[Source: East Valley Tribune] – Chandler has pledged $400,000 to Gangplank, a technology-oriented nonprofit, to help redevelop a historic downtown building, the first such project to fall under new guidelines aimed at transforming the downtown into a thriving community core.

Derek Neighbors, Gangplank co-founder, said the group provides space for hundreds of technology-oriented professionals to come together, share ideas and develop products and business models. Downtown Chandler has many of the amenities – such as an urban location and nearby entertainment and dining options – that could help attract people in technology, he said.
