The town of Gilbert is seeking residents’ input on the town’s tourism efforts to help guide the planning process and future decisions.

In that effort, which Gilbert officials said they hope will ensure a healthy visitor economy into the future, a town consultant is using a short online survey.

The Coraggio Group said the survey takes 10 minutes to complete, but it must be done in one session. Exiting the survey or leaving the browser window open for an extended period will result in a partial survey being submitted without an opportunity to retake it.

Survey takers’ answers will be confidential and submitted directly to the Coraggio Group, which is compiling a report for the town’s Discover Gilbert team.

The survey is at https://www.research.net/r/Gilbert-Tourism-Survey and will be open through Jan. 19.
