Chandler an All-America City!
It’s official! Chandler is an All-America City! National Civic League judges chose the city as one of 10 winners of the prestigious, nationwide competition on Friday, June 18, 2010. Chandler was one of 27 finalists presenting at the 2010 All-America City Awards in Kansas City. Chandler is the only Arizona winner or finalist for the 61st annual awards.
Cities were asked to document three community projects addressing their communities’ most pressing challenges. The City of Chandler submitted documentation of the City’s collaborative efforts and partnerships with ICAN’s underage drinking taskforce, the CARE Center and its work providing medical care to Chandler students, and the Chandler Heights Community Facilities, which include a police substation, Environmental Education Center and water recharge facility.
“These three projects highlight the collaborative nature of the City of Chandler in our efforts to serve the residents of our community,” said Mayor Boyd Dunn. “These are great examples of the kind of creativity and innovation that keep Chandler a safe and healthy city with attractive amenities.”
NCL is a 116-year-old nonpartisan nonprofit organization that strengthens democracy by increasing the capacity of our nation’s people to fully participate in and build healthy and prosperous communities across America.
