The Town's Office of Intergovernmental Relations actively reviews, researches, and tracks all state legislation potentially impacting the Town. Below you will find information and the status of these bills. This information will be updated on a weekly basis when the Legislature is in session. Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact staff.
A number of bills introduced in the Legislature this session seek to restrict how cities and towns in Arizona can regulate home-based businesses. In Gilbert, this could have an impact on parking/traffic issues as well as the use of commercial signs in a residential area. Keep in mind that this would not impact HOA’s, so if your neighborhood has an HOA that has adopted restrictions on home-based businesses, those would remain intact.
We want your feedback on Gilbert’s current home-based businesses regulations. Please fill out this short 2-minute survey by Monday, February 12 to share your opinion.
