    As they stand now, community boards are useless. Honestly, what purpose do they serve besides giving people with spare time on their hands something to do. Case in point, CB2 took up bike lanes on Skillman Avenue, and decided they were not needed nor wanted. DeBlasio said screw you, I'm putting them in. Our esteemed councilman who was against them promptly flip-flopped and agreed with DeBlasio. Originally, I had thought that the community board was a way for the community to weigh in as to policies that would affect the community. If that is not the case and politicians like VanBramer and DeBlasio do not care about what the community thinks. why are there community boards in the first place?
