The board is comprised of five Sugar Land residents who are anticipated to meet twice monthly through March 2019.
Sugar Land is a “Home Rule” city governed by a City Charter. In order for citizens to ensure their system of local governance is meeting their needs, a process was established in the 1981 Charter for periodic reviews and amendments. Every five years, the Charter requires City Council to establish a citizen Charter Review Commission to study the state and condition of local governance and recommend any needed changes to achieve the goals of efficiency, effectiveness, and equity.
The Charter Review Commission is an independent citizen advisory body whose responsibility is to make charter recommendations to the city council based on an assessment of the needs and alternatives among possible options for the governance of the city.
