    • There is a school here for learning video and filming. We should be doing good movie making.

      We need to beat out the bad movies coming from Hollwood. There are too many resources here not to.

      • Change some of the traffic lights on side roads to a red or yellow blinking light between the hours of 11pm to 6am.

        Some of the lights leading out of neighborhoods (Sterling and Brown Rd), for example, or lights leading onto/off of the highway (McDowell road and the 202) take forever to change during off-hours, thus leaving drivers frustrated. It would be easier if the lights were set to either a 4-way red blink, or a yellow blink on main roads and red blink on the side streets that connect to the main roads.

          • Buckhorn baths

            After a trip to Ireland we stopped at a row of cottages that had artist and marketers that were creating and making various crafts and art objects. The Buckhorn is a perfect set up for this as it has the minimal room, the bathroom, power for shops and crafts ( altho some electrical may have to be updated)parking, the place for a dayspa, I purchased an umbrella (silk with Irish mods, ceramic jewelry from a ceramic working on site and photo gift cards. All working from their shops. The tour busses stopped there regularly, 2 while we were there, and…

            • Narrow the streets around Downtown Mesa

              The wide streets throughout downtown are great for doing u-turns in a wagon with a team of four horses, but they do nothing for making downtown FEEL like downtown. Add medians, bike corridors, widen the sidewalks for big streetside patios...anything to make the streets of downtown Human-sized and walkable. Perhaps consider blocking off a couple of those streets and make it an outdoor mall like in Boulder, Co.

                Stretching from Sycamore to Mesa Drive on Main Street, the light rail extension is a key piece of the Downtown Focus. Stations will be located at Alma School Road, Country Club Drive, Center Street and Mesa Drive allowing passengers access to the many shops, restaurants, museums and other cultural attractions in the corridor.

              • More Mesa Parks with no fees or permits required

                Mesa Parks should be more public and less private. A common experience at Mesa parks is that having fun means permit or fee required. Few decent tennis courts exist in Mesa Parks without cost. Enjoying more tennis time means adding no fee tennis courts to existing Mesa parks, and reducing or eliminating court fees on the existing ones. Picture a facility like the Gene Autry Park minus the $5 playing fee!

                Also, while many soccer fields exist in Mesa Parks a substantial number require a permit to play; not everyone wants to join a league in order to kick the…

                          • Dog rinsing station

                            I believe that most dog owners would be willing to pay a small fee to rinse/dry their pet after play time at the dog park. I frequently visit the park with our dog and there are times I don't want to put her in our vehicle because of the dust/slobber/mud acquired during our visit. It would be great to have the capability to give a quick rinse and dry before entering our vehicle. Soap wouldn't be required, just the capability to have a "quick rinse" and dry (with a towel from home) would be all that would be needed.

                                    • Erect block fences along Harris Dr. opposite Mesa High.

                                      A number of years back improvements were made to Gilbert Road where block fences were erected to give a uniform look along the road. They still look great. Similar walls opposite Mesa High school along Harris would hide an unsightly mix of broken walls and fences. Many newcomers to Mesa High are bused in along here. It would be nice for Mesa's first high school to give a good impression for the great school that it is. It is also in the 85204 area, which has been targeted for renewal.
