CB12 Is Getting A New (Digital) Home

| No Comments
At tonight's Community Board 12 general meeting Manny Velazquez, chair of the board, announced that the current website (which has been down for a while) is going to be replaced by a site hosted and run by New York City's Department of Information Technology & Telecommunications (DOITT). Mr. Velazquez described the new website as being "very modern and user friendly." He has been monitoring work on the website, and sounded very enthusiastic about its progress. Expected to launch within a month or so, the new site may also give board members a chance to converse with each other privately in a members section, which will presumably allow them to instantly communicate and update each other on various board activities and information. The full nature of the board members section was unclear, but a member of CB12 raised the issue with Mr. Velazquez during the meeting, and he confirmed that this was in the works.

The previous website had a calender of upcoming meetings and archived the monthly meeting minutes from each committee so it appears the new digital hub for CB12 will include that and much more.

We'll be keeping you updated on the status of the site, until then here is an example of a community board website (Staten Island CB1) currently being hosted by the DOITT.
