 WHAT'S HAPPENING:

As the historic, symbolic center of the community, we are all very excited about the revitalization that is shaping the Heritage District. The vibrancy of the area can be seen by residents and visitors alike who frequent the Heritage District and enjoy the entrepreneurial restaurants, retail and arts and culture developments.

As an area of focus within the community, there has always been a long term concerted effort in place to ensure the successful redevelopment of the Heritage District. With continued development, Gilbert remains focused on the areas of real estate, traffic and circulation. Through the public procurement process, Gilbert hired two external consultant to complete studies in these areas.

To give you an idea of what step the process is currently in, below is the timeline to date:

  • August 2014 – During the council retreat, Council authorized staff to proceed with a Heritage District Study
