Community Board 12 now publishes a newsletter, "The Boardroom: Brooklyn Community Board 12." The monthly newsletter will contain facts about the borough, the board, and the community. 

The first issue of the newsletter is available today; to read it, click on the Photos tab on the Board's Facebook page.

To be added to the newsletter mailing list, contact the board office by phone at (718) 851-0800 or by e-mail at bkcb12 @ 

A copy of the newsletter will be posted on CB 12's website, when possible, along with a form so that people can sign up for the mailing list. Printed copies of the newsletter will also be available in their office and at board meetings.

If you have suggestions for further issues, pass them along to the board.

Community Board 12 represents Kensington, Dahill, Borough Park, and Midwood.
