**MEET at 3pm at 29 W Main Street, before embarking on a guided bus tour of Mesa's development along the light rail corridor.

Following the success of our Camelback Light Rail Corridor bus tour, For(u)m shifts its attention eastward. Complementing Local First's work in small-business technical assistance for those affected by the Mesa light rail extension, this bus tour focuses on the current and prospective developments taking place as the light rail runs through downtown Mesa.

Along and around Main Street, after decades of mostly-dormancy, Mesa has begun to be awakened. Starting with the singular multicultural experience of Mekong Plaza and the new market-rate townhome development of Main Street Station, the light rail line has welcomed and enhanced affordable housing and mixed-use projects, dynamic new retail, restaurants, and breweries, and unique pop-up and adaptive reuse projects.

In partnership with the City of Mesa, Arizona Government and RAILmesa: Retail, Arts, Innovation & Livability, this tour shines a light on the temporary use, new retail and restaurants, affordable housing, creative space, and mixed-use developments that will shape the next wave of investment for this vital, historic corridor.

Tour stops and speakers include El Rancho, Mesa Artspace Lofts, Cider Corps, Mekong Plaza, and more to be confirmed.

Admission is $10 in advance. For(u)m members receive discounted admission; E-mail [email protected] for details and to reserve your space. Click here to RSVP:
