BROKEN ARROW, OK -- The Broken Arrow City Council has voted to remove the "blighted" designation from the Camino Villa mobile home park. 

During its August 3rd meeting, the council said the designation was removed with the understanding the neighborhood would emphasize a continued commitment to work with code enforcement and city staff on issues that still need to be addressed. 

"We have seen a significant change in the Camino Villa area," said  Broken Arrow Mayor Mike Lester. "We have shown tonight that the two groups can work together for the common good of the residents."  

In a news release from the city, the city council and the Homeowners Association for Camino Villa vowed to work together to maintain the work already completed by the residents and continue to improve the areas appearance. 

The Broken Arrow City Council and City Staff is appreciative of the efforts made by the residents of Camino Villa.   

The Camino Villa area was deemed "blighted" in January of 2008.
