Gilbert has begun the process of updating its General Plan ahead of the 2020 election, when it will be put before voters.

The town will seek input from residents Wednesday at a open house on the plan. The meeting is scheduled for 6 p.m. at McQueen Park Activity Center, 510 N. Horne St. in Gilbert.

State law requires towns and cities to update their general plans every 10 years. Voters must approve the plan, which covers areas like housing, economic development, transportation, parks and open space, design and conservation.

The outreach to residents is considered phase two of the four-phase process of preparing the plan to go before voters.
