When was the last time you visited Downtown Chandler? If it has been more than a few months, you are in for a treat when you come downtown.  On a recent Friday night, while looking for a nice place to enjoy a glass of wine and maybe hear some music, my spouse and I first approached the Kokopelli Winery.  With a wine tasting going on, there was standing room only inside.  Outside a band played to crowded tables as well.  We moved across the street to 98 South (used to be Razzleberries) and worked our way to the bar area at the back of the restaurant.  A two piece jazz group was playing standards while we were able to find a seat on a cozy couch.  Later a saxophonist joined the group (it was announced he used to play with the Commodores - pre-Lionel Richie) and added a rich voice to the g...

There is a new place in Chandler where people can go to cool off during the summer heat.  The Mesquite Groves Aquatic Center opened July 19th, and was at capacity within an hour and a half.  The facility is adjacent to Basha High School near Val Vista Drive and Riggs Road.  This is Chandler's sixth public aquatics facility.  You can see all of the Chandler aquatics facilities by clicking here.  The Mesquite Groves Aquatic Center features two slides, one is open and one is closed.  It also features a lazy river feeding into the play pool, a spray pad with water buckets for children, and an eight lane competition pool and two diving boards. Now that school is in session, hours are 9am - noon, and 4pm - 7pm weekdays for the children's pool.  The entire facility is open Saturday and Sunday ...

Chandler has continued to see a downward trend in home prices since the latter half of 2006. 2007 finished the year off with a depreciation rate of about 12% and the first decline in homes in over 15 years.  June Residential HighlightsClosed sales are continuing to increase and June saw 358 homes sold vs. 340 in May, a 5% increase. It appears that we have possibly hit bottom as closed sales have continued to creep up and have increased every month since Sept. 2007 with the exception of January. Pending sales also showed a jump and are on track to continue to improve with approximately 399 homes currently pending and another 100 homes under contract. New listings are continuing to decrease, a very good sign that we are finally selling off the excess inventory. An interest side note is th...

Chandler Arizona was recently ranked as number 30 on Money Magazine's "Best Places To Live" list.  Being a Chandler resident for the past 12 years, I am very proud that our city has reached that designation.  The study used education, crime, weather, housing, job growth, and quality of life as their determining factors.  Some of the great things I have discovered about Chandler are as follows: EDUCATION: Chandler/Gilbert Community College - CJCC has been named for the second year in a row to the U.S. President's Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll. Only 68 community colleges received this reward, out of the nation's 1100 community colleges. Chandler-Gilbert Community College was one of only four colleges nationwide to receive the 2007 Campus Sustainability Leadership Award in ...

Debra Ludlow had lived in the Tradition East neighborhood for 15 years but didn't really know all of her neighbors. But things began to change last year when some of her neighbors began to band together to improve things in the community near Chandler Boulevard and Cooper Road. The group applied for a Chandler traditional neighborhood grant and used the money to spruce up common walls, get dumpsters for neighborhood cleanup and even held a block party that got people out of their homes and into the street mingling with one another. "After 15 years there were people in my cul-de-sac that I had never seen," Ludlow said. "They'd drive their cars into the garage and go into the house through the garage. I knew what their cars looked like, but not the people. Now I see people in the grocery ...
