Home Rule Charters

Home rule municipalities are political subdivisions, either cities or boroughs, who have adopted a home rule charter. In Alaska, they have all legislative powers not prohibited by law or charter. Alaska Statute Chapter 29.10 discusses home rule municipalities, and specifically how to become a home rule municipality.

The Division of Community and Regional Affairs provides a Model Home Rule Charter for different types of municipalities in Alaska, in accordance with Alaska Statute 29.10.020.

The following are links to charters for home rule municipalities across Alaska, followed by the model home rule charters provided by DCRA.
