Queens borough president releases community board demographics report


When he launched his “common-sense” reforms of the 14 community boards in April, Queens Borough President Donovan Richards wanted the panels to become younger, become more diverse and include more women to better reflect the neighborhoods they serve.

On Thursday, July 1, his office released a new report providing both an overview of Queens community board demographics as of June 2020 and a detailed, multi-layered breakdown of this year’s historically diverse class of community board appointees.
