Charter Study Committee


The eleven-member Charter Study Committee will comprehensively study the City’s current charter, gather input from the community and ultimately propose recommendations on changes and content to the existing document. 

The Committee will submit recommended changes to the City Council and the Mayor which are designed to improve and modernize Medford’s structure and governance.

The Committee began meeting in December 2022 and currently meets monthly via Zoom on the first Thursday of each month at 6:30 pm. Members of the public are welcome to attend meetings, the last section of which will be reserved for public comment. Future opportunities for public comment will include community forum events and surveys. 

The Charter Study Committee is an Ad Hoc committee.
