Community Board 17 is a unique community due to the fact of its size, location, population and community needs. Community Board #17 has a host of public facilities, public spaces, businesses, service providers and other amenities not found in many other communities located throughout the metropolitan area.

Community Board 17 like all the community boards within NYC, plays a very important advisory role in dealing with land use and zoning matters, the City budget, municipal service delivery and many other matters relating to their communities’ welfare.

The Board is comprised of 50 unsalaried members, appointed by the Borough President in consultation with the New York City Council members who represents part of the Board district.

Any person with a residence, business, professional or other significant interest in Community District, in a given area is eligible for appointment to the Community Board serving that area.

Community Board 17 consists of a full-time District Manager with three staff members that receive and work to resolve residents’ service delivery problems.
