CB14 Budget Recommendations FY2018
By October 25, 2016, Community Boards are required to prepare and submit recommendations for physical improvement projects funded by the City’s Capital Budget or the Community Development program. The boards are also required to submit recommendations for operational programs funded by the City’s Expense budget. These recommendations are considered by the Mayor and by City agencies for inclusion in the Fiscal Year 2018 budget. The members of the City Council review and consider the board’s priorities and vote on the City budget.
Prior to the submission of these recommendations to the Mayor, City Council and City Planning Commission, Community Boards are required to conduct a public hearing on their proposed recommendations. Based on the public hearings held on both September 8th and October 6th, the board will formulate and submit its recommendations.
Community Boards must limit their budget requests to their 40 most critical Capital improvements and 25 top Expense program proposals. A brief description of the recommendations prepared by Brooklyn Community Board 14 is provided below and in the attached report. These recommendations were developed as a result of observation of physical and service problems within Community District 14; analysis of service delivery requests received by the board’s district office; formal local and borough consultation meetings with City agencies, and recommendations submitted by neighborhood and civic groups throughout the Flatbush/Midwood/Kensington communities.
