Community Board 13 must serve the neighborhoods of Brighton Beach, Coney Island, Sea Gate, and Gravesend in the most effective manner possible. There are many issues that confront the citizenry and businesses of these areas on a daily basis. As a result, C.B. 13 utilizes a Committee format, with all of its members serving on at least one committee. Materials related to each of these following committees must be dealt with in the most comprehensive and in-depth methods. All of the committee meetings are open to the public. Invited guests discuss the pertinent matters facing C.B. 13. Reports are then given back to the General Board later the same month. Here, then, is the breakdown of committee responsibilities for Community Board 13.
