Charter Review Committee

Community Input - Get Involved

The City of Santa Clara encourages your participation in this process to provide input on whether the City Charter should be changed to adopt the six Council district plan and sequencing currently in place for electing City Councilmembers by district or to examine if there is community support for some other configuration for electing councilmembers by district. Santa Clara voters will continue to elect the mayor at-large.

About the Charter Review Committee

The Charter Review Committee acts in an advisory capacity to the City Council in matters pertaining specifically to soliciting public input on draft language to amend the City of Santa Clara Charter with respect to council district elections. The committee members are volunteers and are appointed by the City Council. The City Council appointed Charter Review Committee members at a special meeting on July 10, 2019. The committee is made up of six Council district representatives and one at-large member.
