Charter Review Committee

Lane County government operates under a home rule charter approved by voters in 1962. In 2010, Lane County voters approved an amendment to the Charter directing the Board of Commissioners to convene a Charter Review Committee (CRC) for the purpose of reviewing and recommending changes or updates to the existing charter every ten years. The CRC is comprised of seven members. Each Commissioner appoints one member to the CRC, and those appointees nominate additional individuals to fill two at large positions to be appointed by the Board.

If interested in applying for the CRC, please submit the below Application Package with completed Applicant Information and Questions (pages 1-3) and the Conflict of Interest Statement (page 4) and Certification Form. Names, addresses and other identifying information will be redacted in order for the Commissioners and appointees to select committee members in an unbiased process.
