Get Involved

Community Board 17 Needs You!

You don’t need to be a Board member to get involved:

Speak at Community Board & Committee Meetings

A section of every general Community Board meeting is set aside for the board to hear from the public. When you enter the meeting room, there will be a sign-in sheet labeled “Community Session” where anyone can sign in to speak for up to 3 minutes. The Chairperson will acknowledge speakers in the order they sign in.

No pre-registration is necessary.

Attend Community Board & Committee Meetings

We encourage the public to attend the Community Board’s various Public Hearings, committee meetings, informational sessions, and special events to participate actively in the items before the Community Board at the grassroots level.

All meetings of the Community Board are open to the public and are posted on our online Calendar.

General Board meetings are available to view on our YouTube Channel.
