MESA, Ariz. (AP) - Arizona State University is planning to open a satellite campus in downtown Mesa, a suburb of Phoenix.

Mesa Mayor John Giles on Thursday formally announced the plans during his State of the City address.

ASU already has a Polytechnic campus in east Mesa, but University President Michael Crow said in a prerecorded video that the school plans to grow its presence in the city.

The Mesa City Council is expected to vote on a memorandum of understanding in late February, which would set a deadline for the next phase of talks about the expansions specific site, academic offerings and financing.
