In 2016, Mesquite City Council declared downtown a priority. In turn, the Economic Development Department was charged with engaging the community, and in particular, downtowners, in a plan to get serious about downtown.
At the same time, a new spirit was growing, and people downtown were ready to get to work to generate a lasting way to create a vibrant downtown.
What takes many others decades to get going, Mesquite has accomplished in a remarkable period of time. It was accomplished with the spirit of doing good for all – that a rising downtown lifts the entire community.
