City Projects

Improvements to city facilities, recreational amenities, streets and utility infrastructure equip us to serve the needs of residents and businesses. This page highlights major city-funded projects underway in Chandler. Residents' input help shape projects as they progress through phases of planning, design and construction. 

Thanks to Chandler voters in the November 2021 bond election, funds were allocated to update Fire Station No. 282, also known at Fire Station #2, located on Alma School Road, south of Warner. Work began in August 2022 and the project is being built by Core Construction.

City Council approved $5.8 million for phased reconstruction of this station. The new station will have the capacity for a second engine company, which will improve response times. Fire Station #2 will remain fully operational during the reconstruction process and the project is expected to be completed in fall 2023.

For more information, visit Fire Station #2.

A project assessment was completed in Fall 2022 with the information, exhibits, and final report from that effort provided below. The project is currently in design.

After final design is completed (anticipated in 2024), bid documents will be prepared, advertised, and awarded to the successful construction contractor. Construction is anticipated to begin in 2025.

The Chandler City Council authorized a citywide effort to convert streetlights from high-pressure sodium to new energy-efficient LED light fixtures.  

Chandler operates and maintains more than 28,000 streetlights along city streets. About 10,000 of those are LED lights. The remaining 18,000 streetlights are being converted to more energy-efficient LED lights within neighborhoods and along major roadways.  

The LED conversion will significantly reduce Chandler’s streetlight electricity consumption while also significantly reducing future maintenance, material and supply costs.  

The Streets Division utilizes a variety of industry-standard pavement maintenance treatment measures to maintain more than 2,080 lane miles of roadway sections. These treatments include Crack Seal, Asphalt Emulsion Seal, Asphalt Rejuvenator Seal, Slurry Seal, Asphalt Patch, and Asphalt Mill and Overlay/Inlay. 

ADA improvements are performed on existing pedestrian pathways within the City of Chandler right of way along roadway sections programmed to receive asphalt repaving. This may include the pedestrian pathway segment that also acts as the adjacent property driveway.

ADA improvements are performed on arterial, collector and residential roadway sections.

Chandler is implementing strategies to reduce municipal ornamental grass to reduce city water use. The city has initiated several projects to convert turf retention basins to xeriscape design principles to conserve water.
This project is being completed in phases. In the first phase, the City of Chandler is considering converting turf to xeriscape in six retention basins.
Visit Turf to Xeriscape for more information about this project.

The City of Chandler, in partnership with the Maricopa Association of Governments, is working on creating safer trail connections across major roads in the city. The purpose is to increase the safety of pedestrians, bicyclists, and drivers.​
