Socc it to me...

So, I guess I'm bragging a bit on this but I'm just so proud of Heath. Most of you know that Heath has been interning at a company called West Mesa Community Development for over a year now. It has been a great experience for him and more than that, it has presented some great opportunities for the future. He has made so many great contacts... like Waveyard, city leaders, development groups, Westcor, etc and now this... Last month, Heath was reading through some articles about the MLS (Major League Soccer) considering a stadium in Arizona. He immediately called the contact on the article and presented West Mesa as an idea for a potential location. This developer hadn't even considered any part of Mesa before this. (Side note: Heath's been working on a land-use plan for the new Fiesta District and this was already in his plan) So, anyways, after a meeting that next day, the MLS guy contacted MCC in talking about a joint agreement for a new renovated stadium....and most likely privately funded. So, to make a long story short, Heath talked to a news reporter last week about the potential project and here's the link for the article. Enjoy! They are now looking at multiple locations in Mesa. But, in lieu of the new Fiesta District design, it could become an urban mix-use development! Wouldn't it be great to have that here and bring some life back to this area!

Yea for Heath! I'm glad you are bragging on him Stacey, he deserves it!

And supercute new header. I love it and think that you have to change it until you figure out that it's exactly what you want...much like changing outfits a million times! I like seeing new blogs...gives me ideas too. So good job!

Heath, I guess this means that you need to start getting tattoos. SO that you can compete with Becks
