Tulsa County Approves Grants

The Board of Tulsa County Commissioners recently approved two new contracts for federal funds going the City of Broken Arrow.

County Commissioners approved funding 2010 projects in the amount of $390,438 for the Central Park Playground and Sieling Park Stormwater System. In addition, funding was released for 2008 projects including Downtown Streetscape, Central Park Shelter and Main Street Improvement, along with 2009 projects including Broken Arrow Heights 4th Addition Street Improvements.

Projects are paid for by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development () Urban Counties Community Development Block Grant () program. Tulsa County started receiving these grant funds in 2008. Projects are funded through a competitive process of ranking proposals based on guidelines.

Broken Arrow consistently ranks well due to the city’s ability to match funding and complete projects.

“The City of Broken Arrow is one of our great municipal partners,” says Commissioner Fred Perry. “Commissioner Smaligo and I worked along with Broken Arrow Mayor Mike Lester and City Engineer Tom Hendrix to secure the funding for these projects. These funds make a big difference in the community from parks to streets.”

“Our thanks goes to INCOG for their help in administering these funds,” Perry adds. The following is a list of the Urban County projects and funding ongoing in Broken Arrow.
