“I love Broken Arrow. I’m born and raised right here… I love what we’ve got going on. I’ve told people, seven or eight years ago you could stand on Main Street shoot a shot gun down main street and you wouldn’t hit a thing. Now with the Rose District, in place, everything he has done, getting all that ready. It’s amazing how you see people roaming up and down main street. My dad even said something. He loves it.”

“Being a business owner in the Rose District, I obviously have invested interest in that continuing to grow…. I think if that were to stop, the city would notice that.“

“In the last 12 months, we have seen some pretty massive growth. We’re not a new start up company… After being in business since 1985, year over year we have seen over 30% growth in the last 12 months. When you have somebody who is anti-growth, obviously it’s harder to get a water line put in, it’s harder to get streets put in. There’s so many things that become difficult for us. So we end up in a scenario where it takes us a lot longer which makes it more expensive for us to put our lots in at a cost that is more affordable for the homebuyer.

First of all, Craig’s background, he understands land development. He understands business because he’s been in that role before, been a business owner. He sees things behind the scenes.

Craig is the kind of guy who’s going to do what he says he’s going to do, and we’ve seen that for many years.”

“It’s the best small town with a big town feel.”

“As I think about Broken Arrow in the last 8 years, my wife and I, call Broken Arrow home. We have lived in Tulsa through various portions of our marriage but we call Broken Arrow home. I think of, and we have 5 kids, I think of now we’re gonna go look for something fun over the weekend, we might go to the Warren Theater, and that was not an option 8 years ago. We might take the kids to Bass Pro Shop and go look around there. That wasn’t in Broken Arrow. I feel like that whole shopping center by the bass pro wasn’t there 8 years ago.”

“This is what’s popular all over the country and the phrase is ‘walkability’ and it’s nice to be able to be in an apartment upstairs and a retail space downstairs and be able to walk down the street and go to a couple different restaurants. This is huge all over the country and is some of the most thriving cities all across the nation. It’s awesome to see it coming to Broken Arrow.”

“If the Rose District had stayed like it did in 2011, we would not still be in business, period. Right? Because there was not much traffic…. If your car was on that road for any length of time, it was because it was broken down.“
