Community Board No. 2, Manhattan, New York City




Committees & Task Forces

 

Community Board 2 has eleven standing committees and several special committees. The calendar page shows the dates, locations and agendas of monthly meetings.  Input is regularly sought and encouraged at committee hearings and the full board's monthly meetings.  On complex issues, the board chair may assign an issue to more than one committee.

Most committees take off the month of August. Each committee reviews all requirements, facts, testimony and supporting documentation, and summarizes them in a resolution that is then presented for final approval at the monthly full board meeting. The final resolution becomes an official advisory document that is then passed on to the appropriate agency or agencies.

Each standing committee is composed of board and public members.  Board members are appointed by the Manhattan Borough President, half of whom are recommended by local City Council members. Public members are appointed by the board chair upon application. The names and titles of the committee members are listed below.
