Manhattan Community Board Six
Manhattan Community Board Six (CB6) is a government agency of the City of New York. CB6 serves an advisory role in reviewing land use and zoning matters, the city budget, municipal service delivery, liquor licenses, and other matters in Manhattan Community District Six (CD6), an area on the east side of Manhattan from 14th to 59th Streets, from the East River to Lexington Avenue, and extending west to Madison Avenue between 34th and 40th Streets. CB6 works closely with city agencies, elected officials, businesses, community groups, and community residents to ensure safety and quality of life for all who live, work, and visit the district. CB6 accomplishes this work through a volunteer board consisting of 50 appointed members who live or work in CD6. As CB6 must address a multitude of disparate issues, its work is delegated to its various committees, which each address specific topics of community concern. The work of the committees is taken up at a monthly meeting of the full board, where the entire board votes on the committees’ recommendations. The CB6 District Office, headed by the District Manager, assists the 50-member board in its duties and acts as the community’s and CB6’s liaison to the city government.
