The City of Mesa is in the process of creating a Housing Master Plan, to address current and future needs of housing of all kinds, to best meet the needs of a growing Mesa and its citizens.
What is a Housing Master Plan?
The Housing Master Plan is a section of the City's General Plan. It is a report of collected data and analysis on the housing market, both rental and homeownership, and demographics of Mesa residents, provided by a consultant. In addition, the Housing Master Plan will include policy and strategies to serve as a roadmap for future development.
Why is it important?
Once complete, the Housing Master Plan will help Mesa City Council make important decisions for our community, for the next 10 years. It will guide City Council on planning decisions, prioritizing and balancing all levels of housing demand, identifying the needs of low- and moderate-income households, and providing a framework for evaluating future projects.
How are Mesa residents involved?
The City of Mesa Housing and Community Development division is in the process of updating the Housing Master Plan, and is in Phase II of the process:
- Phase I: Data gathering to provide framework for Phase II
Phase II: Public input
Housing and Community Development hosted two Community Conversations and discussed with the public some of the work that's being done, answered questions, and gathered public input and thoughts on housing needs in Mesa.
Once the data and input from both Phases are put together, Housing and Community Development will present the outcomes and make recommendations to City Council, for their input.
