The city of Chandler is approaching a crossroads with what to do with its aging public housing.
It can continue putting band-aids on 303 units the city constructed back in the 1970s, and hope the federal government will cover the tab.
Or the city could consider partnering with private developers and remove its responsibility for maintaining properties.
Leah Powell, Chandler’s neighborhood resources director, said something will need to be done soon because capital funding from U.S. Housing and Urban Development is diminishing.
