Economic Development

Network Gilberts was developed to act as a facilitator to work with the private sector and streamline the task of development as much as possible.


The purpose of Network Gilberts is to encourage the expansion of existing businesses while developing opportunities for commercial, office research, and light industrial development in the Village.


The goal of Network Gilberts is to promote economic development that will maintain and enhance the quality of life in Gilberts and to create a solid and diversified tax base to ensure the fiscal viability of the community. To attain this goal, Network Gilberts seeks to:

  • Become a central point of Gilberts information

  • Facilitate development ideas and opportunities

  • Link resources together

  • Creating a positive business community environment

  • Work with the business community to problem solve

Network Gilberts has created an initiative that brings gigabit broadband to the Gilberts industrial & commercial areas. Broadband with speeds up to 10gb are available to the area now.
