The General Plan update replaces the current General Plan adopted by City Council on June 26, 2008 and ratified by voters on November 4, 2008. Due to Chandler’s maturing nature and the state statute requirement for general plans to be ratified every ten years, the City of Chandler initiated a community process to update the plan in early 2015. The theme, “a vision refined,” reflects the fact that this update is not a complete overhaul of the current General Plan, but rather a refinement of the vision for how the City should grow in the future.  The update builds upon the community’s strong vision and Chandler’s long history of quality city planning.



The Chandler General Plan contains a comprehensive set of policies and is an expression of the City’s vision for growth, development, redevelopment, and neighborhood enhancement and preservation. The process of updating the General Plan is the process of determining how to guide and shape the City’s future as it achieves build-out and continues to mature.

The General Plan Update includes:
  • A vision statement that guides decision making;
  • A plan for managing growth and development, including all modes of transportation;
  • Strategies to ensure economic viability to ensure residents’ quality of life; and,
  • Goals and policies related to several key growth topics including economic development, housing, neighborhood enhancement, neighborhood preservation, transportation, infrastructure, health, safety, and recreation.
