This conservation site is dedicated to helping homeowners associations, businesses and multifamily properties reduce water consumption. Generally, the biggest expense of a HOA is water and landscaping. So jump in and get some ideas for saving money and water!
To assist our non-residential customers with saving water, the City of Mesa is offering a Grass-to-Xeriscape rebate, funded through a grant from the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation. When a non-residential customer applies to remove 10,000 square feet or more of established and living grass and plans to replace it with a water-thrifty landscape, the project may qualify to receive a $5,000 rebate from the City of Mesa. Funds are limited and are on a first-come, first-served basis. The requirements of the grant have been updated, see the link for more details. Please contact Becky Zusy at (480) 644-3058 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information and to ensure availability of funds.
