Nextdoor - Communications for Neighbors
The City of Chandler is pleased to use Nextdoor to help facilitate greater communication between neighbors and the City. We believe that connected and engaged neighbors lead to safer communities.

It’s important to note that City staff can only see our posts and replies to our posts, but we can NOT access or view any information that you or your neighbors have shared on your Nextdoor website. Access to your neighborhood is still restricted to members who verify that they live within the neighborhood boundary.

Communicating with City staff is voluntary. You can choose to:
- comment publicly on city posts to start a community dialogue
- contact city staff via private message
- mute city staff if you’d prefer not to receive updates
To get started with Nextdoor or to see if your neighborhood already participates in Nextdoor, visit their web page at
