  1. We Are Mesa Campaign

    The city could:
    1) make commercials showcasing the citizens of the citizens.
    2) Make a documentary about the citizens about the people.
    3) Have a showcase event at the Mesa Arts Center where they set up something similar to a farmers market where they showcase the artists and the small businesses of Mesa.

    The goal would be to capture the soul of Mesa and show it to the people in Mesa and people outside of Mesa.

      • Subway...NOT light rail.

        We have the very best subterranean soils for tunneling and the technology to tunnel up to 1/2 mile per day. Think of the benefits, save billions just by avoiding abandonment and relocation of all the utilities under the streets. Eliminate surface congestion. Cool, safe and secure platforms below ground. Ease of routing to the best served areas without disturbing the road/street grids. Light rail is so 1800's. Subways are best and our valley is ideal for building them. Come on people, lets move into the future with subways not surface trains.

        • Water Fountains Downtown

          As a public amenity improvement, the city or maybe even private owners should consider placing several water fountains alone the downtown pedestrian corridor.

              • 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.

                  • MCC has a shortage of parking. Fiesta Mall has a shortage of customers.

                    Why not encourage MCC students to park in the outer-most parking spots surrounding Fiesta Mall. Set up a shuttle bus service to transport students back and forth. Perhaps include the satellite shopping malls on Alma School and Southern in that shuttle service as well. If there is concern over filling the parking spots near to the entrances of the mall, require a token to ride the shuttle bus that is obtained by parking in distant lots.

                        • Rotate the Phoenix Marathon route. The noise & traffic in front of my house woke me at 6AM at Red Mt. Ranch.

                          Please change the route of the marathon. No one asked me if I wanted to have it go on my street at 6:30AM which I don't. Let's put it on your street.

                                • Extend the route of the Buzz

                                  Extend the route of the Buzz to come north of Brown Rd. If you live north of Brown you either have to walk down to Country Club & Brown, or pay to get on the 112 bus to get down to the Buzz bus stop. This free service should be more widely available to Mesa residents, especially those of us who pay property taxes, which I assume help fund the Buzz. If Scottsdale & Tempe can do it why can't Mesa?

                                      A park should be created in downtown mesa were all the “Old Historic” hotel , business signs can be on display (example: Mesa's Diving Lady sign) Along with the sign (which can be elevated on a pole) there can be some information on the History of that particular sign. This will give people an oppurtunity to understand the some of Mesa's history.

                                      • Blighted Transmission Line Corridor - Don't forget about the old neighborhoods!

                                        I am happy about voter approval of the cubs facility and other large park developments in the City. However, it seems to me that most of the investment is concentrated in the newer areas of the City. I would strongly recommend that city officials take a look at the section bordered by Stapley, Brown, Gilbert and University. In parts of this section, the transmission line corridor is not maintained and has created a blight on the neighborhood. The City finally stepped up and is maintaining the retention basin/transmission easement that is adjacent to the north side of the canal. However,…

                                        • Art students from MPS High Schools, picked & supervised by teachers, decorate utilities structures with urban art. Reward: recognition by Co

                                          For West Mesa: a couple of urban art such structures already exist at Extension and Main and East of Dobson on Main.
                                          I believe those were done by paid artists (not sure) The ones I propose would be done by our own art students (MPS ONLY!), picked and supervised by their teachers. They would be rewarded with City Council recognition (ribbon or whatever!) NO MONEY, except supplies. Studies show that urban art PREVENTS graffiti. Gives neighborhoods pride.
