The draft of the General Plan results from community input from approximately 10,000 people who participated via three surveys and about 65 public events and presentations during 2023. A citizen advisory committee analyzed the community input with help from City staff, who incorporated information from existing plans and Mesa City Council strategic initiatives. The broad Plan includes three core values: The Land, The People and The Economy.

Should Mesa City Council approve the 2050 General Plan in mid-2024, Mesa residents will vote on it during the November 2024 election. Visit to learn more and access the draft of the General Plan.
