We've had so many 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:

Lisa:
I want more covered play areas in Mesa.
Our kids need more protection from the heat and sun. In the summer especially. They still want to be outside but cannot because we have no protection from the sun.

Jon David Jeffery:
I want shade covering for popular neighborhood kids playgrounds like alta mesa and falcon field in Mesa

Hannigirl:
I want shade at ALL playgrounds in Mesa.

SHughes:
I want more shade coverings at all the Mesa parks More splash pads and family friendly activities in Mesa.
Mesa is a wonderful city! I want Mesa to be a leader for parks, shade coverings, splash pads and family activities. Right now Queen Creek, Gilbert and Chandler have more to offer. There are new neighborhoods being built in Mesa and I want Mesa to be inviting to families!

Abbie Lewis:
I want more fun splash pads in Mesa.
Mesa is in need of splash pads. Especially in the established areas, not just the outskirts. I would love to see a really great splash area like Thunder Junction Park in St George Utah, and not just a glorified concrete fountain. We would also really benefit from small park splash pads that are designed for the neighborhood, and not as a destination - similar to some of the parks in Tempe.

Lauren DeLaix Cluff:
I want More splash pads! They are perfect for hot weather and little kids in Mesa.
This is not a new idea so I am sure I don't need to describe it. I think that splash pads at the local parks are the perfect thing to entertain families, especially in the heat when the parks are used less.

Cece:
I want a splash pad at Countryside Park in Mesa.

Mesa needs to pay greater attention to its parks where families can gather on weekends. We need to emulate chandler's great park and recreation program and development.

We've combined one more idea related to this thread.
Cory Lieber
I want Mesa to build a stadium for the coyotes! Use the newly renovated Fiesta district in Mesa.
Having a stadium for the AZ Coyotes would generate income for the city. Building it where Fiesta mall currently sits would be an ideal location. It has easy access to and from on the US60 which is easily accessible to all the other freeway systems. There are also a few hotels in the area that could house put of town guests. There are restaurants in the area, some shopping, and buildings that could also be devolped into an entertainment district. Having the coyotes in Mesa would help the state, the Coyotes organization, and most importantly the City on Mesa.

I thought private developers already have plans for the old mall. I believe I read construction begins in January.

I've been saying that that mall should be converted to an indoor amusement park similar to the concept in Minnesota. It would allow for year-round entertainment, would have lots of parking and local restaurants/hotels nearby that would add income to that area, and is very conveniently located by good roads/highways. The airport and even the local Greyhound station are both easily accessible to the location.
It could be a destination location for tourists throughout the year and provide a much needed indoor activity location for the locals here in the summer months.

Thanks for the idea! To help aid the discussion, we wanted to share some information about the City's policies and current services. Whether it is simply more funding for current services or a brand new service, detailed ideas and discussion help our committee and elected officials know what you would like to see in our City. Thanks again for participating!

It's not surprising that there is a feral problem. You find a stray & if you try to turn it in they want to charge you a surrender fee or you call 50 different organizations to take it & they all say that they're full.

I would also like to see the city do something about the people that bring all the cat food and just dump it in alleys and leave a big mess. We have that problem where I work and many times that debris winds up on our property and the cats turn any place they want to into their litter box.

its not fair that I as a Responsible Dog Owner Have paid for Shots and License every year i have had animals. And yet The winter visitors show up along with cats but when they leave the cats seem to be left behind. And then we are expected to deal with this crap. When My dog is outside of their yard they are on Leash. I believe its time that cats have
the same rules. Maybe the cost of Medical attention and license will deter people. if they dont want to to spay an d neuter its gets expensive to have to pay yearly. and if they are outside they must be leashed. and if not there is a ticket coming your way same as a dog running loose.

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.

These were outlawed where I lived in Colorado. It didn't seem to have any impact at the amount of these that were scattered about. Enforcement is the hard part.
