Tonight: Learn How to Infiltrate Your Community Board
If you live in Manhattan and you've been represented by a community board that seems more concerned with parking spots than creating safe streets and great public spaces, you may want to head uptown tonight. Borough President Scott Stringer's office is putting on an event for prospective community board members. If you decide to join, the Beep is accepting applications for a few more days. The deadline is this Friday.
One person's perspective can make a big difference in community board decisions. After a few fresh faces joined Manhattan CB 7 and CB 8, each board defied expectations last fall by passing resolutions in favor of protected bike infrastructure.
Final Community Board Information Session:
Monday, January 11th, 6:30 -- 8:00 p.m.
Community Board 12, 711 West 168th Street
