The Mesa City Council will be asked on Monday, March 17, to approve the use of eminent domain, if necessary, to acquire land for several "micro parks" in the Fiesta District.

City Engineer Beth Huning, in a report to the council, described the tiny parks as "pedestrian refuge areas" along Southern Avenue between Alma School Road and Longmore.
