Gilbert mayor answers anonymous text campaign against commuter rail

By Tom Blodgett | YourValley

An anonymous campaign text message blast sent July 14 condemning construction of a commuter rail line in Gilbert drew a response from Gilbert Mayor Brigette Peterson, laying out what the town’s intentions are.

The Gilbert Town Council plans to study on Aug. 23 a capital improvement project that includes a feasibility study for two stations in town, one at Cooley Station and the other in the Heritage District. The stations—which also would accommodate other modes of transit, including bus, bicycle, micromobility and ridesharing—would be along previously constructed rail line in case regional authorities launch such intercity passenger rail.

Study sessions do not have votes.

“Any claims regarding a newfound push by any members of this council for commuter rail or approval of construction is simply false, with the public Town Council meetings reflecting this,” Peterson said in a statement released in the evening of July 14.
