A “refresh” draft document on the code has been released and is available for public review with input being accepted by email at [email protected] through July 28.
The effort on the code is at the direction of town council. It has focused on five areas:
Identifying obsolete regulations and remove redundant text;
Clarifying unclear regulations;
Simplifying the code language and layout;
Supplementing or replacing text with tables/graphics;
Providing links and references to proactively anticipate questions.
Comments will be discussed at the Gilbert Planning Commission’s study session Aug. 4.
After the study session, the code will undergo a series of three hearings: Aug. 18 with the redevelopment commission; Sept. 1 with the planning commission; and Sept. 21 with town council.
