Every Christmas holiday season since 1957, Downtown Chandler has been home to one of the most unique traditions in the southwest, the Tumbleweed Tree. This video tells the story of when Chandler resident Earle Barnum first raised the idea of a tumbleweed tree, and residents of the community helped construct it using tumbleweeds that they gathered from around town. And see how members of the City's Park Operations Division gather tumbleweeds and build this spectacular tree that helps to bring our community together during the holidays.

If you live in Chandler and have been missed in Chandler’s 2015 Special Census, it’s not too late to be counted.
 
The City has worked with the U.S. Census Bureau to establish a phone bank staffed by sworn Census enumerators to obtain the information over the phone. The phone number is 480-782-3269 and will be activated Monday, Nov. 30, at 8 a.m.
 
Chandler residents who believe they were missed or want to verify that everyone in their household was accurately counted can speak with a Census worker the week of Nov. 30. Phones will be staffed from 9 a.m. until 8 p.m., Monday, Nov. 30, through Friday, Dec. 4, plus Saturday, Dec. 5 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday, Dec. 6, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
 
Chandler and six other Arizona cities and towns are participating in a mid-decade Census to update their population counts, which can translate into additional state shared revenues to fund City services.
 
“By being counted, Chandler receives funding that helps provide the important City services our residents rely on,” Mayor Jay Tibshraeny said. “This money helps pay for essential public services such as police and fire protection, properly maintained streets, parks, libraries and more.”
 
Census Bureau enumerators have been going door to door collecting Census data since October. Approximately 90 percent of the City has been counted. They will continue to knock on doors in Chandler neighborhoods through early December.

The Chandler Fire, Health & Medical (CFHM) Department is once again collecting toys during the holiday season with all donations benefitting disadvantaged children in the community. The highlight of the annual toy drive is the Holiday Toy Ride, where anyone who donates a new, unwrapped toy on Saturday, Dec. 12, 2015, from 2-8 p.m. at Chandler Fashion Center will receive a ride in a fire engine.

The toy collection point at Chandler Fashion Center is near the valet parking area outside of the food court on the south side of the mall. An adult must accompany all children 6 years of age and younger on their ride. CFHM also requests that donated toys not be battery operated. Toy donations can also be dropped off in the lobby of the Fire Administration Headquarters at 151 E. Boston Street through Dec. 15 or at any Chandler fire station.

Holiday Safety Tips from the Chandler Police Department

The start of this year’s holiday shopping season is fast approaching. While this time of year is for celebrating all of the blessings in our lives, the hectic pace and deadlines add stress as well. With this comes a lack of focus, and the results can lead to victimization or tragedy.

When you’re out shopping this year, remember to conceal any items of value in your vehicle. Remember where you parked and which door or store entrance you used when shopping at a mall. Park your vehicle in a well-lit area and, whenever possible, avoiding shopping alone.

Be aware of your surroundings in the parking lot and while you’re shopping. Avoid looking down at your cellular phone when you should be watching for potential dangers around you. Try not to become overloaded with shopping bags – this can make you an easy target for would-be thieves.

Avoid confrontations with other shoppers or drivers. Defensive driving and roadway courtesy can prevent a collision or road rage incident. If you do encounter an aggressive or hostile driver, avoid the conflict, leave the area, and contact the police.

And please remember to always wear your seatbelt and to designate a driver when alcohol consumption is a part of your holiday celebration.
