Community Boards

Community boards are local representative bodies. There are 18 community boards in Brooklyn and each one consists of up to 50 non-salaried members appointed by the Borough President, half of whom are nominated by their district’s City Council members. Members of the community board must reside, work, or have some other significant interest in the community.

Each community board employs a District Manager who establishes an office, hires staff, and implements procedures to improve the delivery of City services to the district. While the main responsibility of the board office is to receive complaints from community residents, they also maintain other duties, such as processing permits for block parties and street fairs. Many boards choose to provide additional services and manage special projects that cater to specific community needs, including organizing tenants associations, coordinating neighborhood cleanup programs, and more.
