Gathering Information

Community Boards rely on information from the public. More engagement helps Boards know what's going on.

Community Boards need information from residents and businesses in the community in order to prioritize their activities and maintain a clear picture of needs and wants. Boards use the information they gather to be useful in various ways about neighborhood issues. They also use this information for formal processes like the District Needs Statement.
