The 50 members of Community Board 2 are appointed by Borough President Eric L. Adams, half in consultation with the City Council members whose districts overlap with the community district. Council Member Stephen Levin, representing the 33rd Council District, recommends 11 members to the Borough President and Council Member Laurie Cumbo, serving the 35th Council District, recommends 14. The membership is divided into two classes of 25, which each serve two-year terms, for up to four terms.
The application to become a member of this or any other Brooklyn community board is available on the Borough President's website.
