Is this the only way to change the city's charter?

No. A Charter Review Commission is appointed every 10 years to review, analyze, and if appropriate, propose changes to the city charter, but there are two other ways the charter may be amended:

  1. City Council may, by a two-thirds vote, submit proposed amendments to voters.
  2. Registered voters may conduct a petition initiative to propose an amendment to the voters.
