Letter: Not amused with Bell's Amusement Park plan for Broken Arrow

I live in a subdivision located in east Broken Arrow. Our community and the many people living in this area use 71st Street as our primary — if not only — access to and from town. Living in this area, you don’t go much of anywhere doesn’t start on 71st Street.

Many of us are opposed to having Bell’s Amusement Park at the proposed location for multiple reasons.

We dislike the idea of fighting that traffic every time we drive through the area. Remember when you drove past the old Bell’s entrance? Even during non-fair times, the vehicle and pedestrian traffic was horrible.

The last thing Broken Arrow needs is a duplication of 71st Street between Mingo and Garnett roads imprinted to the section of 71st Street between County Line Road (193rd Street) and the turnpike.

We don’t want the lights or noise.

We don’t want the criminal element naturally drawn to this type operation that close to our home.

This proposed expansion of Broken Arrow business is ill conceived and unwanted.

Finally, at what point did the citizenry get an opportunity to comment on this use of land? Was there a zoning change? Was it advertised? We went from knowing nothing about the matter to an announcement it was a done deal. How did that happen?

"In my opinion, Stitt recognized that Jones' execution would have resulted in significant negative publicity as well as negative economic consequences to the state of Oklahoma, to include the loss of future Hollywood movies shot in Oklahoma as well as the loss of other businesses and ventures relocating or starting up in Oklahoma," writes Tulsa resident Steven Terry.
