Help Modernize the National Civic League’s Model City Charter

July 20, 2020

Recent debates in local government over public health, race equity, and policing have raised important issues, including questions about the distribution of power and decision-making responsibility.

The National Civic League (NCL) is looking for volunteers to assist in efforts to review, revise, and update the Model City Charter to ensure that the document best reflects the realities facing local governments in the 21st century.

To serve on one of NCL’s charter review committees, contact Mike McGrath at (303) 571-4343 or

You can also take a brief survey to help prioritize which sections of the Model City Charter are most in need of updating or revising.
