Click this link for a great view of the proposed project area.
This new video that gives a bird's eye view of the proposed complex. The actual field house will not be as sophisticated in style as the architect's rendering here but the dimensions will be roughly the same. This is a project that will create a lasting destination for the City of Mesa, one which will attract regional interest and provide abundant local access. And from an economic standpoint, interest in the project will generate new revenue streams for the City of Mesa in the form of sales and bed taxes.

this sounds like a waste of money, only the rich people could use it
Where exactly will this be located? Renderings of the project give pretty much no details on location and peoples' posts are about youth sports in general, but not much meat on the proposed project.
We have two soccer facilities already in the Red Mountain area: Red Mountain Soccer Complex and Quail Run. Will one of these be expanded to house this? Closed? Replaced?
Just take a look at this Mesa!
A banquet facility that could hold large crowds......I'm thinking my first fundraiser gala?! I know so may people that could benefit from a space like this!
Here’s another exciting look at what’s possible at this Multi-Purpose Sports Complex.......volleyball, anyone!?
Wow, even I hadn’t thought of how awesome this would be as a site for premier wrestling events!
Can you imagine how many companies, schools, and nonprofits can hold functions here! As a founder of a non profit myself this would be huge for Mesa!
I would refer anyone who thinks this is a benefit to the general public to refer to Time magazine's article of Aug. 24. This is what people in this thread are wanting to fund when they say they support kids sports .
‘For better or worse, youth sports is being privatized’
We've gotten even more great ideas related to this one that we've combined them to help them gain even more steam! All of the comments and "Me too" votes have been transferred over from the following ideas:

We want a multi-purpose, multi-field youth and amateur sports complex, both indoor and outdoor space in Mesa.
