Manhattan’s new borough president, Gale Brewer, is getting the word out about community board applications, which are due on February 1. The annual process was begun by her predecessor, Scott Stringer, in December (he’s now the city’s comptroller). Brewer will make appointments, in consultation with local City Council members, to the 12 Manhattan boards, including Community Board 3.
“I served on my Community Board, and I recommend the experience to anyone who cares about addressing local issues, improving the quality of life in our neighborhoods, and making a real difference in the community,” Brewer said in a press release. “If you haven’t already, get to know your Community Board by attending a meeting. Participation is the foundation of our democracy.”
