The Board

Community Boards afford the citizenry the opportunity to have their voices heard. This input is helpful in making decisions about how best to use city resources, including land and tax dollars. Over the years, modifications to the City Charter have given Community Boards a formal role in decisions on land use, preparation of capital and expense budgets, and monitoring service delivery.
