Timely topics tackled by Chandler Neighborhood Academies
Recent developments in homeowner association (HOA) law will be among the topics presented at Chandler’s free HOA Academy beginning Sept. 5 and the how-tos of organizing your first neighborhood meeting will be explained at the City’s Traditional (non-HOA) Neighborhood Academy beginning Sept. 19.
The two neighborhood academies are accepting applications for their stimulating series of classes designed to promote successful and sustainable neighborhoods by providing information, education, networking and leadership development opportunities.
The six-week HOA Academy will include a class on the legislative process as it relates to planned communities and condominiums and discuss recurring HOA-related issues addressed by the state legislature.
The City is partnering with the law firms of Shaw & Lines, Carpenter Hazelwood and Mulcahy Law to present the HOA Academy which will be held every Wednesday beginning Sept. 5 and running through Oct. 10. Five of the six classes will be held from 6 - 8:30 p.m. at Chandler City Hall, 2nd floor Training Room A, 175 S. Arizona Avenue. Class number four regarding City Resources will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. in the Council Chambers adjacent to City Hall.
The series of four weekly classes making up the Traditional Neighborhood Academy will include development of a neighborhood survey and include sessions on developing and implementing a neighborhood action plan.
The Traditional Neighborhood Academy will be held on consecutive Wednesdays beginning Sept. 19 and running through Oct. 10. Classes will be held from 6:30 - 8 p.m. in the Chandler City Hall, Training Room B, 175 S. Arizona Avenue, with the exception of the City Resources class which will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. in the Council Chambers adjacent to City Hall.
