COMMUNITY BOARD 12 COMMUTES TO KENSINGTON THIS MONTH

UPDATE: The monthly meeting of the 66th Precinct Community Council was scheduled for Thursday, March 21st, in Borough Park. The monthly meeting of the Albemarle Neighborhood Association was scheduled for that same night in Kensington.

But Kensington residents won't have to choose between the two meetings: ANA has invited the 66th Precinct Community Council to meet at ANA's meeting.

THE ALBEMARLE NEIGHBORHOOD ASSOCIATION
WELCOMES COMMUNITY BOARD 12
TO KENSINGTON 

on
Thursday, March 21, 2013, from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. 

at
University Place
4th Floor Student Center
385 McDonald Avenue
across the street from Foodtown

 ******************************************************

At its first community meeting of 2013, the Albemarle Neighborhood Association (ANA) will host Community Board 12's monthly public meeting.

All residents of Kensington are invited to attend and let the community board know what the neighborhood's needs are. The beginning of each board meeting is always set aside for the public to bring issues to the board's attention. Each person is given three minutes to speak.

Anyone who would like to participate in this public forum should sign the speaker's sheet before the meeting starts. The speaker's sheet is on a different piece of paper than the attendance sheet. 

The community board serves as a link between the neighborhood and the city's agencies. Through its committees, it deals with


  • street and sidewalk conditions,
  • dangerous intersections, 
  • sanitation,
  • crime,
  • fire hazards,
  • social services,
  • housing,
  • parks,
  • recreational and cultural programs and services, 
  • consumer rights,
  • libraries,
  • transportation safety for pedestrians, bicyclists, and motorists, and
  • youth and community development programs.

Community Board 12 hasn't met in Kensington since May 2011. The number of people that attended that meeting was impressive--far greater than the number of people at the meetings in Borough Park, which is the board's usual meeting place.

Let's let our community board know that we're interested in our neighborhood and its well-being and that we'd love to have them meet here more often.
