Representatives from the Town of Gilbert will host a second open house on April 8, from 6pm-8pm, at the Council Chambers at Town Hall, to discuss the potential partnership with USA BMX to develop a new facility in Gilbert. This open house will address the details of a potential agreement to go before Council for approval at a later date.
Gilbert has been selected by USA BMX as the preferred location for their new facility. The facility will include a covered BMX arena, training facilities, BMX Hall of Fame and Museum, Bike Park and the USA BMX Headquarters.
Officials from the Town of Gilbert will provide detailed presentations to address questions regarding cost, funding, traffic, location, economic impact, and other matters, followed by a question and answer session and table discussions.
“This partnership will enhance Gilbert’s tourism and economic development efforts,” says Economic Development Director Dan Henderson. “The project’s potential location will provide greater opportunities for visitors to spend their dollars here in Gilbert.”
“This project is consistent with the Parks Master Plan which clearly outlines regional partnerships and park amenities that attract other amenities,” says Parks and Recreation Director Rod Buchanan.
