Despite protests by Riverview neighbors, including one who gave a Powerpoint presentation, Mesa City Council appeared poised to approve a developer’s request to expand the Waypoint office development.

But, just as Council was poised to vote on the request, Councilman Mark Freeman suggested delaying the vote until April 5, “to hash this out and provide more mediation and dialogue” between the developer and neighbors who live near the 30-acre office park at Alma School Road and Bass Pro Drive.

The majority agreed with Freeman’s idea.

“I support the continuation,” Mayor John Giles said. “I think the more dialogue the better.”

Councilman Kevin Thompson begged to differ.
