As a next step in the process, the City will begin drafting a Redevelopment Plan, which will serve as the blueprint for redevelopment activities and opportunities in the area.  Property owners within the West Redevelopment Area boundary will receive a letter inviting them to attend any future meetings. The meeting information will also be posted online when available.

July 2017

The data gathering and parcel study is complete, and it has been determined that the area meets the statutory requirements to be formally declared a Redevelopment Area.  The determination of blight was based on the nine blight statutory factors listed in Arizona Statute 36-1471. 

The Mesa City Council will discuss adoption of the study findings at the two meetings below.  This may result in a City Council vote designating this area as a Redevelopment Area.
