I like the idea only if it's free for public use! but yeah lets do it!
Build a carillon tower in the midst of the amazing Site 17!
Fountain Hills considers a crystal lagoon. www.fh.az.gov/634/Crystal-Lagoon
Site 17 is a better spot. Make Site 17 AMAZING!
No way. Not on this corner. I've lived next to that blight wasteland for over 20 years and my family and I even watched when the city was actually buying up all the properties and demolishing them back in the day (talk about a sad thing to watch). It was a very sad affair. I live on Pasadena between 1st and 2nd streets and all I can say is that having a "Disneyland"-like attraction just up the street would simply be a nightmare for those of us, and there are many, who live in the area. A theme park type attraction would be great in Mesa, but it does not belong on Site 17. However, I would like to add that if the city were to decide to put something like that there, it would help our neighborhood greatly if they'd cap the end of Pasadena at 2nd street to cut off traffic to-from that area.
Study: Nearby parks linked to reduced asthma symptoms in kids. Make Site 17 AMAZING!
I think it would be so great to make it a theme and set up kinda like chandler fashion center
It would be amazing to have a stage similar to Tempe Market Place, where local artists (music live bands, magicians, djs, or dancers, or any other type of entertainment) can volunteer to perform (free of charge) and this will bring more traffic even from other cities near, at the same time those performers will get self promotion and support by the audience (our community) can you imagine families would be entertained and would have things to do at this place.
Would this be open to the the public or free? Or at least affordable to all Mesa's residents? I would love to support something this grand, as long as it is accessible to ALL of our community members.
As of right now. I can continue to be a supporter of my beloved downtown. And pay my fair share. This would be but blocks from my home. I always knew Mesa would step it up. But man oh man I had no idea.
Community with giant lagoon under construction in Florida. Our opportunity to learn from them. Mesa is bigger than Miami, and should be AMAZING!
The Mesa Lagoon should be public, like the beach or the lake.
"With an average depth of eight feet and a width of 2000 feet, the lagoon will take a couple months to fill using water bought from the county. However, despite its mammoth size, the pool uses environmentally sustainable technology. In fact, it will use 30 times less water than an 18-hole golf course, and less than 50% of the water used in a park of the same size.
"In addition, while conventional swimming pools use a lot of chemicals and chlorine, the crystal lagoon uses less than one percent of the chemicals and less than two percent of the energy required for those pools.
The lagoon can be used for a number of things, from traditional swimming and snorkeling, to sailing and kayaking. Developers even see the potential to host triathlons, weddings, and more once completed."
