Borough President Adolfo Carrion is inviting Bronx residents to make a difference in their community by joining their local Community Board. The Office of The Bronx Borough President will accept applications for all 12 Community Boards from city residents who live or have professional or other significant interests in the Bronx.
“Participation on local Community Boards can provide Bronx residents with a forum to share their expertise and talents with their community,” states Carrion. “It is important that residents are engaged in the issues that affect communities including budget, land use and service delivery issues.”
Applications are available at the Borough President’s Community Board office at (718) 590-3914 or at your local community board office. Interested applicants may also get forms online at bronxboropres.nyc.gov.
The deadline for submission of applications is February 2, 2009.
Editor's Note: It is a good idea to join local community boards. These boards make decisions every day that can have an impact in your quality of life. Bronx Latinos please take advantage of this opportunity.
