Community boards of the Bronx[1] are New York City community boards in the borough of the Bronx, which are the appointed advisory groups of the community districts that advise on land use and zoning, participate in the city budget process, and address service delivery in their district.[2]

Community boards are each composed of up to 50 volunteer members appointed by the Bronx borough president, half from nominations by City Council members representing the community district (i.e., whose council districts cover part of the community district).[3][4] Additionally, all City Council members representing the community district are non-voting, ex officio board members.[4]

The Bronx Borough Board is composed of the borough president, New York City Council members whose districts are part of the borough, and the chairperson of each community board in the Bronx.[5][6][7]
