Downtown Chandler Community Partnership

The City of Chandler partners with the DCCP, a 501(c) (6) not-for-profit corporation, whose mission is to mobilize leadership and resources to advance the development of Downtown Chandler as a regional destination for shopping, dining, living, culture, and the arts. It works on behalf of the Enhanced Municipal District, created in 2006, to provide enhanced marketing and promotion, safety, and beautification of the downtown area beyond what is done by the City of Chandler and downtown merchants. 

The District is bordered on the north by Chandler Blvd; the south by Frye Road; the east by Delaware Street; and the west through Dakota, California and Oregon streets.
