Q: My Account: I received the following error message: "The street address below does not match our records. If correct, please choose 'Leave address as entered'. Otherwise select correct information from the Alternatives list or correct address manually."
A: We now have the ability to verify Chandler residency status through an address file. Non-residents and those residing in a county island are welcome to create an account and utilize our programs and services. The error message is basically stating that your address is not identifiable as a Chandler address.

If you are a non-resident, choose "Leave address as entered" and continue the account set-up process.

If you are a Chandler Resident, you may need to remove punctuation from your address line, check the street spelling, or check the abbreviation for RD, PL, ST, BL, CT. If that does not correct the issue please contact our staff and we will be happy to assist you. You may also verify your address online at www.chandleraz.gov/infomap (if your address is in an area with cross-hatch markings this is considered a county island and you will be assessed the non-resident rates).
Q: My Account: I received the following error: Login name 'email address' is being used by another account. Please specify a unique email address to be used as login name.

A: For adults you may either enter your date of birth or select Age Category. However, to register for an activity or to purchase a membership package with a specific age requirement an adult participant will need to have date of birth completed and not an age category selected.

For all customers under the age of 18 yrs of age a date of birth MUST be entered.
Q: My Account: Why can't I change my address?
A: This function has been disabled online because of our resident verification requirements.

Our new registration system (ActiveNet) uses Chandler street address ranges to verify residency. Individuals can verify their residency by visiting chandleraz.gov/infomap. Customers living outside the Corporate Limits of the City of Chandler are no longer eligible to receive resident rates. If customers are charged a non-resident fee while completing their registration, staff will be happy to re-verify their address. However, if staff is unable to verify through our resources customers will be asked to provide one of more of the following documents to verify residency:

1.Most recent year property tax bill
2.Business license and check imprinted with a Chandler address
3. City of Chandler water and trash collection bill - no more than 30 days old (stand alone water bill not accepted).

Individuals providing fraudulent information to obtain services or to secure a resident identification card will be dropped from the activity with no refund.
Q: My Account: Why can't I change the birthdate of myself or family members?
A: This function has been disabled online to prevent customers from changing the birthdates of family members. If you have entered the wrong birthday, please do not add the individual again. Please call any recreation or aquatic center and a customer service representative will be happy to correct the birthday for you.
