Join A Community Board 6 Committee And Get Involved In Your Neighborhood

Concerned about local land use and zoning matters? Local infrastructure needs? Municipal service delivery or other neighborhood issues?
If you live in Carroll Gardens, Red Hood, Gowanus, Park Slope or Cobble Hill and would like to get more involved in your neighborhood, you may want to join one of Community Board 6's committees.
It may be the first step towards you becoming a full board member.

Below is all pertinent information from Craig Hammerman, Community Board 6's manager:

For those of you who are moved enoughto want to volunteer, now is the time of year that Brooklyn CB6 invites interested members of the public to apply to join one of our standing committees for our upcoming annual session. Individuals who wish to serve on a committee can download the application form, or request a form from our district office, and return it to us by June 21st. Appointments are for a one-year term beginning September 1st. Notification letters are sent out in August.

Committees that are open for public membership include:
* Economic/Waterfront/Community Development & Housing
* Environmental Protection/Permits & Licenses
* Landmarks/Land Use
* Parks/Recreation/Cultural Affairs
* Transportation/Public Safety
* Youth/Human Services/Education

Please do not apply to join a committee if you anticipate any possible scheduling conflicts! And if you're not sure if you're ready to make the commitment, all of our committee meetings are open to the public where we encourage local members of the community to attend and participate.

To learn more about what our committees do, and find out when they meet (they all meet on regular fixed nights), please visit the Committees section of our website.
