Heatsync is amazing and without question has made Mesa a better place. I am all for city support, but it's not obvious to me what specific things the City should do. This idea becomes more likely to get picked if we can come up with specific asks. What do you think? Incentives to help find a bigger building? Contacts/connections for outreach? Direct funding? Help finding corporate sponsors?

Good question. I wonder if the city could provide an unused city facility for a low/free rent.

By way of example, the recently closed fire station near Alma School and University when company 203 relocated to a new station. Not necessarily advocating this particular location, but I wonder if there are other things like that available?

I just read about this last week at the Main Library! But we need it in Southeast Mesa too! www.eastvalleytribune.com/loca...

I'd settled for better selection of audiobooks at Phoenix Greater Digital Library.

Thanks for the idea! There has been a recent US Supreme Court decision (Reed Vs. Town of Gilbert) that significantly limits sign enforcement by local governments. As a result, the City is updating our Sign Code. For more information, the link below will take you to the City's website for the Sign Code update.

Your support for this idea is still important for those instances when the law allows for local control--so keep it up, and share this idea with your friends and neighbors!

Will do, City of Mesa, AZ! :D

Reed v Gilbert changed what messages are allowed to be displayed on a sign. Our new signage ordinance just needs to make it fair. So we can significantly limit the size and amount of signage allowed if we as a city choose to be forward thinking about it. We do not need to be overrun by cheap, ugly, and tacky signs. The nicest neighborhoods in the Valley aren't cluttered with ugly signs, why are we?

Mesa can still eliminate bandit signs, like the one in the photo. Reed v Gilbert didn't say anything about those. We just need to make it a priority.

You have been updating the sign code for over 2 years now. Even the Supreme Court will allow you to take down signs that are posted on street signs and traffic control devices. This goes back to code enforcement, of which there appears to be much too little.
