A Letter from Chair Davis Robson
As the chair of the Broken Arrow Economic Development Corporation, I am excited to kick off 2023. Last year, the BAEDC, with feedback from our community partners, cast a vison for our community and I am thrilled to share that Amplify BA, our strategic vision, is funded.
Having served as chair of the Amplify BA campaign, as an investor in the campaign, and as a business and landowner in Broken Arrow, it is clear there is incredible opportunity for growth that lays before us. But there is much work to capitalize on the opportunity. We have 4 years to create 1,000 new primary jobs and increase capital investment in Broken Arrow by over $150 million. That is not done by the BAEDC alone, but by us – the investors, the businesses, the partners. The BAEDC team will continue to assist with the necessary resources in economic development, entrepreneurship, workforce development and talent attraction. The overwhelming support of the Amplify BA campaign will allow us to increase those resources.
Thank you to those who have made the commitment. The Broken Arrow Economic Development board and staff are dedicated to implementing the plan, as well as keeping our investors and partners involved and informed.
As Broken Arrow grows, our businesses grow. As our businesses grow, Broken Arrow grows. It is a win-win.
– Davis Robson
