The February Committee Meetings of Manhattan Community Board 4 (CB4) | To attend a full board meeting of Manhattan Community Board 4 (CB4) is to burrow into the marrow of community concerns such as affordable housing, public parks projects, landmarking efforts, and liquor license renewals. But before the full board sinks their choppers into such meaty matters, CB4’s eight individual committees are the first stop in the process. The letters they generate—submitted for a vote when the full board meets on the first Wednesday of the month—articulate CB4’s approval, disapproval, or recommended actions regarding a particular topic. The public is invited to attend, and speak up, at these monthly committee meetings.
