Mesa Arizona City Buildings

Mesa Arizona City Buildings

Rome wasn’t built in a day, and neither will all the upgrades and new construction that Mesa voters approved when they passed the $196-million city bond issue. In fact, all the projects won’t be completed until mid-2024. Here is the schedule laid out by Mesa for implementing the projects under the bond issue approved by voters in November. 

The city’s list goes by fiscal years, which begin July 1 and end the following June 30. In addition to these projects, the city Fire and Medical Department will be spending $24.7 million over the next five years to buy new equipment, mainly pumpers and ladder trucks.
