Borough President Melinda Katz announced Monday that she has extended the application deadline for Queens residents to join one of the borough’s 14 community boards.

The application deadline to be a new or returning member is now Friday, Feb. 7. An application for community board membership can be found on Katz’s website at

“Community boards hold hearings on and issue recommendations regarding land use and zoning matters, the city budget, municipal service delivery and many other community-related issues,” Katz said. “They play a significant role in helping city government address the needs of its residents, so I encourage all civic-minded Queens residents to consider applying for community board membership.”

“Service on a community board is a great way to contribute to the well-being and quality of life of your neighborhood,” she said.

Applicants approved as a member of a board will serve two-year terms that begin April 1. Each board is responsible for representing the interests of a particular geographic area of Queens.
