The Charter Revision Commission (CRC) is a State mandated review of the Town Charter to ensure this governing document represents best practices and our town's unique needs and desires. After extensive review, research and discussion, the CRC makes its recommendations to the Board of Selectmen at which time that board weighs in as well.  Ultimately, the residents of Suffield will approve any and all changes to the Town Charter by voting at a referendum to be held in conjunction with the November 2, 2021 municipal elections.
