Community Board to hold monthly meeting at Diversity Plaza Thursday


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.

Met Council leader warns of ‘catastrophe’ for low-income families in Queens due to lack of pandemic-era federal food aid

Mar. 28, 2023 By Bill Parry

As an accomplished legislator, law professor and media personality with broad experience in government and not-for-profit organizations, Met Council CEO and executive director David Greenfield is well aware of the power of words. With Passover arriving on Wednesday, April 5, and with federal pandemic food assistance no longer available to low-income families in Queens, the leader of the nation’s largest Jewish charity organization warned of a coming “catastrophe” and called for the city to step up to provide $13 million in emergency funding for pantries to help New Yorkers facing food insecurity and elevated costs of living in the borough.

Pair of Queens community organizations will activate public spaces to celebrate local cultures

Two Queens community organizations are among an inaugural cohort of five groups citywide that will lead new projects to celebrate local cultures and histories in public spaces under a new initiative called The Local Center in a partnership between Urban Design Forum and the Association for Neighborhood & Housing Development (ANHD).

At a time when New York is grappling with an uneven pandemic recovery and as displacement looms large for communities and neighborhoods across the five boroughs, this new endeavor will convene interdisciplinary teams to transform and activate the shared spaces where cultural traditions flourish — and importantly, center the community visions and leadership that is too often left out of the process.
