Mesa Downtown Focus
In an effort to carry out Mesa City Council's
Strategic Initiatives, the EconomicDevelopment
Department is coordinating a variety of efforts focused
on revitalizing Downtown Mesa. Efforts range from
engaging stakeholders in a discussion about a vision for
downtown to discussions about integrating Light Rail
transit along Main Street.
Downtown Vision -
Downtown Mesa stakeholders, including the City of Mesa and the Downtown Mesa
Association, working together to set a vision for the future of Downtown.
Downtown Activation - The City of Mesa and the Downtown Mesa Association are
focused on the facilitation, promotion and coordination of special events in the
Redevelopment - The City is committed to promoting
redevelopment and finding flexible solutions to the reuse of older buildings in
the Downtown Area.
Transit-Oriented Design and Form - The City will
incorporate a form-based code in Downtown Mesa and surrounding areas to
encourage Transit Oriented Development (TOD) and urban building forms.
Central Main Plan - This plan addresses land uses adjacent to light rail
stations, planned and future, on Main Street between Sycamore and Gilbert Road.
When completed, the City of Mesa will have a plan and tools to encourage
redevelopment and revitalization that balances existing uses with those
appropriate for areas adjacent to light rail.
Integration - METRO and the City of Mesa seek to integrate
light rail transit in a manner that supports existing businesses and
provides for ample future development and economic opportunities.
