Welcome to the official public comment page of Consensus, the Commission on Local Government Modernization. Established in 2014, the Commission’s goal is to shape a vision for more effective and efficient governance across Onondaga County.
After nearly three years of development, citizen-led review and discussion, Syracuse and Onondaga County stand at the forefront of communities examining local government services and structures across New York and around the country. Our community now stands ready to advance a new vision of what local government structures looks like for generations to come.
The release of the Final Consensus Report is not the end of this process for our community. Its the next step in a process that we believe can provide our community with more effective and efficient services, and responsive, inclusive representation for all. We believe modernized and streamlined structures and services also create a better environment for economic growth and sustainability. We welcome community collaboration and changes as we move toward implementation.
This website was created to give you an opportunity to make your voice heard. Please join the conversation in helping shape this monumental reform.
