Gilbert is Welcoming Businesses and Education
As a longtime resident of Gilbert, I am excited to see growth not only in residential real estate, but in the local economy as a whole. This is due in large part to the support of local and state government, encouragement of economic expansion, and growth of the Gilbert community. Gilbert is welcoming business and education in new and innovative ways that make it a great place for singles, couples, and families.
Support of Town of Gilbert and State of Arizona
If you’ve been to a ribbon cutting for a local business recently, you’ve probably met Gilbert Mayor John Lewis or members of the Town Council. They are active in the community at the local and state level, engaging business owners, visiting schools, and getting to know the people of Gilbert. They’ve created a welcoming environment for residents and business owners alike. It’s just a great place to live and do business!

St. Xavier University Gilbert Campus and ASU
There is a deep belief that education is an investment in the future economic prosperity of Arizona. It is the hope that partnerships like St. Xavier University and Arizona State University will continue to foster higher education by Arizona students and welcome out of state students studying STEM majors – science, technology, engineering, and math.

Development of the 202 Corridor
If you’ve driven through Gilbert on the 202 lately, you will see booming businesses and opportunity for additional growth. Rivulon, located at Gilbert Road and the 202, is seen as a premier development consisting of 3 million square feet of Class A office space and 500,000 square feet of hotel, restaurant, and retail space. Such spaces provide a home for businesses, keep commuters local, and encourage tax dollar spending at home in Gilbert.
Developments like Rivulon, the addition of institutes of higher education, and support of the government mean continued economic growth for Gilbert and surrounding areas.
