      • More Disc parks around the valley

        i am an avid disc golf player however I find that there is only one park in Mesa and I have to drive into Scottsdale or even Fountain Hills. It would be nice to go have a few parks to chose from close enough to home that I don't feel like i'm making a day trip out of it. I find that the one park is often crowded and which makes me feel rushed.

          • The light rail

            Expanding the light rail further East would improve job stimulus as well as helping the community gather from a further radius. It would also help the Fiesta mall build business and stay up to date which would make the community more of a Tempe Marketplace type atmosphere.

                        • all small city parks

                          i like the idea of having a cover over the small parks with small playgrounds. it helps to keep the not so hot in the summer time and i like the idea of a fence or gate around it to keep kids in and safe.

                            • Alley annexation

                              Annex all alleys over to the property owners making them financially responsible for the upkeep of the alleys.  Once that happens valuable volunteer resources could be put to better use. Why should the community continue to foot the bill when many of the alley waste is the resdients disposing of items themselves or not caring enough to clear vegetation from behind homes. Maybe if they were allowed to expand the property line or block them off completely our illegal activity & homeless situation may improve as well as the feeling of being safe.  
                              When does any of this illegal…

                              • Finish Residential street projects once you begin them

                                Streets will go into residential neighborhoods, scrape a one foot square in many places, fix it unevenly & then create larger cracks to seal, yet they have yet to go back & fix the streets completely leaving once good residential streets looking very unmaintained and horrible. If kids ride skateboards they are more likely to be injured in their own neighborhood than on a main city street.  My thought is to finish projects completely that you start. We need to have pride & be safe where we live & where kids play and that is our residential neighborhoods. If the…

                                • Designate Mesa Restaurant Week

                                  Thanks to Mesa's cultural diversity, we have amazing restaurants. Mexican, Thai, Vietnamese, Korean, pasties, Native American cuisine... we're the best-kept secret in the Valley. Let's not be! Foodies should discover Mesa and spend their money at our local dining establishments. If we had a Restaurant Week promoted through Facebook, inexpensive maps and a media event with participating retailers, we'd have a foodie invasion on our hands, and many return visitors later.

                                        • Electric shuttles btwn city buildings downtown

                                          Save fuel and promote clean air in downtown by providing electric cart shuttles for Mesa City employees to move between buildings for meetings. Electric golf carts could be driven and operated by AmeriCorps volunteers or retirees looking for ways to volunteer and be involved and used to shuttle city employees between buildings such as Solid Waste and MCP.
