QUEENS BOROUGH BOARD

The Borough Board is chaired by the Borough President under the New York City Charter and comprised of the borough’s City Council members and the chairperson of each Community Board in the borough. The Board focuses on issues dealing with land use, development, public policy, budget, and other important matters with potential borough-wide implications. The Board hears presentations from City officials and others and, as part of the land use review process, is sometimes called upon to vote on land use questions that impact more than one Community Board District.

Queens’ 14 community boards are comprised of up to 50
volunteer, unsalaried members serving staggered two-year terms. All Queens community board members are appointed by the Queens Borough President, pursuant to the City Charter, with half of the appointments being nominated by the City Councilmembers representing their respective Community Districts.

Community Boards play an important advisory role in considering land use and zoning matters in their respective districts. Each Board holds monthly full membership meetings. The Boards also hold hearings and issue recommendations about the City budget, municipal service delivery and numerous other matters that impact their communities.
