Mesa Takes Steps to Enhance the Quality of Life and Recreation Amenities

September 8, 2021 at 8:08 am

Mesa is launching the Footprint for the Future Campaign to encourage residents to provide input in the Parks, Recreation and Community Facilities (PRCF) Comprehensive Plan and the City's first-ever Climate Action Plan. Both efforts seek to develop a collective vision for a more prosperous, vibrant and thriving Mesa. Citizens can participate in six drop-in style community workshops this month to provide feedback through activities designed to identify key issues and opportunities for their neighborhoods.

The PRCF Comprehensive Plan will guide present and future growth and development of Mesa parks, public spaces, recreation programs and facilities. This master plan will use national benchmarks and professional expertise, staff and resident input, demographics and other community attributes to provide a 20-year, comprehensive analysis of the recreational and public resources and needs of Mesa.

The Climate Action Plan, a City Council priority initiative, calls for reducing greenhouse gas emissions and establishing strategies to increase sustainability in all City operations. The plan focuses on six areas to guide City efforts towards a healthy environment. Those focus areas will be the topic of a series of virtual lunchtime meetings this fall.

The community workshops will be held throughout the City from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.:

Tuesday, Sept. 14 at Brimhall Aquatic Complex, 4949 E. Southern Ave.
Wednesday, Sept. 15 at Mesa Aquatic Parks and Sports Field Maintenance, 6945 E. Decatur St.
Thursday, Sept. 16 at Hale Elementary School Multipurpose Room, 1425 N. 23rd St.
Tuesday, Sept. 21 at Eastmark Community Center "The Mark", 10100 E. Ray Road
Wednesday, Sept. 22 at Eagles Community Center, 828 E. Broadway Road
