TULSA, Okla. (AP) – The American Bicycle Association and Arizona-based USA BMX have officially announced their move to Tulsa.

The announcement made Wednesday came a day after voters approved an extension of a tax program known as Vision Tulsa. The program includes $15 million for a stadium and USA BMX headquarters with a training center for bicycle motocross athletes and office space at the former Drillers Stadium.

The move is expected to bring more than 50 jobs and have a $10 million economic impact each year in the Tulsa area.

Tulsa Sports Commission President Ray Hoyt said that without approval of the tax extension, the organization would not have come to Tulsa
