Broken Arrow has again garnered national attention for its quality of life, as it recently clocked in as the 8th best place to live in the Southwest.
The ranking came from Livability.com’, which recognized the city’s “elusive balance of big-city amenities, robust economy, and small-town charm.”
Broken Arrow was ranked between Edmond at number 7 and Norman at number 9.
The city has been named to a Livability.com list for the second time in three months. In June, Broken Arrow made the list of Top 100 Best Places to Live in the U.S.
“With safe neighborhoods, affordable homes, and community gems like the 1,500-seat Broken Arrow Performing Arts Center, it’s easy to see why this fast-growing city is such a draw for young families, retirees, veterans, and more,” the article said.
It also noted Broken Arrow’s investment in the $6 million jobs creation package that helped Flight Safety International build a state-of-the-art flight simulator facility near the corner of Kenosha and Lynn Lane and the 90-acre Innovation District that is in the design phase for southern Broken Arrow.
It will feature residences, businesses, and educational components to strengthen the talent pipeline for the area’s high-tech industries.
Broken Arrow boasts a booming small business sector with locally owned restaurants, shopping, services and entertainment.
“There are plenty of things to do in Broken Arrow, and residents love the tight-knit community with an affordable cost of living.”
