There are 59 Community Boards across NYC. 12 in Manhattan, 18 in Brooklyn, 12 in the Bronx, 14 in Queens and 3 in Staten Island.
Community Boards are the most accessible component of NYC city government and are the main advocate of their community's residents. Why not arm these volunteers with hyperlocalized actionable information to make them more effective advocates?
And not just advocates. With proper training, Community Board members can better harness local volunteer resources to become effective partners of the City.
