2019 NYC Charter Revision


The New York City Charter, established by the State Legislature in 1897, is the City's constitution, creating the framework for our government. The Charter controls how the City spends our tax dollars, how decisions are made about changes to our neighborhoods, and the powers of our elected officials.
