Welcome to your Community Board! From more affordable housing to more schools, parks, hospitals, safe transportation, less noise, better business balance, and preserving the diversity of our neighborhood character, the 50 members of Community Board 4 volunteer to represent the district's residents, institutions, non profit and businesses' common interests to City agencies and bring solutions to our district. The City Charter ascribes to Community Boards an important advisory role in dealing with land use planning and zoning matters, the City budget and the delivery of City services in our district.

If you have any problems in your neighborhood, please feel free to contact us. Sign up on the right to be notified of new projects and City decisions that may affect your life in the near future.
