Every neighborhood in New York City is represented by an all-volunteer community board, which serves as the neighborhood's liaison to city agencies. Board members are appointed by the neighborhood's city councilperson and the borough president.
The goal of a community board is to help resolve issues involving pedestrian safety, traffic congestion, housing, land use and zoning, outdoor lighting, potholes, sanitation, libraries, crime, police presence, social services, rodents, trash collection, public litter baskets, street and sidewalk conditions, etc.
Community Board 12's committees are
Planning, Zoning Variances and City Map
Education, Library, Cultural Affairs
Sanitation & Environmental Protection
Fire, Safety & Police
Health & Social Services
Housing & Buildings
