Design Review

The Bridges at Gilbert community design guidelines (PDF) are unique to our community. The guidelines allow for creativity and diversity while maintaining a balance with the natural desert landscape. The guidelines provide an overall framework for harmonious design and criteria for size, style, materials, and color.
 
Most visible changes to your home require advance approval by the Design Review Committee. Visible is defined as "seen from the street, neighboring property or through an open view fence." The Design Review Committee uses our approved, published Design Guidelines to make sure changes are compliant. 
 
The process is easy, and our community manager is happy to assist you with making sure your application is complete. 
 
Submittal Process
The completed ARC Request Form (PDF), along with all required attachments should be submitted to the community manager in one package. All submittals must include a current, color photo of the area to be renovated and any additional applicable information (i.e. sketch, photograph, sales brochure).
 
All work must be completed within 90 days of approval unless an extension is requested in writing and approved by the Design Review Committee.
 
If your project requires the Town of Gilbert or Maricopa County permits/approvals, they must be obtained before you start the project.
