Town[edit]

Gilbert the largest town in the US? Is this semantics or vandalism? Brian Rock 02:33, 27 Jun 2004 (UTC)

Semantics; largest area incorporated as a town, as opposed to a city. Brad Jones 03:52, 14 Jun 2005 (UTC)
Well, isn't it more complicated than that? Look at, e.g. Town of Hempstead, New York; North Hempstead, New York. Obviously, New York towns are not municipalities, but are more like sub-counties. But the issue seems awkward, doesn't it? john k 03:49, 20 March 2006 (UTC)
Hempstead is not a separately incorporated area listed in the census listing. Given the subject, I would consider the census listing definitive, but I will readily admit to personal bias. -- Kazrak 00:32, 22 March 2006 (UTC)

Bot report : Found duplicate references ![edit]

In the last revision I edited, I found duplicate named references, i.e. references sharing the same name, but not having the same content. Please check them, as I am not able to fix them automatically :)

Notable natives and residents[edit]

this section needs some serious cleanup; either valid citations need to be forthcoming that demonstrate that these indiciduals are from or reside in Gilbert, or they need to be removed. -- 208.81.184.4 (talk) 00:36, 15 December 2010 (UTC)

Structure[edit]

Hi. I'm going through all the US Cities (as per List of United States cities by population) in an effort to provide some uniformity in structure. Anyone have an issue with me restructuring this article as per Wikipedia:WikiProject Cities/US Guideline. I won't be changing any content, merely the order. Occasionally, I will also move a picture just to clean up spacing issues. I've already gone through the top 20 or so on the above list, if you'd like to see how they turned out. Thoughts?

Higley Traditional Academy in historic buildings[edit]

Higley Traditional Academy was founded in 1909. Why isn't in historic buildings. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Mike Weber02 (talkcontribs) 00:42, 5 May 2016 (UTC)

Notable people[edit]

This section has been tagged for lack or citations since 2010, with many of the tags on individual entries since the same time. I found a source for one of them, but I don't anything about Gilbert, save for the fact that it's in Arizona. Each entry needs an inline citation which establishes both notability and a significant tenure of residency. Please see WP:RELIABLE and WP:WikiProject Cities/US Guideline#Notable people.
