Community City seeking business leads from public


Chandler’s downtown redevelopment manager is soliciting the public’s help in fi nding new businesses to fi ll in empty spots in the City’s central core. Teri Killgore has established an email account where people can submit the names or contact information of retailers, restaurants and independent employers they’d like to see downtown.


“If you know of a business that would complement our existing mix, please send an email to downtown@chandleraz.gov and let us know about it,” Killgore says. “We’re always looking to add to the family.”


Killgore said the City’s Downtown Redevelopment Team will reach out to the businesses people suggest “and let them know about all the great reasons to locate in downtown Chandler.”


She lists as selling points the area’s unique architecture and Historic Commercial District dating back to 1912; the loyal customer base and retail strength of existing businesses; the strong demographics surrounding downtown including average median incomes of $66,000; the availability of facade renovation and signage grants; the close proximity to the Crowne Plaza San Marcos Golf

First-time homebuyers get help


In an effort to educate more residents about Chandler’s First-Time Homebuyer’s Program, the city offers a workshop from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. Tue., Aug. 24 in Room 205 of the Chandler Community Center.


Under the program, the purchase price of a home is reduced because the buyer only pays for the cost of the structure, not the land. The land is held in a trust by a nonprofi t group working with the City to administer the program. Qualifi ed buyers help select the house they want to purchase and the homes receive extensive renovations, including new appliances, paint, carpet, weatherproofi ng, landscaping and repairs.


To qualify, buyers cannot have owned a home in the last three years, and a family of four cannot make more than $80,000.


The program, made possible by grants from the Neighborhood Stabilization Program and the HOME Investment Partnership Fund, has already helped 11 families purchase homes in Chandler.


Chandler Community Center is located at 125 E. Commonwealth Ave. in downtown Chandler. To register, call Chandler’s Neighborhood Resources Division at 480-782-4320.
