The Broken Arrow Chamber of Commerce says the city keeps booming and the future looks bright.

The more Broken Arrow grows, the better it is for people who live here. They’ll have more shops to visit and more places to go.

Steve Easley was given an award at Thursday's luncheon for the jobs he has brought to the city.

"It's humbling, because I know what other guys are doing, other people are doing in Broken Arrow and the commitment that other people are making,” said Easley. “So to be recognized, I obviously appreciate it, but really the city has done everything. I have benefitted from their efforts."

The president of the Broken Arrow Chamber of Commerce, Jennifer Conway, said the city wants to bring more businesses to town and that takes planning.

"Broken Arrow is growing exponentially, and we're having to turn people away because we don't have the buildings yet,” said Conway. “So we're looking through that strategically- how can we get the buildings to get the people here?"

She said a lot of people have expressed interest in coming to Broken Arrow and investing here.

"We are hearing from investors and developers that we're the place they want to go,” said Conway. “So we need to make sure we do that the right way."

She believes it’s important to recognize the great businesses in town and how they’re helping the economy.

"When you look around, things just happen. But you don't understand that it takes the right people, the right place, the right mixture to make that happen,” said Conway. “A lot of that is in the private sector. So without the private sector, economic development wouldn't happen."

Easley said it’s great that the city is thinking ahead and doing what it takes to bring more development to the area.

"They understand what it takes to draw national retailers into the city,” said Easley. “They appreciate that we have to have that residential density to draw national retailers. We don't see that everywhere.”

The chamber said the five people honored have contributed 300 jobs to the city of Broken Arrow.
