Ignore it!

SafeWise, the author of this list. sells home security products.

In my view .. that Venita is the nearest community to the NE corner of the state makes the list very suspect. I find it very strange that one of the state's most visited tourist destination, that is also a top senior retirement area is unlisted. .

I don't even see any cities on the list with perhaps Nowata Oklahoma qualifying as the lone city on the list.

I first that thought also, but I guess you could say that Broken Arrow is part of "greater Tulsa" and Edmond is part of "greater OKC", so neither of them "qualify" for city status.

The whole thing seems contrived to me.

I was just being a Joker , actually I don't consider any town a ( City ) that's under 100,000 population , and that means that OK only has (4) cities that is..... OKC.... Tulsa... .Broken Arrow....Norman....and maybe someday Lawton Oklahoma will join the ranks of being a real bono fide city......

Broken Arrow is what we call " A Satellite City " of Tulsa Oklahoma and Norman
is " A Satellite City " of OKC.......

I don't know how communities get status in Oklahoma. Where I live a community applies to the state for a title of City, Town, or Village. The applying entity must meet certain requirement set by the state to earn the title. Once earned it must be displayed in every legal document including official web pages.

Every place on the list has the word City in its official name title, and in its official City website. It doesn't have anything to do with Metro areas, population, etc..

Try a search..: City of _______, Oklahoma official website
