About Bronx CB 5

Community District 5 in the Bronx has existed in its current form since 1975, although the history of this section of the Bronx extends back to the 1800s when the area was first developed. Community Board 5, like all community boards within NYC, plays an important advisory role in dealing with land use, zoning matters, the City budget, municipal service delivery and many other matters relating to their communities' welfare.
