Community Boards have an important advisory role in land use and zoning matters, City budget, municipal service delivery and many other matters. Please contact us with any community concerns.

The New York State legislature has suspended the in-person provision of the Open Meeting law until Jan 15.  Therefore CB 3 meetings will resume as teleconference meetings on Zoom.

All September meetings will now be on Zoom only.
