NATURE & PURPOSE OF SERVICE SITE:
Community Board 5, Queens works to improve the Ridgewood, Maspeth, Middle Village and Glendale communities, which are part of Community District 5, Queens. Within our borders, we also have a small portion of Woodside and Rego Park. There are currently 43 members of our Board. The members of the Board are all volunteers. There is a small paid staff consisting of a District Manager, two Community Associates, and a Community Assistant.
Each Board Member is asked to serve on at least two committees of the Board. Each committee is responsible for understanding and working towards improving services, or making recommendations for improvement in such areas as Transportation, Public Transit, Land Use, Parks, Sanitation, Health, Education, the Environment, Housing, Libraries, Public Safety, and Youth Services.
Community Board 5, Queens conducts public hearings related to the city budget, zoning issues, capital projects, and other important matters.
