Arvada City Charter Amendments
The Arvada City Charter describes the powers and essential functions of our local government. Essentially, the Charter is the City of Arvada’s Constitution. A review of the City Charter is performed every ten years to ensure it evolves to meet the needs of the community. Changes to the City Charter can only be made by a vote of Arvada citizens.
