The mission of this Commission is to review the Charter and propose any amendments or revisions which may be advisable for placement on the 2020 general election ballot.
The citizens of Alachua County, Florida, believed that governmental decisions affecting local interests should be made locally rather than by the State. To provide the County the full home rule benefits afforded by the Constitution of the State of Florida to charter counties, the electorate established a home rule charter for Alachua County, Florida. The Charter allows for amendments to be proposed by a Charter Review Commission, which convenes every ten (10) years. The Alachua County Board of County Commissioners has established a twelve (12) member 2020 Charter Review Commission for the 2019-2020 review period.
