The next Building Strong Neighborhoods Initiative in the City of Mesa will be held in Council District 2. The Fuller Ranch neighborhood will be the focus of the initiative. This neighborhood is located at Broadway Road and 24th Street. The program will kick off with an orientation meeting on Tuesday, September 17 at 6:30 p.m. at Robson Elementary School, located at 2122 E. Pueblo Ave. Vice Mayor Alex Finter, who represents District 2, is scheduled to speak to neighbors at the meeting.
“This is a great opportunity for Mesa residents to get together with representatives from the city and share information with one another,” Vice Mayor Finter said. “Anytime we can have neighbors come together to communicate with each other and exchange ideas, I think it is a very good thing for our city.”
At the meeting residents will hear about upcoming planned projects as well as Clean Sweep dumpster locations and dates. Action teams will be formed so that residents may work together to address concerns they may have and plan community activities. Residents attending the orientation meeting will have the opportunity to meet staff from various City departments such as Code Compliance, Police, Transportation and Animal Control. There will also be representatives from various non-profit agencies and education venues for residents to visit in an expo type setting before and after the meeting.
“We encourage all Fuller Ranch residents to participate in the program. Neighbors will have an opportunity to work hand in hand with city staff from Mesa Police Crime Prevention, Traffic Studies, and Neighborhood Outreach to create positive change in their neighborhood,” Susan Frabotta said.
The City of Mesa Building Strong Neighborhoods Initiative was introduced in the fall of 2006 to provide education and resources to one selected neighborhood in each Council district once per year. For more information, contact District 2 Neighborhood Outreach Coordinator Susan Frabotta at (480) 644-5432 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
