Community Service Projects

Many City of Chandler departments have identified special projects that could be implemented if dedicated volunteers step up to make them happen. In some cases, members of the community have proposed interesting projects to the City for consideration, and worked with Chandler staff to bring those ideas to fruition. Many of these projects would not have happened without the assistance provided by prospective Eagle Scouts. In recent years, scouting service projects in municipal parks have included adding distance markers along pathways, planting trees, painting ramadas, refurbishing walking trails, and installing signs and benches. If you are a current Boy Scout preparing to apply to become an Eagle Scout, the City of Chandler may be able to provide you with some possible service project ideas to help you fulfill your quest.

The following is a list of City departments and community organizations to contact for more information:

Projects vary, and potential Eagle Scouts have numerous opportunities to participate in clean-ups and improvements to the parks in their community.
