Community Board 11 serves Queens residents in Auburndale, Bayside, Douglaston, East Flushing, Hollis Hills, Little Neck and Oakland Gardens.
“I understand that the COVID-19 pandemic has created unusual and complex problems and considerations for many residents of our area, and open communication between our government and our residents has never been more important. We are here to help you deal with those issues,” said Budabin.
The chair added that since the onset of the pandemic, the Board 11 district office was the first in the borough to implement a policy of working from home in conjunction with the City’s social distancing efforts.
“Our amazing staff has been working remotely during that time to bring personal protection equipment donations to St. Mary’s Hospital for Children in Bayside, provide regular updates to residents via email, and host our meetings digitally via Zoom,” he said.
The meeting is scheduled for Monday, April 6 at 7:30 p.m. and those interested in registering to speak during the public participation portion of the meeting can do so by calling the community board at 718-225-1054 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
