Hey Harlem, The Charter Revision Commission Wants To Hear From You!

May 1, 2019

The 2019 Charter Revision Commission released a preliminary staff report on proposed changes to the Charter in four areas: elections, governance, finance, and land use.

You can see the proposed changes here.

Over the next few weeks, the commission will hold borough hearings on these draft proposals. The first, in Queens, was held April 30.

Here are details for the upcoming hearings:

Thursday, May 2: Brooklyn
Brooklyn Borough Hall, 6:00 pm

Tuesday, May 7: Bronx
Lehman College Lovinger Theatre, 6:00 pm
250 Bedford Park Blvd. West

Thursday, May 9: Manhattan
Council Chambers, City Hall, 6:00 pm

Tuesday, May 14: Staten Island
College of S.I., Williamson Theatre, 6:00 pm
Building 1P, Rm. 116, 2800 Victory Blvd.

I hope you will attend a hearing. Testimony is heard on a first-come, first-served basis and begins promptly at 6:00 pm (the last Manhattan hearing ran until 1:00 am, so come prepared!).

You may also submit written testimony here.
