318 Community Board Members Begin New Term

A total of 318 people who were recently appointed by Queens Borough President Melinda Katz to serve on one of the borough’s 14 Community Boards were sworn-in to their unpaid, volunteer posts on June 22nd. The 318 members were appointed to serve two-year terms on their respective Community Boards, which play an important advisory role in considering land use and zoning matters. Community Boards also contribute to the dialogue about the city budget, municipal service delivery and many other matters that impact their communities. The appointees include 56 first-time Community Board members and 262 members who have previously served. Borough President Katz has made a concerted effort to strike a better balance of experiences, new voices and proportional representation among and within the Boards. To date, 27 percent of Queens Community Board members were first-time appointees under Katz since 2014.
