Neighborhood Awareness Seminar in Mesa

A good neighbor is one of the most effective crime prevention tools ever invented. That is the purpose for the City of Mesa hosting a Neighborhood Awareness Seminar Saturday, Oct. 10 from 8 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. at the City of Mesa Utility Building, 640 N. Mesa Drive.

The seminar will include such topics as identifying gangs and graffiti, understanding the 911 system and how to be a good neighbor and a good witness. Mesa Police Commander Steve Stahl will update residents on crime prevention techniques and host a question and answer session. District 2 Councilmember Alex Finter will welcome residents to the seminar. Breakfast snacks have been donated by Fry’s Food Stores.

The primary focus of the seminar is on the current Building Strong Neighborhoods Initiative and surrounding neighborhoods. The current initiative lies within the boundaries of Gilbert Road to Harris Drive, Main Street to University Drive. However, the program is open to all Mesa residents.

For more information, contact Mesa Neighborhood Outreach Coordinator Susan Frabotta at (480) 644-5432 or susan.frabotta@mesaaz.gov.
