New York’s Community Boards act as important intermediaries between city government and local neighborhoods. But without much explicit authority, Community Boards are only as strong as their members. We’ve seen Community Boards in the city press city agencies and elected officials for funding local priorities and take a stand against overdevelopment and upzoning.
Our local Community Board — CB3 — needs new members every year to maintain this sort of advisory role in an active manner. If you are interested in taking on a role like this in our neighborhood, you can apply online for an interview with the Borough President’s office by January 21.
If you are applying, please drop us a note to let us know!
