Proposed Amendments to the Broward County Charter
Changes to the Broward County charter may be proposed by the County Commission or by voter initiative. At a Special Commission Meeting on June 18, 2020, the Board of County Commissioners approved three potential charter amendments, to go on the General Election Ballot for November 3, 2020. The potential charter amendments include:
- Use of Regional Parks to Protect Public Health and Safety During Declared State of Emergency
- Ability to Use Regional Parks for Siting and Operating Emergency Communications Infrastructure
- County Regulation of the Development of Surtax-Funded Transportation Improvements on County Property
These proposed charter amendments must be approved by a majority of the electorate in order to be included in the Charter.
