2018-2019 Charter Review Commission

The 2018-2019 Charter Review Commission has begun the decennial process of reviewing the King County Charter and making recommendations for amendment.

The King County Charter provides the basic long-term structure for King County government. The Charter institutionalizes core values of checks and balances, accountability, and merit, and seeks to promote an effective, efficient and responsive government. 

All Charter Review Commission meetings are open to the public: Meeting Schedule


How to provide feedback

handoutthumbIn order to guide our work, the Charter Review Commission is conducting broad, robust community outreach to collect input on how the charter might be improved or changed, which in turn could help make King County government more responsive and effective.

Thank you to everyone who joined us at our community meetings in February to share feedback on potential amendments to the King County Charter. Your feedback is important to our work. You may also submit your feedback via email at
