Manhattan Community Board 1 - Remote Meetings

The emergency declarations by the Mayor of New York City and the Governor of New York State require community boards across the city to radically alter the manner in which they conduct meetings. The guidance for all New Yorkers to engage in social distancing strategies to protect themselves and their neighbors makes in-person meetings all but impossible to conduct. Therefore, the Governor has waived certain provisions of the Open Meetings Law to allow for remote meetings to take place. This is an unprecedented state of affairs for community boards and we are working to create a similar way to engage in a virtual space. This page serves as a landing site for information on how to attend remotely and submit public comment.
