The town of Gilbert is seeking applicants to fill terms on two boards, the redevelopment commission and the veterans advisory board.

Those interested in filling the volunteer roles can apply online by 5 p.m. May 27.

The opening on the redevelopment commission would fill the final 16 months of a four-year term that ends Oct. 31, 2022.

The commission advises Town Council on matters related to the redevelopment area in downtown Gilbert. Members consider new proposals for development, monitor current projects and implement the redevelopment plan.

Professionals in architectural and landscape design, planning, finance and related fields are sought to serve on the commission, which usually meets once a month. Commissioners must reside with town limits and be qualified electors.


The opening on the veterans advisory board would fill the final two years of a three-year term that ends June 15, 2023.

Veterans advisory board members advise council on veterans’ issues and make recommendations on matters relating to military veterans as council may direct.

They also engage in supporting caregivers, military protocol, honoring service members, Department of Defense contractors and any other initiative as it relates to members of the military and their families of all military service.

As with the redevelopment commission, the board typically meets once a month, and members must reside within town limits and be qualified electors.


In addition to online, applications are also available on the first floor of Municipal Center I, 50 E. Civic Center Drive, between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Thursday.
