Meet City of Broken Arrow leaders at the first Community Services Expo Saturday, Feb. 18, at the Stoney Creek Conference Center, 200 W. Albany St., from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Residents and people interested in moving to Broken Arrow will have the opportunity to learn about street construction projects, Utilities, Parks and Recreation programs, code enforcement, city planning, and so much more!

This event is replacing the annual HOA Workshop after 23 years and becoming more inclusive.

"The Community Services Expo is a great opportunity for all residents to get their questions answered by going to the sessions and talking to the staff," Mayor Debra Wimpee said. "We look forward to seeing everyone there on Saturday, Feb. 18th."

The expo will be the first of its kind for a city in the metro. One of the most significant changes from the previous years is the three simultaneous breakout sessions in Stoney Creek's large meeting rooms with an array of City specific topics. The city has scheduled 22 breakout sessions covering 19 different subjects.

Breakout session topics include:

  • Your Broken Arrow Parks: A Virtual Guided Tour
  • City Budget Overview
  • Capital Project Life Cycle and 2018 GO Bond Updates
  • GTCA: Government Tort Claims Act
  • Recreation 101: Overview of City Parks & Recreation Programs and Services
  • Fentanyl Awareness and Narcan Deployment
  • Your Water (and the bill)
  • New Orleans Square Revitalization
  • Pavement Management Report
  • Transparency in Government
  • Fire Department 411
  • And so much more!

"Our Community Services Expo is a great opportunity for citizens to come out and learn more about local government and how it operates," City Manager Michael Spurgeon said. "This event is open to everyone who lives in BA, and I believe that everyone that attends will come away with some great information about operations and some of the most important programs and initiatives facing our city at this time."

Booths will be set up and staffed by representatives of the different City departments for attendees to ask specific questions and meet one-on-one with city employees.
