Bronx Community Board 8

    Community Boards play an important role in improving the quality of life for all New Yorkers. Bronx Community Board 8 is here to help you and the community.

Welcome to
Bronx Community Board 8


Welcome to Bronx Community Board 8’s website!

The members of Bronx Community Board 8 are volunteers who strive to represent the interests and needs of our district's residents, institutions, businesses in Fieldston, Kingsbridge, Kingsbridge Heights, Marble Hill, Riverdale, Spuyten Duyvil, and Van Cortlandt Village.

We play an important advisory role, mandated by the New York City Charter, that impacts land use planning and zoning matters, city budget, municipal service delivery, and many other quality of life issues for those who live and work in our district.

By hosting regular committee and board meetings open to the public, BX CB-8 acts as your representative for communicating events, addressing local concerns to make city services accessible and responsive, and processing municipal and state applications of various sorts.

Please stay connected and always feel free to contact us with your community concerns.

Statement of Bronx Community Board 8
Racism and Hate Have No Place in Our Community

Bronx Community Board 8 represents the interconnectedness of Black and White Americans, as well as Caribbean, Hispanic, Asian, Latinx, Jewish, LGBTQIA, Indigenous, disabled, Muslim, and all people of color.

We affirm that we are proud of our diversity, and stand together against all forms of hate, division, and violence that threaten lives, our sense of security, our union and our system of democracy.
