Mayor's Initiatives

Aligned with Chandler’s vision to be a world-class City that provides an exceptional quality of life, Mayor Kevin Hartke has outlined several initiatives that work toward achieving strategic policy goals. The Mayor encourages all Chandler residents and businesses to get involved to learn more about these important initiatives.


CIVIC is an interactive, 10-session program providing Chandler residents with a behind-the-scenes look at city services. This free program launched in January 2021 and is the latest offering by the City of Chandler to help residents connect with their government. Each session, participants will meet with city leaders, tour facilities that keep our city running, participate in interactive sessions and learn how to stay engaged with the city and in their community.


The Mayor's HOA Roundtable is designed to educate members of a homeowners association as well as engage residents in conversations about the experiences and challenges they face within their own HOA.

As part of the Neighborhood Advisory Committee's commitment to the community, the NAC hosts Envision, informal events held throughout the year in various Chandler neighborhoods that provide the community an opportunity to meet with Mayor Kevin Hartke and members of the City Council and for them to listen to residents speak out on the various challenges facing their neighborhoods.



Mayor Kevin Hartke has long been a supporter of active and engaged neighborhoods. The Neighborhood Excellence Awards is a way to recognize neighborhoods that participate in G.A.I.N., and the leaders working to improve their community and inspire others to be more active and involved.
