Chandler’s Congress of Neighborhoods


September 1, 2007

Chandler’s next Congress of Neighborhoods brainstorming session is getting a small makeover, including inviting residents to offer their thoughts on the role they’d like to see for a new city department, the Neighborhood Resources Division.

Effective this month, the previous Code Enforcement and Neighborhood Services divisions will join forces to streamline responses to neighborhood concerns.

At the idea session, scheduled Saturday, Oct. 27, residents will learn how the new departmental structure can help improve Chandler neighborhoods, and make suggestions for its effective operation.

The group meets from 7:30 a.m. to noon at the Downtown Community Center, 125 E. Commonwealth Ave.

Also this month, the new Neighborhood Resources Division gets a new director, Judy Register, who held in a similar position in Scottsdale.

Planned revisions for the neighborhood program also call for adding staff to the city’s code enforcement program.

The so-called Congress of Neighborhoods session is a semi-annual event designed to help resudents create their own solutions to neighborhood problems.

The event is free and includes a continental breakfast, but space is limited.  For more information and to RSVP, call the Office of Neighborhood Programs at (480) 782-2218.
