The town of Gilbert is asking its residents to participate in the biennial National Community Survey.

The feedback provides the town with insight on how it is serving residents and helps drive decision-making in the community, according to Gilbert officials.


Responses are confidential. No identifying information will be shared, but it is used to see which respondents live inside the town boundaries and ensures respondents answer only once.

The town also may use the information to periodically ask community members about topics and initiatives.

The survey, which can be found here, takes about 18 minutes to complete. The deadline to respond is May 14.
