Today the Office of Manhattan Borough President Gale A. Brewer extended the deadline for New Yorkers to apply for seats on Manhattan’s 12 Community Boards by a week. Applications will now be due Friday, February 10, 2017 instead of today, February 3rd, 2017. They encourage all eligible New Yorkers living, working, or studying in the borough of Manhattan to take advantage of the extra time and submit an application.
The presidential election shook a lot of New Yorkers, but it’s also awakened an urgent interest in civic involvement. If you want to be more involved in your community, take advantage of this extra week and apply.
