Neighborhood Services

An orientation or “kickoff” meeting for the City of Mesa’s first Building
Strong Neighborhoods Initiative will be held Tuesday, Jan. 16 at Mesa
Junior High School, 828 E. Broadway at 6:30 p.m. 
During the orientation meeting, residents will hear results of a door-to-door survey City staff and volunteers have been conducting since mid-December.  Residents will use the survey results to prioritize issues that
will begin to be addressed by a variety of City services over a four-week 
period.  In addition, Mesa Code Compliance will give a presentation about  
common code violations and procedures to solve the problems. The meeting will also include an open house for citizens to learn more about existing City services and programs.  Representatives from a variety of City of Mesa
departments and divisions will participate. 
“The kickoff meeting will provide residents with an overview of the
program,” Mesa Lead Neighborhood Outreach Coordinator Mike Renshaw
said.  “We also want to offer an open house or expo so that the residents
and businesses have an opportunity to meet City staff and learn more about
the wide variety of services and programs that are available to strengthen
their neighborhood.”
The primary goal of the Building Strong Neighborhoods Initiative is to preserve and strengthen neighborhoods by providing residents and businesses
with education, training and access to existing resources to address
neighborhood issues. The initial project, in Mesa Council District 4, lies
within the neighborhood bound by Broadway, Hobson, Horne, and Marilyn
Avenue.  The goal is to conduct one neighborhood project in each City
Council District during the next 12 months.
For more information, contact Mesa Lead Neighborhood Outreach
Coordinator Mike Renshaw at 480-644-4706.
