DMB/Gaylord Megaresort Vote Today

While tomorrow is about the Bond Election and the Presidential Race, today is about the megaresort plans that are going before the Mesa City Council. Here is the Republic's coverage of the "historic" project. Here is the Tribune's coverage of the "watershed" event.

All hyperbole aside, this is a very big deal for Mesa and its future. The Mesa City Council is voting on several important pieces regarding the future of the GM proving grounds including annexing it into Mesa, rezoning the property, reviewing the agreements, and potentially placing the project on the March ballot.

I have said it before and I will say it again. I wish we could get through a project in Mesa without going to another election. However, on the plus side, we can always say that the public has had a thorough debate about each of their larger projects and come to some sort of decision. This definitely gives the naysayers a lot less ground to work with.
