A peer city study comparing Gilbert to other, similar jurisdictions was used to inform the development of recreation Levels of Service. The adopted plan provides recommendations for new parks, trails, recreation facilities and programs, as well as options for funding the development of recreation facilities in light of new Arizona laws that affect how community facilities are funded. A program classification system, funding philosophy and updates to the town Trail Design Guidelines are also part of the plan recommendations.
