Orange County, Florida has been governed by Charter since 1987. The County’s Charter is like its constitution, and grants our own citizens and citizen-elected officials control over local and regional issues. This control adapts and evolves with our community as the Charter Review Commission (CRC) convenes every four (4) years to assess the powers of this home-rule document. Fifteen (15) appointed citizen representatives utilize research, discussion, professional advisors, and input from the public to develop questions that may be placed on the ballot during a presidential election year.
The next CRC will be appointed in early 2023 and will seek input on charter provisions that may be placed on the November 2024 general election ballot.
