12-11-19 Charter Review Commission Meeting Reminder

The Alachua County 2020 Charter Review Commission (CRC) will meet tonight, Wednesday, December 11, 2019, at 5:30 p.m. in the Jack Durrance Auditorium (room 209), located on the second floor of the Alachua County Administration Building (12 S.E. 1st Street, downtown Gainesville). The public is encouraged to attend and submit ideas for Charter Amendments.

In 1986, the electorate established a home rule charter for Alachua County. This gave the County the full local home rule benefits afforded by the Constitution of the State of Florida. Every ten years the CRC reviews the Charter and proposes amendments or revisions for placement on the general election ballot, which in the case of this CRC would be the November 2020 ballot.

The members of the 2020 CRC are Penny Wheat (Chair), Joe Little (Vice-Chair), Douglas Bernal, K. Richard Blount, Scott Camil, Eric Drummond, James Ingle, Pradeep Kumar, Erroll “Stanley” Richardson, Tamara Robbins, James Thompson, and Kristen Young.

The meeting agenda includes: 

  • Presentation by the Supervisor of Elections Office
  • Workplan Dates/Timelines/Evaluation Diagram/Meetings
  • Discussion with Mark Sexton, Director of Communications
  • Review of Alachua County Charter
  • Proposals submitted including CRC-19-01 Remove Unconstitutional Residency Requirement, CRC-19-02 Amend to be Inclusive of all classifications of persons, CRC-19-03 Land-Use Designation in Annexed Areas, CRC-19-04 College Student Voting, and CRC-19-05 County Commission Elections by District




The public is encouraged to attend the meeting. The meeting will be available to view on Cox Cable Channel 12, Facebook Live, and the County’s Video on Demand website.
