HeatSync Labs (a 501c3 non-profit) has been by far the biggest source of innovation in the entire East Valley.
All the work done at the lab, and its funding has been completely on the backs of its volunteers.
In 2011 Mesa's previous mayor Scott Smith launched a similar initiative to neighborhoodland/ImagineMesa called iMesa. The biggest vote getter by more than double the next suggestion was to support HeatSync Labs. The result of iMesa was a 70 million dollar parks and rec bill sent to the voters which passed. Unfortunately, support for HeatSync Labs didn't make it on to that bill. Let's not allow the City to make the same mistake again.
HeatSync Labs has done so much for downtown Mesa over the last six years, that it is time for the City to contribute something back.
