The Manhattan Borough President’s office is now accepting applications for Community Board membership. New Yorkers living, working, or studying in one of Manhattan’s 12 Community Board districts are encouraged to apply. Community Boards are the most grass roots form of local government, each composed of 50 volunteer members serving staggered two-year terms. The Boards are pivotal in shaping their communities and they work to enhance and preserve the character of their neighborhoods. Apply online at manhattanbp.nyc.gov/CBapply.
