Residents who want to know what’s really going on in Bay Ridge should attend a Community Board 10 meeting, where elected officials, business leaders, and civic activists talk about how to make the neighborhood a better place to live and work.
The board is one of 59 in New York City that serves as unpaid advisors to City Hall. There is a community board for each neighborhood in the city.
Community Board 10 actually serves two neighborhoods – Bay Ridge and Dyker Heights.
These people know what’s going on in every corner of the neighborhood!
The job of a community board is to ensure that local residents receive their fair share of city services and to serve as spokespeople for residents when it comes to municipal budget matters.
Community Board 10 meets once a month, usually on the third Monday of the month. The next meeting will take place on Monday, March 19, at Norwegian Christian Home, 1250 67th St., at 7:15 p.m.
For more information, call the board’s office at 718-745-6827.
