The Manhattan Borough President’s office is currently accepting applications for community board membership! Community boards are charged with representing community interests on crucial issues of development, land use, zoning, and city service delivery. Serving on a board is an incredible opportunity to make changes in your community, advise your elected officials on the issues you care about, and be at the forefront of sound community-based planning decisions.
Please join Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer for an information meeting to learn about the roles and responsibilities of community board members.
Two community board information sessions will be held:
Thursday, Dec. 17th, 6:30 – 8:00 pm, 163 West 125th Street, Room 8A
Monday, Jan. 11th, 6:30 – 8:00 pm, 711 West 168th Street
To RSVP for an information session, please call (212) 669-4374 or email RSVP@manhattanbp.org and specify which session you plan to attend.
