Budget & CIP Planning

Planning for FY 2021-22 Proposed Budget and 2022-2031 CIP 

The preparation of Chandler’s budget is a collaborative effort between the City Council, City Manager, City Staff and the citizens of Chandler.


Resident Feedback Survey

Take the Survey

It’s that time of year again! The City of Chandler is starting its budget process and encourages residents to provide their thoughts about the community and its future. It will be available through Sunday, Nov. 15.

City staff asks residents to answer at least the first six general questions of the survey which should take about two minutes. The remaining questions allow you to provide specific feedback on any or all of our targeted topics. These topics are based on the six City Council strategic goals, which include: 

• Being the Most Connected City: (Transportation, Mobility, Technology)
• Being a Leader in Trust and Transparency: (Communication/Citizen Engagement)
• Maintaining Fiscal Sustainability: (Financial Services, Cost of Services)
• Attracting a Range of Private Sector Businesses: (Employment/Economic Vitality)
• Fostering a Contemporary Culture that Embraces Unity: (Arts, Culture, Recreation)
• Being Safe and Beautiful: (Public Safety, Parks Neighborhoods, Infrastructure)

The budget survey results are shared with the Mayor, City Councilmembers, City Manager and staff to assist in the formulation of the City’s financial plan.

Paper copies are also available in either English or Spanish, and may be downloaded or picked up at various City facilities, including libraries, community centers and the lobby of City Hall.

Scheduled Public Meetings

The Chandler City Council will hold a series of public meetings beginning in December 2020 to discuss and formulate the City’s 2021-22 budget, which begins July 1, 2021. The meetings will include presentations and discussions about the proposed operating and capital budgets, including the timing of projects in the City’s 10-year Capital Improvement Program. Each meeting will include opportunities for the public to listen and/or provide comments on the proposed City budget. Once the schedule is finalized, the public meeting dates will be listed below.

The all-day budget briefing will be aired live on Cox Cable 11, CenturyLink Channel 8502, and streamed through the City’s website at Chandler Video and YouTube
