Charter Amendment Process

The City Charter is like the constitution for the City of Minneapolis. Minneapolis first adopted its own home-rule charter in 1920, defining the power citizens agree to give their city government and how the government is to be structured. The Charter has undergone approximately one hundred amendments since its adoption, including a comprehensive Plain-Language Charter revision that was approved by Minneapolis voters in 2013, and became effective January 1, 2015. The Minneapolis Charter Commission oversees the amendment process.
