Community Board 3 covers Manhattan’s Lower East Side, including the East
Village, and historic Chinatown. It runs from 14th street to the
Brooklyn Bridge and from the East River to Bowery, and to Baxter below Canal.
Our 50-member volunteer board, supported by a staff of four, has an advisory
role in the City’s land use review process, the annual budget, and the delivery
of municipal services. The Board is an active participant in land use
dispositions and local planning activities as the local government structure
for participation in decision making for the community.
