        • Put a Starbucks in Downtown Mesa on Main St.

          Starbucks is a staple in every major city. With the Arts Center downtown, it is a great way to get patrons to walk for coffee before or after a show. This will help generate revenue for Mesa.

            • East Mesa - Hot Air Balloon Event

              East Mesa should capitalize on the superstition background and create a event where all arizonans can enjoy Hot Air Balloon Event. Away from the city, Great panaromic view of supersitition mountain and Phoenix city of lights on the other. City of Mesa can get some sales tax out of this event from locals and snowbirds alike,

                  • Construction Component Center / Sustainable Communities

                    The Williams Gateway area could be home to a consortium of companies that designs, builds and markets innovative green construction components. These components can be transported to building site where they are erected efficiently and affordably. The finished structures can provide high insulation, radiation barrier and state-of-the-art renewable energy features.

                    By combining these “mega green” housing and commercial structures into communities with other innovative green technologies like fencing, community solar plants and solar powered greenhouses with translucent panels they can truly become sustainable. These communities can provide low carbon footprint, near-zero energy consumption and high durability, low maintenance peaceful living.…

                    • Bring in an Anchor store, LL Bean's is a destination store, if located near new rail, bringstraffic

                      LL Bean is a destination store, it would bring in traffic and other businesses wanting to be near it. The downtown would be upgraded and attract many new stores. If it is located near the new rail, its an attraction to people in other cities.

                      • Use approval voting for all one-winner elections.

                        Approval voting allows voters to vote for more than one candidate, even for a one-winner election. It sounds strange at first, but it's actually a much better way to avoid spoiler effects and choose the candidate who best represents the most people.

                        See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Approval_voting

                        • We need an INDOOR pool!

                          I really wish we had an indoor pool; I am very susceptible to skin cancer from being in the sun, but I LOVE to swim!!

                          • charge small fee for those that dont keep there yard clean

                            alot of people just dont care about how there house looks like from the outside it makes the whole street look bad and "ghetto" so i say there should be a small fee every month to those who dont take care of there yards its good for the neighborhood and the city is making money and with that money they can put it to good use..

                            • Transform Vacant Best Buy into an Educational Center

                              Former Best Buy Center- This center would be a perfect location for DeVry, Univ. of Phoenix or even overflow for MCC. New store fronts and remodeling of stores into classrooms would encourage students in the area to consider higher education. The former Best Buy store could be remodeled into an indoor sports facility or an administration office.

                                Please consider recreational improvements to the Ranch West Basin, Jacinto Road just off of Gilbert Road. The Ranch West community recently painted the wall here as part of an Eagle Scout project. We’d like to see three park benches, additional mature shade trees and a ramada for meetings and picnics. For years, the expanded use of basins for these purposes has not been encouraged by the city; their use was functional, for storm drainage, rather than for enjoyment. But this seems to be changing with the creative leveraging of city resources, because of budgeting. Ranch West neighbors and others, in…

                                  • 4 Hoops Basketball -- A revolutionary new basketball game aimed at making Mesa the home of the 4HB

                                    Early development of 4 Hoops Basketball and 4HB leagues can help put Mesa on the international map as home of the 4-point shot, of game-changing basketball, and of sports innovation not seen since James Naismith invented the game of basketball 120 years ago. Simple new rules, simple to organize, and low cost to implement. Mesa could lead 4HB revolution easily with interest from local B&G Clubs, YMCA, Church Leagues and Parks and Rec. iMesa should at least take a look at my PowerPoint explaining 4HB and see if it's an idea worth pursuing. Mesa has nothing to lose and everything…

                                    • Localized Health Care Co-op for Small Businesses

                                      Small businesses have a hard time providing health insurance and retaining talented employees. Utilize the local network of health providers to offer a local, affordable health plan that people and businesses can buy into. By cutting out third party insurers more money will go directly to the healthcare provider, reducing costs. This will have a positive economic impact, increase livability and could make Mesa a leader in fixing the US health care crisis.
