Community Boards of Brooklyn are local government bodies in the New York City borough of Brooklyn, which are appointed by the Borough President. Each of the 18 Community Boards in Brooklyn consists of 50 non-paid members. They do not have any administrative rights, but they may present requests, regarding community needs, to City Administration. There is no guarantee that the request will be approved by City, but in practice the most of reasonable problems have been resolved.
