Reporting Storm Damage

Posted on: August 3, 2020

Please report flooding, downed branches and other storm-related concerns to 311 and to CB14 by calling or emailing your 311 service request number so that we can help track and follow up as needed. The clean-up from Tropical Storm Isaias will delay the collection of debris from previous storms but CB14 will do our best to work with the Parks Department to ensure that all reported locations are on their list. We have been very fortunate in CB14 that the Department of Sanitation-BK14 has pitched in with extra assistance to help collect storm debris throughout the district.  The City has assembled a Downed Tree Task Force with several agencies to assist in this effort.  Of course, should any emergency arise, call 911. Stay safe and well.

Community Safety & Fireworks Complaints

Posted on: June 24, 2020

There have been an unprecedented number of reports of fireworks in our community over the past weeks.  Remember, fireworks are illegal and dangerous.  In addition, and in the words of one of our community residents, “They wake up babies, terrify dogs, trigger those with PTSD, and keep everyone in the neighborhood from being well-rested and healthy during this pandemic – including many essential workers who live here. They have also lit fires and put buildings and people in danger.” Please call 311, 911 or the FDNY Fireworks Enforcement Unit at 718-722-3600 to report fireworks in your neighborhood.

Census 2020 – Get Counted Brooklyn!

Posted on: April 18, 2020

Get counted today! In 2010, only 62% of New Yorkers filled out their Census forms. As a result, New York City has been losing out on funds for schools, roads, hospitals, and other essential services for the past decade. April 1st was Census Day, but as mid-July, only 50.2% of Brooklyn residents have responded to the 2020 Census! We need to get to 100%. Now, more than ever, it is so vital for every Brooklyn resident to be counted so that our Borough gets the federal support and resources we need to recover from Covid-19 and to thrive in the future! Visit or call 844-330-2020 to get counted. Online responses can be submitted in English as well as 12 other languages. Let’s make sure everyone does their part to Make Brooklyn Count 100%!
