new opportunities around Elm and New Orleans,” said Economic Development Manager Norm Stephens. “I’m very excited to be able to share Catalyst’s findings with residents and look forward to further discussions and action regarding an important commercial district in Broken Arrow.”
