Vicklin- did you see the article on the "Entertainment District" zoning overlay they are considering for Downtown? Show up to the City Council meeting and support it. Although Downtown is not void of places that will serve you a beer and burger (Grill on Main) I hope the overlay will help negate the perception of Downtown being a Drytown.7 months ago
Come on Somers, let's own this one for a change. Mesa is worthy of being touted in a name. Maybe even an acronym that spells out M.E.S.A. (aerospace for the A). Our City is finally breaking out of it's shell and is no longer the ugly step child of Phoenix. We should have the self respect to be proud of our name and the change we are experiencing. Maybe then when people across the country hear our Mayor's comments they will realize that we have value and something to offer other then cheap housing and the result of the sprawl of Phoenix.

Sends a message that education is not very important.

"promises of new tenants, several restaurants, marketing, a grand opening and more were pushed back, scaled down or never materialized." sounds like the displaced merchant could fall into the same trap with the Downtown Mesa Association. Jan 29, 2011
Ok genius freethinker, if you can log in and comment on this article you obviously got past the stolen laptop and can participate. Civil dialog may be beyond your capacity but think about it.Jan 27, 2011
