Fiesta District Design Handbook

The City of Mesa retained PMC to prepare a design for the Fiesta District, a major City business center in need of revitalization. This District Design Handbook includes development of a District Brand, Vision, and identified improvements to define a unique sense of place while improving transportation and pedestrian linkages. The City Council approved the Fiesta District Design Handbook January 25, 2009.

Project components include: a Community Outreach Strategy, development of a District Branding Plan, a circulation plan, design concepts, guidelines, and standards for public and private improvements, and an implementation strategy providing financing options, estimated improvement costs with recommended phasing & priorities.
