An east Mesa city councilman last week criticized a consultant’s report on the future of Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport, arguing it “would be a recipe for disaster’’ to allow housing in the flight path along Elliot Road.
Councilman Kevin Thompson’s comments came after a consultant outlined the city’s Inner Loop Master Plan, which covers the 3,100 acres closest to the airport.
Overall, the Inner Loop District Study divides sprawling southeast Mesa into four districts: airport/campus, Inner Loop District to the northwest, mixed-use to the northeast and logistics/commerce to the southeast.
