Today, Manhattan Borough President Gale A. Brewer announced this year’s slate of appointments to Manhattan’s 12 Community Boards. The 328 appointments include 87 new members, more than a quarter of the appointments.
“Community Board members sit across the table from the most powerful real estate interests and city and state officials, negotiating for the public and shaping the future of their neighborhoods,” said Manhattan Borough President Gale A. Brewer. “We had more than a thousand applications this year, the most we’ve ever had. While that made the job of selecting members tougher than it’s ever been, I’m excited that so many Manhattanites want to be civically involved.”
Applications for Community Board membership increased by 31 percent in 2017.
Today’s announcement marks the conclusion of the 2017 appointment process, which saw 1,030 applicants for Manhattan Community Board seats. Applications for Community Board membership increased by 31 percent in 2017.
