The Gilbert Town Council directed staff at its June 15 meeting to pull together an internal committee to study appropriate uses of the town’s new logo.

The committee will include one or two council members, plus staff representatives, including from public safety and the parks department.

Council members, including Scott September and Mayor Brigette Peterson, said they wanted to get a handle on the rollout of the logo so there would be no surprises of where the logo shows up.

September said he was surprised when he went to the Public Safety Training Facility grand opening in March and there was a 15-foot-high logo on the facility’s exterior.

September proposed removing the logo and allowing the public safety departments to have their own logo on the building or nothing at all, but the proposal was tabled and will become part of the committee’s discussions.


September agreed to be part of the committee.

The discussion on the logo came late in the meeting after council upheld the planning commission’s approval of the site design for SanTan Adventure Park during the public hearing portion of the meeting.

Elsewhere, during the public comment period, several residents voiced opposition to proposed zoning changes for multifamily housing and commercial space in the Morrison Ranch area on the town’s east side.

The meeting was the last of the fiscal year and the last one in the Gilbert Municipal Building I for a year. The building will be undergoing renovations.
