CHANDLER, Ariz. –  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. Starting Monday, Oct. 4, Chandler residents may complete the survey at Chandler Budget. The survey will be available through Sunday, Nov. 14, 2021.

City staff asks that residents answer at least the first seven 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 and five focus areas, which include:
