Owasso Continues Growth

According to City Planner Chip McCulley, Owasso residential building permits broke the city’s monthly record, with 60 permits issued in the month of May.
That trend is not likely to slow as the city approved a preliminary plat for Aravon, a 93-lot residential addition on more than 30 acres north of Sawgrass II.
Owasso’s commercial growth also continues as Rickey Hayes, economic development director, said a fourth hotel – after the Candlewood Suites, Hampton Inn and Suites and Marriott – has shown an interest in locating in Owasso because of its close proximity to the airport and retail options.
Hayes said many of the hotels in the immediate area of the airport are older units, and according to developers’ research, the new budget rooms – the $80- to $100-a-night room – is the market for the business traveler.
He also mentioned possible “spin off” resulting from hotel development, such as added interest by restaurants.
