I would love to see the bike path near Riverview continue all the way out to Red Mountain or at least the bike park on Recker. A lot of cyclists ride on McDowell out to Las Sendas and a dedicated bike path like that would be much safer.

And designated runner / pedestrian paths!

That is a great idea! - There are so many cyclists on McDowell. Too many bike accidents have happened. This would be much safer.

The homeless in Mesa are kicked out of shelters during the day and often end up in the library. How about "Mesa Works," a building between the library and facilities department near University and Center. It could be open during the hours the shelters are closed and homeless people could go there during the day to work cleaning city vehicles, trash cans, etc. for an hourly wage paid in cash. If they work for a minimum number of hours they can use the internet facilities, shower and get other services. No questions asked, just work for a couple bucks and get off the street during the day. The facility wouldn't have to feed or house anyone, just give them a reason to leave the library and parks and while providing a small income rather than just a hand out. Albuquerque has a similar program and Tempe is starting one soon too that will also include housing but Mesa has shelters for housing. The struggle is helping those who don't have jobs during the day but want to stay off the streets.
