City Council Announces Request for Residents to Self-Nominate for Charter Committee

View of Cambridge City Hall from Air
Following the 2021 ballot questions that changed the city’s Plan E Charter to include a charter review every 10 years, the City Council has released an application for residents to self-nominate to the Charter Review Committee. The Charter Review Committee will have between 10 and 15 members. No elected officials are permitted to serve on this Committee -- only registered voters in the City of Cambridge. Per the passage of the ballot initiatives this past November, the Committee will review the Charter, hold extensive community forums and gather input from all stakeholders and residents, and provide recommendations based on their findings to the City Council. Any proposed changes will be sent for review by the City Council and any recommendations for changes the City Council proposes will be put before all voters in a municipal election prior to adoption. The Charter Review Committee itself will represent the diversity of the city.

To self-nominate, please click on this form. The deadline to submit is Tuesday, June 28, 2022 at 11:00pm.

Please email cambridgechartercommittee@gmail.com with any questions.
