If you haven’t sent in your community board application yet, don’t fret!
Acting Borough President Sharon Lee has extended the deadline for qualified and civic-minded applicants to Friday, March 13.
That means you’ll have six additional weeks from the original January 31 deadline to submit completed, signed and notarized applications to the BP’s office.
“The extension is to ensure that the pool of applicants is as robust as possible,” Lee said.
The community board application can be found online here.
There are 14 community boards in Queens. The boards hold hearings and issue recommendations on the city budget, municipal service delivery, land use and other matters that impact the community.
The borough president appoints all of the members, but the local City Council representative nominates half of the appointments.
Each member serves a two-year term.
For this upcoming round of appointments, the two-year term begins on April 1, 2020.
