The Mesa City Council at a Thursday, March 17, morning study session voted to approve a memorandum of understanding with the Arizona Board of Regents on behalf of Arizona State University for the purpose of creating a university presence in downtown Mesa.

“This is not unusual. We typically do the MOUs as we begin discussions for these large projects. We’ve done this for other projects, when we built up the Cubs (stadium), other developments like that,” Mesa City Manager Chris Brady said to the council, according to live coverage on Cox Channel 11. “This is intended only to be an opportunity for discussion. The MOU makes it very clear that there’s no obligations to either party in these discussions, that each party is responsible for any expenses or time that it spends on the project,” he said.

Rich Stanley, of ASU, told the council that a building or campus of 200,000 square feet would be ideal in downtown Mesa.
