Overview

The Charter Review Commission provides residents an opportunity to directly participate in shaping the Charter to meet the City’s needs in such areas as public services, efficiency of resources, effective local democracy and the aspirations of the City as a whole.

Per the Charter, the City will review the document every 10 years and the Charter Commission will be made up of members of the public.

The role of the Charter Review Commission was established for the purpose of reviewing the Charter for the City of Raymore, Missouri, to determine whether or not the Charter will adequately serve the community into the future and to report to the voters as many amendments to the Charter as the Commission deems advisable.

The application process is now closed. Raymore City Council Members will be selecting those individuals who will serve on the Charter Review Commission in the coming weeks.
