Bronx Community Board 11 - Board Role and Structure

Board Role and Structure

As with all community boards in NYC, CB11 consists of 50 volunteers who are appointed by the respective Borough President, although at least one half of the board’s members are selected from nominees of the district's respective Council Members. Comprising several committees, CB11 is headed by an executive committee, which consists of a Chair, First Vice Chair, Second Vice Chair, Treasurer, and Secretary. The board’s current and longstanding Chair is Dominic Castore. The other committees consist of geographical committees, a Youth and Education committee, and a Land Use/Zoning committee. The geographical committees are as follows: Bronx Park East/Olinville, Indian Village/Westchester Heights, Morris Park/Pelham Parkway/Van Nest, and Pelham Gardens. All committees are headed by a Chair and, in some cases, a Co-Chair.

The Board plays an important advisory role in land use and rezoning matters. It is responsible for identifying community needs as part of the City's budget process and working with government agencies to coordinate and improve the delivery of municipal services. The Board also handles special projects, including organizing and working with tenants', homeowners' and merchants' associations, developing graffiti removal, other cleanup projects, and other matters relating to the community's general welfare. Full board meetings, which are open to the public, are usually held on the fourth Thursday of the month.

Famous quotes containing the words structure, board and/or role:

    Why does philosophy use concepts and why does faith use symbols if both try to express the same ultimate? The answer, of course, is that the relation to the ultimate is not the same in each case. The philosophical relation is in principle a detached description of the basic structure in which the ultimate manifests itself. The relation of faith is in principle an involved expression of concern about the meaning of the ultimate for the faithful.
    Paul Tillich (1886–1965)

    Watteau is no less an artist for having painted a fascia board while Sainsbury’s is no less effective a business for producing advertisements which entertain and educate instead of condescending and exploiting.
    Stephen Bayley (b. 1951)

    Language makes it possible for a child to incorporate his parents’ verbal prohibitions, to make them part of himself....We don’t speak of a conscience yet in the child who is just acquiring language, but we can see very clearly how language plays an indispensable role in the formation of conscience. In fact, the moral achievement of man, the whole complex of factors that go into the organization of conscience is very largely based upon language.
    Selma H. Fraiberg (20th century)
