We’re on a Mission
We’re on a mission to be the City of the Future! We choose to:
Anticipate. Create. Help people.
As Gilbert approaches its 100th birthday in 2020, this new mission statement is focused on keeping the thriving community that Gilbert is today well into the future.
“The people are here, the businesses are coming, we are going to be just fine tomorrow,” said Gilbert Mayor Jenn Daniels. “It’s the 5-year and the 10-year and the 20-year marks that I want to make sure this community is prepared for. And we can’t do this alone. It’s going to take all of our staff, residents, businesses, schools, and all of our partners to ensure that Gilbert continues to prosper.”
With this new mission, Mayor Jenn Daniels challenges the community to anticipate change, create solutions, and help people and our businesses.
While the community reflects back on the last 100 years, there is still more work to be done to prepare Gilbert for the future. To that end, we’ve identified three new focus areas to prepare us to become the “City of the Future.”
