PHOENIX — Gilbert plans to make infrastructure and design improvements to its Heritage District, including updates for Water Tower Plaza.

The city announced that maintenance is required on the plaza, which was built in 2007, opened in 2008 and needs “significant upgrades” to the underground infrastructure, according to a Gilbert Town Council press release.

Many replacement parts are no longer available due to being outdated.

Amenities above ground in the park will be removed during construction, which is set to begin in the summer of 2023, according to the release.

Gilbert is asking for public feedback on the redesign of the plaza via an online survey.

The survey asks about favorite amenities, tree alignment, murals, shade and the pavilion layout.

The city is looking to complete the project by the summer on 2024, and a budget has yet to be assigned due to the early stages of its planning.

Residents can take the survey by Aug. 21 to submit their input.
