It all starts with a spark of imagination and leads to what's next for our community. Imagine Mesa is a new program designed to engage our residents in shaping a vision for our future. You 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 we can better attract bright minds and grow our economy to how we can build on our 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 our first stop is the Republic Services Arizona Celebration of Freedom, the coolest Fourth of July party in the state.
Come see what Imagine Mesa is all about in the air-conditioned Mesa Convention Center, 263 N. Center St., from 6 p.m. - 10 p.m. We'll have a large interactive display with volunteers to help explain the process and get your ideas posted.
Or, you can join in the conversation anytime at www.imaginemesa.com until October 31.
The ideas will be evaluated and prioritized by the Imagine Mesa Advisory Committee and presented to City Council for potential implementation.
