The task force is an advisory body for transportation projects and issues, including on arterial streets, intersections, bicyclists, pedestrians, trail crossings and traffic management systems.
Members review and provide input on Gilbert’s overall transportation system to address needs in the areas of safety, traffic congestion mitigation, economic development and investment, and advanced traffic management systems.
Most upcoming tasks will be in preparation for a potential November 2021 transportation and infrastructure bond election.
Participation may range from monthly to weekly meetings. Members of the task force will likely serve through the end of 2021 or until advising is completed on the assigned transportation projects and issues if town council assigns no other tasks.
Members must reside within the town limits. Each member represents a specific area of Gilbert. The areas that have need include:
- Northwest Gilbert Area between Arizona Avenue and Gilbert Road, Warner to Baseline
- San Tan Village Area between Greenfield and Power Roads, Pecos to Loop 202-SanTan Freeway
- South Gilbert Area: Val Vista Drive to Queen Creek boundary, Hunt Highway to Chandler Heights
