The City of Mesa's Office of Economic Development has launched a new branded signage program for the Falcon District in northeast Mesa as part of the effort to promote the District as a destination for aerospace, defense, manufacturing and technology companies. The signage program uses the new Falcon District logo and includes 15-foot, lighted pylon monument signs at Greenfield Road and Higley Road, both south of Loop 202, and more than 50 brilliantly-colored banners and traffic signal wraps around the Falcon District.
"The Falcon District is one of the most important areas, not only in District 5, but in the entire City of Mesa," District 5 Councilmember and Vice Mayor David Luna said. "I think this is an important step as Mesa continues to move forward in building the identity of the Falcon District."
The Falcon District is anchored by Falcon Field Airport and encompasses more than 35 square miles of retail, commercial and industrial parks, as well as quality residential neighborhoods. Companies such as Boeing, MD Helicopters, Northrop Grumman, Special Devices Inc. and NAMMO Talley have major operations in the Falcon District.
"This new branded signage program will help to define the Falcon District as a vibrant advanced manufacturing hub, ideal for medical technology companies, advanced business services and next generation aerospace and defense," Bill Jabjiniak, City of Mesa Economic Development Director, said.
The signage program is part of a broader branding and marketing strategy that resulted from recommendations detailed in the Falcon Field Economic Activity Area Strategic Plan published in September 2014. The plan contained several action items for the District including increased emphasis on business attraction, expansion and retention activities, as well as branding and marketing. Additional signage is planned for key locations in the Falcon District.
