Do you have a clean driving record and type 40 words per minute? If so, you might find work as a "Googler" testing self-driving cars in Chandler.
Google has begun accepting resumes for drivers of self-driving cars as they navigate to map Chander city streets throughout Arizona's tech hub.

#Chandler is the first city in Arizona to test Google’s self-driving cars
  
The City of Chandler has been selected by Google as the next testing location for its self-driving car project. Four test cars already have hit the streets of Chandler to create a detailed map of the streets as well as get more experience driving in desert conditions. Residents can expect to see test cars as Google continues to prepare for the unveiling of its self-driving cars.
 
“I’m honored that Google selected Chandler as the first city in Arizona to continue testing its self-driving cars project,” said Mayor Jay Tibshraeny. “Google is a perfect fit; adding to our growing list of technology companies doing business in Chandler. This decision by Google cements our reputation as the premiere innovation and technology hub of the Southwest.”
 
Google's testing will begin in Chandler and expand to other parts of the Phoenix metro area, making it the fourth location in the country to host a testing program. Testing fleets are currently in the cities of Mountain View, Calif., Austin, Texas and Kirkland, Wash.
 
For more information on how the car works, residents may visit google.com/selfdrivingcar. Residents also can share feedback on how the cars are driving and how they would like to use a self-driving car.

Looking for a way to give back and assist those in need? The City of Chandler is looking for volunteers to assist with its annual “Let’s Pull Together” community service events, which are held every Saturday during the month of April (April 2, 9, 16 and 23). The initiative helps beautify Chandler neighborhoods during the weed season.

Volunteers are assigned to help remove weeds from alleys and public areas as well as assist seniors and disabled residents with their front yard maintenance. Senior or disabled residents who need assistance with weed removal are encouraged to contact the City’s Neighborhood Program’s Office at 480-782-4354.

Chandler residents are requested to report properties and public areas with weeds. To make a report, call 480-782-4320 or complete an online form at chandleraz.gov/forms/sr.aspx. Residents also have the option to make a report using the free “Chandler PublicStuff”mobile app.


If you are interested in volunteering or know someone in need of assistance, contact Cristabel Dykstra with the City’s Neighborhood Programs Office at 480-782-4354 or email cristabel.dykstra@chandleraz.gov.

Improvements to McQueen Road in south Chandler will be the subject of a public meeting to be held at 6 p.m., Tuesday, March 29, at Chandler’s Hamilton Branch Library, 3700 S. Arizona Avenue. 

Construction is about to begin on the final leg of McQueen Road to be improved in south Chandler; the two-lane segment between Chandler Heights and Riggs Road. The roadway is bordered on the west by the Paseo Crossings and Rockwood Estates neighborhoods and on the east primarily by unincorporated areas. 

The City has been widening McQueen south of the Santan Freeway over the past decade. The upcoming project will take approximately $4 million and eight months to complete and will widen the roadway to four lanes, plus bike lanes, turn lanes, landscaped medians, street lighting, storm drains, curb, gutter, sidewalks and the extension of underground water, sewer and reclaimed water lines. 

Grey Mountain Construction, LLC, was awarded the construction contract, of which $3 million comes from a federal grant. Traffic volumes on the current roadway average 8,300 vehicles per weekday at the southern end and increase to 28,000 vehicles daily at the point where McQueen reaches the Loop 202 Santan Freeway.

Information about the project will be available online in late March at McQueenRoadChandler.com and a 24-hour hotline (602-750-7139) has been established for persons having questions or concerns during construction.

Blood donations can decline by up to 25% during the Memorial holiday week, but heavy traffic on the roads and highways can increase the potential for accidents and the need for blood. Thank you, Rubios, for rewarding May 27-June 3 donors with a voucher for a free taco in appreciation for saving lives around the holiday! #UnitedBloodServices

When it rains in the Valley, do you know where the stormwater runoff goes? The answer may surprise you.

Visitors to Chandler’s popular Paseo Vista Recreational Area will encounter construction activity over the next five months. The work is associated with a $1.3 million project to improve the drainage system. The 64-acre recreational area is located on the northwest corner of McQueen and Ocotillo roads atop Chandler’s former landfill, which closed in 2005.
 
The landfill was transformed into a recreational area in 2009, but over the past six years several areas along the slopes of the site have eroded during storm events. The drainage system has been redesigned to better control stormwater runoff. The construction project will remove and relocate some of the existing rock channels and rock filled gabion baskets and install new concrete channels and stormwater piping. Ground compaction and the application of new groundcover also will occur.
 
The construction will be coordinated with the City’s Parks Division to minimize impact on recreational use while maintaining public safety. The archery range and frisbee golf course may be closed for short periods of time to accommodate the work, along with the southbound curb lane of McQueen Road during installation of a concrete channel. 
 
The work is being performed by Redpoint Contracting of Phoenix and is to be completed by Labor Day.
