Community Boards

Description

Community Boards are local representative bodies. Each of the 59 Community Boards is comprised of up to 50 unsalaried members, appointed by the Borough President in consultation with the City Council Members who represent any part of the Board district. The Boards play an advisory role in zoning and other land-use issues, in community planning, in the city budget process, and in the coordination of municipal services. Any person with a residence, business, professional or other significant interest in a given area is eligible for appointment to the Community Board serving that area. Each Board hires a full time District Manager and other staff to run a district office that receives and works to resolve residents' service delivery problems.
