As a next step in the process, the City will begin drafting a Redevelopment Plan, which will serve as the blueprint for redevelopment activities and opportunities in the area. Property owners within the East Redevelopment Area boundary will receive a letter inviting them to attend any future meetings. The meeting information will also be posted online when available.
The data gathering and parcel study is complete, and it has been determined that the area meets the statutory requirements to be formally declared a Redevelopment Area. The determination of blight was based on the nine blight statutory factors listed in Arizona Statute 36-1471.
The Mesa City Council will discuss adoption of the study findings at the two meetings below. This may result in a City Council vote designating this area as a Redevelopment Area.
The City of Mesa hosted an Open House on June 21, 2017 to share more information about the Redevelopment Area project. Click here to view the Open House Powerpoint.
City representatives will be working in the area, photographing properties and observing general conditions in the area. The City representatives will not be entering onto any private properties, but will make their observations from the sidewalks fronting properties.
Owners of real property within the area of study will be notified of the date and time of the public meeting to discuss the findings. Note: The City of Mesa does NOT record a property’s inclusion in a Redevelopment Area.
