Does this reporter rappel from a hoving helicopter into work every day or what. The only part of Mesa that is experiencing any retail activity is east of Recker and south of the 60. All you have to do is drive along any of the major East-West roads to see how devastated Mesa is to the West of Recker Road. Empty mini-malls dot the landscape like suguaros. The Goodwill Store that moved into the old Fry's on University and Greenfield filled a 8yr old empty space. Going down to Main and Greenfield there are two mini-mini-malls that have 9 empty small store fronts, almost all empty for the past 4 years. If you go further West on Southern, Broadway, Main St., University, Brown and McKellips...the worse it gets. The area just across the street from the MCC and the Fiesta Mall, northward is a disaster area of boarded up and cyclone-fenced empty businesses. Business and commerce follows the money and the only "Money" in Mesa is in East, not the Central or Western part. Don't belive me....then you should walk around the 'Checkerboard" of open vs closed storefronts in Downtown Mesa and all the empty car and RV dealerships.
You are absolutely correct Leon. Anyone with a stitch of common sense can see the results of "stimulus spending" and its' results.
