Want To Have A Voice In Your Community? Consider Applying To Community Board 6

Perhaps one of your New Years resolutions was to get more involved in the Community? If so, you may consider applying to our local Community Board 6, which represents Carroll Gardens, Red Hood, Gowanus, Park Slope or Cobble Hill.  The application deadline is February 15, 2015.  You can download the application right here.   

From CB6:
Now is the time of year to apply for community board membership. Community boards are not self-appointing bodies. Our Board Members are all appointed by the Borough President, half of them at the recommendation of a local City Council Member. They serve voluntary, 2-year staggered terms.
Thanks to recent legislative changes, beginning with this cycle of appointments 16- and 17-year-olds may now apply to become a member. Aspiring activists, organizers, political science and urban planning majors can get an early start with real-life experience.

Becoming a member is a serious responsibility that requires a commitment of time, interest and energy. When you're ready to make that big step and apply for membership you can call the Borough President's Office at (718) 802-3700, visit their website, or contact your local Council Member [Brad Lander at 718-499-1090

CB 6
250 Baltic Street,
Brooklyn, NY 11201
Phone: 718.643.3027
Fax: 718.624.8410

If your time is limited, you may want to consider joining one of Community Board 6's committees.
