Open house to review design elements of Mesa light rail extension
PHOENIX — Station locations, street configuration and other design recommendations for the Central Mesa Light Rail Extension will be shared with the community for their comment at an open house on Saturday, April 24, in downtown Mesa.
The open house is also an opportunity for community members to provide input on the city of Mesa’s Central Main Plan. This plan focuses on ways to create a more sustainable downtown for residents, business and future development. METRO and Mesa staff will be available to address any questions and field comments.
Technical analysis and previous community input has helped to define the light rail extension that will travel on Main Street from the current end-of-line at Sycamore to Mesa Drive. Following this public process, the 3.1-mile extension will enter into engineering; the project is set for completion in 2016.
Meeting date and location:
Saturday, April 24, 2010
9 a.m. – noon
18 W. Main St., Mesa (between de la Cruz Bistro and Milano’s Music)
This open house will be held in conjunction with other downtown Mesa events including the MacDonald Street Farmers’ Market and MACFest.
