All residents invited to submit their ideas at ImagineMesa.com
Imagine if you could help shape Mesa’s future. You can! Through the Imagine Mesa campaign, people who live, work, and play in Mesa can share their innovative ideas and offer feedback on community priorities to City leaders. Now through Oct. 31 is your chance to submit, discuss and support ideas that focus on five specific Vision Forums for the City:
- Play – Share your dreams for Mesa’s public spaces, trails and entertainment districts.
- Home – How do we keep neighborhoods safe, clean, and welcoming places to live?
- Green Future – What are your ideas for promoting sustainable development and the use of renewable resources in our city?
- Work – Offer your thoughts on how Mesa can grow its economy and attract employers of all sizes.
- Leading Innovation – How do you envision opportunities for all ages to learn, collaborate and prosper in Mesa?
Where to start. Go to ImagineMesa.com on your smartphone, tablet or computer. Pick which Vision Forum best represents your idea, and then submit your thoughts (photos welcome, too). Submit as many ideas as you’d like! More than 300 ideas have already been entered, so now’s your chance to join the conversation. You can also comment on your neighbors’ ideas or become a supporter of their ideas by clicking the “Me Too” button. Sharing, commenting on or supporting an idea enters you in the Imagine Mesa sweepstakes for a chance to win some not-too-shabby prizes, like Downtown Mesa gift cards and passes to the Mesa Arts Center.
Eastmark represented. Eastmark residents Matthew Law and Patrick Kee were appointed to the Imagine Mesa Citizen Advisory Committee where they’re spreading the word about the campaign through social media, speaking at community meetings, and attending public events. At the end of the campaign, Committee members will evaluate all submitted ideas and present their recommendations to the Mesa City Council for possible implementation.
“I look forward to a City of Mesa that attracts new people to visit, new industries to establish bases of operations, and new families to call Mesa their home,” says Patrick Kee. “Imagine Mesa is an important first step in making that happen.”
“Eastmark residents have such great ideas, and this is the perfect opportunity to voice those ideas to City leaders,” says Matthew Law.
