The Bridges at Gilbert community design guidelines 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. Our Community Manager, or Administrative Assistant are happy to assist you with making sure your application is complete.


The first step of the design review process is submitting an ARC Request Form.
The ARC Request Form must include a Plot Plan indicating the location of the requested improvement, a current, color photo of the area to be renovated, all applicable measurements, specific dimensions, and any descriptions or sketches.
Incomplete applications could result in further review and possibly delayed approval. Select the link below to start the application process.
