Right now, there’s no consistent process for applying to community boards across the city. Different Boroughs have different processes and annual deadlines. Unfortunately, some are more transparent and easy to navigate than others. They tend to involve fun steps like interacting with clunky websites, paper forms and tracking down a notary. (We all have friends who happen to be notaries, right?)

Proposal #3 requires Borough Presidents to have a straightforward public process for applications. They will be required to seek out diverse candidates. And they will have to produce a public report each year about the Community Board membership and recruitment in their borough.

Pretty basic, right?
