It all starts with a spark of imagination and leads to what’s next for the community. Imagine Mesa is a new program designed to engage residents in shaping a vision for the city’s future. Residents are encouraged to go online to submit, discuss and support ideas that focus on five topics.
Each topic has a forum where imaginations are key to creating solutions and opportunities for Mesa. The topics range from how the city can better attract bright minds and grow its economy to how to build on Mesa’s thriving arts and culture scene downtown.
“Imagine Mesa is a great way for our residents to develop and discuss ideas for Mesa’s future,” Mayor John Giles said. “It’s easy to click on the site and join in the conversation. I encourage everyone to check it out.”
Imagine Mesa will hit the road this summer and its first stop is the Republic Services Arizona Celebration of Freedom on July 4 in Mesa. Come see what Imagine Mesa is all about in the air-conditioned Mesa Convention Center, 263 N. Center St., from 6 to 10 p.m. There will be a large interactive display with volunteers to help explain the process and get ideas posted.
Or, join in the conversation anytime at www.imaginemesa.com until Oct. 31.
The ideas will be evaluated and prioritized by the Imagine Mesa Advisory Committee and presented to the Mesa City Council for potential implementation.
