With the City of Mesa, AZ, Matrix led the project design team on the creation of two separate Redevelopment Areas (RDAs) on either side of the existing Mesa Town Center Redevelopment Area and the Central Business District. The new Redevelopment Area designations and Redevelopment Plans will set the direction for transforming the targeted areas into strong, vibrant, and economically sustainable destination retail and employment centers.

For the first phase of the project, Matrix conducted a thorough field survey and analysis of each parcel within the proposed RDAs in order to demonstrate the need for revitalizing the blighted areas.  The resulting Findings of Necessity report was approved unanimously by the City Council.  During this phase, Matrix engaged the public and educated the community through public workshops, stakeholder interviews, factsheets, web articles and mail notices.
