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.

The CRC meets monthly on the fourth Friday from 10 a.m. - 11:30 a.m. in the Board of County Commissioners' Conference Room unless noted otherwise. Additional meetings will be held as needed on the second Thursday of each month from 3 p.m. - 5 p.m. View the Committee calendar to confirm meeting dates and details.

You may also attend virtually. Please see the individual meeting agendas for the virtual meeting link and further details.
