Now's the Time to Apply for Community Board

Interested in joining your local community board?

Applications to serve are now being accepted by Manhattan Borough President Gale Brewer’s office until Feb. 8, 2019. "Virtually every truly successful community planning initiative, land use negotiation, and infrastructure investment has one thing in common: meaningful involvement from local community board members,” Brewer said in a statement.

Board members are appointed to two-year terms by the Manhattan Borough President, with half selected solely by the Borough President and half nominated by the City Council members representing each Community Board district.

The online application form can be accessed by clicking here. Applications must be complete and submitted by 5:00 pm on Friday, February 8, 2019. (A PDF version  is also available for download and can be mailed to the Borough President’s Office or dropped off in person; printed applications must be postmarked by February 8.)

Selected applicants will be announced in April.
