QUEENS, NY –The Queens Borough Board, chaired by Queens Borough President Donovan Richards Jr., will hold a virtual meeting on Monday, February 7, 2022, at 5:30pm.

The meeting will include a presentation from supporters of a proposed resolution that calls for the landlords of existing and new apartment residential units to transition to a smoke-free apartment policy.

Due to an unforeseen scheduling conflict, the New York City Civilian Complaint Review Board’s presentation initially scheduled for February 7 will be rescheduled to a later Queens Borough Board gathering.

This meeting will be conducted virtually with Borough Board members participating via videoconference. The meeting will also be live-streamed to the public on the Borough President’s website at www.queensbp.org.

About the Borough Board

The Borough Board is chaired by the Borough President under the New York City Charter and comprised of the borough’s City Council members and the chairperson of each Community Board in the borough.  The Board focuses on issues dealing with land use, development, public policy, budget, and other important matters with potential borough-wide implications. The Board hears presentations from City officials and others and, as part of the land use review process, is sometimes called upon to vote on land use questions that impact more than one Community Board District.
