Community Board to hold monthly meeting at Diversity Plaza Thursday

Plazameeting

June 17, 2015 By Michael Florio

Community Board 3 will be hosting its June meeting at Diversity Plaza Thursday.

This will be the third straight year that the board has held its meeting at the well-known venue. It will begin at 7 pm.

The outdoor meeting provides the public with a window into the workings of the board as well as the individuals who are making the decisions on behalf or residents, according to elected officials.

The event is held at plaza since it is a visible area that draws a lot of residents, particularly those going to and from the train.

Many of these people do not even know what a community board is, or what they do, and will have the opportunity to conveniently watch the process in action.

Both of the previous meetings drew a large audience.

Councilman Daniel Dromm and 115th Precinct Captain Brian Hennessy are both scheduled to speak tomorrow, as well as representatives from the Louis Armstrong House Museum and Neighborhood Housing Service.
