The idea of bringing municipal government to the mall may sound dull, but Mesa is planning a lively introduction to the city with a free concert, fire trucks, the police helicopter, raffles and more.
It’s all part of Mesa’s fifth annual City Hall at the Mall from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Oct. 29 at Superstition Springs Center. The event includes live music by Mesa resident and recording artist Michelle Moyer at Center Court. Representatives from various city departments will explain services and programs while conducting raffle drawings. Residents can see displays and get information about libraries, parks and recreation, transportation, water and energy, Falcon Field and animal control.
In the parking lot near the Cheesecake Factory, residents can see police and fire vehicles, the SWAT armored truck, DUI van, garbage/recycling truck and Southwest Ambulance vehicle. Also, residents can drop off unwanted prescription medication.
And the city is inviting residents to share and vote on ideas for iMesa, an initiative to develop transformational community projects across the community.
Superstition Springs representatives will also share information about the mall.
