Responsibilities of Directors
Community boards have a variety of responsibilities, including but not limited to:
- Dealing with land use and zoning issues. Community Boards have an important advisory role and must be consulted on the placement of most municipal facilities in the community. Applications for a change in or variance from the zoning resolution must come before the board for review, and the board’s position is considered in the final determination.
- Assessing the needs of their own neighbourhoods. Community Boards assess the needs of their community members and meet with City representatives to make recommendations in the City’s development process.
- Addressing other community concerns. Any issue that affects part or all of a community, from a traffic problem to deteriorating housing, is a proper concern of community boards.
- Improving the quality of life in the community by providing for programs and services.
It is important to note that while community boards serve as advocates for their neighbourhood, they do not have the ability to order any City agency or official to perform any task. Despite this limitation, boards are usually successful in resolving the problems they address.
