Chandler provides help with code compliance issues
By the town of Chandler
Chandler’s Neighborhood Preservation Division has a team of code inspectors who are assigned to areas throughout the city.
Part of their job is to make sure every home and business in their area is burn-free and up to city code. Last year, our team of code inspectors completed a total of 41,679 inspections.
As part of their work in the community, code inspectors often discover homes that need additional care. In many cases, owners are unable to maintain their property because they may be elderly or physically unable to care for their property.
In these situations, our inspectors work with Neighborhood Programs staff to help match a group of volunteers to help the homeowner through our Let’s Pull Together initiative.
Let’s Pull Together works with local faith-based organizations and volunteer groups from major employers to get help from homeowners in need with minor code compliance issues.
The city has worked closely with Amazon, Antioch Community Church, Compass Christian Church, Home Depot, Proof. Pest Control, Target and Zovio, to name a few.
We are grateful for these partnerships that benefit our neighborhoods and help prevent further deterioration of our community. Last year, Let’s Pull Together volunteers helped 60 households, up from 14 last year, with gardening, cleaning lanes and painting the exterior of houses.
Last fall, the City unveiled its rebranded “Tools on the Go” tool loaner program with an eye-catching new trailer packaging design.
Residents or community volunteer groups can check out a compact trailer full of tools and supplies for a cleanup project for free. We provide all the tools and just need volunteer labor.
If you know a resident who needs the Let’s Pull Together program, or if you are willing to volunteer as an individual or part of a group, or borrow our Tools on the Go trailer, contact the Programs Office Neighborhood Center at 480-782-4348 or email [email protected]
Another key area of the Neighborhood Preservation Division includes the graffiti removal program. We have a dedicated staff member who is committed to removing reported graffiti within 24 hours.
In 2021, 978 incidents of graffiti were reported and our team removed 41,354 square feet of graffiti, a 178% increase in incidents over the previous year.
We have received compliments from many residents on the response time of graffiti removal and the communication and understanding of our team of inspectors when working with residents.
Residents and our team of code inspectors and the only graffiti remover work hand in hand to keep Chandler clean and beautiful. By taking pride in our community and keeping it burn-free, we can keep property values high and ensure our city remains vibrant and safe.
