The Minneapolis Charter Amendment Proposals are three ballot measures whose supporters hoped to get them placed on the November 3, 2009 ballot in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The city's Charter Commission voted on June 3, 2009 to send just one of the three measures to the city's voters.[1]

A proposal to abolish the Board of Estimate and Taxation was the only one to make it.

Rejected amendments

The two proposals that didn't make it were:

  • Replacing the semi-independent Minneapolis Park Board with an appointed advisory board.
  • Establishing the position of City Administrator who would have authority over the city's operations.[1]

Charter commission

The proposed measures did not accumulate much support from the city council members, therefore the decision of whether or not to put the measures on the November ballot came from the City Charter's Commission.[2]
