Broken Arrow Named Happiest City in Oklahoma
It seems only fitting that the website Zippia.com would choose “the happiest time of the year” to reveal the identity of the happiest city in Oklahoma.
Earning that distinction is Broken Arrow which was rated over 600 cities for “all the ingredients for happiness” which include a well-educated population, percent of households earning above $75,000, median home prices, a short commute to work and marriage rates
Oklahoma State Representatives Dean Davis, Ross Ford, T.J. Marti, and Stan May had the happy task of presenting a citation of congratulations to City of Broken Arrow officials at the regular city council meeting on Nov 3.
Broken Arrow is the fourth largest city in Oklahoma, with an estimated population of 113,000 people spread out over 61 square miles. It is also home to the third largest manufacturing hub in the state, with many employees working in the energy sector.
The Zippia rating underscores the fact Broken Arrow enjoys a high quality of life, characterized by low crime, high performing schools, affordable housing and easy access to many parks and recreational facilities. Polsters also note the city sets the standard by providing outstanding municipal programs and services.
Also making the top 10 list for Oklahoma were Bixby, Owasso and Bartlesville.
