Significant growth in south Broken Area has focused the city’s efforts in revitalizing a once-thriving intersection of Elm Place and New Orleans Street (101st). A Citizens Advisory Committee has been appointed to continue to gather details and make recommendations to the City Council. The Broken Arrow Chamber of Commerce is committed to assisting New Orleans Square merchants and encouraging more private investment in the Square. The retail district is home to an array of businesses including retail, restaurants, service-based businesses, and one-of-a-kind boutiques.  Businesses and area residents have helped create a vision of a beautifully landscaped, walkable shopping destination. Recent renovation and reuse of the former Hobby Lobby store, the proposed reopening of a movie theater, and other private improvements show that the area is both viable and vital to continued sustained growth in south BA.
