It's hard to find the new digs tucked away on the second floor of the sprawling MCC DTMesa campus that occupies 145-165 N Centennial Way directly across from the low-rise Phoenix Mesa Marriott Hotel adjacent to the Mesa Convention - it's center left in the in the peaked section with a palm tree where there appear quite a few 'under-utilized' spaces that could definitely use some 're-proposing' in one way or another maybe with a cross-town shuffle of the Chamber of Commerce into real estate leased to higher education institution MCC?
There seems to have been not much time to plan in-advance for the move.
So far no signage of any kind on the new chamber even though the email stated
We will be open Monday, July 3rd, at the new location . . "
