Charter Review CommissionThe Charter Review Commission was created by the City to advise and make recommendations to the City Council and City Manager on issues affecting the provisions of the City Charter.

Most recently, the Commission recommended that the City Council place a measure on the ballot to allow voters to determine whether the City should change from “at-large" elections to “district” elections. Currently, all Council members are elected at-large - voted on by all citizens. District elections mean the City would be divided up geographically into four voting districts and one council member would have to live in each district. In November 2012, the voters elected to switch to district elections. This change will be phased-in, beginning with the 2016 elections. By 2018, all four City Council members will be elected by district. The Mayor will continue to be elected at-large.

The Charter Review Commission continues to review and consider issues related to the City Charter in order to advise and make recommendations to the City Council. The Commission’s meetings are typically held on the first Wednesday of the month, in the Civic Center Plaza, and are open to the public.

If you have any questions or feedback – please let us know.

Thank you,
 Your Charter Review Commission.
