From the Chair

Dear Community Resident:

Our District Manager and her staff are experts at helping you deal with City bureaucracy when you have a problem with municipal services, when you need help or when you have an idea for improvement for your neighborhood!

They work with me and the other volunteer members of the community board to hold committee meetings and public hearings, which give you and your neighbors a chance to weigh in on proposals to enlarge houses, build new community facilities, establish group homes for the developmentally disabled, improve commercial areas, and make other land use changes. These hearings are intended to give you all the information you need to formulate a position and publicly express any concerns you may have. We always convey those concerns to the responsible agency.

Even though our official role is advisory, we can and do affect how things turn out — especially when we have your support.

Please take the time to examine our monthly meeting calendar and attend any committee meetings of interest. Our board’s tradition is to treat you as a full participant in committee discussions and we seek and highly value your input. Once you become familiar with the workings of our Board, if you are interested in becoming an appointed member, please visit the Borough President’s website, submit a membership application and let your City Council member know of your interest.

We look forward to working with you toward an ever better community.

Ed Powell
Brooklyn Community Board 14
