A Mesa City Council meeting resembled a rally for the proposed Mesa Plays soccer complex, with several supporters representing youth soccer programs and the city’s tourism industry already focusing on their goal – victory in the Nov. 6 election.

The council formally put Mesa Plays on the ballot, along with other critical questions that must be decided by voters and a promise to have a sweeping impact on the city.

While the $30 million in excise bonds that would pay for Mesa Plays do not need voter approval, an associated 1 percent bed tax increase must be authorized for the financing package to proceed.
