(City of Mesa)
By Scott Shumaker | The Mesa Tribune
City officials are embarking on a “generational opportunity” to “reimagine and reinvent City Hall” with a new building and site for the city council chambers.
The chambers serve as the heart of Mesa’s democracy, where the public interfaces with elected officials and actions.
Staff unveiled plans to Mesa’s Design Review Board on Aug. 9, giving Mesa’s review boards their first opportunity to weigh in on the look and design of the new building.
Board members generally liked what they saw, offering just a few minor suggestions to city staff.
Mesa’s new chambers won’t be massive, but their symbolism is huge for a city whose leaders want to project the sense to residents and visitors that Mesa is a vital, modern city on the make.
