Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. is once again inviting Bronx residents to make a difference in their community by applying to join their local Community Board.

The Office of The Bronx Borough President will be accepting applications for all 12 Bronx Community Boards from city residents who reside, work or have professional or other significant interests in the borough.

“Participation on local Community Boards can provide Bronx residents with a forum to share with their community their expertise and talents,” stated Borough President Diaz.

“There are great things happening in The Bronx that involve the participation of community boards. It is important that community residents participate in the decisions that are building and revitalizing our borough, and our community boards are a great place to do so."

In addition, Borough President Diaz is encouraging young people ages 16 and 17 to apply for community board membership, as his office is working to ensure that there is a least one youth member per community board.

“I believe that the earlier young people become engaged in community affairs and interact with government officials and agencies, the better they will understand government and become active leaders in their communities," said Borough President Diaz. "It is important to hear the voices of our youth when planning for our neighborhoods."

Applications are available on the Borough Presidents website - bronxboropres.nyc.gov,  the Community Board office at (718) 590-3913 or at your local community board office. The deadline for submission of applications for the next round of appointments is February 5, 2021.
