More indoor play areas like at Fiesta Mall...I know they are planning on retrofitting Fiesta Mall with offices, etc. but please leave the kids area and it would be great to expand it to a larger space.

Great idea! There is not much in that area for families and kids!

Agreed. There is lots of room at Fiesta Mall and it would be great if some of that space were used for families and kids to have a safe and indoor space to go, especially during the Summer.

The idea of using indoor mall space or other space that had been left "abandoned" by corporations is a great idea. Sports facilities could delete developed for indoor sports courts. This would definitely have to accommodate Pickleball courts for practice and possibly league play!!!

The AZ Sustainability Alliance can help the City of Mesa achieve this goal.

I think free bulk pick up days would be wonderful.

Agreed. I'd be willing to pay a small monthly fee to see fewer couches & matresses rotting on our sidewalks in our City! Bulk pick up (and code violations for not putting out on pickup days) would make our community look better overall!

I'd be happy with once a year bulk pickup like other cities I've lived in.

Or how about a place besides the nasty dump to put bulk items like they have for cardboard.

Thanks for the idea! To help aid the discussion, we wanted to share some information about the City's policies and current services. Whether it is simply more funding for current services or a brand new service, detailed ideas and discussion help our committee and elected officials know what you would like to see in our City. Thanks again for participating!

Here's a suggestion: Eliminate Mesa Animal Control. We are one of the only cities in Maricopa Co that still has an AC office. Use the money elsewhere, including for a Historic Preservation officer based in the Neighborhood Outreach department. (Having a HPO would help Mesa with revamping some of its older neighborhoods, including assisting property owners in bettering their houses, seeking historic designation, and getting the tax break that comes with a historic designation.) The Mesa AC is not competent to correctly and forensically investigate animal cruelty (one of the tasks assigned to them), resulting in several complaints against the office in the last several years. The Mesa PD should be investigating those crimes, especially considering the fact that animal cruelty is often associated with other crimes and social issues. Other Valley cities contract out their former AC jobs to the AZ Humane Society. Mesa should do so as well. The Humane Soc. works with police agencies to correctly perform cruelty investigations. Mesa AC does not do proper/competent investigations of cruelty against feral cats and appears to be still operating under the old model of feral cats as vermin. This attitude presents a barrier to those trying to perform TNR. Mesa should partner with the Animal Defense League of AZ to put money into a type of escrow account so that Mesa residents that can't afford it can get feral cats in their neighborhoods fixed. This was done recently in Tempe.

I agree, Annalisa! The City of Tempe is actually doing something about the problem. The City of Mesa does nothing!

It's not surprising that there is a feral problem. You find a stray & if you try to turn it in they want to charge you a surrender fee or you call 50 different organizations to take it & they all say that they're full.
