Join Your Local Community Board in 2018

Jan 3, 2018
The Office of Manhattan Borough President Gale Brewer is now accepting applications for Community Board membership. New Yorkers living, working, or studying in one of Manhattan's 12 Community Board districts are encouraged to apply and participate in community organizing. Community Boards are each composed of 50 volunteer members serving staggered two-year terms and allow local community members a chance to communicate with the City and each other to consider important area issues, such as liquor license distribution, neighborhood event permits, and local transportation initiatives, among other topics. Community Boards are pivotal in shaping their districts and they work to enhance and preserve the character of their neighborhoods.

Interested applicants may apply online or print and complete a paper application, at manhattanbp.nyc.gov/CBapply (Note: you should read the PDF and prepare your answers in advance, since the online application must be completed in one sitting). Applications must be submitted (or postmarked) before 5:00pm on Friday, February 9, 2018. This is a wonderful opportunity to give back to and support your communities in this new year!
