There are 59 Community Boards throughout the city, with 12 located in the Borough of Manhattan. Each oard consists of up to 50 unsalaried members, appointed by the Borough President, with half nominated by the City Council Members who represent the community district. Board members are selected by the Borough President from among active and involved people in each community. Board members must reside, work or have some other significant interest in the community.
