The town of Gilbert is holding a final public comment period for its updated transportation master plan before the draft is presented to Gilbert Town Council.

The chance to learn more and provide input on transportation needs, concerns and ideas will be conducted through a Virtual Open House No. 2 online.


The transportation master plan will develop a 20-year vision for Gilbert's multimodal transportation network and impact future funding decisions. The plan will consider the needs of people who drive, walk, bike, use a mobility device, use public transportation, and deliver goods and services throughout Gilbert.

Following this final round of public feedback, Gilbert staff will make additional revisions and updates to the plan before presenting a draft to council for approval and adoption.
